Reissued 2013, originally released 1980
Digitally remastered reissue of this album from the British indie Post Punk band. What's the Hubub Bub originally appeared in 1980/1981, and was so far ahead in it's approach to songwriting, performance, recording, and presentation that we're just now catching up. Issued at the height of the British post-punk renaissance, on cassette only, it presaged the DIY underground movement in this country by several years, and until now, has been more rumored than heard. Recorded mostly live to cassette, the album has an astonishing breadth, taking in and transmuting savage rock'n' roll, tender ballads, tape experiments, and in the case of 'The Shark F***s', bona fide anthems. Ziro Baby and his songs have held sway with hundreds of the underground cognoscenti for decades now, cassettes of Tronics albums being passed around like secret handshakes.
