On This Day..
1958 The Quarrymen, featuring John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John “Duff” Lowe on piano and Colin Hanton on drums, recorded a vanity disc at a small studio in an electronics shop owned by a man named Percy Phillips. The band recorded ‘That’ll Be The Day’ and ‘In Spite Of Danger’ in one take each. With the names of the tunes and the song’s writers hand written on the label, each band member was to keep the 10-inch 78 rpm disc for a week before passing it on. Both recordings eventually ended up on Anthology 1.
1967 David Bowie released the single ‘Love You Till Tuesday’ which failed to reach the charts. Bowie’s 1969 showpiece film Love You till Tuesday took its name from the song, which also featured over the opening credits.
1973 During a concert at the John Wayne Theatre in Hollywood, California, Phil Everly smashed his guitar and stormed of stage, Don finished the set by himself and announced that The Everly Brothers had split. This was the last that the duo performed together for nearly ten years.
1982 The movie premiere for Pink Floyd’s The Wall was held at The Empire, Leicester Square, London, England. The film which centers around a confined rocker named Floyd “Pink” Pinkerton earned $22 million in its first year and won two British Academy Awards.
Brand New Music
Waxahatchee | Out In The Storm
Taking yet another large leap forward, Out of the Storm is Crutchfield’s strongest work. Breaking new sonic ground while continually hitting hard lyrically and vocally, Waxahatchee is quickly becoming one of indie rock’s finest songwriters.
Sheer Mag | Need to Feel Your Love
Sheer Mag gives you a little bit of everything – pub rock, punk, funk, blues, 80’s indie – and creates something, not cluttered, but completely and utterly fun. A socially conscious record, Need To Feel Your Love is exactly the debut LP fans wanted from Sheer Mag. And not to mention, it might be one of the best overall LP’s of 2017 so far.
