Welcome to the Moose Lodge

My friend Bruno Bersani has the distinction of being one of the funniest people I know, and also bears a rich history of being in some really great bands, but Moose Lodge somehow escaped me...until now. The year is 1984 and the place, Eugene Oregon. Bruno is a man in his early twenties with a cheap synth perched atop and ironing board, a notebook full of bizarre lyrics and a desire to make DEVO-esque robot punk. Legend has it that many copies of this tape were destroyed by Bruno himself, but fortunately at least one was spared and made its way on to the brilliant Eugene-o-centric blog Panic on 13th. Ironically I have been urging Bruno for the last few years to start a new wave band, little did I know that he already had, 28 years ago. That is just how cool Bruno is. You will love this tape.

i lived in eugene,in the whittaker, for 6 months in 2003,one of the loneliest periods of my life. id skateboard in the rain to my shitty job and go home at midnight drink wine and write. no friends except the extremely crusties down the street who got really old after a while. i was however within walking distance of red apple,taco bell,7-11,a porns store,some dumb yellow bar,and the crust house i mentioned before. i wish i could get this flyer back,i swiped it off a telephone pole..it was a band called Contender,some meth metal guys,one of em was a fat,and it had a picture of his drums set- 6 bass drums,30 cymbals,15 toms,3 snares,and a paird of those stupid round sunglasses. that flyer was classic

d/l this right now,this description sounds too good
