Hi Squid/ The Rape Of Nanking by Laszlo Alexander


Another exhibit from The Museum Of Strange & Deadly Foods (MOSADF). This product is Hi Squid and is basically a couple of dried tentacles. The musical accompaniment is entitled The Rape Of Nanking by Laszlo Alexander. It was recorded in the late 40's or early '50's and come from a 10" lp called The Secret Music Of China. If you listen carefully, amid all the carnage you will hear an early use of the theremin.

Martin,
thanks for posting all this great music/food products!! I'm a big fan of your group Bloodloss (as well as Lubricated Goat, and of course the Monkeywrench!) Are there any live recordings of Bloodloss? I never got a chance to see you guys play, and from what Mark Arm says, you guys pulled off some great stuff live.

Hi. Glad you like the stuff I'm posting. I do have some Bloodloss live tapes which I have long intended to go through and see if there's any thing useful- listening to old tapes can sometimes be a strange and depressing journey however but check back over the next few weeks and I'll see what I've got. Thanks- Martin
