HYBRID KIDS-CLAWS, LP, 1980, UK






An album of psychotic Residential defilings of beloved Christmas chestnuts laden with images of deformed kids from a former progger turned Mott The Hoople keyboardist eventually gone weird in the post punk era and soon after to cheese into a Maharishi devotee making new age tunes. Yup...quite the whacked career path, but at this stage of the game, Fisher's flipped out antics were a real treat. Though the novelty laden conceit here doesn't quite hold up for a full albums duration, there are some really astonishing bits of mad invention to be found herein. More Hybrid Kids and Morgan Fisher albums will follow soon...

Get it Here

Could you post the Fisher CD with the super-elongated Lennon piece (sorry, I forgot the tune...)? (ala Seve Reich's Slow Motion Sound). Even Yoko gave it the thumbs up.

fyi, you can buy/download both this and the covers album (the one with "D'Ya Think I'm Sexy", in 2 versions) at the online mp3 store eMusic.com ... very cheap! ... or even *free* if you sign up for the free trial and then cancel before 30 days.

Musick Master Universal said...

I have this LP since like mid 80s. it's produced 1980 on Cherry Red records, and I was copying it from an old cassette which I had found down a cellarstore of mine.

THANKS a lot for uploading such as everyone seems to dislike, except for them who replied with an comment!

Do you have the first Hybrid Kids album "Hybrid Kids- a collection of classic mutants" ?
