Let's Breed Three weeks ago GE featured the first in the series of compilation LPs released by Boston’s own Throbbing Lobster Records, and this week we get the second!  We survived 1984, thanks in no part to the wild and reckless music put out by indie labels like TL, and these comps serve as historical documents to what Boston sounded like to discerning ears 30 years back.  Hear the real sounds of Tea Party Revolution, fellow music geeks!

Wicked GoodBack in the 1980s, Boston was a locus for great indie-rock (before it was even widely known as indie-rock).  Bands like MISSION OF BURMA blasted out a raw but intelligent sound across the nation.  Modern Method Records put out several fine compilations documenting the Boston sound of the time, and the first Wicked Good Time comp will be featured on this GE episode, with the likes of LA PESTE, BOYS LIFE, and YOUNG SNAKES (before they became ‘TIL TUESDAY) strutting their stuff.  More sounds from 30+ years ago, fellow music geeks!
