The Fat Tulips - Demo Tape (re-post)


Mr Vincent will be quite happy to see this post finally happen. He's being banging on about it for weeks and rightly so because I hadn't heard these recordings for some years and hearing them again remindes me what I first saw in the band. I think I sent away for this tape, probably in 1990 after it was advertised on an insert in one of their 7" singles. I always liked the raw vunerable sound the Fat Tulips seemed so good at creating. In fact I think I'll go and dig out their one and only album "Starfish" right now.
The sound quality is a bit dodgy on the first five tracks but then it improves somewhat. It is only a demo after all.

    Thank you so much!
    This was such a great band.
    "Deadhead baby" is one of my favorite songs ever, and they had a bunch of tunes just as good.
    Thanks again for sharing this!
    You made my day!

  5. Oh shut up. You've just spoilt my night. Now I'll have to go and sit in a vat of boiling fat as penance.

  6. Also, if the size of your "gut" (particularly your lower abdominal region) seems to drastically change in size throughout the day then a big part of your problem may be from bloating as well.

  7. For others, belching is a response to any type of abdominal discomfort and not just to discomfort due to increased gas. Everyone knows that when they have mild abdominal discomfort, belching often relieves the problem.
