When we first set this here place up, I figured people would be able to cross-post stuff from their own blogs on to here. Save me visiting dozens of blogs. I’m finally getting around to doing that.
Here’s all the mp3s of other bands that I have posted up on my own site over the past year or so. Hope you like these.
LOCAL HEROES SW9: Grainy English post punk / melodic rock circa 1981, a little like early Police , Pretenders, Soft Boys, etc.
THE SOUND: Morbid early Gothic Londoners also circa 1981, a lot like some Echo and the Bunnymen or early Cure.
- The Sound: ‘The Fire’ and ‘Silent Air’ (two songs, one file).
THE STICKMEN: Philidelphia post-punk weirdos with crazy vocals, kinda like the B52s on speed.
PATRIK FITZGERALD: The Bob Dylan of punk, late 70s acoustic guru. The file is about half his debut record, Grubbby Stories. Watch out for the vinyl crackles.
GEORGE THOROGOOD: No I’m not joking. These acoustic songs from his 1974 debut effort are worth a listen. I added bass on the second one, just for kicks.
- George Thorogood – Huckle Up Baby (by John Lee Hooker)
- George Thorogood / GSS – Miss Me When I’m Gone (by Eddie Jones)
I got some more stuff to put up over the next month. Got any old faves you want to share? Hook me up.
