This is The Young Rochelles 2nd 7" on Greenway, and it's just as great as the 1st, if not better! Songs are very short put give a big punch. The whole complete set with x ray is pretty insane, They can do no wrong, I recently got to see them play some of these live and they are as tight as can be.
As for the cd, the complete new album, it is a contender for album of the year for me. Every single song on it kills, and carry's on the spirit of the Ramones, the first song is even called "I Never Saw The Ramones" ! From that song till the end I am completely blown away with each listen, right now I'm on my 1200'th I'd say! It's a perfect album. It's on #soundsradrecords not sure if the vinyl will be. But I'm not kissing their ass, they couldn't have made a better record. The cd is also a 4 way opening digipack, it's sick. So is the 7".
Yesterday on Radio Base Camp hosted by our GM @stevedico our newest WPKN intern Nick Rogan programmed the full two-hour show. He is taking some time off from his studies at Harvard where he also is part of the radio staff at WHRB. Nick curated a great set and if you missed it you can hear it for two weeks in the archives of WPKN. We're fortunate to have him here - he's helping programmers with the use of Spinitron and doing all sorts of office admin. Here's the link to his show: http://archives.wpkn.org/bookmarks/listen/194848
a lot has happened in the past week. Among them, my car needed repaired for the umpteenth time so we took it to our mechanic who is also an audiophile. We got on the topic of his huge record collection, and told him i started out my collection with Beatles albums. He pulls out one of his George Harrison albums, All Things Must Pass, one I didn't have but have been searching for the last 6 years I've been collecting as it's my all time favorite of Georges' solo career. And he gave it to me. It's been one of very few positives lately and it's kind of been in my mind ever since that all things must pass, even with the bad news I continued to receive all day yesterday and just this morning, no matter how bad of a situation you think you're in, all things must pass and everything will be okay again. It might take days weeks or years but everybody gets there eventually. And I will keep trying until I get there. •
The record player is fired up, what albums will you bring? Tag a friend who loves vinyl and tell them to bring a couple records to the Tap Room tonight for Bring Your Own Vinyl night from 6pm on. Happy hour food and drink deals all night. #vinylcollection#vinylrecords#cocktails
Happy Mondays - Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches (1990). I don't believe I own a record with a horrible singer that I like more than this one. In fact the hilarious performance of Shaun Ryder adds to the pleasure of jumping around on this record. I still play it today and did not hesitate to grab the record store day reissue from a couple of years ago. This one is, besides yellow, great fun. #happymondays#pillsthrillsandbellyaches#shaunryder#recordstoreday
