Low Cut Connie used to be a band of two primary songwriters: Adam Weiner and Dan Finnemore. Dan is now with Swampmeat Family Band and Adam continues with Low Cut Connie. It’s a wonderful coincidence that we have new songs by both bands in today’s show. Legendary punks X from Los Angeles are also back with the original line up on a new record Alphabetland. Original line up means Billy Zoom on guitar. They revisit a song they did on an album without Billy on the new record and we check that out. Back then, Tony Gilkyson was with the band on guitar. And Tony’s sister Eliza has a new record too. David Bromberg revisits his 1972 song Diamond Lil in his brand new record. Glenn Danzig is here with a cover album dedicated to Elvis Prisley. Beth Bombara is back with the new record and Whitney Rose is a new singer songwriter that we introduce in this episode. Also introducing are Fred and Rose from Argentina, who named themselves after a historical couple who committed crimes. Suicide Swans are also a new band for us, they come from Toowoomba in Australia.
