LR is thrilled to present a 45 from Tucson, AZs THE INHUMAN. These two tracks are complete lo fi degenerate punk, recorded in a bedroom in Tucson sometime in 1983, plucked from forgotten demo tapes and pressed for the first time ! Another testament to the genius of the 80s Tucson scene, which wouldn't have sounded out of place on the Red Snerts or Cleveland Confidential comps. FFO Bobby Soxx, Mr Science, Jimmy Smack, KBD Punk
Our take: Two-song single from this very obscure bedroom recording project from Tucson, Arizona in 1983. According to the liner notes, the Inhuman only played one show and the person behind the project didn’t do much else that we would have heard of, so it’s a miracle that these tunes found their way from an old cassette to 7” vinyl in the year 2020. The songs are cool, too! They build both songs around primitive drum machine rhythms augmented with synth, guitar, and vocals, and have a creepy, sinister vibe. The a-side lurks in the shadows with a vibe like Suicide, while the b-side gets more confrontational, giving it a Screamers-type menace. If this recording had gotten out back in the day, this would be a $200 single.
