DIY with a guitar-genius/nonsense poet only begins to explain DRY RIB and the projects that followed, but they were one of a tiny handful of DIY/post-punk-era groups who’d probably have sounded the same whether punk had happened or not. And things only got cooler, odder, and more idiosyncratic as ROB VASEY’s audio insurgency progressed. Ed Ball of O Level (and later the Times and Teenage Film Stars) saw Dry Rib first in late 1978 and promptly signed them to his new Clockwork label. He writes, “Dry Rib were a late '70s three piece group of some indefinable power—not Powerful in the obvious sense, as in everyone slugging out the same riff... More the power of musical and lyrical imagination... Rob Vasey's guitar style of blurred chord stylings coupled with continuous tremolo arm pre-empted My Bloody Valentine (or anyone else) by the best part of a decade.” Twenty songs packaged with photos, lyrics and extended notes.
