This Strange Little Cricket

In 1981 the Tom and Marty Band had a couple of cuts on the Artifacts/yclept tape release, “This Strange Little Cricket.” Both songs were from their 1981 7″ vinyl EP.  The image to the left is from the front cover.

The Free Music Archive has posted this Artifacts compilation cassette tape release. Included on this release were also cuts from Rebby Sharp, Karen Cooper-Smith, Orthotonics, Idio-Savant, Bomis Prendin, Wm Burke’s Hideous Truth among others.

From the Album description on the Free Music Archive site:

“In 1981, after the release of the first two Bomis Prendin flex-discs, Wm. Burke (aka Key Ring Torch),who was living in a coat closet under the stairs at the Bomis Prendin house in Arlington, decided to put his own stamp on the Artifacts product line and assembled and distributed a cassette compilation he named, “This Strange Little Cricket.” His intention then was clearly to illustrate that Bomis Prendin wasn’t an entirely unique agglomeration, but was instead part of a larger community of likeminded mad scientists.

Here’s his evidence.”

I hope you enjoy it.
