**Dog Faced Hermans -The Running Man- Mental Decay For All Ages LP Konkurrel Records (1991)
**Breather -Bury the Mystique- Loves and Disloves LP Sonic Incision Records (1984)
My number one favorite non-collector album - meaning it tends to sell for a reasonable price (got mine for about 8$) and there doesn't seem to be too much buzz about it. There is something I find personally intriguing about this record and the mind behind it - Robert Bolman aka Bliss Blast. The lyrics and their delivery - creepy, stalker-esk - almost seem to rival that of German Shepherd’s Booty Jones. Though, Beather’s lyrics are not pedophilic in any way (like that of Booty Jones), rather very extremely neurotic....I've recently heard that Mr. Bolman still has many sealed copies of this record! More information at MinimalWave.org Forum. I may pull out some Bliss Blast demos I have in my possession in the near future - stay tuned for that!
