The Fingers - Melons On Melrose EP. Sheer Filth Records PFR-595903.

The last release from The Fingers (to date, there are ongoing rumours of a CD compilation) goes back to their earliest days when they had just changed their name from Chainsaw Blues. It's not their best by a long way, but does at least show they were beginning to pull it together (in as much as they ever pulled it together).  There is a great article on the East Los Angeles scene here.

  1. the back photo is of the chainsaw blues: their original vocalist tito lopez is second from left, between ralph and shane. i'm fairly certain these tracks were recorded on kerine's karaoke machine, same as the chainsaw blues demo, which itself is worth the price of admission for the tune "blue balls" alone -- six minutes, one chord.....by the by, that link to the east l.a. article is an unauthorized version. below is a link to an authorized, updated version:
