BOGSHEDLET THEM EAT BOGSHED 12” single Vinyl Drip Records 1985 DRIP2 This rare collectors 12” single is in absolutely mint condition, both record and sleeve. Released on Vinyl Drip Records Bogshed sprung forth from Hebden Bridge in 1985. Bogshed comprised Phil Hartley (vocals), Mike Bryson (bass), Mark McQuaid (guitar) and Tristan King (drums). They soon grabbed the attention of John Robb, of legendary noisy Northerners The Membranes, and lo! the band’s first 12”EP entitled “Let Them Eat Bogshed” duly appeared on his own Vinyl Drip label. Championed by John Peel, they recorded 5 sessions for his radio show between 1985 and 1987, and gained regular airplay. The record set a blueprint for the future: repetitive, rickety, seemingly unplayable guitar riffs, a monster bass sound bludgeoning its way from one groove to the next, and on top, Phil Hartley’s deranged vocal, sometimes crooning, sometimes screaming, always utterly ludicrous but still strangely melodic and crammed with vivid imagery, buzz-words and slogans.
