The Shillings - Children And Flowers - Lying And Trying




Today after my post France/Hellfest hang-over subsides and i recover from Subconjunctival Hemorrhage of the Eye, i give you The Shillings. The Shillings cut 3 great 45s from early ‘65 thru late ‘66 (their 1st, Cry appears on Mind Blowers Vol.12). Lying and Trying is the B-side of their Three Rivers label 45. The A-side is an excellent version of Children and Flowers, the song The Critters had a hit with.

I try not to share too much personal info here since this is a "music" blog and not a "me" blog and not that anyone cares other that coming on in here and taking some music but the fest i was just a part of was the single greatest musical event i have ever been a part of!!!

yeah and here is what Subconjunctival Hemorrhage of the Eye looks like....





Enjoy the songs after you vomit from my eye...

I have this single. It's a great one. Didn't know the band had more records. I'll have to keep an eye out.

Dude....back in '86 I had knee surgery and choked on the air tube when I was waking up. I got those in BOTH eyes. It was some freaky looking shit.

Holy fuck dude. That's the most ridiculous eye injury I've seen outside of Internet gross-out sites. Poke it a bunch, then take more pictures.
