Brian - The I-94 Bar

California Hitch Hike - Iggy Pop (Easy Action)

hitch-hikeHis studio recordings are up and down like a hypoglycaemic's sugar levels but the one place Iggy Pop delivers the goods consistently is the stage. This 1979 taped-for-radio recording from San Francisco in 1979 finds the Pop at the very top of his game with a killer band in attendance.

The Mesmerisers - Mick Medew and The Mesmerisers (Citadel)

mick medew mesmerisersThis is a return to the record store racks (those that are left) for Mick Medew and one that's well overdue. His regular band The Rumours are still a going concern and this was conceived as a solo side project, but grew into a full-blown, plugged-in album with a new band. "The Mesmerisers" is a superbly rounded record.
