Toiling Midgets – Four Track Mind (A Retrospective Of Home Recordings, 1980-1983)

Legendary recordings by Toiling Midgets, first time on vinyl.
The Toiling Midgets spawned from congress between the Sleepers and Negative Trend, two of the Bay Area’s most avowedly confrontational hardcore bands. Congruous to Flipper (two of whose founders played in Negative Trend), the new quintet boiled its songs down to their most primary elements, reassembling them if the mood struck but often allowing guitar solos to writhe somewhere in the middle distance as a disconnected rhythm cut in and out.
