Brothers and Sisters, check out those various goodies from  MAIN MAN RECORDS

1) ACID:  An exquisitely crafted collection of guitar driven gems filled with pop hooks. Think SUPERDRAG or TEENAGE FANCLUB

2) FRANKENSTEIN 3000,  Allerton Avenue. After a year that saw them sharing the stage with such legends as David Johansen , Glen Matlock, Billy Rath , Urge Overkill and The Waldos, Frankenstein 3000 recorded Allerton Avenue quicker and took more chances than any previous album. Back up singers (on "Another Way"), horns (on "Coming Down (Mint Memo)") and a psychedlic experiment (a cover of Love's "The Red Telephone") all come together to make the most adventurous yet most cohesive Frankenstein 3000 album to date.

3) PLATINUM LOAD, Life is pretty heavy...can you handle the load: Our favorite postman, TOM JORGENSEN, formely bass player/screamer for the Swinging Neckbreakers is back with the ultimate rock'n'roll band. Plenty of great stuff here. Just listen to Lonely Housewife Mailman BluesBad Woman or Suburban Home to be convinced this is goin' to be your next purchase.

The Spongetones - Torn Apart + 5 Bonus Tracks (Japanese Import)

The Spongetones - Torn Apart
In Flac - Scans are included
1 Have You Ever Been Torn Apart? -

3 (My Girl) Maryanne -
4 Shock Therapy -

  Not So (live)   My Girl Maryanne (live)   Have You Ever Been Torn Apart? ( live)

The Spongetones, formed in 1979, are a power pop band from Charlotte, North Carolina. They formed from a desire to play Beatles and other 60's music they grew up with.Very much influenced by the British Invasion, the Spongetones carried on the musical genre through acclaimed original songwriting, jangle pop riffs, and lilting vocals of Beatlesque quality. In his 2007 book, Shake Some Action, John M. Borack rated the Beat and Torn album at number 25 of his Top 200 Power Pop Albums of all time, comparing the album to early Beatles and Searchers, calling the album "simply wonderful." Rolling Stone gave Beat and Torn a 3-1/2 star review.This is the VERY overpriced Japanese version!

The Makers - Rock Star God

The Makers - Rock Star God
In flac - Scans are included
   1. Intro (Ladies And Gentlemen)  
   2. Star Power  
   3. Looking For A Supergirl   
   4. A Better Way Down   
   5. God's Playing Favorites   
   6. I'm A Concrete Wall   
   7. Texture Of A Girl

 12. Open Your Eyes  
 13. When We Was Gods  
 14. Someone Else's Song  
 15. Too Many F''kers (On The Streets)  
 16. Outro (Until We Meet Again)  
This is not Garage Rock, it is glam rock at it's finest! "Rock Star God" shows The Makers definitely have the ability to nail a fairly broad range of moods with their music. With Michael Shelley's snarl recalling vintage David Johansen, and the band ripping into a sleazy set that could have been the soundtrack for Rocky Horror II, the album consummates their identity as born-again glam rockers while showing remarkable artistic growth.!download|57|1851935756|Rock Star God.rar|413520

The Blank Tapes - Sun's Too Bright

photo by Karen Knoller

The Blank Tapes is the monicker of Los Angeles / San Francisco based multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Matt Adams, who has produced 9 albums recorded almost entirely by himself on an 8 track cassette tape recorder in garages, basements & sheds across the California coast.  Lately his band has consisted of Pearl Charles, DA Humphrey, & Will Halsey and the four piece recently toured Europe for their second time sharing stages with the likes of Thee Oh Sees and R. Stevie Moore.  While Adams and co. are currently finishing up a new studio album called Vacation (to be released in early 2013), the band recently released this wonderful cassette only release, Sun’s Too Bright, on Fullerton’s Burger Records.
Their music has been described as "a modern take on the sixties San Francisco sound" and indeed, "Sun's Too bright" is an amazing mix of fuzzy garage and psychedelic folk. For those of you who can't live without any name dropping, think Brian Jonestown Massacre meets the Makeoutparty.

In flac - Scans are included
We Repel Each Other (Cartwright) - 3:00 
Your Love Is a Fine Thing (Cartwright) - 2:43 
If You Can't Give Me Everything (Cartwright) - 2:41 
You Got Me Hummin' (Hayes, Porter) - 2:26

Let Yourself Go (Carpet Baggers) - 2:39 
So Easy (Cartwright) - 2:07 
Medication (Cartwright) - 1:23 
Reigning Sound’s third album “Too Much Guitar,”  was released in May 2004 with recording help from fellow Memphians Jay Reatard and Alicja Trout from the Lost Sounds; with a noticeably louder and noisier sound than previous recordings. Songs laced with psych-pop, garage, soul, country and (of course)
too-much guitar compete with Cartwright’s vocals at times in the loud fuzzy mix. An opening slot on a huge American tour with the Swedish garage band The Hives helped to promote the album shortly after its release. A misprint in the album credits gives the impression that founding member Alex Greene appeared on
only one song. In fact, he played on half the album: "You Got Me Hummin'", "When You Touch Me," "Get It," "Drowning," "Uptight Tonight," "Let Yourself Go," and "Medication."

The Delta 72 - 000

The Delta 72 - 000
In Flac - covers are 
1. Are You Ready?  
2. The Doctor Is In!  
3. Just Another Let Down  
4. 3 Day Packet Plan  
5. Incident @ 23rd  
6. I Feel Fine  
7. Ten Lbs.  
8. Hip Coat  
9. Great Paper Chase No.1  
10. Sun The Secret Prince  
The Delta 72 has played around with their sound from their inception during the mid 90's. Soul, punk, R & B, and jazzy instrumentals have all had a spot in the D72 sound, but with 000, they seem to have grooved their sound into one cohesive ROCK and ROLL machine. And this machine kicks it. Comparisons have come up to the Rolling Stones (of the 70's). Their most solid recording, 000 is filled with Gregg Foreman's slide guitar and funkarific "Wooh"s and "Yeah, yeah"s, Mark Boyce's keys and the driving beats of Jason Kourkonis's kit and Bruce Reckahn's bass. A couple of tunes feature gospel backup that work very well with the driving music. A few instrumentals are also on the record in keeping with the D72 playlist. An awesome record from a band that should have deserved more recognition. 72_ The.rar

The Young Fresh Fellows may not have accrued a lot of fans over the course of their two-decades-plus existence, but the select few who’ve been won over by the downright lovable Seattle combo are true devotees. Judging by the participants in this 21-song tribute to on-again, off-again outfit, more than a few of their fans are musicians who appreciate the tunefulness, and genial spirit and humor of the heart, hail Fellows. Reaching all the way back to the YFF’s 1984 debut for Frontier Records, The Fabulous Sounds of the Pacific Northwest, executive producers Pete Hilgendorf and Ben Heege draw from the band’s proto-alt contemporaries (Robyn Hitchcock, the Silos, Charlie Chesterman) and newer faces (Visqueen, I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch in the House, Mendoza Line). Four of the five Fellows turn up here and there, paying themselves tribute, it seems. Ah, well, they’ve earned it. This One’s for the Fellows is a delight on its own terms, but one hopes it channels a few new Fellows travelers toward the band’s still-active and ever-entertaining catalog. --Steven Stolder

This one goes out to CURTY RAY without whom all this would not have been possible! I whish you a fast recovery.
