Another record swap meet came and went on Saturday, which can only mean I spent far too much money adding to a vinyl collection whose weight I will curse if I ever have to move it.
Nevertheless, I’d call Saturday’s haul a success. Included in the bunch (list below) was a 7-inch by former Phoenix band Trunk Federation, whom I’ve written about before here and here. If I were you, I’d do my best to track down Trunk Federation’s 1998 record The Curse of Miss Kitty.
Anyway, this 7-inch (for low price of $3!) is called Winnie, and credits show it was recorded in the fall of 1994. Holy moses: That was 14 years ago. Doesn’t matter: Trunk Federation’s unorthodox pop probably would be better appreciated in these times than in the early ’90s.
Here’s the tracks converted from the vinyl:
- Side A:
Trunk Federation | Beanie’s Soft Toy Factory
- Side B:
Trunk Federation | Jello
Also purchased at the record swap meet (all 45s … Side A / Side B):
Salt-N-Pepa: Push It (remix) â€“ same both sides; label says ‘Side A’ on both sides.
Fred Wesley and the JB’s: Doing it to Death / Everybody Got Soul
Harry Nilsson: Coconut / Down
The Turtles: You Showed Me / Buzz Saw (picture sleeve … Buzz Saw sampled awesomely/famously here)
Cat Stevens: Morning Has Broken / I Want to Live in a Wigwam
Ike and Tina Turner: Please, Please, Please Pt. 1 / Pt. 2
a-ha: Take On Me / Love is Reason (picture sleeve! with story board pages like the video!)
One thought on “Trunk Federation: Winnie 7-inch”
Long live Trunk Federation. These guys are (were) so underappreciated. Their sound is like no other. We can only hope that these very talented chums reband to produce more albums and find a bigger audience. They have a unique voice that should be heard and applauded. Please come back to us!!!!
