Having recently decided that I am now too old to continue wearing ratty, camouflage-pattered shorts all summer, I can' t help wondering how much longer my taste for utterly fried sounds--the type pedaled by Scott Soriano, for example--have on my docket. Observe here, courtesy of his recently-hatched page on Soundcloud, the battered, shrunken-head glory of Charles Albright. (Originally from the invitingly-titled I'm On Drugs single.)
Tempted? Well, the record's probably already out of print and maybe even fetching stupid money on eBay. Better to save your dough and travel west next month for the S.S. label's 10th anniversary blowout weekend in San Francisco. Scheduled performers include Albright, The Hank IV, A-Frames, and freakin' NAR, for cryin' out loud! (Hey You Kids fans, can I get an amen for Nar? Definitely an iconic band from my WPRB era that slipped through the cracks. So glad to see them being rightly exalted on their home turf!)
