Bobb and the Kidds "Take Me Home Vienna" EP

(Mighty Mouth) This reissue of some rare 1981 tracks by Bobb Trimble, a strangely sensitive sounding folkie/singer-songwriter, whose odd voice and artistic ambitions get his ultra-rare records classified as psyche, earning him a cult status that resulted in the eventual re-release of his private press materials. What's most intriguing about Trimble may be that for a while he assembled an all-little boy backing band, and while they were not incompetent musicians, their imperfection adds to the vulnerability of Trimble's work (think they are backing him on the A-side here, which is the weirdly wonderful title track). Plus, the photos on the sleeve of bob and his Bad News Bears backing band are AWESOME!
