Heavens to Murgatroid first cassette from August 1990- 5 songs

24 Feb

Heavens to Murgatroid, a high-energy power pop band from New Hampshire, played A TON of shows in the early 1990s, and toured the entire USA at least twice. They rubbed elbows with bands like The Vouts and The Cavedogs. HTM were the band that had the big pink school bus, and bassist Tim McCoy had a bass that looked like an electric banjo.

Some of these songs made it onto HTM’s self-titled CD, which has now become a valuable collector’s item. I once gave a copy of that CD to Deniz Tek of Radio Birdman- he loved it.

Thanks to Rick Twombly for granting me permission to post these tracks.

It Figures six-song cassette November 1986

24 Mar

Great power-pop band that played the Midwest a few times. The guys in It Figures grew up in the small hamlet that produced Aerosmith- Somersworth, New Hampshire. I once saw ’em play a gig with the Chicago band Green in Rockford, Illinois; it was one of the funnest nights I’ve ever had. Here is their six-song demo from almost 25 years ago, thanks to Rick Twombly for allowing me to post this for you to enjoy.
