Stool Sample Records
Stool Sample Records has released the demo sessions for the Mentors' albums Up the Dose and To the Max. These sessions are called El Duce-1985. These rare and unheard recordings featuring twelve songs all in their original form, including the classics: "White Trash Woman", "Up the Dose", and "Midnight Mistress". The recordings were tracked in the Redondo Beach apartment of Mentors bassist Dr. Heathen Scum (Steve Broy). The lyrical genius of El Duce is on full display during these recordings. "This is El Duce in full, uncensored flight," says Broy. With the likes of the late, great Frank Zappa, the Mentors are largely responsible for the "Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics" label we've all become so accustomed. With such classic rockers as "Herpes 2," "Free Fix," and "Clap Queen", who can blame Tipper Gore for her outrage? If you are not Tipper - you're going to love it! First pressing limited to 500 copies on colored vinyl.
