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.

Joyous Samhain

This album from Perth, Australia native Abbe May was knocked out in five days with members of Kill Devil Hills, The Lazy Railway & Abbe’s regular band The Rockin' Pneumonia. It is brimming with spectral sexual energy, perfect for knocking up a chilly Samhain eve.

Her MySpace page says: “Five days, four musicians, three chords, too many bottles of spliff wine & one Willie Dixon song.”

Abbe isn’t worried about evangelical threats of calling Satan into her life by using his name; she’s willing to play with the Big Boy if He’s willing to play with her. Well, are you, Natas, are you?

The Devil & Abbe May - Hoodoo You Do, Independent, 2009.

  1. Been listening to this over at their Myapce. It's really good, especially "Hoodoo you do"

    Gonna buy me a copy.

    Some of it reminds me of a female Tom Waits - nothing wrong with that.

  2. Gary,
    Thanks for the comment.
    I've been listening to this regularly since I bought it a few months ago. 'female Tom Waits' indeed. Tasty stuff.
    Miss your blog a lot & all the great Brit stuff I missed out on as a Yank. Best to you, my friend.
