The California based Boyish Charms have just released their sixth full length album Infinity in its Infancy on Talking Helps Records. The LP is a limited pressing of 300 (100 on white vinyl). Today we have a song from Infinity in its Infancy called The Tweed Twig. Happy Monday.
On this day in 1984, the Thompson Twins single “Hold Me Now” entered the US Top 40. It was the first single from the British band’s fourth album Into The Gap, and it eventually became their highest charting hit reaching #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Today we have a sloppy version of Hold Me Now by Tullycraft. This was recorded many years ago in a single evening in Chris Munford’s living room. Apologies in advance.
The Pooh Sticks are performing tonight at Bush Hall as part of the London Popfest. I would love so much to be at this show. The Pooh Sticks are one of my favorites and I’ve never seen them play. Today we have a live recording of Sex Head by The Pooh Sticks. Enjoy!
On this day in 2007 Tullycraft performed with Casper & the Cookies and the Apples In Stereo at the Subterranean in Chicago (during a snow storm). Today we have a live recording of If You Take Away the Makeup, Then The Vampires They Will Die from that show.
On this day in 1992 Nirvana performed at Pink’s Garage in Honolulu, Hawaii. Today we have a live recording of the song Negative Creep from that show.
On this day in 1977 Blondie played in Los Angeles for the first time opening for The Ramones at the Whisky A Go Go. Today we have the French version of Sunday Girl by Blondie.
Today we have the song February 15th by The Crabs from the album What Were Flames Now Smolder. Happy Tuesday!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Today we have the song Valentine’s Day by Benji Cossa. Enjoy!
On this day in 1983 KISS performed at the Convention Center in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Today we have some funny Paul Stanley stage banter and another song by the Gazetteers called K.I.S.S.. Happy Friday!
Frank Boscoe’s most recent band the Gazetteers have a new album out on Jigsaw Records. You might already be familiar with Frank’s other bands Vehicle Flips and Wimp Factor 14. Original Tullycraft guitarist, Gary Miklusek, was also in the Pittsburgh based Wimp Factor 14. The new Gazetteers album is titled We Are Here and as always Frank showcases his terrific songwriting ability. I am a true fan. Today we have Monkees ’67 by the Gazetteers. You can order the CD here. It’s only $5.
