Turkey Bones & The Wild Dogs - Purple Noise Sandwich (1984)

12" EP from these Scottish noise warriors.

Fuck all info on them now but they were like a goth-swamp
mixture of Bad Seeds vibe and JAMC feedback and chaos.

I saw them in North London somewhere - Hope & Anchor/
Moonlight Club? - a sprawling mess of lanky drunk/drugged?
blokes hunched over instruments with this fantastic din that
sort of went into tunes ...... oh yeah, the bass player spent
most of the gig hitting the strings with a beer bottle.

The 3 tracks here cannot capture the madness of that night
but the 1st track "Raymond" still has a very sinister feel.
