Couch Potatoes - Curiosity Rocks Cassette 1982
Couch Potatoes became Couch Flambeau. And they're from Milwaukee, and still do an occasional show here and there. They're wildly entertaining, and funny. The songs are catchy,clever and the guitar playing usually borders on punk rock meets Eddie Van Halen. Jay will like that one. Well, he can play! Yeah this is weird,me posting a cassette,but that how this originally came out, and this is from 1982. And that's how a lot of local bands just starting out put out their first releases in the 1980's. They are one of a kind,and this cassette is warts and all, so don't expect perfection. The first track has obvious tape issues,but then the noise goes away,pretty quick.(I must have played this thing 100 times back in the day) The rest of the tape sounds fine. I was just warning you, dear listener. It was recorded a long time ago, 27 years to be exact, so deal with it. I think they've got "something", and I don't mean a disease or anything like that, I think they're talented, and original. I posted some other things from them, but this is vintage Couch Flambeau. I think we all thought that they were going to get signed to a major label and they would never talk to us little people anymore, but it didn't happen. It's a shame they didn't get signed, because they are/were good! Couch Potatoes Curiosity Rocks
