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1984, thanks in no part to the wild and reckless music put out by indie labels like TL, and these comps serve as historical documents to what Boston sounded like to discerning ears 30 years back.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!

Throbbing Lobster1984 might have been associated with Government clampdown, but in the indie-rock world it was the best kind of anarchy, especially in Boston, MA.  Great bands formed by the minute, and often disappeared a few minutes later.  Luckily, Throbbing Lobster Records had the foresight to document the explosive scene of the day with some great compilations, of which Nobody Gets On The Guest-List was just the first.  Share in a Baked Beantown Massacre with me, fellow music geeks!
