The Super-Big Urgh! post.

I got an email from someone asking about Urgh! and I thought that in an effort to make things a bit more streamlined and easy to navigate, Id make this post which includes every single song from the Urgh! soundtrack as well as some bonus ones. I’m not the most organized person in the world, and it shows in the haphazard nature in which these tracks were originally put up. I hope this makes things a little easier for everyone. And if anyone is still looking for the long-deleted Urgh! Yahoo! Group (wow that was a lot of exclamation points) they restarted it here.

    Thx for taking the time and effort to post these, particularly considering that it’s out of print, and that you ripped from VHS on some of the tracks. Means a lot to me: that movie (when shown on USA Network) did a lot to show me how the more creative side of the world lived and performed… a big influence on me, culturally…

    I watched that late nite on USA “up all night”… another big influence was the Clash movie called “Rude Boy” (recently released on dvd, but no cd soundtrack, alas)
    Thank you.
