Philly Style #2 & #3


Speaking of Schooly-D, his producer, Joe "The Butcher" Nicolo was at the helm for this 1989 slab of early Philly alt-rock. Electric Love Muffin was one of the first "local" bands I heard that sounded for real; they also fit right into my Dinosaur/Husker Du/Replacements aesthetic of the day. This is taken from the album "Rassafranna" and I tell you straight mister - this whole record is a gem.

Electric Love Muffin - Late Nights, Early Mornings

This is a track from the never released "Girl's High" album by The Joey Sweeney. I played drums on this album and this tune, if I recall correctly, was a favorite of Kurtis of Rambis Manor. Recorded in 1996 by Adam Lasus (who just did Clap Your Hands Say Yeah!) at Philly's Cycle Sound, this was a big, sprawling over-produced album stuffed with great songs. This is a soulful one featuring some sadly out of tune horns. Weed is evil, kids!

    More Girl's High, please! My cassette dub was unsalvagably melted in the car back in the nizzineties.

    Touché. 2 of my favorite jams from Philly days of yore in one post. The die is cast. The gauntlet has been thrown down. The rittenhouse is squared. It is on like Ron ...Joseph.

    hang on there Jerry, we're not talking about a sludgy console...there's a festival of overdubs having a party all over this album. However, I look forward to this DAT and the magic that it will bring.
