The Spunk Lads - Greenwich Mean Time

London/Brooklyn

http://www.myspace.com/spunkladsarego

I just got an email from Scott Turner - The Spunk Lads are playing their last last show ever this Saturday at Freddy’s Back Room in Brooklyn - where it all started for the second time. You see, the band was originally founded back in 1971 in London but reformed in Brooklyn in January 2001 (I was at that first show at Freddy’s and nearly every show they played over the next 6 years) In fact, I was at the Southpaw “reunion” show in this video. My facebook photo was taken at this show actually…

Anyway, this is an important show to to go if you are in NYC. I know there is a ton of CMJ madness going on, but you won’t experience anything like this again. Trust me.

Career Suicide - Recipe for Disaster

Trying something new posting a video, because I love this guy rocking out. Also, if this were a song on Rockband, I would absolutely fail out in half a second even on easy on any instrument.

Meese - The Start of It

Denver, Co

http://www.meesemusic.com/

The only reason I’m posting this song is to prove that Meese is in fact a word and counts in the game of Boggle because I found it on myspace. It’s the plural of moose the same way geese is the plural of goose, right. right.

Vivian Girls - Tell The World

Brooklyn, NY

These girls make me excited for the NYC music scene again. They bring me back to all the great punk bands of the 90’s mixed with…The Mamas & The Papas. 

Check out the video for this song at the band’s website  http://www.freewebs.com/viviangirls/
