Day 214

Godfathers- More Songs About Love & Hate

I love it when I pull out an unexpected gem from the .99 cent crates at Waterloo Records. I only got this record because I always liked the Godfathers tune, "Birth, School,Work, Death". (Which is not on this album).

But, because of that one song, I thought it would be worth the buck to take a flyer out on this record. And, man did that ever pay off! This album rules.

I'm trying to think who would be a good comparison for those of you who aren't familiar with them. Maybe a heavier Jesus & Mary Chain? I dunno, I'm bad at comparisons. It's just damn good late 80's British rock n' roll that I'm discovering 20+ years later. Better late than never, right?

Man, why didn't these guys rule the world? Every song on this record kicks ass and I plan on listening to it a lot. Really dig the tune "Walking Talking Johnny Cash Blues".

Well hell, now I have to go find the rest of their catalog on vinyl. This stuff is so good, I may be wiling to buy it on CD if that's all I can find. Ok, maybe that's a stretch.

Thank you .99 cent impulse buy at Waterloo Records!
