Like DEVO? You're gonna LOVE this!

This anthology collects FOOD & MONEY's entire discography into one release. This album includes their sought after first 7-inch "Economic Bullies" (1980). It also includes their only other proper release, the live cassette No Loafers (1982). It also features six unreleased bonus tracks. Springfield Illinoisʼ Food & Money formed in the waning years of the 1970s. They were a musical fish out of water among the honky-tonkinʼ bar-rocking cover bands of central Illinois circa 1979. Not content with the ubiquitous middle of the road FM radio rock of their peers, Food & Money played absurd, funky, socially conscious, sarcastic new wave and were pioneers of weird in the mostly conservative Midwest scene. Food & Money played Chicagoʼs early new wave scene with appearances at TUTS (along side the Corrosives and the Lubricants!). They headlined the first Vertabrats show in Champaign / Urbanaʼs burgeoning power pop scene. They also made appearances in St. Louis and played live on public access TV. 21 songs total, 6 previously unreleased. Includes full color insert featuring liner notes and band pictures.
