DOW JONES AND THE INDUSTRIALS....Lame current ska band with the same name notwithstanding, I'm searching for information that any readers can provide me on early 80s Indiana punks DOW JONES AND THE INDUSTRIALS. Not so much their bio, which one can find here, but a yay or nay on their recorded output. They are batting a clean 1.000 based on the two tracks I've heard and taken to my bosom: "Can't Stand The Midwest" from their only 7"EP, and the bizarre robotpunk of "Ladies With Appliances" -- one of the 2-3 top highlights of Chuck Warner's HOMEWORK series so far. What about their side of "Hoosier Hysteria"? Is it worth pathologically tracking down?
