On Friday night I was handed a compilation tape for Wonderpus Records – a label I’d never heard of nor can dig up much info online about. The tape has a myriad of familiar names – Spanish Candles, Ranch Ghost, Useless Eaters, New Pleasure, Cy Barkley, Natural Child, The Greater Good, Turbo Fruits and Evan P Donohue to name a few.
I have no idea where this came from or where you’d obtain your own – aside from the Turbo Fruits merch table or maybe from this guy who designed the logo?
What I do know is that there was a postponed launch party back in June and that they’ve also released music from Justin Stewart and Ben Spinks Supermelt. If anyone has some additional insight on these guys I’d love to hear it.
Here’s what I learned today. The official Wonderpus Facebook page is here. Their first release (intended to be their third) is the Last Summer tape compilation mentioned above; available at The Groove or Grimeys. In the future there will be full physical releases (read: vinyl) from Justin Stewart and Ben Spinks but these things take time and they’re still off on the horizon.
