Giving the Gift of the U-Men

Christmas is always a busy time at the Lamestain household. Our Yuletide tradition of dressing up like Michael Anderson of Blood Circus (dressed up like Santa, of course) and handing out Yummy singles to the neighborhood children brought much joy and laughter, and we can’t wait to do it again next year. Plenty of eggnog was consumed, holiday ham was enjoyed, gay grunge apparel was donned, and Tad songs were caroled. Plus there were gifts! And we are saving your gift, which is also the best gift, for last: the U-Men Step on a Bug: The Red Toad Speaks record.


Produced by John Nelson and the U-Men at Crow Studios, Step on a Bug was released by Black Label records in 1988. Also released on cassette tape, this and the Hellcows LP were the only full-lengths on Black Label. Tupelo Recording Company also released this on vinyl, though I think they mostly handled overseas pressings. You can check out our earlier U-Men posting for more info and junk here.


We were also lucky enough to see the debut performance of the Tom Price Desert Classic a few weeks back at Fantagraphics Bookstore’s 1-year anniversary party. Tom fronted the band, and was joined by ex-Huffers, Don Blackstone and Matt Wright, Joe Kilbourne (the Derelicts), and Martin Bland (Bloodloss, Lubricated Goat, Monkeywrench, and our recent record discovery, Bushpig!) The band sounded great, and a great time was had by all.


We can't wait to open your gifts now.

I have this record on vinyl, as well as their EP. I ordered the EP by mail after reading an interview with them in the Rocket when I was a teenager. Long live the U-Men!

Hi, I have this one on cd, and I got the cd version of deep six with their song "they", on my myspace you can watch the picture that's in the cd booklet from the u-men

Thanks for posting these tunes. It's a great album. I never knew this was available on CD, as Yannick mentions. I actually did a post on my own site about how this was one of my Top 5 from the grunge era that needed to be reissued on CD. Anyone who's interested can read my pro-grunge essay that originally appeared in Backfire Magazine. http://ademtepedelen.com/respect_iframe.php?id=3

I will post some pictures of the cd on my myspace,..., it's a copie from a media center sow it's not in top condition, but I got it for 1,5 € and the cd works fine, I will sell this one if I can find a better one

atothemft's pro-grugnge essay is something that I think everyone should read! Having been there when the g-word was being termed,I think this is the only good explination of what really went on! Thanks, T-Man

I was a teenager in Seattle in the 80s, and my husband remembers us referring to mosh pits as "grunge pits." I cannot recall if he's accurate or not. Anyone else remember calling it that?

Always enjoy the U-Men, and the TPDC set was pretty good too. Maybe a recording someday soon with hope.
Cheers!

I have a copy on vinyl of STOP SPINNING that I'm in the process of digitizing since I can't find it anywhere. More than happy to send you a copy once I'm done, just let me know the best way to get to you.

I liked the U-Men best when Robbie played the bass, She had an outrageous rack and never wore a bra. God she was hot.

Hey Lamestain.

Im an old friend of the grungefm radio. I did found your blog, and i like very much it.

I like bands like Pond, U-Men, Mono Men, Mudhoney, etc, and i have almost all discs, but i havent some songs very "hidden" and that i can´t buy in my country, because its very difficult found it.

Well, I like U- Men and I have all disocography, but two songs not: "the fumes" and "a year and a day", both of Stop Spinning EP. Can you upload in your blog, plz?
