DC’s Monorchid were a five piece comprised of ex-members of Circus Lupus and Bumblescrump. They released two lps and three seven inches before they broke up in 1998. I was lucky enough to be driving from Olympia to Minneapolis the same time that they were on tour so I got to catch them live three times. This song is from their Gravity Records 7” and is my favorite song they played live.

These guys are playing at the Touch & Go Records 25th Anniverary Fest in Chicago – only $35 for three days, legendary bands with all the original members and all the proceeds to the children’s charities in the Chicago area. Yea!
