Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Dim Stars

UPDATE: This post was re-uploaded 08/23/2013. Enjoy, NØ.

Dim Stars were basically a punkstars collaborative project from the early 90s between downtown NYC legends: Richard Hell & Robert Quine of the Voidoids; Thurston Moore & Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth; & Don Flemming of 1/2 Japanese & Gumball.

They released three singles & this one full length lp.

Dim Stars not only marked Hell’s first album of new material after an 8 year retirement from music, but also what has so far been the last bit of new music he has released (Hell recently released Destiny Street Repaired, a re-edited of Destiny Street).

Dim Stars - Dim Stars, Paperhouse Records paplp 014 (UK), 1992.

  1. thanks, hey! classify this as forgot-all-about-this-record.

  2. Brian,
    yes many have forgotten but few have disliked.

  3. She wants to die. It a great song. Remind me Morrissey with balls. Great LP. I didn't know that you're Jodorwsky fan. I like him too. He has a lot of comics and books too.

    Cheers man Great to received comments from you. I'm glad you like Erlend Oye. Stunning creator

  4. Awesome! I am a big Richard Hell and The Voidoids fan and have not listened to this before. DL'ing it now. I have added you guys to my Blog and if you would like to do the same that would be cool. Nathan????

  5. I'm almost terrified that your reminder regards this fantastic LP blows me out of my current dub groove.

    I heard Dim stars first on John Peel and forgot about them for years. I've got a copy of this but I'm damned if I can recall which song it was which blew me away in the first place.

    It may have been a session recording, but I don't think so. Rarified and crushing.

  6. I really like when people are expressing their opinion and thought. So I like the way you are writing

  7. I'm looking forward to getting more information about this topic, don't worry about negative opinions.
