Artist: NUDGE SQUIDFISH
Title: 20,000 Leagues Under Nashville
Format: LP
Label: Columbus Discount
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"During a self-imposed exile in Nashville around 1985 ,frequent Quota and former "Peter Laughner" of the True Believers, Nudge Squidfish sent cassette transmissions back to his friends Mike Rep & Tommy Jay in Harrisburg, OH. From hours of cassettes Rep compiled this collection of psychedelic pop songs, synthisizer experiments, harmonic convergences, and fragments of his rockn roll past that rival Mayo Thompson or Brian Wilson in complexity, pop sensibility, authentic absurdity. Think were talking it up? Well, Hey!... this IS the gem that launched Reps storied cassette label, Old Age(/No Age). Upon Squids return to Columbus, he would link up with the late Jim Shepard to form the legendary V-3. Painstakingly mastered for vinyl by Mike Rep from the original cassette. Edition of 500 LPs." - Columbus Discount.

Artist: NUDGE SQUIDFISH
Title: You Cant Have Aliens Without The Squid
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Nudge Squidfish is one of the singular figures to emerge from the Columbus sub-underground rock scene of the 1970s. He was a member of The True Believers (along with Mike Rep & Tommy Jay). He cut a single for the New Age label in 82, and a couple of odd solo LPs while he was living in Nashville later in the 80s. He was a member of V-3 (along with Jim Shepard) after that. He also released a bonkers full-length cassette on Old Age that was subsequently vinylized by Columbus Discount. More recently, he has become a highly regarded disseminator of UFO videos (Google it). The music Nudge does is all over the place, and his new album takes advantage of this aggressive eclecticism as well as his urge to document it. Recorded between 1975 and 2006, the sounds here range from prog-damaged garage-rock pus to demented rambling to neo-lounge inventions recalling Gary Wilson at his most ribald, or maybe even some alternate universe version of Armand Schaubroeck. Either way, this means were talking about world-class otherness, with lyrics that are not particularly radio safe. Were hoping this project will be but the beginning of our work with Mr. Squidfish. There is a new era dawning. Dont find yourself on the losers side of history." --Byron Coley, 2017 Edition of 300." - Feeding Tube.
