Record Release Round-Up

The debut album from headbangers Wolves of Eden features guest guitarist Anthony LoCoco of Deeper Purple, “a longtime friend and mentor and the best damn shredder in San Diego,” according to guitarist Jason Getzel. Rough cuts have been appearing on the band’s MySpace page, and Getzel says the final mix will be influenced by listener comments. “We are letting the public in on the process, not waiting until the finished product.” Check out the new cuts when they play Riley’s Road House in Point Loma on Saturday, July 4.

British-born Dave Humphries, who calls himself “the man rejected by Apple Records more than anyone alive,” is finishing the follow-up to his SDMA-nominated ’08 album. “The Beatles and Badfinger are still big influences,” says Humphries, “so almost everything I do sounds like BBC radio circa 1970 or so.” Humphries will debut new songs like “Fallin’ Up to Heaven” when he performs Saturday, August 8, at the North Park Music Thing.

Another U.K. transplant, Mike Stax of the Loons, is known for his obsession with the Pretty Things. His Ugly Things Records label will reissue the Pretty Things/Philippe DeBarge vinyl LP this month, featuring a 1969 collaboration between French playboy DeBarge and the Pretties that was unreleased until Stax put it out last year. Produced by PT’s Wally Waller and Phil May, Stax describes the reissue as “a new limited-edition pressing for those of you who missed out on the first pressing, which sold out almost immediately. It’s identical to the first, except the label is now green instead of orange.”

Taang! Records, which earned its bones recording Boston hardcore bands, has compilation albums planned for late summer featuring the Oysters, Attitude Adjustment, Newtown Neurotics, and Kilslug. “We have around 200 titles now,” says Davit Buck, “and it’s our 25th anniversary, so we’re practically last-man-standing in the indie record biz. Thanks to the current vinyl revival, we now have distribution deals with Fontana Records and a whole bunch of new European outlets.”

Acoustic blues guitarist Joshua Emery Blatchley is finishing an acoustic album recorded with Pall Jenkins, though at this writing he hasn’t booked a release show. “I’m pretty selective about the shows I play,” he says, “but I’m hoping to line up the Ché or Casbah.” Scheduled for “sometime in autumn,” the album will be available as an MP3 and on CD and vinyl.

Local Blindspot Records is preparing to issue its 20/20 tribute album, featuring pop covers by Sven-Erik Seaholm, Marie Haddad, the Spring Collection, and Mark DeCerbo and Four Eyes. The label also plans a collection of acoustic studio demos from mod scooterheads the Shambles, covering 1996 through 2008 and limited to 100 numbered copies signed by the band. “I’m hoping to include some original memorabilia,” says label head and Shambles frontman Bart Mendoza, “like a flyer, a ticket, buttons, and that kind of thing, though the packaging remains a problem to be solved.”

Also on Blindspot will be Anna Troy: Live, a compilation of live tracks from throughout her solo career featuring various venues and band lineups. “It’ll be seamlessly edited and mastered to sound like a single performance over one show,” says Mendoza, “to present an overview of her best tunes and gigs.” The release party is August 6 at Bar Pink.

Goldmine: The Songs of Buddy Blue features music by the late Beat Farmer and music columnist. The July 18 release party at the Spring Valley Inn - site of many early BF gigs - will include the Buddy Blue Reunion Band, Romy Kaye, Sven-Erik Seaholm, Rick Wilkins and the Nards, ButterFace, the Taylor Harvey Band, and the remaining reunited Farmers.
