Mean Mister Mustard-Polythene Pam-She Came in Through the Bathroom Window and You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away – covers by Catastrophic Audio

The last of the circa 1995 messy unauthorized covers, by Catastrophic Audio, of Beatles tunes.

Particularly bodacious, messy, and best listened to aggravatingly loud…

#11. Mean Mister Mustard – Polythene Pam – She Came In Through The Bathroom Window.

And lastly (always better than last)…

#12. You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away.

Vocals by me. Instrumentation and engineering by Marty. Co-produced by Marty and me.

The previous Unauthorized Messy Covers are under the “The Unauthorized Cover” category.

The Night Before – another Catastrophic Audio cover

Wasn’t going to post this one but Marty convinced me to. I like the chorus but when I hear what else I did to it, especially at the end there, I feel like our ever reincarnating cockroach, Fred, scuttling as the light hits. Except for last night, finally caught in the bathroom, on the rug before the sink. “Mom, it’s Fred! I don’t think he’s feeling very good! He’s not moving!” He wasn’t moving but was still quite alive, too easy to kill, and left a mess on the rug. Anyway, out of my mouth belched certain sounds on this tune that I would have preferred not be preserved but here they are. I don’t know why I didn’t slash them out of the mix way back when. At the time I must have been kind of proud of those urps.

#10. The Night Before.

Vocals by me. Instrumentation and engineering by Marty. Co-produced by Marty and me.

#9. Things We Said Today.

The previous Unauthorized Messy Covers are under the “The Unauthorized Cover” category. I’ve been saying they’re from 1997 but that was just careless of me. They’re circa 1995 instead.

I will next post Mean Mister. Mustard-Polythene Pam-She Came in Through the Bathroom Window and You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away. Which will be the last from this batch, I think, though I’ve two more.

Have another set of recordings from earlier, circa 1993, that we’ll perhaps transfer next week.
