Bob City - Swap Buggy Racin' - Dead Man

Some heavy late 90's grungy punk metal. Sounds like a cross between Tad and Earthride. The vocals sound like Sherman from earthride a lot. I would imagine that after a 12 pack and a few shots of Yager back in 1998 that old Bob here would have been a hell of a fun ride to have seen live.... Once again thanks to my good record pal Gene Mullett for turning me on to another forgotten Ohio nugget. Kudos brother!

Ed Pauling And The Exciters - Soul House

Ed Pauling And The Exciters from 1965 w/ a great swinging blues/soul instrumental with some killer guitar work on the great Savoy Records label. The horns keep it pumping and we get a little bass solo action w/ some answering guitar. Neat. The tune ends rather abruptly and i'd have liked it to jam on for a bit more but whats there is pretty excellent. jam on it.

The Doughboys - Everybody Knows My Name - Candy Candy

Bubble gum pop rocks w. a slight psych feel from 1967. Scant info is out there but then again i didn't look very hard. Any info would be appreciated. Sorta sounds like The Monkees or The Royal Guardsman, which aint a bad thing in my mind. I'm too lazy to scan the B side but if you want it let me know and i can do it..... lates.

Cuppa Joe - Bottlerocket

Cool little indie rocker from the obscure but great Dromedary Records label. Both from the great state of New Jersey. Released sometime in 1993.... that's 20 fucking years ago.... holy shit.... Sounds a bit like Sonic Youth. There is a copy up on eBay right now; BIN for 99.99 bucks! Have at it!

Chuck Murphy - Who Drank My Beer (While I Was In The Rear)

I hate when this happens... Not much has changed since 1952.

Here is what Billboard had to say about it Jul 19, 1952: Pleasant ditty is given good pace by a spirited western featuring a honky tonk piano. Murphy half-talks half-sings the lyrics with proper dolefulness while the boys in teh band add a gang vocal in spots. Should do okay in tavern jukes.
