DOWNLOAD: Info Nympho - Eggs

This record came as a recommendation from J Marinelli, who said of Info Nympho, "I'm not sure if you've ever heard Info Nympho, but they were one of my favorite Morgantown (via Dayton via Brooklyn) bands circa 1999-2000, kind of a weird GBV/Devo/Electric Eels/noise/prog/Captain Beefheart hybrid. A great lost Morgantown band." Correct. A great lost Morgantown band.


This was the first Info Nympho album. It was recorded in 1998 in the town of Scott's Run, West Virginia. The musicians were Andrew Hurst, Michael Walls, Daniel Poling, and Jay Kuntz plays lead guitar on the song Yellow Sun Soldier. Mike introduced himself to Dan at the laundry mat at the top of Eighth Street in Morgantown, West Virginia. Mike introduced Dan to Andy and the three of them spent the next year and a half recording an album out at Trish's trailer and playing three shows in Morgantown. Info Nympho played shows with Bead Arithmetic, The Freshmen Killday, Rob The Bank, Moon, and Who Killed Teacher. Eggs was a tape release on Olive Records. Only 50 hand dubbed copies were produced, the first eight copies were on cream colored paper and not white. It was recorded on 4-track out at the trailer, dumped to DAT by Mark Poole, and transfered to CD by someone at Squirrel Sound. The DAT was never broken up into songs.
I took it upon myself to break up the songs. Enjoy.
