Jungle Nausea

Well, I've been working on the blog long enough that I can download a few more John N files, and golly-gee the winner is YOU!!  Here's something he submitted that sounded interesting, I have not even carpet bombed this one, but what the hell, it sounds like the kind of thing I like to post (1982).....attaching the write up that came with it, likely more descriptive than anything I could write anyway.......let me know what ya think, I won't hear this one until probably tomorrow.

Jungle Nausea formed at the dawn of the 80s when some members of SMEGMA recruited other Portland new-music enthusiasts (including poster artist Mike King) for a project that would combine punk, new wave, American roots music, and a sense of humor. They weren't much like the other local bands of the era, but that wasn't what they were going for. Instead they found their own twisted path, playing the heck out of their mix of conventional and homemade instruments and getting unintended sounds out of their rhythm machine. The live shows were few, but incredibly memorable. This release combines their 1982 EP in its entirety, and a whole side of unreleased live and studio tracks. All tracks engineered by the legendary Mike Lastra of SMEGMA.
