The oldsters of the local scene alternately sound like Can or Spike Jones-- often in the same song. Heavy Brian Wilson perversions.
Discordia Concors is the tape that started it all. By far, the best selling tape of the BOB canon.
Extremly mild and pleasent tasting. Lenny Bruce guest stars.

Goes from cheezy metal to golden pop nugggets with an eerie ease.
Covering everything from Roger Miller to
Bruce Springsteen with a high level of lounge consciousness.
Allegedly opened for Sonic Youth in Chicago.
Ultrasuade is a feast of electric piano, quavery voice and cheap, watery drinks.

A classic collection of pop songs mostly recorded live in studio-- quickly, I assume.

A golden shower of leftovers and alternate versions from the years before Fred left.
The reclusive mystery band. Except for their famous New York tour.
Sonic Clams is a mystical mix of music and found sources-- the likes of which aren't made anymore.
37 tunes recorded in Muncie, Indiana's dorm rooms and basements.
Mid-hits from Mid-America in the mid '80s. You can almost smell the discount soda.
A broad jump into the pop era. The tape release included a comic by Ed Emmer, drawn specially for this release. This, however, does not.
Cruel, cruel fate.
