Martha and the Muffins "Insect Love" ep

This was the first single by Martha and the Muffins. The recording was done at Integrated Sound Studios in Agincourt in June 1978. The band recorded four or five songs. Keith Elshaw of CFNY went back to that studio in January 1979 and remixed these two songs which would become a double A Side release. The band put the single out by themselves on Muffin Music Records and sold the single at shows. The other songs were never released.  "Suburban Dream" was the B-Side but wound up having more staying power in the end. The back of the single is a photo of the band's old practise space at 4 St. Patrick Street, which was the original stable for the Rex Hotel. There is some other great material about this single on Canuckistan Music about this single. The single doesn't make it into official texts about the band but there is good information about the band history and the other releases on the official M+M site.
