Rockpile - Live In Concert 1979

This Rockpile live in concert collection was originally circulated on bootleggers 'Great Live Records' (GLR 9235). It is in fact an edit from two concerts, predominately the latter part of two gigs, both most likely to have been recorded in New York, USA, towards the end of Rockpile's fourth USA tour. Source: Most likely from two FM broadcasts, King Biscuit Flower Hour recorded their final tour show, (however this specific concert does not appear on their site), so their is some guessing on the set list sources below, (any music detectives out there who know more?). Sound Quality: FM stereo, all good listenable standard, you will note a change in audio levels on the last four tracks. Genre: Rock, Rockabilly, Pub Rock. Set: Ten songs split over two gigs. Set List: (Probable Palladium New York 20th August 1979) 1. Crawling From The Wreckage 3:03 2. Girls Talk 3:34 3. Cruel To Be Kind 3:07 4. I Hear You Knocking 2:29

New (and not so new) Music Round Up - March 2009

Having taken a rather long break from this site for the latter part of last year, I still have a rather sizable backlog of musical recommendations to share, however lets start with something brand spanking new !

The Washington Post describe them as 'a cross between Joanna Newsom and Modest Mouse' , for my part I would also relate them to Regina Spektor, however all of that said, they have a unique sound, and to put it simply, having listened to their forthcoming release last night, they are superb. Their debut release 'A Chopping Block' (5 song EP), is officially released on March 24th. Take a listen to 'In The Parlor' for a flavour of this exciting band.
