not new music this week

Debris - Static Disposal (1976, Pig)

Some wild mid 70s greatness from Chickasha, Oklahoma of all places! Debris' Static Disposal has finally been getting some deserved recognition over the past decade, due largely in part to Anopheles Records 1999 cd release and vinyl reissues in 2002 and 2008. The original release was privately pressed in a limited quantity.

Debris' influences are well documented around this internet, and pretty much hit the nail on the head: Funhouse era Stooges, Captain Beefheart, Roxy Music. There are also a few comparisons to Pere Ubu, MX-80 and Chrome. I guess the impressive thing is that they managed to jam all of these influences, in practically equal parts, into a ten hour recording session AND come out of it with an album that is pretty damn awesome from start to finish.

I've only included the original lp track listing, but the cd issue has several bonus tracks including covers of John Cale's 'Gun' and the Stooges 'Real Cool Time.'
