ARGH

Hello folks.
Sorry to interrupt this broadcast (haha).
I thought I was back for good, but due to shitty circumstances (don't ask, it's too ridiculous), we've been kicked out from where we lived, so the result is :
I'm sitting in a bloody cyber-café again just to let you know that I'm pretty much homeless (more much than pretty actually).
Yup, no roof, no records, just the missus , a guitar and the old car.
God, I always loved Vince Taylor, but it's not a good reason to end up like him.
Okay, I'm not hopeless, you know me, good things are gonna come my way one day or another, but hey, it's pretty weird to sleep in a car.
So I really don't know when I'll be able to get my hands on a computer again (not my priority to be honest), so don't worry, you know what they say, 'cheer up, it's not the end of the world'.
Until the next time, I wish you the best.
Yours Truly,
Reverend 'Hobo' Frost.

HONEY, I'M HOME !

Johnny Powers !

Image
Born John Leon Joseph Pavlik in 1938 in East Detroit, Rockabilly artist Johnny Powers put together a band, Johnny Powers & His Rockets, with his friend Marvin Maynard on bass, Clark Locker on the drums, and Stan Getz on guitar(no, not the « Jazz Getz »).
Powers jumped to the Fox label in 1958, getting a pair of regional hits with "Rock Rock" and "Long Blond Hair." The group got steady work cutting demos, some of which have surfaced as bootleg releases in recent years (as always, thank you Norton Rec).

Things began to happen faster for Johnny Powers when his manager, Tommy Moers, got him a contract with Sun Records in 1959, heralded with the release of "With Your Love, With Your Kiss" b/w "Be Mine early that year.
A second single followed, but Powers was dropped by Sun in 1960.
He later became the first white artist signed to Motown Records, but with the passing of the '60s into the '70s, Power's career found him on the other side of the s…

Johnny Kidd !

Image
I'm so restless

Johnny Kid (born Frederick Albert Heath in Willesdon, London, on 23 November 1935) had formed his first band, a skiffle group called the Five Nutters, in 1957. They quickly outgrew their skiffle roots and, after a short period fronting the Fred Heath Combo, he joined Alan Caddy (guitar), Tony Docherty (rhythm guitar), and Ken McKay (drums), in early 1958 in an outfit that was dubbed Johnny Kidd & the Pirates, who were spotted by an EMI Records representative and signed to the label.
The group cut their first record, the outstanding Please Don't Touch, in April 1959, highlighted by Heath's menacing vocals, which reached number 26 on the British charts. The group's subsequent records were an uneven mix of solid R&B-based rock juxtaposed with awkwardly covered standards.
Unfortunately, like every other British label of the era, EMI was never sure how best to deal with rock & roll success, and the group was made to record any amount of dross in the…

Felix Mendelssohn & His Hawaiian Serenaders !

Image
Ah, sorry for the lack of posts, I have been quite busy lately.
Ok, that was very interesting.


Felix Mendelssohn (no, not him) had one of Britain's most popular bands in the 30s and 40s.
In the late 30's he became enamored with Hawaiian music and transformed the band into a Hawaiian style group complete with Hawaiian costumes and dancers and played music in Hawaiian style - often using genuine Hawaiian performers alongside British musicians.
They were heard regularly on the radio, seen on early TV work, and made a long and fascinating series of records between 1939 and 1951.
Felix Mendelssohn died, aged only 40, of Hodgkins’ Disease in Charing Cross Hospital on 4th February 1952.
Ouah Ouah Ouah.

Broke And Hungry !

Image
What ? Modern records on STGW ? What the hell ?

Hum.

Brothers & sisters, who said downhome blues was dead ?

Like most great ideas, the concept for Broke & Hungry Records was born in a bar. A juke joint, to be precise. But unlike most great ideas, this one went from half-baked bar babble to stark reality at a juggernaut’s pace.
In early October 2005, Broke & Hungry Records founder Jeff Konkel first slurred aloud the idea of starting a country blues label. Less than a month later Broke & Hungry Records was registered as a limited liability company in the State of Missouri.
You must understand that Jeff’s record label is one the BEST blues label you can find today.
Raw, dirty, raw, scratched, raw and tattered blues. Ooooooh yeah.
The first Jimmy ‘Duck’ Holmes cd been reviewed on this very blog last June, but I couldn’t leave you like that…

So thanks to Jeff Konkel , here’s a sampler !
I got my copy of the last cd a couple of days ago, and it hasn't left my cd player yet.
Well, …

Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee !

Image
Yeeehaaa, I'm back.
You're all happy, aren't you.
Well, you should be.

Brownie McGhee was born Walter Brown McGhee in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1915 and suffered from polio as a child, which incapacitated his leg.
His Brother is of course Stick ‘Spo-Dee-O-Dee‘ McGhee.
Sonny Terry wasn't born blind -- he lost sight in one eye when he was five, the other at age 18. That left him with extremely limited options for making any sort of feasible living, so he took to the streets armed with his trusty harmonicas. Terry soon joined forces with Piedmont pioneer Blind Boy Fuller, first recording with the guitarist in 1937 for Vocalion.
McGhee first met Sonny Terry in North Carolina in 1939 and worked with him and singer Paul Robeson in Washington, DC, in 1940. McGhee began to record for Okeh Records in 1940. He had Sonny Terry play on his recording session of Workingman's Blues, and a long-standing partnership was formed. Shortly after they relocated and broke into the New York Folk …

Kip Tyler !

Image
There's suave, ultra-suave and even, as the Legendary Stardust Cowboy would tell ya, psycho-suave, but the drawling, lazy-as-hell vocal and the mean'n'evil descending guitar line on Kip Tyler's LA hipster masterpiece pretty much out-suaves everybody.
And Sandy ‘Casbah’ Nelson was on drums...
