Record cover of the week & happy halloween!

What's wrong here...?

There seems to be something very, very wrong with this guy, while he has a very beautiful lady standing and looking down right “HAWT” and ready for some action right next him, he’d rather dress up a giant bread and dance with that!

What gives!?!?!?

Anyway, Happy halloween everyone! Hope a few enjoyed the Halloween show we did on WLFR last week!

Until next time!

A little something for DJ Prestige

Since my man was giving us the low down on Clifford Curry & the Soul Ranger 45, i thought I'd post my copy of The Five Pennies - Mr. Moon since there is a connection.

Bop on over the Flea Market Funk for more info!

One of these days i will be able to link the sounds but for now a pic will have to suffice.

Solace - Black Black - Limited Vinyl Pressing

To all that do not know, I play in a band called "Solace" and the good folks at "land-o-smiles" records just put out our last record on limited press color vinyl.

400 pressed and never to be re-pressed:

take a gander at these beauties!

if you dig on heavy 70's style hard rock in the vein of Black Sabbath get your hands on a few copies now!

here's a few reviews:

SOLACE - BLACK BLACK EP Underdogma Records

SOLACE is back with a blast! After the mighty debut album FURTHER and the weaker follow up "13" I personally didn’t give a dime for a good comeback. The Split with GREAT DAY FOR UP some years ago was a first step, but with this 4 track EP they are back with a blast! The opener WORLD OF FIRE is an 8 minute long Stoner monster with a lot of tempo changing and with the mighty vocals from Jason! This song features all the SOLACE sound. Fat and mighty grooving guitar riffs, great solo guitars, variations in the songs and the mighty, from screaming to whispering, vocals from Jason. DESTROY THE GIFT starts with some Doom Metal riffs and turns into a typical Solace smasher! Highlight on this EP is the 14 minute Doom smasher called THE DEVILS CLOCK. The riffs will blow you away and it sounds like a bulldozer destroying some walls. The song turns into a solo-guitar ending with some great tunes. This is the part you can bang your head out! Cool! And the last track is a cover version of a CURE song! You will not know that song after some listening! It rocks and you think it is a SOLACE track! One of the heaviest and best Stoner Rock bands from the states are back and I can’t wait to hear a new record! Get it!

Music: Stoner Rock
Sound: 9
Music: 9
Info: 4 Songs / 33 minutes


Solace - The Black Black
Review by John Pegoraro (
Underdogma Records (CD)/Land o Smiles (vinyl)
Release date: May 2007

This time last year, New Jersey's Solace had imploded. Their third full-length, A.D., was dead in the water and they were headed for the “coulda shoulda woulda” file, another obscure band that coulda shoulda woulda kicked the world in the ass had they not been too busy tripping over their own feet.

Then they were offered a slot on the Roadburn Festival and that one gig managed to reinvigorate the five-piece. A.D. has been dusted off, and while it's still not finished (making it our Chinese Democracy), the four new tracks on The Black Black offer nothing but good news for the band and for their fans.

If I had to describe The Black Black in a word, it would be one long girlish shriek of joy. The three originals - “Khan (World of Fire),” “Destroy the Gift,” and “The Devil's Clock” - and their cover of The Cure's “World War” deliver classic Solace and then some. The current line-up recorded only one other original, “Cement Stitches” from their split with Greatdayforup, and while a great song, it didn't fully capture what the band was capable of doing. Solace is a guitarist's band, and The Black Black is replete with riffs, harmonized solos, blistering solos, moody solos, solos that make the hairs on your arm stand up, and the type of solos that make your dog run around in circles, barking at nothing, but never to the point where they sacrifice actual songs. They've stepped up their songwriting in the years since 13, and the end result is an ugly, aggressive, and unique blend of rock, doom, and metal. Credit to that also needs to go to frontman Jason, whose use of both clean, melodic vocals and a fierce shriek adds considerable dynamics to the tracks (especially "The Devil's Clock").

