eBay pick of the day: King Bee 7"

King Bee "Hot Pistol" 7"

From the Dead Moon site:

At some point, Toody's younger brother Pat started working at Captain Whizeagle's. "We sat him down and gave him a drum kit", says Fred, and that fact led to the formation of a trio called King Bee, formed in 1976 with Mark Sten (a.k.a. Mark Stanley) as a bassplayer, and Fred doing vocals and this time picking up the guitar, too. Their only release, a 7" with three songs, almost makes Dead Moon sound hi-fi: the recordings were made in a back room with a tape recorder that had just been in a fire, "and the tape was stretched and melting. It hums so loud that the buzz is louder than the music!"
