Any Suggestions?

I need some new music.

Given your rock snob credentials, I'd love to hear some of your suggestions for some albums and bands you think I should give a spin (or 2, or 3 or 100) that you haven't seen me mention on this blog. Any decade, any genre is ok w/ me. Remember, what's old to you may be new to me.

Thanks guys. Looking forward to it! And for your efforts, here's a funny little video entitled "She's So Hot", by Flight Of The Conchords...

Saw your plea for new music and thought you might like to check out local singer/songwriter Brendon Alvord. His debut album is scheduled for release later this summer.

He's playing the Vintage with his band tomorrow night, Sat. May 31, 8-10 pm, for free!

P.S. Love your avatar. Harry Earles and the Unholy Three ROCK! Nothing beats Lon Chaney in drag for seriously disturbing images.

Sorry for the bad link on the previous comment about Brendon Alvord; somehow Blogspot insinuated itself into the html...

Here's another try:
Brendon's website: Brendon Alvord
myspace: Brendon Alvord's myspace.

Thanks, and happy listening!

Tripleshack Records

You're the first to recognize ol Harry Earles! Major points!
I've read about Brendon in the RS, I think, and if Jim Dyar gives him a thumbs up he must be okeedokee!
Thans for the tip on the free concert, come back often!

The Gaslight Anthem. Did I give them to you? I can't remember.

I hear Journey rocks!!

You, Sir Robin, are a tool-bit!
(I can say that. He's my younger, less intelligent and certainly less handsome brother.)
Give us a call, Rob. The girls would love to hear from ya!

OK, not all I suggest is necessarily "great," but I know how you love the kinda obscure and there's some historic significance that fills in some blanks for you...
"The Street Giveth and the Street Taketh Away" by Cat Mother & The All Night Newsboys (1968) Hey it was produced by Jimi Hendrix!

Anything from Long John Baldry...

Find and devour all the Lord Buckley you can get your ears on.

"Jammy Smears" or "Velvet Donkey" by Ivor Cutler

Any Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band or Viv Stanshall, Neil Innes or "Legs" Larry Smith solo stuff.

The Steve Gibbons Band

The Dwight Twilley Band

If you can find the original Elliott Murphy Columbia recordings, let me know...I miss them something terrible. Far as I know, never released on CD.Look for "Aquashow," and "Just A Story From America." Great stuff.

Thanks, Phil, I'll look into it!
