Paul and I recently bought a new record player, our first in quite some time. This has encouraged a swelling of nostalgia in us. We’ve been listening to all our old records, a lot of which are queer punk/ riot girl/ 90’s indie 7″s. Some are as amazing as remembered, others have fallen a bit flat over time. All of them are worthy of praise though because each was responsible in part for us developing us into the adults which we are today.
Sadly though, for each awesome record we have their are 5 more out of print ones we only remember hearing at teenage friends houses and on long lost mix tapes. Amazingly, most of these appear to be completely un-findable anywhere on the internet. This is potentially a great loss of creative intellectual value. This music must not be lost to time!
We here at Gaycondo have decided to take our part in digitizing and documenting these recordings. The plan is to post one 7″ every Saturday from here on out!
The first 7″ to be featured will be “The New Team Dresch V 6.0” by Team Dresch
Released in 1998 on Outpunk records, the two songs featured on this record would be two of the last original songs to be recorded by (arguably the most important queercore band of all time) Team Dresch. Recently however, the band has reformed and murmurs of a new album have been traveling feverishly through the queer music community. Hopefully we won’t have to wait long. In the meantime, enjoy these two (almost lost forever) Team Dresch tracks.
