FROM THE VAULT: The Nonce – Roadie For The Kinks 45”

From the Vault will be a reoccurring feature here on the WOBC blog where fearless DJs plunge into the depths of the station vaults to bring you the freshest stuff gone stale! In addition to a massive vinyl collection, we’re also sitting on hundreds and hundreds of 45s, lots of which are super rad and super rare. We’ll be posting cuts from these recordings for your enjoyment, so let us know what you think!

It’s been a while since we posted any cuts from the archives, but want no longer! Here’s a 45” from an old Oakland area band The Nonce (feat. Rookie Phenom). This got pulled on the merits of its title and turned out to be pretty awesome. The A side, “Roadie For The Kinks” is a fun homage to Davies, Davies & Co. (the sleeve also bears the plea: HELP PUT THE KINKS IN THE ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME! call 415-648-9405) but the real winner is the B side, “Sometimes I Wonder.”

  1. Randomly searching this because it isn’t listed at discogs, I found this post. I have a whole album on Rear View Recordings. 13 songs. Light Side has “Roadie For The Kinks” “Malibu Girl” “Sometimes i Wonder” “Buddy Holly Sunglasses” “Where Singles Meet” Murphy’s Law” the Dark Side has “Better Off Dead” “Take Back The World” “Pit Bull Charlie” “Garden Of The Guitar Godz” “I Just Let Go” “St Valentines Day–Agnews” It’s going to the top of the listen to pile.
