Dunno what all that track 13 stuff is about, as far as I am concerned this is "The Beautiful Ones" from "Free dope for cops and kids" E.P. by Stainless Steel Rat At Rat R, which I bought at the tender age of 18 on a day trip to Manchester from Barrow in Furness, the same day I got hold of L'eau Rouge, in Eastern Bloc records. I did later pick up Amer$ide (the album cover that's displayed there, I guess there has been a re-issue that has incorporated the later E.P.) in Cherry Red records in York. Then when I was skint in about 93/94 I sold them.
Frankly, in 1988 it (and the YG album) blew my mind. I heard that one point they played a twenty minute plus track called "when dreams cannibalize youth" at a gig in New York and blew the headliners, Sonic Youth, off stage. I used to have dreams that I had discovered a bootleg.
Anyway, nice to see it on youtube! After 20 years, Rat At Rat R I publicly salute you. You drove my mum mad for about a year before I finally buggered off to University.
(well... this and Eat Y'rself Fitter by the Fall)
aha! Track 12 is off the same record;
