Bosley’s second album, Honey Pig, just came out not too long ago. It’s a bit hit or miss but mostly hit. This is a retro soul vibe that certainly is earnest.
See all the people in the picture? Remember them in a few posts.
Here’s the entire album.
Yesterday’s post on Shor Patrol shows the past but today’s post is on the present and one of my absolute favorite bands at the moment, J Roddy Walston and the Business. They were originally from Tennessee before moving to Baltimore a few years ago. Last years self-titled album is on constant rotation.
They are the type of band who leave it all on the stage with every song. High energy, honest rock that stomps and jumps and shouts. The way it was meant to be.
One of my earliest childhood memories is seeing Paper Cup play a 98 Rock sponsored free show at a mall in Baltimore County, possibly Golden Ring Mall.
Alana Shor joined Paper Cup and they eventually changed their name Shor Patrol and released an EP on Arista in 1983.
Here’s a 2008 Baltimore Sun article “Whatever Happened to Alana Shor“.
Here is one of the songs off of the EP called “Heart Full of Soul”.
I’m a long time fan of local musicians and bands but I’m no historian. So I think I’m going to start off highlighting some locals past and present. One a day until I feel like stopping. Hope folks find some good music.
Any local bands in your area that you love?
I will be using this space for my misc. thoughts; things I find that are interesting; music I like, things like that.
In other words very much random stuff.
Articles, reviews, columns and things like that will still be posted over at Spinetingler or other places if they will have me. This space isn’t for that.
I love Twitter but it doesn’t work well as a place holder or a book mark to remember something because it’s not easily searchable and older stuff can be hard to pull up. I’ll link this up with Twitter at some point.
