BLUE BABIES - FROM A WHISPER TO A SCREAM Tape

Blue Babies - From A Whisper To A Scream
Dublin, 1991, FOAD, Cassette

Ah the Blue Babies! This was the band that made me wanna start doing this blog/archive in the first place, after kindly getting their songs sent on to me at the end of last year they have been on constant repeat. The fact that this band didn’t record more than these six songs here is one of the biggest fucking travesties of irish punk rock. This was recorded in 91’ when I was still too busy listening to Alice In Chains and Soundgarden and growing my hair long to even have this type of stuff on my radar, my loss. This is fast, angry, punk rock, with wit and sarcasm, they sound like a whirlwind of fucking insanity. The more and more stories I hear of this band the more the legend grows and grows. If anyone has any of their gigs recorded live please let me know. This recording is fucking whopper too, clear and with plenty of heft. Thanks to Al for sending this on.