Is this the best material Solace has written? Damn straight. Given the 33 minutes running time, it's debatable whether this will be Album of the Year or EP of the Year. Either way, this is highly recommended. Holy fucking hell, this rules.

Record cover of the week & a few scores

One of my fave cha cha lp's here. a disembodied pair of legs with some hot fishnets.

I didn't get out to the spot and looks like i missed out as DJ Prestige had a special guest out for a dig, DJ Andy Smith. and by the looks of things on his "Flea Market Funk" blog the duo faired pretty well too.

No worries I had a good time out in Philly with my Kids and lady friend and I also managed to pick picked up a few Lp's today.

Julie London - Julie is her name Volume Two - Liberty LRP 3100
The Surfaris - Hit City 65 - Decca DL 4614 - Still in the shrink!
Claude Williamson Trio - Keys West - Capitol T6511
Easy Rider - Music From the Soundtrack - Dullhill DSX 50063
B.T. Express - Do It 'till You're Satisfied - scepter SPS 5117
Beatles - Bach - Bacharach - Go Bossa - MFP 5206
Art Mooney - Cha Cha Cha - Parade SP 379
Honey to A Bee - Rated "X" Records Promo 12"

Man, The Beatles - Bach - Bacharach is a strange piece. I mean it's a mix of The Beatles, Bach, & Burt Bacharach all doing Bossa Novas in a Brazilian style... Looks German. Kooky man, Kooky!

Saturday scores

the rare occasion that i didn't have my kids got me out to "the spot" Saturday and it turned out pretty good. got a nice mono version of the kinks you really got me on the tri color reprise and a few other cool lp's along with some much needed mutha punk rock in the accelerators. the fisrt skullflower 7", aweirdo's 7" as well as NJ legends Big Nurse on heat blast! A label i know a little bit about since my ancient band Godspeed cut a single on that label back in 90 or 91...

I was hoping to run into DJ pres but he was a no show so i hooked up with Jack the Ripper who was out and about so that was pleasant surprise, the weather was beautiful and there were plenty of records. not all "gems" but the digging on a great day with some good company in Jack, the lady friend JJB and my old Pal Mike the record guy who I have been buying records off since the 80's is always a good deal.

Soul invaders inc - the one that got away!


SOUL INVADERS INC - Careless loving / So good


so I'm at the flea market yesterday and it was pretty dead but i stumble upon a box of 45's and there is NOTHING in the box, i mean some beat up late 60's early 70's pop like the carpenters and osmonds and just in the worst shape. Towards the end of the box i pull out this interesting looking 45. It's the Soul Invaders Inc on Yorktown. I don't know anythingabout this record but it has "the look".

Great name.

Cool label I've never seen before.


I pull it out and ask "how much"

dude says, "I'm selling the whole box for 10 bucks"

i say, "well there isn't much else i could use in there i'll give you 2 bucks for the 45"

dude says as he snatches the 45 from my hand "i'm selling the whole box for 10 bucks"

whoa killer, ease up....

I make a call to my bud DJ Pres and ask him if he knows anything about the 45.

he says he doesn't but says go for it and buy the whole box.

So I go back and say ok man i'll take the box for 10 bucks it's kinda slow out here, yada, yada, yada....

dude says "you can have the box for 10 without that 45, i'm gonna hold onto that one"

I mean what the hell? The flea market set is starting to really get under my skin.

It was obvious he was using the fact that i wanted this and only this 45 to look it up and see what it was worth.

So i get home and i look it up online and of course its a psych soul peice out of NYC and fairly rare. The kind of shit that is right up my alley.

I'm wicked bummed. I know i shoulda just took the chance the 1st time and bought the box but I'm trying to be more thrifty and ease up on my wallet these days so...

That there is the story of the one that got away.

if anyone has a copy that would like to send my way, i'm up for a trade or purchase as it just eats away at me now knowing that i had it in my hands and lost it!
