The Stench Band - Pray For The Fred (1971-1973) [incomplete]


The Stench Band was formed in Omaha, Nebraska (of all places!) in the early 1970s. It was a mix of different artists, with huge influence from Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band. While largely unnoticed at the time, it gained a modicum of popularity in the late 1990s, when someone bought a used album at a garage sale. Finally, someone noticed! The Stench Band produced four albums to date. The final one, Pray for the Fred, was a compendium of their "Greatest Hits", if an unrecognized band can have greatest hits. It is available on vinyl.

"The Stench music has been called "proto-punk" and "experimental psych" and has been compared to Captain Beefheart, Zappa, the Gizmos, and even Nurse With Wound!" (from the insert). HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

Your site is a constant source of joy! I look forward to all your posts. Unfortunately, I cannot listen your MEGA postings. Please link to zippyshare if at all possible.
Many thanks!!

Thank you for your kind words but I think at the moment it is impossible. I've checked the MEGA link and everything works fine. I have no idea what problem is with this link. Love. Savage.

Thank you for your kind reply! The problem is on my end as I am using an outdated OS as my computer is too old to support a new one. I can get all your Zippy links but unfortunately not the MEGA ones. I usually don't comment but I really wanted to hear The Stench Band. I have their other release and they are amazing! Anyway, sorry to trouble you. Keep up the great work!
Peace.

OK. I'll do it for you but I also have arequest to you. I'm also a big fan of this band and I'm looking for their recordings. Can we exchange our archives? Can you make a zip or rar and put it in for example zippyshare and give me a private link to savagesaints@gmail.com?

For what it's worth, I'm in the same situation as Anonymous. zippyshare is way better for me than mega.

But nevermind.. if you need "Not Human" or if my "fred" files are somehow more complete than yours (14 tracks, @320, 96MB) I'd be happy to help.

You have a really interesting blog, thank you for doing it :)
