Good Gully Miss Mully?

Here's a great "grinder" by The Orchids.
No real mention of it on the internet anywhere. Nothing on the instromania page.
It really would be right at home on one of the Las Vegas Grind LP's.

Dust off your tassles and check it out here...

Billy Storm and The Valiants

This is one of my favorite albums. Its the perfect mix of jungle vibe vocal group sounds (lover, lover) and screaming rockers (good golly miss molly, frieda frieda).

This is a real "gateway" lp for people who are "doo wop" curious.

Billy Storm had an amazing voice that has the power to transport you to another plane of reality.

Extra bonus for the amazing last track that just has to be heard to be believed. Needless to say, it reminds me of "home"...

(sorry for the shitty picture of the LP, but it's the best one I could find, and I was too lazy to get out the digital camera to take a pic of my copy)


Also, be sure to check out for some insight into one of my favorite records; Hooty Sapperticker by Barbara and the Boys.

Thanks to colin for fixing the picture a bit....

Lux and Ivy's Favorites Volume 12: The Lux Interior Memorial Edition (Remaster)

Hard to believe it'll be a year tomorrow that Lux Interior passed away.

Here is the "remastered" edition of Lux and Ivy's Favorites volume 12, that "came out" a little after that.

I've cleaned it up sound wise a little bit. There wasn't all that much wrong with it, but since the cover was finished for this volume, I figured I'd take a look at the sound quality. Some of the tracks are from the best available elements, and sometimes, quality was sacrificed for a song's particular inclusion.

Over time, all the volumes will have covers and better sound. So delete any existing volume 12's and replace it with this one!

It's the cover that's of most importance for this volume. Again, I want to thank Adam Fitch for taking my idea and making it a reality. He does awesome work.

Also, tomorrow between 11PM and 1AM (est) check out SALAD DAYS on WRIR, Richmond Independent Radio. Dacoit Dan, Slickee Boys drummer and all around cool guy, will be hosting a Lux Tribute that will feature songs by The Cramps, Movie Trailers, Lux and Ivy sound bites, and Lux and Ivy Faves.

Dan asked me to come up with the songs for the show and I think it's really going to be great. His Mad Daddy Tribute show was great, so this should be too...

Check out the radio station's website at;

Oh, and here's what you came for...

AND here's a the lux tribute show i helped put together - oops, sorry, that link was wrong too...sheesh, here's the right i worked with dacoit dan from the slickee boys...
