ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Steve Westfield (vocals and guitar) formed the Pajama Slave Dancers in the early 1980s in Massachussetts. Influenced by the Dead Kennedys, the cassette All U Can Eat (Pajamarama, 1982) announced their zany punk-rock with the demented Defreeze Walt Disney, and Scoutmasters From Hell. By the time the cassette Problems With Sects (Pajamarama, 1983) came out, the line-up had stabilized in a quintet. The first vinyl album, Cheap is Real (Pajamarama, 1984), the first single, Train Wreck on Prom Night (Pajamarama, 1985), the second album, Pajama Beach Party (Pajamarama, 1985), spread the rumour about this hilarious band. Blood Sweat And Beers (Restless, 1986), Heavy Petting Zoo (Restless, 1987), and Full Metal Underpants (New Rose, 1989) marked the classic years. Then the band seemed to dissolve.
Westfield released the cassette Getting Fucked Up and Loving It (Pajamarama, 1990) under the moniker Captain Testosterone and the Gypsy Stretchmark Orchestra, a seven-piece band with trombone, trumpet, and sax, then the cassette What is Radio (Space Monkey, 1991), an experimental audio collage.

Then, unexpectedly, Steve Westfield debuted solo with the very lo-fi Mangled (Bib, 1994), with guests Lou Barlow (of Sebadoh), Chris Colbourn (of Buffalo Tom) and Joey Santiago.(of the Pixies).

In the meantime, Steve Westfield hired a nine-piece band (including standup bass, tuba, and trombone), the Slow Band, and released Reject Me... First (Glitterhouse, 1995).

Minutes later, he was already leading The Burnouts (a rock quartet featuring guitarist Rich Gilbert of Frank Black's Catholics) and releasing Brainwreck (Glitterhouse, 1996), that features the classics Electrocute me (Live), I Must Have Smoked a Little too Much Monkey Brain Last Night, and Brainwreck that here sound like hard-rock and glam-rock.
