Louis Carpenter's All Stars w/ Mad Man Jones

I've been a bit of a Mad Man this week (or monkey if you prefer...) so i thought of this 45 to post.

Mad records was started by Tommy "Mad Man" Jones in the late 50's. It's gotta be one of the better record label designs I've seen, and it's one of my favorites. It looks like something out of Mad Magazine.

I believe this track was on one of the Las Vegas Grind editions. Great grinding action on this one...

For more information on Mad Records and or Mad Man Jones, check out this great bio and overview of the label here:

And enjoy the tune here:


Oh, by the way, all the "yeah's" are by Mad Man Jones, the music is by Louis Carpenter's All Stars...

The Sliders

Speaking of Forbidden City Dog Food, I stumbled across the 45 by The Sliders recently. The A-side, The Lamb Shake is featured on FCDF and just might make an appearance on an upcoming volume of Lux and Ivy's Favorites.

The B-side turns out to be a half way decent instrumental as well.



Speaking of LAIF, I'll be posting The Lux Interior Memorial Edition with artwork soon. Some of the songs have been cleaned up a bit, and Adam Fitch and I designed a cover for it. It really came out great. More soon.

Enjoy the tunes.

Mogul Monster!

Here's a great instrumental produced by Kim Fowley.

I highly recommend you pick up the new Norton Records LP/CD releases of Kim Fowley produced songs. Insanely cool liner notes.


To hear the other side of this record (a solid 60's garage tune about skiing) head on over to WFMU's Ichiban Rock and Soul (outta)Site!
