Process Of Elimination E.P.

   Here's the classic Mid West V/A Process Of Elimination E.P. Their were three pressings (that I know of) of this record. Mine being a third, with the yellow labels. The original Process of Elimination artwork was by Jeff Nelson (Minor Threat/Dischord Records), but got lost in the mail. Early ads for the Process EP featured a completely different mock-up of the cover, presumably based on Jeff's art. My favorite on here is the great early version of Toxic Reason's Riot Squad, with the fix running a close second. The Necros track is cool too. Honestly except for maybe the Mcdonalds track (which I think is a joke) There all good. I didn't have the room to include all of the band bios but, I put links for most of their Myspaces.

Benwah Torpedos (Fingerprints Single)

  After searching the web for a while, I basically came up empty on this one. I can tell you, the band was from Philadelphia, and the single is from 1981, that's it. Both tracks are great, Pop/Punk, that's well produced. I found the b side a few places on the web,(I think it was comped, on one of the Hyped To Deaths) but I prefer Fingerprints, I really like the intro. Anyway, as usual, any info you may have is always appreciated.

The Rudies (Sherri Goodbye Single)

   The Rudies were a late 70's outfit from NYC, who named themselves after a reference on a Vivian Stanshall (Bonzo Dog Band) album. The original lineup was: Ed Ryan, (Guitar, Vocals) Razz, (Drums) and Mark Charles Lamendola, (Bass, Vocals). In 1978, they added John Maguire on, (Guitar, Vocals) and became a four piece. I think this was their only record, but I'm not sure. Go check out their MYSPACE PAGE.
