STEPHEN ASHMAN / ZASU PITTS MEMORIAL ORCHESTRA-COOLER THAN DEATH, LP, 1984, USA


Highly infectious idiosyncrasy of a very distinctly mid 80's vintage, with L.A. resident Ashman and his crack ensemble (which bizarrely includes drummer Gina Schock of The Go-Go's, moonlighting here at the peak of her pop fame on about half of this) engaging in the sorta boisterously tuneful horn charting bippity boop more associated with Downtown NY movers of he era like The Ordinaires and Don King and the giddy R.I.O. Big Band sounds of France's Six Cylindres En V, but defaulting at other times to a sorta primitive warped pop tack akin to Louisville KY's Stutter.
