The Ledge #565: Some More Home Plays

This week is another show devoted primarily to music I've been listening to around the house. The first half is dominated by new tracks recently sent to me by various labels, and sometimes the artists themselves. There's a new tune from Sioux Falls' own Thought Patrol. There's Big Stir's latest projects featuring former Standells leader Tony Valentino. There's the usual handful of Rum Bar Records releases, including the return of The Short Fuses.

The second half of the show are highlighted by recent box set releases of The Velvet Underground, Dead Moon, and the legendary live 2Tone Dance Craze soundtrack, along with favorites by the New York Dolls, The Mummies, The Creation, The Pretty Things, and Paul Revere & The Raiders. There's almost 60 years of fabulous rock and roll!

As for this week's edition of "52 Weeks of Teenage Kicks", I don't have a lot of background information regarding the version by a band called Funeral Service. All I've managed to find out is that they were a French band that put their cover out in 1986 as the b-side to a version of the classic "Pills". If you have any info on this band, please let me know.

And please, please, please pass the word on that I'm still looking for brand new covers of The Undertones classic tune. If you have the capability to record your own version, or know some great musician friends, get on it and send the recording to paulisded @ gmail dot com.
