Ben and Alastair, from Country Teasers, to release a song for song cover of Pink Floyd’s, The Wall!

I know that I’ve been AWOL around these parts, but I also know that many of you who visit this page are big Teasers fans, hence this brief return. It will be a vinyl only release via In The Red Records, appx summertime. http://bit.ly/2mciZJZ

Newly posted footage of The Feelies circa 1979/80

Didn’t get to see The Feelies live til the mid-80’s, at which point I saw them every time they played my town, and was never left anything other than blown away and exhausted. One of the greatest live bands ever.

Also, if you have not, do yourself a favor and check out Paul Tschinkel’s youtube archives. Mucho amazingness.

Who doesn’t wanna hear a pair of Brazilian kids cover The Misfits? Say hello to Os Desconhecidos

And The Ramones, Devo, Sisters of Mercy, Black Sabbath, The Cure, The Trashmen, Raul Seixas and more. Love these kids. Into the wardrobe changes, too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smash it! Sonny Bono goes punk… on The Love Boat

Why couldn’t we have gotten an album outta Deacon Dark?

If you haven’t been to Night Flight’s site (yes, they of 80’s New Wave Theater fame), I highly recommend it.

There’s a treasure trove of original DC Hardcore legends, Government Issue, live recordings on Bandcamp.

Also, singer, John Stabb has been battling cancer, and has a Go Fund Me page for those able to help with hospitalization costs https://www.gofundme.com/boycottcancer . I’m assuming the Bandcamp DL money will also, at least partially, help to this end, as well. Best wishes to Stabb.

Songs of The Day: Trio – Hearts Are Trump, and Sunday You Need Love

Trio really nail the Sunday Valentine’s vibe with this one-two punch. One of my favorite bands to arise from the NDW.

 

 

and a bonus, original German language version Herz Ist Trumpf

Ektro Records reissue 1982 single from Mr. Epp & The Calculations, featuring a pre-Mudhoney Mark Arm

Mudhoney’s Steve Turner was also in the band, though after the single, I believe.

Song of The Day: Eric Hysteric – (I Want To Be A) Kid Forever

R.I.P. to Eric Hysteric, of Vomit Visions, Der Durstige Mann, and a solo career which produced this anthemic ode to eternal youth. The 2016 death toll continues unabated.
