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.

What an ASS

Just got my copy of Armand Schaubroeck Steals – God Made the Blues to Kill Me! (#248 / 750) 10″ single. The package includes the 10″ single (Side 1 featuring the “Strat mix” of the title song, Side B the "330 mix" of the title song, both 13:11 minutes long) plus a signed CD with the bonus song "Slip Away", a postcard of the famous 'holding switchblade' photo, & a limited edition ASS God Made the Blues guitar pick.

It is the first release from Armand Schaubroeck Steals in over 30 years. The single is a teaser for the upcoming full length LP.

The title song is a thirteen-minute blues opera about a guy going to & returning from Vietnam.

Rev. Norb sez:  
"This is some genius, epic shit…It’s sort of like if …Eugene Chadbourne could have a long, coherent, musical thought, or if the Last Poets were white or if Zoogz Rift got electroshock therapy or something. The ending finds the protagonist opting for 'Needle Park' as opposed to the way of his other contemporaries, who 'eat the shotgun'."

I’m posting up the bonus track "Slip Away" for your listening pleasure. If you like it or already know ASS, then Armand Schaubroeck Steals - God Made The Blues To Kill Me!  10"/CD single ia available for $15.98 plus $6 s/h. Contact ASS at their facebook page or Mirror Records (Armand’s record label he runs out of the basement of his Rochester, NY House of Guitars).
