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.

My Mind's EyeThis episode is a special dedicated to the record stores of Cleveland. Last Saturday afternoon I left out to see Bassholes. The gig was canceled so I decided to make a tour around Cleveland’s record stores. Friend of mine Jaime made me company. We first hit My Mind’s Eye which I frequently visit. The store has two rooms, one filled with CDs and other filled with two vinyl sections – one with new stuff and other with used stuff. There is also a section with literature. So I grabbed the newest Manchild by Brian Walshby. Again, it comes with Melvins CD as a bonus. I also got a few LPs. Then Jaime suggested we hit Hodad’s. I never been there before, but I love the place. A bunch of records of all genres and ages and a very cute 7″ section. This is the only store in Cleveland that has reasonable prices for 7″. Quality is good too. Jamie picked two local 7″: Cobra Verde’s split with Leaving Trains and Downsider Special – the old band for the Cobra Verde’s Frank Vazzano. Then we drove over to Collinwood where we hit my favorite store Blue Arrow Records. To my surprise, they had a new bargain bin section filled with 1 and 2 dollar records. It was not your typical bargain bin section – it had a lot of cool stuff. Among other’s phenomenal second LP for the House of Freaks, Tantilla. This was an opportunity for the owner of the Pete Gulyas and I to reminisce about the tragic demise of Bryan Harvey’s family. When we got to This Way Out, a photo shoot with some chick dressed in skimpy outfits took place over there. We took this opportunity to ruin their photo shoot by posing with them, and we spent some time chatting with Dave who reveals to us that he volunteers at the store in the breaks of being a rock star. Then we went to Music Saves the next door. It was closed for the moment, but we gave up waiting and left home with bags full of records. This show is (almost) entirely consisted of music bought that day!
