A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
The Cry -- "Modern Cinderella"
I've been listening to the Birth of Power Pop series from the wonderful Burn & Shine Blog. Sadly v.2 is not available
Liquor Giants, self titled. It's Ward Dotson from The Gun Club who created perhaps my all-time favorite rocking pop record. Every song is an utter delight.
I just ripped that gem to itunes yesterday...their excellent cover of "Hold Tight" reminded me I need to pick up a Dave Dee, Dozy, etc etc "Best Of".
Great album from a great band! Always wondered what happened to them. Came across an interview with Ward from a little over a year ago:
Excellent -- I'll check that out. yeah, he kinda dropped out of things. Hope he returns soon with something new....
Don't forget Ward previous band...The Pontiac Brothers. Made 3(that I can recall) pretty darn cool late-era Replacements style albums.
Fiesta En La Biblioteca is a Top 10 album for me. Nothing on You Tube but trust me on it's greatness!
Not sure how I missed these guys. Great tune.
I picked up Connections - Private Airplane a couple days ago and have been wearing it out. They are a super group of sorts, featuring members of 84 Nash and Times New Viking. Power Pob in a GBV (Alien Lanes era) kinda way:
