The Embers- I walked all night

it's been a minute, so i decided to make a new video. I've been pretty broke and busy with holiday type stuff and no real funds to put towards new records. I can't wait to tell you guys about this next years SXSW Burger City line up. I'm super excited with how its coming together so far. I will clue ya'll in as soon as I feel that I wont be jinx'n myself. but anyway, here's a great little tune in the mean time.


As far as I can tell, not much is known about this group. I heard it in a tiny bar in london about 6 or 7 years ago the dj ( bear family) actually told me he had picked it up in Austin , Tx if my memory serves me correctly. It took me at least another two years to track it down on vinyl on Born Bad vol.7 witch i'm pretty sure is an Italian bootleg" Songs The Cramps Taught Us." I could be very wrong about that but.... it is not on any vinyl Cramps compilation that I am aware of. I have never come across the actual 7" either.None the less, I am very happy to own it. Great fuckin song!
it was recorded for Murray Nash's own Do-Ra-Me label, Nashville Tennessee, in the very early 60's I guess (Nash has been running his label from 1955 to the late 60s) and sadly stayed unreleased. Too bad...Just imagine a cute little 7" piece of wax with "I walked all night" on one side and "The Thump !" on the other.

SMALL FACES RONNIE LANE PASSING SHOW DOCUMENTARY


"My Mind's Eye" was originally intended to be an album track by the band but was released as a single without their knowledge or consent whilst touring in the north of England. Arden had been eager for the group to release a song before Christmas and released an unfinished, rough demo copy in his possession. The single was a hit, reaching number 4 on the UK singles chart, but in terms of relations between Arden and Small Faces, it was to signal the end of the band's relationship with both Arden and Decca

AND HERE IS PART 1/6 OF  THE PASSING SHOW : THE LIFE AND MUSIC OF RONNIE LANE.  Lots of great footage and interviews. You can watch the whole thing on youtube. 

THE GIZMOS- HOOSIER HYSTERIA / NEVERMIND THE SEX PISTOLS HERE'S THE GIZMOS

The Gizmos did a split 12" with Dow Jones & The Industrials on Gulcher Records in 1980 called Hoosier Hysteria. These are my favorite recordings along with the Nevermind The Sex Pistols Here's The Gizmos 7" EP 1978. Man, I love this stuff, super catchy and fun! Lots of cool rock n roll coming out of indiana these days as well, I highly recommend checking out Eric & The Happy Thoughts . Hozac records is supposed to be putting out full length from these guys real soon.I know I'm lookin forward...I wanna know more about these "Indiana Girls."

NICK LOWE- BORN A WOMAN off the BOWI ep contains the tracks, Born a woman, Shake that rat, Marie Provost and Endless sleep. I picked this up at Reckless Records in Chicago for a little more than a $1 and I couldn't have been happier with it. The ep is consequently called BOWI due to the fact that a few weeks prior to its release another artist released an album you may have heard of by the name of LOW. Anyhow, if you don't own a copy of Nick Lowe's Pure Pop For Now People. GO GET A COPY! one of my favorite records ever and you can find it for under $5 bucks just about anywhere!

Steve Jones & Paul Cook- Lonely Boy

this song is from the Sex Pistols "great rock n roll swindle" . Lonely Boy  and Silly Thingis sung by Steve Jones. . Both song are great. The first punk cassette I ever purchased sometime around 1987 or 1988 which was "The Swindle Continues." I was pretty excited to come across this a few weeks ago while cleaning out the folks garage. I bought Exploited "punks not dead" the same day. I think I listened to it once. Anyway "silly Thing" can be found on either album.



The Barreracudas- Diet coke

 The Barreracudas are a band based out of Atlanta. They were probably my favorite band over this last sxsw that i had the pleasure of meeting and seeing. I think this is a great song, solid power pop. it's the b-side to the Dog Food 7" released on Bachelor Records. The boys are currently working on a full length. I cant wait to get my hands on a copy. Hopefully by summers end. Warren and Adrian are currently playing and have been recording another album with Gentleman Jesse. Definitely looking forward to this as well. So, enjoy.

The Gizmos- Bible Belt Baby

The Gizmos were from Bloomington Indiana. This song is off a split 12 with Dow Jones & the industrials called Hoosier Hysteria released in 1980 on Gulcher Records. This is my favorite line up and or version of the band with Tim Carroll, Dale Lawrence, Shadow Myers and Billy Nightshade. Bible Belt Baby is about as awesome as it gets,  great lo-fi garage pop.

Cheek so much in love with you


i am pretty excited that i finally figured out how to do this. This is by an Australian power pop band by the name of Cheek. this is one of the very few Jagger/Richards compositions released only by other artists-originally recorded "So Much in Love", in August 1964 by The Mighty Avengers as a single. sorry about the poor quality. i promise i will get better


and remember next monday is th burger city schools out party!at the grand with John Wesley Coleman and Part Time

