Ed Gein's Car - "Making Dick Dance" (1985), plus 2 singles

Traveling up the Jersey Turnpike about 90 miles, we have NYC's Ed Gein's Car. Again, like Decontrol (below), this is just no-bullshit rock 'n' roll, New York-style. Lots of wit here, with the hilarious "Go Down On My Dog", about a skinhead dog, and "Annette", about the ex-Mousketeer and Skippy-slinger ("You talk to me about protein, I got some protein for ya right here, Annette") Annette Funicello. But my favorite is the straight-up narrative "Boo Fuckin' Hoo", about Bernhard Goetz (the "Subway Shooter", who took down a bunch of black kids he feared were robbing him. Yeah, it was never quite...clear).

01. Bars and Brick
02. Go Down On My Dog
03. Kiss Daddy Goodnight
04. Annette
05. Boo Fuckin' Hoo
06. Progress
07. A Girl Just Like You
08. Selby
09. R.A.P.E.
10. Cream of Wheat
11. Middle (R)age
12. Die Like You Really Mean It
13. Making Dick Dance

Get the vinyl rip - re-upped 7/24/11 - HERE

"Brain Dead Baby" was a 3-track 7" that preceded the album, in 1984.

01. Brain Dead Baby
02. Too Old To Die Young
03. Wait 'til Your Father Gets Home

Get it HERE
And finally, their last release from 1989. Not sure if this was recorded around then or dug up and released posthumously. I know the singer went on to Prong or someone like that (sorry, too lazy to look it up right now...) Anyway, it's classic EGC all the way.

01. Naked Man
02. Consider Being True

All three vinyl rips are @ 320kps. Enjoy.
