Happy Friday!

iPhone Pictures 06-23-2014 551We just learned that one of our favorite bands of all time and space, Smug Brothers have a new album tentative titled Woodpecker Paradise that they are planning to release on February 24th.  The band recorded it with Derl Robbins (of Motel Beds) and the album is the first to feature the band’s new lineup with one of the finest bassists that we know — Larry Evans on all tracks. The album will be available from Gas Daddy Go! Records in both CD and Digital formats!  To celebrate this fine achievement the band is playing on February 21st at Blind Bob’s in Dayton, Ohio with Human Cannonball and Forage!  Who wants to go with Dr. J?  You can expect to hear tracks from the album very soon on the show!

New Motel Beds video

One of Dayton’s saviors of rock and roll, our own Motel Beds keep getting attention for their ‘we are not afraid of guitar’ songs. Their video for the second song on their terrific new album, Dumb Gold is called “Valentimes”. Remember now and do not forget that the ‘Beds have made Dumb Gold available for a name your own price — that means it could be free but you really should cough up a few dollars! Great music for your music listening pleasure!

Once you hear a Motel Beds song, you cannot go back!
