Mouth Congress - Waiting For Henry LP
Captured Tracks Records
Toronto’s Mouth Congress — friends Paul Bellini and Scott Thompson of Kids In The Hall fame — wrote and recorded hundreds of songs between 1984 and 1988 without ever putting out a proper release. Alongside various cohorts and conspirators, the band drew on their experiences as gay men in the ‘80s to craft hilariously crude punk songs that run the gamut of strange characters and taboo subject matter. Their rag-tag approach to songwriting blended various styles from noisy punk to lo-fi new wave and DIY disco, all with a very gay bent. Out on December 10th, ‘Waiting For Henry‘ is a compilation of 29 of the best Mouth Congress tracks.
