**Meth Teeth -This is Not My Home- Everything Went Wrong LP Woodsist Records (2009?)
Meth Teeth myspace. Woodsist Records has two festivals coming up in California (with Moon Duo, Mantles, Eat Skull + lots more) - if you go to one, go to the one at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur. I saw Cluster play there once with Wooden Shjips and it was pretty rad....more information at HenryMiller.org.

**Ron Geesin -Agitation in Anticipation of Offspring, Part 'Y'- John Peel Presents Top Gear LP Compilation BBC Recordings
Released back in 1969. This composer has a pretty extensive discography - not sure if this song is a reflection of his typically fare or if its just the odd one out of the bunch - more investigation needed. Information on Geesin can be found at RonGeesin.com.

Released back in 1977. There are some epic videos online of this band performing...here's one of them doing the title track off this album:
They are probably playing along to music in this video - that type of TV program. BBC did a documentry on this group a couple years back.....its all on Youtube for viewing. Here's the first segment:
