EP Now On Sale at Bomp! in the U.S., More Airplay, and Some Reviews

Great news: If you’re in the U.S., you can find the new EP of Bowie/Action covers at Bomp! online for a cool $10.

A big thanks to DJ Penny Lane over at Punks in Parkas for playing our cover of “Can’t Help Thinking About Me” last month. You can hear the episode here.

We’re also grateful for some new reviews, including one in Shindig!, one written by Ian McCann for the forthcoming Record Collector, one by Henry Schneider for Exposé Online, and another by Jonathan Levitt for Blurt. We’re in the process of updating our Reviews page, but in the meantime, the wonderful Fruits de Mer has compiled several write-ups of our EP and of other new/must-hear FdM releases on their reviews page.

We’ll be back with more news soon.


Happy birthday, George Harrison!

Retrospace has reprinted Martin Lewis’ story behind “In the First Place,” the somewhat obscure and nearly forgotten track featured in the re-release of the 1968 film Wonderwall, for which George did the soundtrack. It’s worth checking out and listening to the original.

After that, definitely give Sidewalk Society’s version a listen. It’s as haunting and possibly even more dynamic than The Remo Four’s version.

You can sample it at Fruits de Mer Records’ Myspace page.

Once you’re in love with it, get a hold of the vinyl 7”, on which you’ll find three other cover gems performed by the band:

“Lazy Old Sun” by The Kinks, “Dandelion” by The Rolling Stones and “Tell Me (Have You Ever Seen Me)” by The Small Faces

The record is still on sale, but in short supply here.
