V/A The Lives Of Lhasa LP

A compilation of bands that played at the Lhasa Club in Hollywood, California. All tracks recorded live in the club.
A mix of art rock, indie rock and more experimental stuff.
Fibonaccis is art rock. First 12" released on Index Records (Wall Of Voodoo, The Thought,...).
Pell Mell is an instrumental indie rock band that released a few albums on SST.
Necropolis Of Love is a great, goth-sounding band that released one 7" and two 12"s. The 'Hope' 12" can be found here. The 'Talk' 7" here. Still need to hear the 'In Search Of...' 12".
Food And Shelter released a great but extremely rare album 'Square Dance' on Resistance Records (17 Pygmies).
Michael Peppe released a few tapes with his music and monologues.
Henry Rollins offers a spoken word piece here.
Don't know anything about the other acts.

Fibonaccis were a lot of fun. They have a compilation CD that is easy to track down.

As to Necropolis of Love, I have their recorded works compiled, and also this live gig:

Hi there! I was wondering if you would consider posting an article of mine. It's about an up and coming indie jazz-electropop band about to release their debut album this year. They are currently working with D.Bascombe, the producer/ mixer who has collaborated with Kylie Minogue, Natalie Imbruglia, Verve, Suede, etc.

The band plays jazz music but their songs are also classified under electronica. It's interesting how both jazz and electropop were merged into one by this band!

Please contact me at doc_alma_jones AT yahoo DOT com. Tell me if you're interested in posting my article so that I can send it to you. Thanks for your time!

Thanks for posting this thing, but the download link doesn't seem to work any more. Is there any chance you could re-upload it (or at least the Food And Shelter track, since that's the one I'm really looking for)? That would be very nice.
