(jump to 11PM-Finger Lickin’ Fridays)

7PM TONIGHT ($10):

  • Paul Collins Beat:  Paul Collins started The Nerves in 1974, a band whose single “Hanging On The Telephone” was made famous by Blondie.  He formed The Beat in 1977, which eventually became known as The Paul Collins Beat.  After touring with The English Beat, The Jam, Huey Lewis and other luminaries, Paul Collins took a break to pursue a solo career in the 1990s.  More recently the Paul Collins Beat reformed with a new line up, released Flying High and is now on tour.   Listen here.
  • The Bamboo Kids:  “The Bamboo Kids are an American rock and roll trio formed in Brooklyn, New York City (New York, U.S.), first signed to Norwegian label Big Dipper Records in 2003 and now Brooklyn, NY label Drug Front Records.  The influences include The Clash (the band name is taken from a line in the Clash song “Straight to Hell”), The Damned and The Heartbreakers.”  Listen here.
  • The Recordettes: “As the Recordettes (they get a gazillion points for their cool name) took the stage, the crowd gathered around them in a unifying semi-circle.   For over a half hour the trio enlightened us with some of the coolest garage-rockingest originals and covers this side of the Bo Diddley — and Bo Knows!  The trio bashed, slammed, and otherwise contoured themselves into a primed, well-oiled rock ‘n’ roll machine as the crowd got amped up right along with them!” Listen here.
  • M.O.T.O., from their Wikipedia page:  ”Masters of the Obvious (more commonly known as M.O.T.O. or MOTO), is a New Orleans-based garage punk band. Formed in 1981 by Paul Caporino, the lineup of the band has seen many changes over the years, with Caporino being the only consistent member. The band has recorded many albums, singles and CDs, including several albums for the Chicago-based record label Criminal IQ Records.”  Listen here.
