Getting ready for Christmas, here is a tune you could fill in your own area code and hum this catchy tune in your head all next week..Ha Ha! I got at the store in CA in 2003 the year I worked there for a short term position but just in time to see my favorite bands: Dickies, Angry Samoans, hang out with Youth Brigade and I kind of miss that so now I am friends with all the artists on facebook. Cheers!
O.K. so I finally found this request as someone got me thinking it was a VA (Various Artist) compilation with this album title. Such an excellent band and here you can finally hear them live and yes, still an excellent band that used to tour with the Rhythm Pigs in a similar punk vein. I will have next week as vacation so I cannot come into the office to post as I am offline at home so I would like to thank everybody for a great and special year at the blog and making helpful comments and posting helpful links, as Mark Underground used to say, you are what makes this blog special...have a fun and safe new years and I'll be back at it next year until only the keepers are left...that is if I stop buying..NOT!!!! http://www59.zippyshare.com/v/OiiUOkSW/file.html
This is one I knew I had to get eventually and so quickly snatched it up at the big dollar sale last weekend. Well, it turns out the song 'Oh Well' is very familiar from AOR radio back in grade school.
Now this was a banner dollar sale find the other day! However in rough shape but yeah, this is the stuff people were listening to when Star Wars came out, trying for that space music genre.
SEARCH ABOVE AS "TOTO COELO" FOR MORE and ADD ON: Yes they did the Dracula 7 from a few months ago and now tackle cannabalism, kind of a Belle Stars type sound.
After watching a youtube short program about Boy George in London and seeing how he was a cool local there that I could identify with, I decided to pick this up at Goodwill Bucket store on lunchbreak one day. I actually kind of liked their stuff back in the day, didn't buy any but didn't have any issues with what the band was doing. I was there with everybody else on MTV when they made their splash
REPOST Request: Sorry about the bad lighting--must have been burning the midnight oil at my old place to get these done. Takes me back to fourth grade rollerskating rink days with bands like the Hawks, PEZBAND, the Kind, the Sweet or the Rollers,etc. but I got recommended this band by a collector at our local show who said their song, "Full Moon Turn My Head Around" is the perfect song in every way and indeed we have a few versions here to choose from. AKA the Thumbs.

REPOST Request: For the guy who was in one of their videos and it trying to find a copy. Good Luck! Very creative stuff from this old Minneapolis band who were Wolfman Jack fans and had him on the record. A cool bit at the end where they are just talking about the album and laughing about it. http://www22.zippyshare.com/v/UZ4tOJJG/file.html
Finding this at the big dollar sale the other day, I guess a guy in the band is from where I currently reside. I don't think I will post any more as the Merseybeat from this first one dissipates I guess.
SEARCH ABOVE FOR MORE and ADD ON: Talk about your U.S. bar rock (below post) here is one of the best along with the Beat Farmers...from Austin, TX.

THE SYSTEM - Sweat EP 83 w X-Periment LP 84 w The Pleasure Seekers LP 85 w Don't Disturb This Groove 7 w LP 87 w Coming To America EP 88 w I Wanna Be Your Lover EP 89 w Rhythm And Romance LP 89
REPOST Request: The early stuff by this NY band is like it says experimental, which is cool. The latter stuff is really no different from what Paul Weller and the Style Council were doing at the same time. But after they make it big with the movie soundtrack, they get gentrified into that generic Michael Jackson R & B sound so you may want to skip the last link. Interesting side note: I saw a post somewhere about a little girl who saw hell and said Michael Jackson and Selena were there and people who listened to their music would also go to hell! LOL very interesting...
