For those that missed my last post about Wish List, I caught these guys at a gig near me and they definitely impressed. For those of you that wanna give this Pennsylvania-based band a try, here is their latest EP. You can pay whatever you want for the EP in flac format, or pay $5 (+ s/h) for the 7" on either black or blue vinyl.
Everything you need to know is on their Bandcamp page...so get over there and give 'em a shot!

This is 1000x more powerful to me than Jello Biafra's take of Head On, where he emotes a lot of forced aggression. I imagine the blasphemy of Lisa and James doing this in early 1960s America, with a black woman howling "I gotta right to sing anytime I want!" over a white man's guitar licks. That woulda been something fer sure.

Last week we lost Steve Strange, so sorry this entry comes a little late. I remember Fade To Grey as one of those MTV videos that captivated me as a kid. Remember those days when you would camp out in front of MTV for hours and see all those awesome videos with the whites turned all the way up?!

The original recordings are on two separate reels and are in the collection of a private collector in Germany. A Bolan CD-R entitled 'Collaborations' containing these tracks was released about 20 years ago. The original reels were used for this disc.
The only other musician on these recordings is Gloria Jones on keyboards and backing vocals.
Tracks 1-5 Standing Next To You
Tracks 6-8 Madman

A new (second) record shop sprung up near me! Mobius Records opened up in Fairfax City, VA, in August and I dropped in today for the first time. Here's what I grabbed, for a grand total of $3.50. (Special Thanks to Carol Radcliffe for getting rid of her Iron Butterfly LP!)
|The Cars - Heartbeat City 80¢|
|Iron Butterfly - Heavy $2.50|
|Nazareth - Hair Of The Dog FREE!|

Even though the Stooges splintered after the release of 1973's Raw Power, frontman Iggy Pop and guitarist James Williamson continued to collaborate on new music, but beyond a smattering of demos and bootlegs, the material remained mostly ephemeral in Stooges lore. Last year, Williamson decided to revisit these songs with a cast of guest musicians, including Jello Biafra, Ariel Pink, Mark Lanegan, and Alison Mosshart of the Kills and the Dead Weather.
On Friday, January 16, Williamson is staging a one-off show in Los Angeles with many of the album's guests, plus an opening set from Dead Boys guitarist Cheetah Chrome. L.A. residents can get in on that action here, while the rest of us can check out this documentary about the origins and recording of Re-Licked. This footage was part of the deluxe edition of the album, and we're bringing you the online premiere. - from Allmusic.com
