Psychick TV - Kondole/Dead Cat

Psychick TV - Ov Dolphins and Whales
Label - Temple
Date - 1989

Picked this up at a used record shop in Georgetown called Aquarius (*correction - Orpheus, not Aquarius) back in 1994. The shop was appropriately located only a few blocks from the 'Exorcist steps.' Pretty weird record. Very strange hidden track. Hamburger Lady...

Ahhh... RIP Aquarius Records. They morphed, kinda, into Smash Records. Last time I wandered over to Georgetown, I was shocked and saddened to see that Smash was no longer there. Imagine my relief and happiness when I learned that they had merely moved... to my neighborhood!

I'm not a Psychic TV fan, but their presence here is definitely enough to cause me to bookmark the site. Best wishes!

Smash Hit! I feel honored...

yeah Aquarius was right down the street, but bigger (i think?) and less pretentious. I remember a grizzly dude with long hair and a beard who must have run the place.

p.s. the new/used (?) Smash on 18th street is actually quite alright. I got the Wartime EP there and they have handmade purses w/ female reproductive organs sewn in like stitchwork. I almost bought one too.

***correction - I think that record shop might have been called Orpheus. doing some research, I see that they moved to Clarendon (!!!)
