After posting my interview w/ them yesterday, realized it had been a long time since I’d actually listened to Virginia Dare’s “Baby Got Away”. Great record.
Have a feeling there will be a great many folks “unearthing” this band during the coming decade – and get this, they say they’re reuniting…!
Not sure I’d have thunk it, but THE GORIES, on the basis of evidence presented on the “Shaw Tapes – Live in Detroit 5/27/88”, were already a smoking live band by mid-1988. I interviewed them for my old fanzine in 1991, and they belittled themselves and their early days as being crude and drunkenly inept. Not so – and this live record is a great one, as live records go.
I wrote up a guide to essential music apps for you iPhone users who, you know, listen to music & stuff. Perhaps you’ve heard of Spotify and Soundcloud, but may I please introduce you to FlickTunes, 8Tracks, iCrates and Bandcamper?
