A Forgotten Album
Concrete Blonde: A great, forgotten rock band of the 80's and 90's (and 2000's as it turns out) recently came back to me. I think it's always great to pull those old albums off the shelf. Dammit, if they are still some good songs. I'm pretty sure my counterparts won't agree, but I know of at least 5 people, including myself, that still enjoy these guys. My sister introduced them to me when I was probably 15 (she's one of the 5 mentioned above). Anyway, enjoy some nostalgic 90's rock off the album Still In Hollywood:
1. Everybody Knows: Supposedly named Concrete Blonde due to their hard hittin rock as well as introspective lyrics. I reckon this is supposed to be introspective.
2. Bloodletting (The Vampire Song): Reminds me of some noir flick (check out Brick for a recent noir masterpiece). Also, very Buffy-esqe. I like the drums > bass > guitar intro.
3. 100 Games of Solitare: 90's Rock/Country? There's a little slide guitar in there.
