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.

Bombs for Whitey

Way back in September of 2007, not long after I started this mess, I posted up two songs from some friends of mine in a band called Bombs for Whitey. They were from San Jose & relocated to Lost Angels about the time I sloughed off to Sacko’tomato. While I was digging through my boxes of clutter recently, I unearthed their self-titled release, so without any further ado than to say all song are by Al Langone (guitarist) & Paul Nevins (vocalist) except for the last cut, a live cover by Pop/Williamson, here they are...

Bombs for Whitey - Bombs for Whitey, 1998.

Right Upside Your Head, Sucka!

Been culling through my musick & have been concentrating this last week on bands from my old homestead, San Jose.

Here’s one from San Jose's spastic jazz-improv group Horchata. They got together in 1993 playing informal jam sessions that got out of hand. The core members performed as Sacrilicious before adding horn players & arriving at this line-up: Jim Lopez - vocals; Ona Stewart - vocals & guitar; Jim Carrico - vocals & guitar; Brady Laucher - bass; Dale Means - drums; Reggie Webb - alto saxophone; Jason Walker - tenor saxophone; Rob Lombardi - trumpet; Justin Rivera - trombone; & Steve Delaney - harmonica.

The band musick seems to be about Kung-fu, getting baked, & Horchata drinks. They’re also into " weird solos & transitions," says alto saxophonist Reggie Webb. "Instead of jazz to jazz, we'll go from reggae to swing to ska to punk rock. Then we'll have a harmonica solo instead of a guitar solo."

Recorded live at Third Street Dojo; produced by Papa Hawk; released on Little Lucky.

Horchata - Right Upside Your Head, Little Lucky A01, 1994.
