SUMMER JAMS

SUMMER JAMS

As a Floridian summer is not a time of joy, but rather a time of unforgiving sweltering heat.  As a man well past his school years I also can no longer equate it with carefree days of galavanting, but rather of higher than usual air conditioning bills. I guess this is a sign that I'm truly becoming an old grump. That being said I am still able to enjoy the sounds of summertime (however never with the windows open), and now with the summer solstice is behind us,  despite my thermostat telling me summer has been here well over two months, summer...

BROWN ACID VOL 3.

The older I get the bigger  sucker I've become for obscure heavy rock groups that fill the dusty corners of history between the death of the 60's and the advent of punk. Acid damaged misfits equally informed by Stooges and Black Sabbath with no real place to call home. Putting out long forgotten 45s usually pressed privately and in miniscule numbers.   That's why its been such a delight that series such as the Bonehead Crunchers have come around in recent years. Collecting hard to find sides from  hard rock, proto-punk, heavy psych, and boogie bands you most likely have...
