So I’ve been staring at a computer screen a lot these last few weeks working on completing the Rock Bible. As such, I’ve been keeping a mental note of some bands that I’ve been meaning to find live/demo/rare recordings by. On the flight back from LA, I hunkered down and wrote down what I’m looking for. If anybody out there is mp3 saavy or willing to trade CD-Rs, get in touch! I’ve got tons of stuff I can reciprocate with, and hell, this site has become a tribute to my obsessiveness. I’ve earned this, dammit…..
These are in no special order:
Buzzcocks, Bad Brains, Stooges, Johnny Thunders, The Clash, The Misfits, 13th Floor Elevators/Roky Erickson, Thin Lizzy, Captain Beefheart, The Ramones, Generation X, Black Flag, Black Sabbath, The Fall, New York Dolls, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ramones, Germs, Dead Boys, any band on Dangerhouse, any mp3 CDs collecting material on the Document label, Bo Diddley, Van Halen, Link Wray, X Ray Spex, Birthday Party, The Buzzcocks, Devo, Jimi Hendrix, T-Rex, Roxy Music, James Brown, Minor Threat, Booker T and the MGs, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Velvet Underground, The Saints, Swell Maps, Gun Club, AC/DC, Brian Wilson-era Beach Boys, Electric Eels, The Pagans, Gene Vincent, King Crimson, Scott Walker and The Cramps
Doesn’t hurt to ask, now does it?
While I’m at it, I’m also looking for recordings of the following. They’re so butt ass rare and I don’t "do" the bit-torrent thing, so maybe somebody out there can help:
The Simpletones – s/t single
The Dancing Cigarettes
Okay, that’s it. Hit me up directly if you can help or wanna trade or something.
