Bottled Hungarian - I Called (Cassette and double 7" ep, '88)

Marty Schwarzbauer - Bass/Vocals
Juan Camacho - Guitar/Backing Vocals
Debbie Nesbitt - Vocals
Scott Adamo - Drums

Despite the longevity of the band and it's many, many personnel changes, I Called was the only actual release. The album first appeared on cassette in early 1988 and later as two separate 7" e.p.'s issued by Tombstone and Moxie in late '88 or early '89. During this period, Bottled Hungarian were Eugene's answer to X and they did the job well. Marty would later re-form A Few Chairs with Mimi Raiter who eventually changed their name to Skeleton Closet and released a cd which I still hope to obtain a copy of. Juan was in the Detonators, Debbie went on to play guitar and sing in the Exploding Cats and also became the singer in Runtmeyer after Denise Christie left the band. Anyone know what became of Scott? Enjoy the download, this one has stood the test of time! Marty has other recordings by different incarnations of the band but I haven't been able to wrangle a copy from him just yet, stay tuned.

  1. Scott Adamo went on to join latter-day Hitting Birth and then King Black Acid. He and Bryson Carter also had a band called Black Jack.
