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 !!!
