Flashlite #340: Vinyl Junkyard 13

GutterballThis is another one of our Vinyl Junkyard editions at the Little Lighthouse. In Vinyl Junkyard specials I play almost entire LPs that I found dirt cheap somewhere laying in some bargain bin at a record store. This time we have two more albums from the nineties. Nineties were a time where LPs were being phased out on the market in favor of CDs. Still, some important record also saw vinyl versions. Today we have the first album for Gutterball and The Fall-Outs compilation album Here I Come and other Hits. Gutterball was a supergroup consisting of Steve Wynn (ex Dream Syndicate), Bryan Harvey and Johnny Hott (from House of Freaks), Stephen McCarthy (Long Ryders) and Bob Rupe (Silos). It was formed at the moment where Wynn’s solo career was not performing so well, House of Freaks were critically acclaimed, but also failed to chart in the post Nirvana era. Long Ryders and Silos broke apart, so the quintet went into the recording studio over in Richmond with a lot of good songs and great new-found energy. The resulting album was astonishing. Fall-Outs had a string of perfect singles in the late 80s and Estrus Records put them all together in ’93 on a great compilation record.

Gutterball – Top of The Bill;
Gutterball – Trial Separation Blues;
Gutterball – Lester Young;
Gutterball – Motorcycle Boy;
Gutterball – One By One;
Gutterball – When You Make Up Your Mind;
Gutterball – Think It Over

The Fall-Outs – Here I Come;
The Fall-Outs – Brothers;
The Fall-Outs – Like Me;
The Fall-Outs – I’m Going Home;
The Fall-Outs – Greed;

The Fall-Outs – Another Fad;
The Fall-Outs – She’s Out There;
The Fall-Outs – Bury My Body;
The Fall-Outs – Made My Bed Gonna Lie In It;
The Fall-Outs – Brainiac;
The Fall-Outs – Scarecrow;
The Fall-Outs – Our Company;
The Fall-Outs – You Just Can’t Win.

Leyla McCallaA couple of new things today. Ty Segall is in action again, putting out a demo version of his last year’s album Twins, now renamed into Gemini. So the concept is now closed, it’s a twin record. He also has a band called Fuzz, but now, to complete the confusion, there’s a different band called The Fuzz, from Memphis, fronted by Hector, supposedly brother of Harlan T. Bobo, although I’m not so sure if it’s really not the same elusive rock’n’roll songwriter. Jazz pianist Keith Jarrett recorded a jam boogie record in 1986 called No End, in which he recorded all the instruments. This came out only now, after 27 years. The rest of the show is bit more conventional. We have a new band called White Denim from Austin, TX and a New Orleans cellist Leyla McCalla who recorded an LP with Langston Hughes lyrics. By the way, the house in which he lived in Cleveland is on sale these days. Also, we check out Evan Dando’s tribute to Tarka Cordell and Lemonheads’ de-luxe reissues. But we start off with Dream Syndicate who had an amazing reunion gig in Cleveland last week.

Alejandro Escovedo The Baseball Project is a new “supergroup”, put together by Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Peter Buck (REM), Scott McCaughey (Minus 5) and Linda Pitmon (Zuzu’s Petals). They recorded a new album Frozen Ropes and Dying Quails completely dedicated to baseball. I know absolutely nothing about baseball, but I know a few things about rock’n’roll and this album definitely rocks. We check it out in this new edition of the Little Lighthouse. Also, Alejandro Escovedo is back with the second album after the horrible disease that nearly crushed him. This time, it seems, he is stronger than ever. His new album Real Animal is also a concept record, completely about his rock’n’roll experience – both as a fan of music and as an active participant. Filled with numerous musical and lyrical references and quotes, this record is a truly unique and heartfelt to the rock’n’roll lifestyle.
