Kid Dynamo

I recently went to Los Angeles and spent quite a bit of time digging through the bins at Amoeba. It had been a while since I had done such a thing, so I didn't feel too bad about it. I came across the first Kid Dynamo record, and was excited because I had been thinking about putting their side of the split with Trackstar up here at some point. I was surprised that I didn't own it already because I remember seeing it so many times at record stores in the past. Better late than never, I suppose.

I was excited to go to Amoeba as that was when I was in the planning stages of this blog and I wanted to get some new items to share with the world. Oddly I spent a bunch of money there but now that I look through the records there aren't too many that I feel like I need to share with the world right away.

I never saw Kid Dynamo but I think I used to hang out with people who were in the band, if that means anything to you. It was a number of years ago and my memory isn't what it used to be.

Ladies and gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, 3 sides of Kid Dynamo.

Super Suicide. (Kirbdog)
1. Carpetmower
2. Kryptonite
3. Bubbledumb

Kid Dynamo/Trackstar (Chococolate River (Deconstructions))
1. Six-Speed

Another! I went to a crazy party in some caves where a rich hippie lived in the side of a mountain with them and I tried to seduce the singer. They were good live. Really good. And this another 7" that I no longer have.

I was buddies with all the guys in this band, they are amazing and it only got better. In fact the band im in now is doing a cover of kryptonite. By any chance do you have the lyrics. I converted all their stuff to CD a while ago. Maybe I could trade lyrics for some of their other songs.

I saw Kid Dynamo play at Gilman in Berkeley and again at the Bear's Lair on the UC Berkeley campus. The latter show was with Archers of Loaf, Nectarine, and a few other amazing bands. I got a demo tape from the Kid Dynamo guys and I bought the two 7" records you posted photos of on your blog. They were an amazing band both live and on record. Thanks for posting these files.

B.J. I was wondering if you have ever come across any 7" singles by the band Rocketship. I know they put a couple 7" singles out on the Bus Stop label. One was called "Hey Hey Girl." Very good indie pop stuff from the early-mid 90s.
