These Danbury stalwarts recently called it quits and in honor of the momentous event I give you a recording of their hemi- semi final performance. Recorded live at the Wamleg in Wallingford, CT as part of the CT Punk Fest, you'll hear that these dudes went out with anything but a whimper.
It's always a treat for me to roll into a town and find myself on a bill with a band who are smart, funny, and who ROCK. JJCnV totally fit the bill. I hope you dig this recording of them live at the Loudhouse as much as I enjoyed making it.
How does one describe these dudes? Power trio? Student of Robert Fripp? Wild mountain music boys? Psychedelic garage rock? I have no idea, so I'll let the music do the talking. And the band, too, cuz there's an interview after the music. Listen!
All the way from Detroit, Carmel Liburdi sings of serial killers, organized religion, and the perils of personal politics. Here she is live at Neverending Books in New Haven, CT. She's accompanied by Gwen MacPhee on acoustic bass and together they kick up some dust!
The world's most neurotic professional wrestler is also the world's most neurotic noise artist. He threatened to paint the streets of Brooklyn in gore, and this is what happened. Listen at your own risk.
Connecticut's long running doyens of the bizarre lay it down weird and wonderful in Naugatuck (if you live in Connecticut you'll appreciate why that's a heavy statement). And did I mention that LAMB BOMBS rock? Well, they rock. Listen and love.

Originally released on the TPOS label in 1993 on cassette. A rare acoustic/ electric set by Danbury's immortal sludgemeisters. From the original liner notes:
"This is a document of one sweaty night in Newtown. If you were there, you were there. If not, turn up the heat, quaff the brew, and poke a hole in your ear with a toothpick. For this is HED and that's the way to do it."
Since you're online right now, check out this amazing remaster of some HED studio recordings:
