8 Eyed Spy (1981)

In this poorly produced collection of studio and live recordings, a gang of erstwhile No Wavers (basically this is Lydia Lunch's touring band) do Rhythm & Blues.

Alas, when it comes to primeval Punk Blues, The Gun Club did better, and when it comes to brainy post-modernism, The Raybeats did better (whose Pat Irwin is a member here coincidentally).

For fanatics only. Get it here (vinyl rip, includes pics of the sleeve, inner sleeve, and vinyl).

I'm a fanatic. I listened to this non-stop during high school.

I'm not saying it's terrible. It's just not a proper record. It's a bunch of professional demos and some live recordings.
