Fantasy Gardens No Show

by Deviant & the Clones



Written (partially improvised) and recorded by Deviant, Mike, and Mr. Korg in the VL rehearsal space while waiting in vain for a VL band member who thought that practicing was a "waste of his talent". Done as a one-off ultra-short-run Deviant & the Clones cassette in the gap between Futura Bold (1986) and Still Cloning Around (1987).

"Fascist In The House" was obviously about the frustration and tension in the toxic VL environment. Pure Deviant angina.

"Chainsaw Running" was inspired by the band of the same name (Mike also played in the Fabulous Wallys who often opened for Chainsaw Running... the connection that also led Deviant and Mike to borrow Eric Lowe for the debut version of Six Inches). The main vocal is pure Mike, but Deviant's "Dateline Vancouver" break down would later be lifted for Mary's "Big Fishes".

"Creepy's Theme" was a "jam 'til the tape runs out" instrumental. Extra inside humor as "Creepy" was the childhood nickname of a friend's little sister.


released May 30, 1986
