Various artists: Claws! LP (Throbbing Lobster #6) Boston, 1985. V.A. Claws! LP (Throbbing Lobster #6) 1985. 15 songs: repeat appearances by Classic Ruins, Turbines, Prime Movers, Unattached, Underachievers, plus Willie Alexander, Volcano Suns [Mission of Burma++], Mighty Ions ["Pedro Morales" -their piss-take on "California uber Alles"], Primevils [The Real Kids minus Alpo], Vandykes [ex-Unnatural Axe & LaPeste], New Parts From Old [ex-Sorry], Capture the Flag, Actual Size [from Pittsburgh, managed by Joyce, of course: ex-Ground Zero], and Last Stand and Buzz and the Gang [both halves of Noonday Underground]. Spin did a two or three-page spread on us around this time, and Claws! was the top indie record in the college radio charts, but you still couldn't buy our stuff in most places. We took on a bunch more distributors, but every one of them ended up ripping us off...
Available only on original 1985 vinyl: new/unplayed $16. [sealed copies are available for the same price: please see 'about Throbbing Lobster' for details!]
