Down at the Laundromat / Give It up or Turn It Loose
Luv N Haight
Ubiquity's founder Michael McFadin spent most of his youth on the burgeoning Southern California punk rock scene. Later when he became a DJ during the rare groove era there was one record from his past that was a quirky staple in his sets Down At The Laundry Mat by Black Randy and The Metro Squad. Whenever I play it someone asks me about it and I've never grown tired of it says Michael so we decided to rerelease it. Most commonly known for its inclusion on the single-sided, clear vinyl Yes LA compilation that was released on the Dangerhouse label and also included songs by The Germs, The Bags and others. The flip Give It Up Or Turn It Loose was on the only album by Black Randy and The Metro Squad Pass The Dust, I Think I'm Bowie and is a freaked out, garagey, ritalin-infused version of this JB classic!