I can't sleep


I don't think its that i can't actually sleep. Its like I won't allow myself to. I feel as if this would we be okay if I were actually doing something constructive. I have always I feel been more creative in the wee hours of the morning. Sadly however, not in recent years. I feel I lack inspiration , direction and drive. It's 5:53 am, I will probably turn off the computer shortly before 7:00 and be fast asleep within seconds. I will wake up around 1:30, maybe do laundry or lay around the house till 4:30. then I will go cook and wash dishes till 11:30. consequently, lately I am terrified of getting pink eye from dirty dish water. Once I thought I had AIDS cause my chest and neck were really itchy for like 3 months with no visible rash and it turns out if you google AIDS symptoms... EVERY FUCKIN THING IS A SYMPTOM! . Then I decided it was because I was drinking dos xx at work so I switched to miller light and it was still going on  so i ran the gammet ( no idea on how to spell that, apparently neither does spell check.) for a bit and the day I decided to give coors light a shot....my friend Angye shows up at work and she tells me that she has sensitive skin cause shes gettin older and she has had to quit using fragranced detergents and soaps. I says to myself, "shit, I'm gettin older." . Anyway, I stuck with coors light and kicked out the fragrance except for my friend old spice. Which brings me to this. If I don't drink, I don't sleep. Not because I can't but I think because I won't. I can pretty much fall asleep on command but I really hate  telling myself to do stuff. So, I blame the internet and alcohol and Netflix (which the selection of watch instantly movies for the most part is pretty piss poor. I just like to tell myself it's not. I spend more time trying to decide which movie I have little or hardly any desire to see or that I've seen a million times already or whatever, theres a few good things. I really like "I like killing flies.) I used to be creative and inspired before this shit was around or consumed so much of my life much. What happened? Anyway, you should check out John Wesley Coleman III debut album Steal My Mind. its got alotta great fuckin songs on it one of em's called "I cant sleep."

Boobs the junkshop glam discotheque


this is another great compilation i came across awhile back. The opening track, "Turtle Dove" by The Rats is awesome. Not to be confused with Mick Ronsons Rats. Track 4 "Albatross" by Chunky might very well be my favorite along with The Boston Boppers, "Did you get what you wanted". Sensation is great too. Lots of cliches here but over all I have found it to be a pretty great collection solid songs that never quite got their day. Anyway, check it out for yourself.

Incredible Kidda Band - Too Much, Too Little, Too Late!

"every single song is fucking great"-Ben T

Remember during the good ol' days of late '70s and early '80s guitar-based new wave and power pop? Remember when the Boys had a new release, and how the raw energy almost ripped holes in your speakers? Prepare to relive those days, cuz here come two CDs of raw, unpretentious energy, dressed up in the catchiest hooks this side of the Boys. Recorded between 1977 and 1981, the Kiddas never got the break they deserved, due to circumstances beyond their control. They certainly had the talent and the songs, but it just didn't work out for them. With 29 tracks, there's something for every guitar pop fan. All the tracks are raw and primitive, but not sloppy. And each song, written by leader Alan Hammonds, has so much snap, crackle, and pop, you'll be stuffed silly by the time Disc Two ends. "Can I Take the Car Tonight" sounds like it could've been at least a regional hit way back then! "While the 1979-1981 material is in stereo, the earlier 1977 recordings are in mono, enhancing the experience for the fan, while irritating the audiophiles at the same time! "Fighting My Way Back" musically resembles a mix 'tween power pop favorites Bram Tchaikovsky and the Records "If Looks Could Kill," "Big Boys Don't Cry," and "Get Off the Telephone" are such nice, hooky little songs, that you have to wonder why no major label snapped them up. Though the sound quality is debatable in a few places, the songs speak for themselves. -AMG
tracklist:
Can I take the car tonight
Radio Caroline
Wait ‘til your father gets home
Don’t take me to the cleaners
The girl said no
You can’t do that
I’m gonna join the army
Bitch
Bullet in my heart
Sign on the dotted line
Major Tom
Asleep at the wheel
Camphill Go Go
So Excited
Saturday night fever
Everybody knows
You belong to me
Fighting my way back
Watch out theif
Get off the telephone
Gotta keep the noise turned down
If looks could kill
FAB
No nerve
If you think I’m square
Big boys don’t cry
I want you
I wanna be a hero
We’re gonna make it

Sharpies Attack VA

The Sharpies loved their music tough, loud and simple. Suzi Quatro, Sweet, Sensational Alex Harvey Band, T-Rex, Gary Glitter and Bowie (as long as it was songs like "Rebel Rebel" or "Jean Genie"). But the most popular overseas group was Slade. They were probably bigger in Australia than anywhere else. "Slade Alive!" was played at every party I went to where there were Sharpies. When Slade toured with Status Quo in early '73, every gig was like a mass meeting of the Sharpie clans. Weirdly, the tour also included Lindisfarne and Caravan on the bill. I am surprised those two bands made it through the tour alive.

Of the local acts, the most popular were Billy Thorpe & the Aztecs, AC/DC, Buster Brown (featuring Angry Anderson, later of Rose Tattoo, and Phil Rudd, later of AC/DC), Skyhooks, and Hush. But none were more popular than Lobby Loyde and the Coloured Balls. In their short lifespan ('72–'74), they were the undisputed number one Sharpie band.
- Bruce Milne
Both of the AC/DC songs on this comp feature original front man Dave Evans.The Young brothers decided that Evans was not a suitable frontman for the group, because they felt he was more of a glam rocker like Gary Glitter. On stage, Evans was occasionally replaced by the band's first manager, Dennis Laughlin, who was the original lead singer with Sherbet prior to Daryl Braithwaite joining the band. Evans did not get along with Laughlin, which also contributed to the band's ill feeling toward Evans
