13th Floor Elevators-Street Song

This is from Bull of the Woods, the Elevators 3rd studio album. This record is kind of a mess, some of it works in spite of itself. Here’s a gem from it.

Action Swingers-Bum My Trip

The Action Swingers were a criminally overlooked outfit who combined the best aspects of garage punk (with the emphasis on punk) with the bludgeoning repetitive nihilism of noisier outfits like the Brain Bombs. Ned Hayden and ever his changing lineup of co-conspirators made some great music that seems like a blueprint for the kind of stuff that labels like Goner Records are releasing today.  Their 1994 album Quit While You’re Ahead has just been re-issued by In the Red, it collects a couple of early singles and some unreleased stuff.

Yet Still More Record Inserts Again

Some more inserts found in trashed record sleeves. Note that while most everyone asks for check or money order for payment, The Outlaws ask for cash. [click on image to enlarge]

Billy Davis & The Legends-Spunky Onions

I don’t know much about Billy Davis or this song,I think it’s from 1967. I found it on the compilation Las Vegas Grind, Vol.6 (Crypt Records, 2000). This song makes me want to dance, which is troubling since I look like a shaved bear being attacked by bees when I dance.

Thin Lizzy 1979

I was a dishwasher and a cook at a Sheraton Inn when I was in high school (Raritan High, Hazlet). Thin Lizzy stayed there one night. I think it was ’79. In the band at the time was Scott Gorham, Gary Moore, Phil Lynott, Snowy White (or as he signed it Snow White). Snowy White wrote “chop one out” which I think is a drug reference. Gary Moore wrote “to the best dishwasher in Hazlet”,  I didn’t tell him I also cooked his meal. [click on image to enlarge]
