"The Geeks were a collection of Mendocino/San Francisco freaks that bridge the gaps between psych, free jazz and art punk from 1965 to 1981. They released 2 records when they were around, both pretty damn rare. We stumbled on them, tracked them down, and got a 7⿝s worth of archival stuff, which we made into SS005 in 2004. After that came out head Geek Radley H. sent us another collection of unreleased stuff and after a year or two of shock, we wiped the glaze from our eyes and got this pup together. These cuts were recorded in 1979 & 1980 and both have a seemingly subdued intensity to them. Too Fat Pig, sung by 15 year old Lydia Kindheart, sounds like the Inflatable Boy Clams done by some revolutionary free jazz ensemble. For many years the Geeks lived in a house across the way from San Quentin State Prison and would watch relatives line up to visit their imprisoned family members, hence Visiting Day at San Quentin, one of the angriest, creepiest, most intense songs Ive ever heard. We are really proud to present another Geeks record and will be happy when we do another. 450 pressed." - S-S.
