Vinyl Finds from the WOBC Vault

Every week, vinyl workgroup dives into the deepest depths of the labyrinthine world of WOBC’s vinyl vault. The collection, stretching back to the 60s, is of a rare kind – it doesn’t just have the hits and the classics, it has the albums singles companies wanted to be hits, the double albums they wanted to be classics, the strange compilations, the complete musical failures that quickly went into obscurity, the undiscovered gems that never saw much light. Here are some particular interesting ones we picked out – and DJs, if you want to play these on your show, you can find them on the “best of vinyl” shelf in the public affairs room.

“Daydreamers” by Nelories, off of Daisy (1994, Sugarfrost) | Japanese alt-indie-ACCORDION-pop duo from the 90s. Weren’t expecting that part, were you.

“Elephant Stone (7″ Single Version)” by the Stone Roses (1988, Silvertone) | An acid indie rock jam.

“Holotelani” by Nelcy Sedibe off of The Indestructible Beat of Soweto (1985, Shanachie Records) | An important compilation from the 80s of a wide variety of South African artists – never disappoints!

Soul to Soul (1971, Atlantic) | Soundtrack from a film of a 1971 concert in Ghana of American soul, R&B, and rock musicians – Wilson Pickett, Ike & Tina Turner, Santana, Roberta Flack, The Staples Singers and more.

Who is Hunx + His Punx?

HXS2

 

Hunx + His Punx & Shannon + The Clams

The ‘Sco

11/26/13

10 PM

$5 OC ID/ $15 W.O

Hunx + His Punx is a rush of warped 60′s girl-group harmonies, explicit + tasty lyrics directed towards the glammest, hippest qts + a major disregard for anyone without a certain careless attitude. Seth Bogert + Shannon Shaw (Shannon and the Clams) created the group, and together, they create some weirdly nostalgic, party-ready anthems. Words that can be associated with HahP include: teenage meltdown, tight spandex booty shorts, seven minutes in heaven, mischief night, TP-ing your math teacher’s house, eating a bunch of frosted cupcakes, wearing glitter eyeshadow, stealing your parents’s holiday rum, etc. Here is an excerpt from an interview with Bogert:

REAXI read an article where you made out with a bunch of people in the front row of the audience and you got strep-throat.
HUNX: Oh my god I did.

You heard it here first: you could maybe make out with the hotties in Hunx + His Punx if you come to the show tomorrow night at the ‘Sco!

STAGNANT POOLS — TONIGHT @ THE SCO WITH CYMBALS EAT GUITARS

StagnantPools2

CONCERT ALERT!

Cymbals Eat Guitars + Stagnant Pools 

10 pm

The ‘Sco

$3 OC ID / $8 WO

We’ve all heard of Cymbals Eat Guitars, but what about Stagnant Pools? DJ Alex has the “inside scoop”:

hqdefault

Stagnant Pools are one of those bands I found through another band that I found through another band on Facebook. This was a few years ago, at the height of my My Bloody Valentine phase, and not long after my brother and I started our two-piece band, The Gentlemen Broncos. So of course I was excited by two people playing something like shoegaze. The song “Consistency” really struck a cord with me. The swirling distortion was everything I loved about shoegaze, and proof that two people could make that sound. Plus the opening line (“This i the last place that I want to be…”) is dramatic in all the right ways. My brother and I never actually wrote any shoegaze, but this song is still super groovy. What a tune from some fellow dudes trying to make it.
