Princess Tinymeat - Herstory LP


Princess Tinymeat was formed by Haa-Lacka Bintii. The band only lasted for a couple of years.
Haa-Lacka Bintii once was a member of the Virgin Prunes, playing drums and keyboards. It seems he got this nickname because he lacked humour. Princess Tinymeat was also the backstage nickname of Hollywood actor Montgomery Clift.
Princess Tinymeat only did 3 releases. These appear on the 'Herstory' LP, together with 2 comp. tracks.
Tracks 3 & 7 appeared on the 'Sloblands' 12" (1985). Anyone remembers the 'infamous' sleeve ?
Tracks 4 & 8 appeared on the 'A Bun In The Oven' 7" (1985)
Tracks 2,6 & 9 appeared on the 'Angels In Pain' 12" (1986)
Tracks 1 & 5 appeared on the 'You Bet We've Got Something Against You' comp. LP on Cathexis Recordings.
Bintti still makes music under his real name Daniel Figgis. Visit his site here. No mention of Princess Tinymeat though...

Note: the vinyl crackling on tracks 1 & 5 is intentional.

I can't believe I can hear this again. I love this release. I thought I was going to hhave to invest in the ability to convert analog to digital to be able to hear it again.
Thank you, thank you, thank you and great blog.

Yeah, I remember the "infamous" sleeve (the penis shot on the cover), bought it and this album due to Virgin Prunes connection. I think I probably had one of the few copies in Texas!
