Rube Ruben: Shmendrick

A rare and gloriously skeevy 7” on the Sympathy for the Record Industry label from 1991, featuring the musical stylings of Tim Hensley and the vocal/comedy prowess of Rube Ruben, aka Charles Schneider. Further background on this Dan Clowes-illustrated gem can be read at Mrowster's excellent Pig State Recon blog.

DISCLAIMER: To the best of my knowledge, this work is out of print and not available for purchase in any format. If you are the artist and are planning a reissue, please let me know and I’ll remove it from the blog. Also please get in touch if you’ve lost your art &/or sound masters and would like to talk with me about my restoration work.


  1. The hits just keep on coming... You're on such a cool roll, so fun! Many thanks.
    A small FYI for this Rube Ruben post; I found the mp3s & pdf just fine via the "parent directory", but your audio & artwork link seems to be unhappy. Not 'hot' - - at least on my browser...
    Cheers to you!
