TERMINAL MIND, formed in 1978, was one of the early first-wave punk acts in Austin,TX. Based far from the urban roots of a genre in it’s earliest stages, the band absorbed influences as disparate as Pere Ubu, Roxy Music, John Cale, and Wire. The life span was short, but their influence touched many of the next generation of Texas noise and hardcore acts as they shared bills with fellow proto-punks The Huns and Standing Waves at Raul’s, The Big Boys on U.T. campus, and even opened for Iggy Pop at the Armadillo World Headquarters. Founding members STEVE MARSH and the MURRY brothers, DOUG and GREG, started as a trio before adding synthesizer player JACK CROW. Steve Marsh moved to New York with his experimental noise band MIRACLE ROOM, while Doug Murry joined the SKUNKS and Greg Murry played in a later version of THE BIG BOYS. Jack Crow passed away in 1994. This collection of songs is a journey back to the anything goes first steps of American punk as it left the dirty streets of New York and Los Angeles and made its way into the heartland. Like the Austin of 1978, Recordings is a small outpost of musical individualism that planted seeds for the alternative music explosion so familiar to later generations. Includes the band's complete 4-song EP originally released in 1979, along with a complete performance from Live At Raul’s (1980 Austin,TX punk comp), and bonus unreleased studio and live performances never before available.
