JUNGLE NAUSEA-S/T, 12" EP, 1982, USA






This legendary EP by Portland Oregon's jittery and addled post-punk unit Jungle Nausea has been a top dollar collectable for as long as I can remember, probably having something to do with their Smegma associations via their appearance on the seminal Flies Like Holidays compilation LP (forthcoming) that Smegma released on their Pigface label. The collector hype on this one proves well deserved though, with skeletal Gang Of Four-ish angularities beautifully mated to what sounds like the more art pop moments of art damage merchants like The Polkaholics and Henry Kaiser's post punk-period outfit Name.

Regarding: JUNGLE NAUSEA

Hello....

Ran across this post and am delighted.
I remember cutting JN album
while engineer and op manager
for Virco Recording. After Virco closed and Put many masters into storage, The original masters
exist yet today some 28 years later.
If the Producer is interested they can be uncovered/unearthed
at some point.

Maybe a remastering????

Best always, david

I still love this record. I bought it new on a whim and was delighted. I have sold off most of my records but this remains in the house as a favorite.

So this person "David" posts that the masters for Jungle Nausea are available. How does one contact "David" ?
