thinking fellers union local #282
i heard of them ages ago and always thought the band name was pretty odd, finally got around to listening to them the other day and the few songs i've heard are great, sort of pere ubu meets polvo or something..

anyway, just wondered if there's any fans on here with album recommendations and suchlike.

A very interesting and impossible to pigeonhole group.

Very good news on the Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 front. A vinyl reissue program of all of their albums and EPs is underway. Also, the band has a new Instagram page and digital offerings of their music for sale on their bandcamp page. Further details can be found on their website:

The band hasn't played live since 2011. While I hope this recent activity might mean a reunion tour in the not too distant future, I'm not counting on it. I do hope they make some $ from these endeavors and maybe make a few new fans.

Hmm, the first post on this thread in over 16 years. Wonder if that's some kind of record.
