Remember The Ghoulies? The great synth-punk group from Perth of Flat Earth fame? Well Alec from that band has just released a demo tape under the name Pensioner.

There’s a Ramones cover that sounds almost exactly like Coneheads, and “Slip Slop Slap” is a powerpop gem hidden under tape hiss and warbly vocals.
