COVER ART OF THE WEEK: Terminal Mind were an underground rock band associated with the late 70s and early 80s punk scene in Austin. They had but one release while active, a 4-song EP that came out in 1979 on No Records. It featured the simple, straightforward design of bassist and vocalist Steve Marsh. The same artwork was used on the “Recordings” anthology, a collection of all their recorded output, live as well as studio. It appeared in 2018 on the Sonic Surgery label. Click on image to enlarge.

LAST WEEK’S DUSTY DIAMOND (a forgotten gem from the STD vaults): Gas Huffer were a garage rock band from Washington state and were active from 1991 until 2006. In that time, they released numerous albums and singles. They included Tom Price who was in the U-Men, Monkeywrench as well as other bands. “Hot Cakes” is an uptempo Seattle sounding garage romp that is not necessarily about one of my favorite breakfast foods. It appeared on the 1992 “Hot Cakes!” single on Sub Pop. Listen to it here:
