Cat. No. : MENT028
Originally released only on cassette in 1983, "Dogs’ Ears Are Stupid" by Chicago trio Care of the Cow is a fascinating blend of psychedelic folk, minimal electronics and post–punk weirdness. Acid fuzz guitar, incredible vocal harmonies, drum machines, analogue synths...

One of Chicago’s best kept secrets, Care of the Cow’s history goes back to 1974. A trio formed by Victor Sanders, X Baczewska and Sher Doruff, they had a very unique and eclectic sound, experimental yet very melodic, mixing psychedelic folk–rock with art–rock and DIY / post–punk. Their influences were very diverse: Beatles, Fripp, Eno, Joni Mitchell, Carla Bley, Pauline Oliveros, Eric Dolphy...

Care of the Cow debuted in 1975 with a 10" followed by their first LP album in 1981. By 1983, the band was adding drum machines and synths to their sound, highlighted by Victor’s amazing guitar playing and X & Sher’s perfectly blended vocal harmonies, resulting in "Dogs’ Ears Are Stupid", the second Care of the Cow album, released only as a tiny cassette edition in 1983.

For us, this is a lost gem from the ’80s underground which really deserved a LP/CD reissue. Here it is, done in collaboration with Steve Krakow of Plastic Crimewave / Galactic Zoo fame.

"Experimental folk–rock music into minimal synth depths. What a gem!"
–Archaic Inventions

"An absolute unique psych/folk/new music/post–punk blend. Strongly recommended to all open–minded listeners"
–Tony Coulter (WFMU)
