That Fall-Outs record is UNREAL! They were mostly puttin shit out in the 80's- with alla those other Seattle garage rockers like Rob Vasquez's bands.
I remember buying that record 'cause it looked like some sort VU freakout (I was 14 at the time) and being just blown away when I got home and put it on. Then, when I moved to Seattle when I was 17 or 18, I lived with this chick who was sister-in-law to the singer from Gas Huffer and ex-wife/baby momma to Rob Vasquez (Night Kings, Nights and Days, etc.). We had a bbq one summer afternoon, and who should show up but ALL of the Fallouts (singer's nephew's band actually played), Mark Arm and Steve Turner, and all of Gas Huffer. It was a teenage fanboy's dream come true.
Also, the "Mr. Zero" record that Get Hip put out in, like 1997 rules pretty hard, too. I think the band was led by some former Billy Childish associate from France, and they only put out that one LP. The first song kills: "Ima woman eater! Yeah! A woman eater! Listen!"
