Here Comes a Big Black Cloud! and Hornet Leg live @ KDVS in Studio A
Wednesday, April 7 at 9pm, by invite only (RSVP me at rickele(AT)gmail(DOT)com)
Total strangers, get in touch...I just need everyone RSVP so I can know how much staff I need on-hand. There are rules relating to staff-to-guest ratios. Free show, donations welcome. Live recording will be aired on a future AFS. Your hooting 'n hollering will take the place of awkward dead air between songs. It'll hardly sound contrived because these bands are surely a ton of fun.

Also, on Saturday, April 10...
KDVS Presents @ The Hub
1819 23rd Street in Sacramento
(between R and S Streets)

Eat Skull, Nice Dresses II, and Pistol Pete!

This five-song 7" from Twisted Value is one of the most mysterious punk/HC records in the 7" vinyl stacks at KDVS...

It's not on the Indiana page on the Collectorscum.com "Discography of the American New Wave", but if it were, I believe it'd say...

Twisted Value Fort Wayne
- Legal Murder / I'm Sick of You // Social Outcast / H20 / You Give Me Lice 7" Weasle, 198?
Delightfully frantic yet plodding methodical slop-core driven by peculiarly rhythmic syllabic delivery, nervous vocal intonation, and skeletal HC bleat. Compare to Georgia's Vex, perhaps?-RE

Our copy has no pic sleeve. The only notes on the inner label besides song titles and times and Weasle Records are...
* Words & Music by Twisted Value
* Produced by Twisted Value
* Recorded at Omnisound Studios, Inc. Fort Wayne, Indiana

The record was added to the KDVS library in July of 1985, but there's nothing else to indicate the date of release.

Can anyone please comment about the origin of the record or the band Twisted Value? There are a couple of comp-worthy songs on here, so it's strange that I can't find anything else about them on the internet. Please get in touch...THANKS!
