SEPTEMBER 1993

WE HERE AT DERIVATIVE DEAL IN NON-RECYCLABLES...VINYL AND CASSETTES. OUR ITEMS
ARE NOT BIODEGRADABLE, BUT THAT'S OK...BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO REASON  TO MELT
THEM DOWN AND IMPRESS YOUR FRIENDS WITH LITTLE ASHTRAYS YOU'VE MADE THEM FOR
CHRISTMAS FROM RECORDS IN A COLLECTION THAT HAVE BECOME OBSOLETE BECAUSE YOU
FOOLISHLY SOLD YOUR RECORD PLAYER...NOR WILL YOU FEEL (WE TRUST) COMPELLED TO
EJECT OUR RECORDS AND TAPES, THUS CONDEMNING THEM TO LANDFILL, IN AN ATTEMPT
TO CLEANSE YOURSELF OF A PARTICULARY EMBARRASSING PIECE OF MUSIC.  WE HOPE
THAT YOU DO NOT FEEL OBLIGED TO BURY OR PURGE YOURSELF OF THE FOLLOWING, USING
THE ABOVE TACTICS. 
THIS IS A PLACE WHERE THE DIGITALLY IMPAIRED ARE WELCOME. 

WE'RE LITTLE BUT WE'VE GOT BIG EARS
                                                           PATTI, KEVIN AND PAT 
                                                    FROM THE HOUSE OF
DERIVATIVE

STUFF WE HAVE

DUH000  ASEXUALS - 'WHEN LOVE GOES PLAID/BEAUTIFUL'      7"
               Actually a release on Germany's RPN label, we decided to assist
in the distribution, hence the catalogue number

DUHOO1  SHADOWY MEN ON A SHADOWY PLANET - 'TAKE OUTS'7"
                our official premier, so what if we begged, pleaded and harrassed them for it. Songs are 'the Jehrney', recorded
in Chicago by some famous producer guy, and 'song of the Lobster'. These are
derivative exclusives and they're going fast

DUH002  TRENCHMOUTH/BLISS - SPLIT                                        7"
                Chicago's Trenchmouth go side to side with Montreal's Bliss in
a welterweight jazz core bout. Difficult music for difficult people. This
should be ready by the end of October...you know how it is.

DUH003  BITE - 'BECAUSE GIRLS WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A FRIEND 
                    TO DANCE WITH...'                                       
CASSETTE
               six songs of twee with teeth, from four 'not of the boy
persuasion'...these are limited edition of 300 and we're almost down to what
we can count on our fingers


DUH004  BELLY BUTTON LINT - 'THE FIRST FOUR'          CASSETTE
               Pre-pest stuff....Kevin and Patti lost in the studio, alone and unwilling to come out. (intensely limited)

DUHOO6  JALE - 'BROTHER/EMMA'                                               7"
                 two new tracks, from Halifax's garage pop divas, catch this before they start releasing stuff for Subpoop. 

DUH007  PEST - 'PLAYS NUMBER 817 THE VISIBLE TROUT' 
                                                                              
            CASSETTE                           
                a debut, from Montreal's laziest band, they let the violinist
do all the work. 

DUH008  CHICKEN MILK - 'LIVE IN SPANE'                      CASSETTE
               of course it's not live silly. Six songs recorded at the Gas Station in Toronto. 

DUH009   SPOOL                                                               
CASSETTE
                It's not ready yet, but things have been mailed, and plans
have been made. You won't be sorry you waited for this...it raucous, funny,
and damn clever...you might even wish you were in the band.

OTHER NEWS: BITE JUST FINISHED A TOTALLY SUCCESSFUL MINI TOUR OF THE EAST COAST. IT PRETTY MUCH CLEANED US OUT OF CASSETTES,
WE EVEN HAD TO PRIORITY POST TO BOSTON SO THEY HAD SOMETHING. IN THE NEXT FEW
WEEKS PRODUCTION ON THEIR DEBUT SEVEN INCH WILL BE WELL UNDERWAY.
BLISS AND TRENCHMOUTH ARE TAKING LONGER THAN EXPECTED TO MANUFACTURE, BUT TEST
PRESSINGS FOR THE JALE SINGLE SHOULD BE OUT ANYDAY NOW. SPOOL, MY FAVOURITE
NEW BAND FROM LONDON ONTARIO (CAN I TELL THEM I NEVER HAD A FAVOURITE BAND
FROM LONDON BEFORE) WILL BE DOING A CASSETTE WITH US...SPOOL ROOL...YOU SHOULD
GET YOUR HANDS ON THIS WHEN IT'S READY. BESIDES HAVING A CASSETTE RELEASE
IMMINENT IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS, CHICKEN MILK HAVE RELEASED A SEVEN INCH ALL ON
THEIR OWN RECENTLY...LOOK FOR IT IN SMALLER RECORD STORES NEAR YOU. PEST HAVE
MADE SOME PERSONNEL CHANGES, THEY'RE DOWN TO PATTI AND KEVIN AND GENIEVE, A
GUY NAMED JOHN HAS JOINED ON SECOND GUITAR AND WELL, DRUMMERS SEEM TO BE AN
ENDANGERED SPECIES ROUND THESE PARTS.
ALSO, ERIC'S TRIP HAVE MADE CONTACT, AND NEGOTIATIONS ARE UNDERWAY FOR A SEVEN
INCH RELEASE IN THE TOTALLY NEAR FUTURE.
