How artistic are you? Unchikun Records wants to know and they are holding a contest to win a free autographed copy of the Tullycraft tribute CD: Wish I’d Kept A Scrapbook. Check out the details here.
Today we have the song Pink Lemonade performed by Hot Lava from the Tullycraft tribute Wish I’d Kept A Scrapbook.
On this day in 2009 Fishboy performed at the Vera Project in Seattle. I’ve heard the new Fishboy album, tentatively titled Classic Creeps, and it’s great! Today we have the song Broken Bones from the Fishboy EP Nom.
Everyone’s favorite drummer, and perhaps the most beloved member of Tullycraft is celebrating a birthday today. Happy Birthday Jeff Fell!
On this day in 1985 The Cure released their sixth studio album, The Head on the Door. This was the first album to feature drummer Boris Williams who had previously worked with the Thompson Twins. Today we have the song A Man Inside My Mouth. This was the B-side to the “Close to Me” 7″ – the second single released from The Head on the Door album.
On this day in 1967 the Monkees performed in Seattle, WA. On this same day in Belleville, Illinois, Jeff Tweedy, from the band Wilco was born . In 2007 Tweedy said: “I’ve definitely felt inspired by all of the musicians I’ve been able to play with in Wilco, but in terms of finding a perfect scenario of living with and interacting with a band – on the road, and in the studio – this is a new feeling for me. If we all lived together, it would be like the Monkees.” Today we have the song Randy Scouse Git by the Monkees.
As some of you may know there’s a Tullycraft tribute album called Wish I’d Kept A Scrapbook coming out on September 14. If you simply can’t wait for that release, perhaps the new EP by the Glasgow based band The Awkward Turtle will hold you over? It’s called F*ck Me I’m Twee! An Awkward Tribute To Tullycraft and it features this terrific cover of Georgette Plays A Goth. Enjoy!

On this day in 2006 the Swedish band Lacrosse, performed five songs at a Stockholm music festival called Vieille Montagne. One of the songs was a cover version of the Tullycraft song “Superboy & Supergirl.” I haven’t heard their rendition, but I’m told it was wonderful. Today we have The Manhattan Love Suicides‘ cover version of Superboy & Supergirl. Enjoy!
