Wampeters

Wampeters, named for a term in Kurt Vonnegut’s novel Cat’s Cradle, released seven albums on the Wampus label: Screen Test (1987), Folk Medicine (1989), Pagan’s Nest (1990), Bloodline (1993), Look What’s Left (1994), Hey Judas (1997), and Murder Your Darlings (1999). They also recorded Jonathan Richman’s “Twilight in Boston” for the Wampus tribute CD, If I Were a Richman (2001).

A final album was recorded but not released.

Mark Doyon now records as Arms of Kismet (and sometimes as Waterslide). His most recent record is the Flicker EP. The most recent Arms of Kismet album is called Ballast and Bromides and features the Wampeters collaboration, “Be There.” Scott Goodrick records as Peroxide Vampire. Eamon Loftus produces and engineers music at his own facility, Brick House Recording.

The newly remastered Look What’s Left (25th Anniversary) was released on December 6, 2019.
