HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! These guys used to play around this time of year and I would see them every time, many times at the annual Thanksgiving shows at First Avenue club so I was kind of missing that and so here is a cool post for you. I was at the canned food drive show while a friend taped it for me on the radio then I also taped the other radio segment with a few CARS songs mixed with a Jane's Addiction song! They also cover my favorites by the Descendents (Hope), Eddie and the Hot Rods (Do Anything You Want To Do), MC5 (Shakin' Street), Lulu (To Sir With Love) and even Marvin Gaye (Sexual Healing)!! I was surprised the old Loud Fast Rules early stuff per their first band name link didn't expire after last download with 30 day gap so check that out for the faster stuff. I had a request for the first 1984 LP "Say What You Will" so I pulled it out and damn those first two songs with Voodoo Doll really took me back to those "Long Day" s in my room growing up listening to that album quite a bit, when Dave had that controlled-to-silent scream--first two songs are killer but Twin Tone re-released all the albums w bonus tunes and will digitize so I don't post those.
