This is a strange dollar bin score for a couple of weeks ago, or $2 bin at least from the price sticker, I think even the Bay Area dollar bins are more expensive than other places. Trickle down economics coming in to play, as another social media company goes IPO in the city, fucked up 12" records, that nobody other than me wants anything to do with, double in price in order that the record store owner can share in silicon valley's prosperity.
Anyhow, this is a local private press experimental, new wave'ish electro record out of San Francisco, by a band called Dub Oven. This e.p has an entry on discogs, but no mention anywhere else, so I think this is an internet first. Claiming to be put out on Tenderloin West Music, the Tenderloin being a pleasant neighborhood/skid row resisting gentrification despite proximity to the new Twitter HQ.
The producers Gary Miles and Blase Smith were synthesizer players on the local punk scene in SF although I don't know much about them beyond that, I'm not sure if the guys on the front cover in tribal outfits carrying a gas oven through the jungle are them or not, still its one of the better covers.
