Hot Nasties - The Hot Nasties Tape (1980)
One of the things that we're often asked by helpful folks around town is, "what tapes are you missing? What are you looking for?" Our standard response has become: we don't know. More and more, it's tapes that we didn't know existed that we're finding. Like this one, from the James Muretich collection...
Lining up the sequence number on this with the other Social Blemishes entries on Discogs (our new crack) suggests that this tape came after the band's 7" single. A bunch of these tracks show up on the Nasty Bob Presents... compilation that came out in the mid-2000s (and features the same band photo that appears on this tape). This tape features "Barney Rubble" (which, we're going to go on record as saying, is a song that was made for Nardwuar and the Evaporators) and some other great tracks - in fact, some of this stuff is perhaps better than what showed up on their Invasion of the Tribbles EP.
