The Later Jin Singles

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Jin records was a swamp pop record label. according to wikipedia "The swamp pop sound is typified by highly emotional, lovelorn lyrics, tripleting honky-tonk pianos, undulating bass lines, bellowing horn sections and a strong rhythm and blues backbeat"

here are some songs

lovers plea - lee martin and the velvet tones

Margo White - I'm not ashamed

try me - clint west with the boogie kings

rufus jaganeaux - opelousas sostan ..

Suburban Kids With Biblical Names

I like this band. All the good pop music seems to come from Sweden these days
Shitty Weekend
Trees and Squirrels
Seems To Be On My Mind

My advent calendar today contained a Christmas tree and the secret word was SNOW (i think Joe's might have been too).

Thanks for listening. x

The Sonics Christmas

Here are 3 songs added to a 1999 Norton Re-issue of their original album

'The Village Idiot' is funny.

The Phantom

Flip-side to 'Whisper Your Love' recorded in 1958, 
Second and final take has the best intro to a song ever.

i think this is the only thing Jerry Lott a.k.a The Phantom
ever recorded, after he was injured in a car accident in which he went 600 feet down a mountain side in South Carolina.
Oh dear...

The Phantom - Love Me

The Phantom - Love Me [Take 1]

Juno - "A comedy about life!!!

Stupid Street

Feeling Cold (this one is my favourite)

Apocalyptic Grades 2005 A.D.

The Chiffons

This song is a b-side to "After Last Night" released on Reprise records in 1962, by a group called 'The Chiffons' from California.

Apprently having no connection to the more famous Chiffons who had a number one hit with 'He So Fine'. Reissue LP's even include the other groups songs, but with pictures of the
New York Chiffons.

Judge for yourself.

The Chiffons - Doctor Of Hearts

the modds

hi this is my first upload onto our blog: its called 'leave my house' by a band called The Modds. its got that cool 60s garage crudeness to it and the funny thing is no-one knows anything about who made it or where it comes from

The Umpteens

"In the Spring of 1997, The Umpteens, a little known but much-beloved rock group from Boston, broke up mid-performance at a local university." - Donlennon.com
Great story about the band can be found here at actionpop! records.

A few songs were recorded as The Umpteens before Don Lennon went onto a solo career.
