Mudhead-Eleutheromania
These guys were from Kansas City, this is from their 1988 single The Jumbo Sound of Mudhead. I don’t really know much about them. I heard that their singer was wheelchair bound. Odd rocking woozy psych, the b-side “Charlie’s Golden Ticket” is great as well. I think Archer Prewitt from the Sea & Cake was in Mudhead, I know he did the cover art. The only other thing I know they did was a song on a 7″ box set of KC/Lawrence bands. Eleutheromania means a mania or frantic zeal for freedom. (To listen to song, click on 28 Eleutheromania below)

    Yes Archer was in Mudhead, Their singer Mottley had a progressive disease that eventually killed him about 5 years ago, back when this was released he was missing one leg and used to get around fine on crutches. id love to hear Charlies Golden Ticket if you have it, this record is impossible to find. they had a whole albums worth of stuff recorded but i guess it got lost which really sucks, i guess they had no idea how good they really were, they were ahead of their time.
