Here's the tracklist w/ commentary...
(1) A.H. KRAKEN
(2) A.H. KRAKEN
(3) A.H. KRAKEN
From their brutal, lathery live set @ KDVS, broadcast on 24 Nov, 2008; includes a station ID.
(4) GIFT OF GOATS
"Death to the Outsider"
(5) GIFT OF GOATS
"Sleeping All Day Long"
(6) GIFT OF GOATS
"Live from the Pegasus"
Before the Mayyors formed, bassist Mark played with this Davis-based band that was one of the Sacto area's very best mayhem-bringing live acts. They recorded nine songs with Chris Woodhouse, and all of them made it to vinyl. Tracks 4 & 5 are from the 4-way split LP (with JonnyX & the Groadies, Corpse Fucks Corpse, and Get Get Go) on Omnibus Records. Track 6 is from the 7" on Omnibus. Other GoG members included now-SF-based visual artist Jay Howell (perhaps you've seen his animation series "Forest City Rockers Motorcycle Club" which remains central to the Mayyors' limited web presence), former KDVS GM Justin Kable, singer Mick Mucus, host of longtime KDVS fan-fave show "Hardcore Party: the Chicken Years", who's otherwise known for fronting bands such as Anal Mucus, unkuT:Hunks, Girls Soccer, and Feces Munchers, and Upside Dan, who's been in a number of bands with Mick since their teenage years growing up in Concord, CA.
(7) FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS
"Teenage Guerillas"/"Exquisite Corpse"
from live @ KDVS broadcast aired on 7 July, 2008...This young Orange County band really surprised me with their heady sarcasm, early-80s time-capsule sound, and clever arty riffs and arrangements.
(8) WAX MUSEUMS
"Claw You Like a Cat"/"Magnet II"/"Tunguska"
(9) WAX MUSEUMS
"I Eat Vomit"
(10) WAX MUSEUMS
"Tina Goes to Work"/"Chuck Berry Holiday"
recorded/broadcast live on KDVS on 18 August, 2008...The Wax Museums blazed through 11 funnypunk anthems with jawdropping precision after playing (and singing) backup for NoBunny perfectly as well. Apparently, the best-tasting vomit comes up a few hours after chowing down a cheese-skirted burger at Sacto's Squeeze Inn.
(13) STANDARD TRIBESMEN
(14) STANDARD TRIBESMEN
(15) STANDARD TRIBESMEN
recorded/broadcast live on KDVS on 24 April, 2008...This band was the main vehicle of Mayyors drummer Julian after The Sores just sorta stopped playing and before the Mayyors formed. And the Tribesmen continued until late last year, culminating in an absolutely tremendous and vinyl-ready demo recorded by Chris Woodhouse, who had joined the band on bass for the last few months. This version of the band featured three other KDVS DJs including some splendid sax-work that nobody saw coming from DJ Boomer. Get that guy a new band already! If you plotted The Sonics, the Contortions, and Feedtime on a graph, the Standard Tribesmen are somewhere in between that triangle, shading a bit toward the Sonics' corner.
(16) METH TEETH
(17) METH TEETH
"People Will Say Anything"/"Failures Selected by God"
These are the best three from the 9-song session they laid down live @ KDVS on 5 July, 2008, which sounds like their best recordings yet (pending that Woodsist release I can't wait to hear once it's out!) as it is free of the tape-hiss evident on their 7" and tour cassette.
(18) THE WHINES
"Down the 2 Tracks"
(19) THE WHINES
(20) THE WHINES
recorded/broadcast live @ KDVS on 16 March, 2008...The dazzling guitarwork of this Portland band gets a lot more room to breathe here as compared to their 7".
(21) CHRIS WOODHOUSE
The guitarist and sound architect of the Mayyors recorded this privately at home in 2002. When I heard that 18th Dye was gonna make a record with Steve Albini, I expected it to sound a lot more like this...a killer dreampop wallopper!
(22) SEXY PRISON
"Universal Order of 2011"
(23) SEXY PRISON
"Without Us Some Guys Would Starve"
Two songs from last summer's most outrageous party record, Filth Flarn Filth
. I described this before as clattery dance-party weirdpunk like Cheveu, but only if Etienne traded his guitar for a lithe and lively postpunk bass guitar...plus some wonderfully wacked pop-culture-jam garnish. Many legendary live shows live on in memory. Mayyors singer John first tweaked the Memory Man knobs in this outfit. Woodhouse and Julian add extra percussion on track 22.
(24) CORPSE FUCKS CORPSE
From their Feb 2003 demos recorded by Woodhouse, these are the best recorded moments of the band which gave John a broader palette of vocal and performance tricks. Quirky hardcore with plenty of power still intact after the art-damage....sort of a turn-of-the-millenium take on early Saccharine Trust.

If you need more reasons why to donate...
* Freeform KDVS in my opinion
is one of the three best radio stations around
, and the only in this echelon that has been student-run for 46 years
* We need the money
....Listener support accounts for two-thirds of our annual budget.
* It's tax deductible
* Unlike any fundraiser I've heard of, we thank you with gifts that are a dollar-for-dollar value
(and sometimes even more!) for every dollar you pledge.
* A successful fundraiser validates all of this effort
we go through to provide outstanding programming that is streamable and downloadable for your time-killing, office-doldrum-alleviating, music-discovering pleasure. If you must know, I put about 4-6 hours of listening to deliver a two-hour AFS podcast every week.
* If it weren't for KDVS, bands would very likely not even have anywhere to play between the Bay Area and Portland....KDVS Presents books a majority of the good shows around here
. We keep Sacto and Davis from becoming more like Fresno and Turlock.
