I start this week’s show off with, in my opinion, the greatest intro to a song ever. I then play a Hellacopters tune covered by The Hives. As Bloodlights have a new album out early Autumn I thought I’d play a song from it. I also play, as reported on the Rock and Roll Geek Show Forum, a track of one of the strangest supergroups to emerge for a long while. They are called Tinted Windows and feature members of Cheap Trick, The Fountains Of Wayne, The Smashing Pumpkins and *ahem* Hanson. One of my favourite, but short lived, bands of the early Eighties was Scarlet Party. I dug out their debut 7” and thought I’d give it a play. I missed, again, seeing The Divine Rights Of Kings farewell gig in Clapham at the end of last month. So I play a song by them that you or I won’t be hearing live anytime soon! Word has reached us that the Wildhearts are going to be releasing a new album this year and to celebrate I play a track by Wildhearts bassist Scott Sorry’s other band Sorry And The Sinatras. The next two bands I play, John Ford [Rich Jones played in them for a while], and Electric Shadows, don’t seem to have any websites but I’m sure if you google hard enough you’ll find something! The Thunder Boys, who are up next certainly do even though I think they might be no more. I also manage to slot in a live Nomads track taken from their live 1984 split 7” with The Fixed Up. Sticking with Stockholm; The Spitts have a new album out, but I play a track off their last CD. Last but no means least is Larry Wallis [who doesn’t have a website either, not even a myspace] with the addition of Paul Gray (Damned, Eddie & The Hotrods, UFO) and Steve Nichols (Eddie & The Hotrods) on bass and drums.
