1993, Brad - Shame, cassette

Cassette Tuesday talks about Brad "Shame"
a side project from Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam.

1993 was the debut cassette of Brad "Shame".
Brad includes Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam
Regan Hagar of Satchel and Malfunkshun
Shawn Smith from Pigeonhed and Satchel
and Jeremy Toback.
I heard some called this a lite version of Pearl Jam.
I guess you can say it's similar to Pearl Jam. It's not like
it's a completely different sound of music.
Two singles came from "Shame" "Buttercup" and "20th Century"
but to be honest I don't remember hearing "20th Century"
but I do like "Buttercup" that I added a youtube link at end of this page.
Brad put out about 5 recordings so far.

1988, Wall Of Voodoo - The Ugly Americans In Australia*, cassette

Cassette Tuesday presents from 1988
Wall Of Voodoo "The Ugly Americans In Australia*"

Original vocalist Stan Ridgway left for a solo career after the bands
biggest hit "Mexican Radio" on 1982 "Call Of The West" album.
Andy's first album w/ Wall Of Voodoo is "Seven Days In Sammystown" 1985.
 "The Ugly Americans In Australia*" is Wall Of Voodoo's third release 
w/ their new vocalist Andy Prieboy. As you see the "*" at the end
of the title means those songs are from Bullhead City, Arizona.
Some of these songs I enjoy the live version such as
"Wrong Way To Hollywood", "Blackboard Sky" that is
my favorite. Andy cover's Ridgway's version of the hit
"Mexican Radio" and Johnny Cash cover "Ring Of Fire
that was done on Wall Of Voodoo's first EP.
Another thing I like on "The Ugly Americans In Australia*"
is the cover art which is done by iconic artist Robert Williams
who also did the original cover that was banned on
Guns N' Roses "Appetite For Destruction" art.

I really enjoyed Andy's vocals as much as Stan's. Although they are
2 different singers this made me appreciate them both as artists.
I still bought Wall Of Voodoo albums as well as Stan Ridgway solo albums.
I did see Stan Ridgway live twice in concert unfortunately never got to see Wall Of Voodoo.

1980, Creem, Girls Girls Girls, Rocks Odd Couples

Girls Girls Girls
Pg 42 - 43

This was a used magazine I bought at a record show.
This issue had a few images cut out of the pages
like the one below.

Now don't think all of these couples were dating. Majority of these
photos were from some party most likely a record label party
and photographers just snapping these people together. Except
that Meatloaf photo was from a concert performance.
