Enigmas "Strangely Wild" 12"

The Enigmas were from Vancouver and had a 60's air to thier garage punk sound. The band featured Paul McKenzie on vocals and sax, Mike Davies on guitar and vocals, Brian Olinek on bass, and Randy Bowman on drums. They released this 12" back in 1985 on their own label Zulu Records which I think had something to do with Scratch Records. The lyric sheet has a little foot instruction on how to do the "Windshield Wiper", which was pretty cool. Unfortunately I don't think the dance caught on. The songs on here are:

1. Flying Dutchman
2. Windhield Wiper
3. Monsters in the Basement
4. A Bit Too Far
5. Strangely Wild
6. Rush Hour to Russia

NoMeansNo "You Kill Me" 12"

I think this might have been NoMeansNo's first release on Alternative Tentacles. It was a 5 song 12" and had thier version of Hendrix's "Manic Depression". NoMeansNo were a three piece now. The songs on here are:
1. Body Bag
2. Stop It
3. Some Bodies
4. Manic Depression
5. Paradise
