BING SELFISH - Selfish Works 7" EP (Messthetics #702): a limited edition of 465 reissue of the original 12" from 1983: 11+ minutes of further DIY/artpop adventures from the post-Homosexuals / This Heat / Rock in Opposition squats. (In exile.).
Sometime in 1982 Bing Selfish, Amos a/k/a Jim Whelton, Chris Gray, Rob 'Murphy' Storey, Joe Torres (a/k/a Victor Lounge of Milk From Cheltenham), Rodrigo Lodwick (who'd played in Rob and Bing's original 1977/78 "punk" group, The Good For Nothings), Rita Chuli (who married Lepke Buchwalter and had a cassette on her own), Gabriel (MfC sax), and Enric Villalba (better known as Victor Nubla of Micromassa) gathered in Barcelona to record an Amos LP, but the only record to emerge from those sessions was "Selfish Works" - five Bing Selfish-led tracks.
The original 12" came with two different covers back in the day, and like the Hot Club Murphy 12" neither of them revealed anything about who was playing on the record. 125 disks remained (ludicrously!!) unsold in 2011, so Messthetics silk-screened jackets for those with, at last, proper personnel listings:
Now "Selfish Works" is a Messthetics 7" with lovingly-restored audio, liner-notes, and essential trainspotting details, in a numbered edition of 465 with five of Bing's drawings (in a variety of colors that are not green).
$5 [counts as one CD postage in the U.S./Canada: please choose $4.95 shipping option for overseas.]
