Shit-Fi Essentials

Though this list is incomplete and always subject to change, here are some records that any aficionado of truly sublime bad music should know well. But don’t read too much into the list. Some records are clearly on the cusp and are included or excluded based solely on the level of “Je ne sais quoi” I perceive in them. Primitive recording, reckless abandon, lack of traditional chops, earliness/lateness for the trend, crapulence, geographic/political/lyrical marginality, and general WTF-ness are all considered.
