"Chiru Hits??" by Chiru
This song and video blew my mind! So much to take in. I especially like the Arthur Lee-style Badadadadadadadadada
"Confusion" by Electric Light Orchestra
Everyone knows ELO rules. Have you ever seen that Live at Wembley footage though? Super-boring even though the tunes are rad. But the DVD of Wembley has an extra treat - videos for the entire Discovery LP! You get Don't Bring Me Down, yeah. But also Last Train to London, Shine A Little Love, Wishing... Every track on it rules, especially when you see Jeff Lynne singing in the reflection of some animated Aviators. Or when gazing upon Bev Beven's open blouse. Or when the whole crew is playing amongst 10 foot high rainbows and cartoon spaceships. I slept on this record for awhile. Now I can't get Confusion out of my frickin' head. Not even two months later.
"Annabella" by Billy Kinsley
Long time no write. I may have mentioned Rockin' Horse before. They were a rad Beatlesque band from the early 70's led by Jimmy Campbell and Billy Kinsley. Billy was in the Merseybeats and then was half of the Merseys who did the hit version of the classic "Sorrow". After Rockin' Horse and before Billy started Liverpool Express (who did a Wings/Pilot pop) he recorded two killer 45's. My favorite side is Annabella. McCartney Pop at it's finest...
"ALL" by Danny Kirwan
from 2nd solo LP (self titled US version)
What's up everyone. New York's rad, BTW. I got some cool records so far - like this D.K. solo LP. I REALLY want his first one "Second Chapter" cuz it's supposed to be all pop like McCartney but all America'ed out as well. This one is right there in America/Bread territory. It has this rad bendy mono-synth playing the counter-melodies through a bunch of the tunes. Ironically it has a real Buckingham-Nicks era Mac feel to it too. I'm really bummed I missed Colin & Rod out there but I did score a $2 copy of Ennismore (my 2nd) at the Chelsea Flea Market. I decided the Ennismore Quartet might be a tight name for a group.
"I Believe In A Thing Called Love" by The Darkness
from advance video
A friend of mine has a tape of this new band. They're Hilaarious. Queen falsettos and shit and really really catchy
"It's Alright" by Black Sabbath
from Technical Ecstasy
Raddest pop tune from Sabbath's last Lp with Ozzy. This one is written and sung by the drummer, Bill Ward. Why he didn't write and sing more is beyond me. Black Sabbath already ruling hard enough probably had something to do with it.
"*some*" by Rab Noakes
from Red Pump Special
Nice '74 Lp from Rab. He was in the first incarnation of Stealer's Wheel and Gerry and Joe help him out here. He's got a similar sound to Stealer's and some Gallagher / Lyle - McGuinness / Flint, too. I'd love to hear his "Do You Hear The Lights" lp.
"Ain't Nothing Gonna Stop Us" by The Quick
from 45 and MP3
This is Eric Carmen's band before the 'berries. Full-on Small Faces shouting here. There's a little breakbeat in the intro and rad Kenny Jones phased drum rolls, too. Check it.
"All" by Bread
from On The Waters
the Perfect Album from start to finish, one of the raddest cover art, front and back.
"To Claudia On Thursday" by Denny Doherty
from California 99
Here's another cool Denny D. track on arranger Jimmie Haskell's insane/misguided concept album, California 99. Two Millennium covers on here - they do Prelude and this track with extra harmonies and Denny singing lead. Great version.The full story is here Any other "People Like Me" fans out there? That's my favorite Mamas & Papas Lp.
