SM203 Phil Gammage "Motel Songs"
20-song retrospective of best of Phil's solo work. Lead guitarist of Certain General and front man of Corvairs steps out on his own, leading a cast that's a veritable who's who of the downtown NYC music scene (Feelies, Love Delegation, Lydia Lunch Band, Certain General, Band of Outsiders, Corvairs, Nikki Sudden, Richard Lloyd Band, Richard Hell Band, Fleshtones).
SM204 Darrell Rose/Afrikan Drum Festival "Wisdom"
Debut release from Afrikan Drum Master leading his own outfit. Rose has performed with the legendary Wailers, Odetta, John McCutcheon, and Cory Hart. As a band leader for the first time, this is a drum album like no other. A taste of the Last Poets, a nod from 70's era Miles Davis and a psychedelic attitude insures heady experience.
Claudia a hit in Saskatchewan! -- At least that's the reports we're getting from Jeff at Radio Free Saskatoon where he states that the Claudia single is a favorite amongst the air-staff and listeners.
Certain General performed a rare NYC club appearance to celebrate the release of An Introduction to War at Don Hill's in the Village. Read the Glorious Noise.
