Stiff RecordsToday’s show is another one of our vinyl junkyard editions. Just to remind you, in vinyl junkyard specials I play almost entire LPs that I found dirt cheap somewhere laying in some bargain bin at a record store. Usually the stuff comes from The Blue Arrow Records in Cleveland. Two records that inspired today’s and next week’s show are A Bunch of Stiff Records and Stiffs Live – two LPs put together by the legendary Stiff Records label back in the late 70s. We will hear almost all tracks from these two LPs. In addition to that, we will hear some 45s that came out on that legendary label. Actually, they were much better known for their 45s, but they early singles are notoriously difficult to come by in original editions and they definitely are not dirt cheap. But the LPs are easier to find and just as exciting. A lot of the stuff from Stiff records has come out on CDs by now, but listening to the original vinyl has its charm. Check out some Stiff music!

Miriam LinnaSecret star of this episode is Neil Young. Two of his songs recently saw inspiring covers. Kent State murders are having a 45 year anniversary this year. Neil wrote a song about the event and this year, Cleveland band Obnox recorded a cover. A totally different sounding Colleen Rennison’s new album is named after a Neil Young song See The Sky About To Rain from On The Beach. King Khan is very active these days. After his album with Gris Gris, he reunited with Mark Sultan in a new duet Bad News Boys. We also have Miriam Linna, once a member of Cramps and nowadays boss of Norton Records. She’s back into the “business” as a performer and has a solo album Nobody’s Baby. Howlin’ Rain led by Ethan Miller also has a new album Mansion Songs.

Vlasta PopićToday we represent the new album for Cincinnati’s Buffalo Killers. We also have Ex Cult from Memphis with their last year’s album which fell through the cracks. Chris Brokaw teamed up with Chicago professor Geoff Farina on a new acoustic guitar album. New names today are Canadian actress and singer with a great voice Colleen Rennison. Old Testament come from LA and bring out some strong roots rock. But, some of the most interesting things this week come from the SE Europe. Umreti Fit come from Szeged, Hungary and sing in Serbo-Croatian. Vlasta Popić from Varazdin, Croatia, bring out some jumpy, energetic rock’n'roll, which reminds me on Boye, especially on their tune Ako nisam dobra.
