MESSTHETICS #102: London D.I.Y. (II)

MESSTHETICS #102 CD: 'D.I.Y.' and indie postpunk from London & the Home Counties: 1978-1981 (Messthetics #102)

Messthetics #102: Rarities from The Tea Set, The Lines, Steve Treatment, Vacants, Walking Floors, Metrophase, Nigel Simpkins, Astronauts, London PX, Restricted Hours, Auntie Pus, Frank Details, and The Dad. Never-before-heard treasures from the Lines, Dry Rib, M.L.R., Innerpropriates, Walking Floors, The Syrups, and London PX. 16pp book / 4500-word liners / photos galore / 23 tracks.

Messthetics #102 pays special attention to some of D.I.Y.’s earliest practitioners and most effective evangelists: many were friends of the late Nikki Sudden and Epic Soundtracks (and devotees of Marc Bolan): Steve Treatment, Metrophase, Tea Set… There are Damned connections (Steve T, Tea Set, Auntie Pus), Times connections (Dry Rib/Syrups), school connections, some general West London incest…and a handful of folks who simply stopped paying attention to anyone else and struck out on their own. $11.00

Tea Set-'Sing Song'
