Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Here's some make-your-day news: Baboon just sent out a Myspace bulletin alerting fans to the fact that it has digitized the cassette recordings of its first-ever release, 1992's ed Lobster. And, even better, the band's giving the raw, punk-influenced 8-track cassette-recorded album (on which Centro-matic's Will Johnson played drums) away as a free download.

Note: It's not wholly complete. The ed Lobster version of the final track, "Fan In My Car," is lost, so the guys replaced it in this download pakage with the version from the band's second cassette, Sausage.

Uh, either way: Score! --Pete Freedman

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
