1981年に唯一のLP[One Day I Was So Sad That The Corners Of My Mouth Met & Everybody Thought I Was Whistling]をリリースしたTNB - Richard RupenusによるプロジェクトであるBladderFlask。なんと当時2つのコンピレーション用に用意していたという未発表音源をRichardが発見、その2曲を纏め7インチ音源としてAnomalous Recordsが制作！！あらゆる要素が狂気的に混濁する度肝を抜かれる事間違いなしのカッコ良さ!！マスト。
Bladder Flask were an oddball English collective (rather than a group) who were active in the early-mid 1980s and included a teenaged Richard Rupenus (who later formed The New Blockaders.) In 1981 Bladder Flask issued their one and only LP, 'One Day I Was So Sad That The Corners Of My Mouth Met & Everybody Thought I Was Whistling' on their own Orgel Fesper Music label which was described as, Œ...A mind-boggling Fluxus, Dada, Improv, Sound Art lunacy as if Bladder Flask were possessed by some fevered desire to surpass the worst excesses of the lunatic fringe end of the United Dairies catalogue. A gibbering masterpiece.¹ The LP quickly came to the attention of Steven Stapleton of Nurse With Wound who became an avid fan and today cites 'One Day I Was So SadŠ' as his most favourite ever title. In fact, Bladder Flask just missed being included on the (in)famous ŒNWW list¹ by a cat¹s whisker (the LP was issued a few months after the list was compiled) and were invited to issue an LP on United Dairies in 1981 although (for various reasons) it failed to see the light of day.
'The One Day I Was So SadŠ' LP is soon to be reissued by Finders Keepers (who recently issued the 'Strain, Crack & Break' 2LP compilation including several artists from the NWW list.) While recently dusting off the One Day I Was So SadŠ master-tape Rupenus unearthed two previously unreleased Bladder Flask tracks which were originally intended for inclusion on two compilations which failed to materialize. The tracks in question: 'I Am As I Have Spoken' and 'Zzeut-Ztt-Ztt-Zzt (Pour Chapeaux, Manteaux Et Parapluis)' (from 1982 / 1986 respectively) are to be issued together on a 7² in an edition of 200.
Also due soon is a collection of Bladder Flask reworkings by Steven Stapleton (provisionally entitled 'Nurse With Wound Play Bladder Flask') to be issued on United Dairies.
