Steve MackaySadly, today we have two obituaries. We say the last goodbye to the legendary Stooges saxophone player Steve Mackay. He was also with Sonny Vincent and The Spite most recently, which is one of the hottest records this year. Also, Carey Lander, keyboardist of Camera Obscura passed away. She was only 33. We also introduce some new music from James And The Ultrasounds from Memphis, Heaters from Grand Rapids, MI, Clearance from Chicago, Andy Shauf from Canada and Kontiki Suite from England. Some of our listeners may remember our first Vinyl Junkyard editions five years ago that featured mysterious troubadour Peter Isaacson. Well, we have found him! He now goes by Clay Canfield and lives and plays music in Vermont, after some time spent apparently in Nashville and Texas where he rubbed shoulders with the likes of Townes Van Zandt. Thanks to his fans who contacted us here at the Little Lighthouse and gave us this information! All the best to them and Clay/Peter.

The ButtshakersWe have several new artists for the first time at The Little Lighthouse in today’s show. Justin Townes Earle is Steve Earle’s son and he covers The Replacements’ Can’t Hardly Wait. The Buttshakers from Lyon, France cover Brenton Wood’s Gimme Little Sign. Camera Obscura is a fancy new band from Scotland and Ean Eraser is a mysterious new artists with a great new 45″ record. It’s also great to see Joe Dee Graham from True Believers and Scrappy Newcomb from Ian McLagan’s Bump Band in their Austin city supergroup – The Resentments. By the way, I also played a nice bootleg from last week’s Bump Band’s live performance in Cleveland.
