Welcome to The Tuna Melt Music Sharity Blog!

It is here that I post old records that I've ripped
to Mp3 format (and grouped in .ZIP files) via File Sharing Sites,
album cover scans and, sometimes,
somewhat coherent ramblings related to said shares.

None of the shares here are "borrowed" from other blogs.
All of the items shared are rips of Out-of-Print
(or, at least, very difficult to get)
Vinyl Records from my own collection.

Come on in. Look around.
Scroll downward to find available links.
I hope you find something you like.

If you don't,
you can always come back later, as the variety
of what is made available should be pretty wide-ranging.

The Zig Zag People: The Zig Zag People Take Bubble Gum Music Underground

Whoa! This Bubble Gum Tastes Kinda Funny...!

Ever wondered what happens when you let a bunch of Hippies make the Bubble Gum you're fond of chewing on? Well, wonder no more! On this record The Zig Zag People take Bubble Gum Music underground (which goes a long way toward explaining the title of the album).

The Zig Zaggers in question were, actually, apparently just a bunch of studio musicians recruited by Decca Records to cash in on both the Bubble Gum and Psychedelic music crazes that were sweeping the world in 1969. The album consists of radical reworkings of some of the top Bubble Gum hits of the day as well as two interesting original songs.

Sink yer Chompers into This!

  1. Little Bit of Soul
  2. Hanky Panky
  3. Simon Says
  4. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy
  5. Sally Goes to the Dentist (Available in 8 & 16MM)
  6. 1 2 3 Red Light
  7. Chewy Chewy
  8. Indian Giver
  9. Peel it Off Your Face

That is a band I think you might like, and I think kinda fits your blog. Its not on vinyl, but its still rare. It is their new ep leak, I included the cover and everything. You should check it out and post, if you think your readers will like it, I like the stuff you put on your blog and I love this, so I assume others will!

Their name is Darling's Cabinet of Sundry Horror, and its kind of like gothic folk/protopunk/indie/circus music, For fans of the birtday party and the violent femmes, and maybe even marilyn manson or Tom waits.
