The Welders-Our Own Oddities 1977-81 LP
2021-BDR Records/Bachelor Records
Welders were an all-female Punk Pop band from St. Louis, MO. Formed by
four young, teenage women in 1975; they started playing shows in 1976,
in one of the toughest climates to get booked for bands playing original
material. The Welders bonded over their love of The Monkees, The
Beatles and early glam rock. The comedy of the National Lampoon Radio

caught the attention of a local photographer and newspaper owner. He
financed a recording session in 1979, with plans to release a four song
EP. The newspaper folded before the release could happen, and all that
survived was a cassette copy of the recordings.
continued for a couple more years after recording the EP. They had brief
line up changes, and added an organ which shifted their sound more

pre-dating most of the neo-garage explosion of the '80s. By 1981, the
band had moved on to other interests. In 2010 BDR Records (a sub-label
of Rerun, designated for St. Louis area artists) issued that
previously unreleased EP. The EP was well received worldwide and has
been sold out for several years.
This new collection includes a
newly remastered and improved version of the 1979 EP tracks, along with
other studio, rehearsal and live recordings. The LP includes a large,
six panel insert filled with amazing photos of the band. The first
pressing has a limited number of 100 blue vinyl copies, which are only
available via direct mail order. The CD format comes in a fold-out
