Really? Bizarre…up here in Anchorage, it actually is fairly ‘easy to find,’ as both locations of Mammoth Music (the local ‘alternative’ music store) regularly have at least one copy on the shelves, and I even see it fairly regularly at Camelot…

Tell ya what…anybody wants a copy, send me a check/money order made out to either Mammoth Music or Camelot Records (saves you from worrying about my cashing your check), and I’ll send you a copy of Fixed…we can work out postage later…

First off, I’m insanely jealous whenever someone casually starts off a post about BlackHappy with “some friends of mine….” Anway…

They came up here to Anchorage for two shows, but, unfortunately, I managed to miss them both. Very upset…however, I have managed to pick up both _Friendly Dog Salad_ and _Peghead_, and am very hooked…if you could pass on my appreciation (and generic fandom ``) to your friends ``, I’d appreciate it…

Was curious if anyone else out there had discovered Blackhappy…incredibly good band. Two guitarists, two drummers, a bass, two trombones and a sax…lots of sound, powerful music.

Was curious if anyone else out there had discovered Blackhappy…incredibly good band. Two guitarists, two drummers, a bass, two trombones and a sax…lots of sound, powerful music. Two albums out…Friendly Dog Salad and, more recently, Peghead. Both good, FDS is more funky…I like Peghead better. If it was possible to wear out a CD, I’d be doing it…

Don’t know the technical info (only that I got the 3-incher up here in Alaska), but the songs are ‘Too Physica’ by Adam Ant, and ‘Suck’ by Pigface. Suck is available on a couple different Pigface albums in a couple different versions.

I’ve got two…not sure where they came from though. One’s on RCA Victor (Swquentiae: Gregorian Chant/K. Ruhland [GD 71953]), the other on ProArte (Gregorian Chants * Ruhland [CDD 287]). Got ’em as presents a while ago. Oh, that first album should be Sequentiae.

Bingo…you’ve probably got a ton of answers to this already, but the song is “You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth” off of Meatloaf’s first album, _Bat Out Of Hell_. Good, good album…awesome music.

Also, picked up a single for Religion…good remixes, including a _really_ fast techno version remixed by the Prodigy…two mixes of Crapage by the Orb, and having the Orb remixing 242 is just bizarre…and one fun mix of Religion with lots of samples from Deep Throat.

Actually, I’ve never quite sat down and puzzled out which track is which song, especially on the newer album. No numbers on the sleeve, 14 listed titles on the inside, and another (apparent) three titles on the back of the sleeve. My guess is that Animal is split into three parts…end up with 16 tracks, which works out right with the disc. Odd, though…just what are the bits on the back of the sleeve then?
