So here we are – Episode 14: The Best of Year One. Last year at this time I was plotting out episodes, collecting songs, mapping out authors and texts. My goal was simple: Bring attention to my favorite books using my favorite bands. With the help of the lovely
Miss Hannah T Mrs. Hannah C., Steve Smith, Mr. A the Barber, Kopper over at Garage Punk Hideout, and you, this past year has been more than I hoped for.
This has always been a project for fun and enjoyment. I don’t make a dime, and considering the time that goes into this, I am operating at a huge financial loss; but who the hell cares? I figure I’m fighting against society’s current on intelligence.
This year will see podcasts for James Ellroy, Max Allan Collins, Christ Faust (pt. 2), Karen Russell’s Swamplandia!, Patrick Dewitt’s The Sisters Brothers, and other TBD.
Thank you for listening.

Bibliodiscoteque Episode 14 – Year One!

This past week I came across Grabaciones de Impacto records. Since times and money are tight, I only grabbed two of their releases (and not the luxury collector jewels that the bands offer).
This was a poor judgement in consumerism . These bands are both powerful and brilliant enough to stand on its own, but for the same price I could be holding a limited edition article of future music history. Next time I wait out the shipping and support pure artistry.
I hope the best for Grabaciones de Impacto mainly because I admire their honesty and care for the total package. The label offers their releases on bandcamp and iTunes that certainly enables the listeners to pick it up and go. For those who want to relax and savor a tangible product Grabaciones de Impacto’s website promises each LP or EP will be ‘a reference for music collectors’ featuring limited editions, colored vinyl, and flyers from some amazing bands. So to those who complain about limited editions vanishing and never hearing the tracks on them the problem is resolved and the ban wins.
If you have not heard of Grabaciones de Impacto yet, you can hear most of the tracks on the individual bands’ bandcamp sites or visit their site which has a list of the most popular selling albums. If these two are #7 and #3, respectively then this label wields an impressive amount of talent and deserves your attention.
The Toot Toot Toots – Curse the Crow
“First day of school / I was singled out / as a bad muthafucka / who couldn’t count.” Toot Toot Toots know me. No, I don’t mean the born in January, back of a Chevy, with an inability to do math. I mean gravel voice, horns, rough edges which add to the overall smoothness of the sound, and birds.
The Toot Toot Toots will draw immediate vocal resemblance to Tom Waits and Nick Cave, but where those guys are a voice with music behind them, The Toot Toot Toots are a band with a voice standing next to them. There is an American West vibrato to the guitars and drums with the horns and backup singers providing pushes and kicks at just the right moment to add tension and relief. This doesn’t sound like a group effort it is a group effort.
After several listens I’m hard pressed to find a favorite track. Each on not only builds upon the preceding one but stands strong as an individual. Typically I don’t have any patience for a nine-minute song, but “Oh! Maggie” one holds me and keeps me held with its variations and progressions. For those, like me, with three-minute attention-spans, the stand-outs are “Curses”, “Rooster Crow”, and “That’s My Boy.”
The Allnight Workers - This Only Happens Once
Not to be confused with the 60’s Garage Band, this band swings and swings hard.
If you’re the type to read crime fiction, think any non-amber drink is for wimps, and invest in venetian blinds as moody décor, you should stop reading now and buy this.
This band makes me want to make love to a dame, rip the filters off cigarettes, and walk around town holding a gut shot. Just not at the same time. Its raunchy and raw and screams for nighttime listening. There is no throwback to this retro sound. This is what would have occurred if the 60’s never happened.
This is music for the noir set. Just don’t leave your hat on the bed.
