Rock n roll
Welcome to another edition of Dynamite Rock; this one being on a day we hold close to our hearts, Halloween. I thought I'd bring the spirit of the season with a haunting tale about our favorite creature of the night "Dracula," by the Zane Brothers. It falls somewhere between garage rock and doo-wop, definitely for fans of artists like Roky Erickson. Very little is known about these brethren of the dark, so Happy Haunting, and don't forget to take it with you.

I'm mixing it up today with some straight forward rock n roll. Listening to Tommy Palm's "Black Knee Socks," makes you feel like you're hitting prime time at the sock hop. I don't know who he's singing about, but I'd sure like to meet her.... Don't forget to take it with you.

Mike Page - Long Black Shiny Car
Today I'm leaving you a very rare slice of rockabilly indeed. This amazing track by Mike Page, "Long Black Shiny Car," is some vintage underground from the 60's, but it gained popularity from being a popular number to cover. Mostly known for the 80's version by UK rockabilly revivalists, Restless, a quick stroll around the internet shows that "Long Black Shiny Car," has become a standard for crooners of all kinds. Take it for a spin yourself.

Take a listen to the preview of "Speedbomb", a track that Drop The Lime worked on with NYC based rock n roll band Jail Bait. Jail bait's one of our favorite up and coming bands in NYC right now. Drop The Lime will be in the Klubhaus studio with a number of other NYC bands, all to be released on Trouble & Bass in the upcoming future. Stay tuned.

Joe Penny - Bip A Little, Bop A Lot
You know I couldn't let a Wednesday go by without sharing a bit of rock n roll with all of you. Today's hot number, "Bip A Little, Bop A Lot," comes courtesy of Joe Penny, and is something of a rockabilly standard. Starting out in the swing scene, Joe was swept into the world of country music by none other than Hank Williams himself. It was only after a stint in the navy that Penny began to experiment with more driving beats, and from that period, this 1958 hit was born. Don't forget to take it with you.
