Alright guys, I think we owe you for a couple days worth of band-talk [Seeing as how we didn’t post one on Tuesday, Thursday, or yesterday] So we’re gonna hit you with three today [an oldie and two new ones] Then we’ll be square, right? Cool. I’m glad we’re at that point now where we might screw up here and there but you guys don’t give us backlash for it because you know we’re good for it. Anyways…
First up for you, is Circuit Rider. This band may be more of a myth than anything else. Their only LP came out in 1980 [Some say it came out in 1971 though] and some will tell you that Jim Morrison is the man behind the mic on this [We don’t really believe that either, but you never know] Oh, and it was apparently on a list of “Top Ten Records a Serial Killer Would Own”. Myths and rumors aside, this band is awesome. Chuggy psychadelic, meth and acid inspired, motorpsychle rock and roll. I think we just invented a new genre: motorpsychle. It’s like if The Doors and Skynyrd got together and formed a motorcycle gang and went on one big crazy acid trip. Seriously, it’s amazing. The record was originally pretty hard to find. But it got reissue treatment not too long ago and it’s apparently pretty easy to get your hands on these days. Get it!
Circuit Rider – Just For Today
Two philly-bebes just havin’ a good time. Reading Rainbow have put out a couple of releases this year [including a split 7″ with Eternal Summers and full-length on SMK Records] And they’re great. They’ve got another release slated for later this month with Zoo Music [who just keep climbing our ladder of current favorite labels] and a 7″ after that with Hell Yes! Most of their stuff is kind of space-y, poppy, fun times with a little fuzz thrown in for flavor. You know how Robbie and Sarah like it. Anyways, check out their stuff and pick up some goodies here.

Mayyors doesn’t have a myspace. Mayyors’ releases sell out within hours of the time they’re released. Mayyors are the primetime. They’re first 7″ was label-less, had no cover, no tracklist…. [there’s one available on eBay right now, here] If you’ve got a crush on things that sound like an In The Red record on meth in a crashing car, then you’ll probably be as hooked as we are. We’ve never been graced with the opportunity of seeing Mayyors [yet] but from what we’ve youtubed and heard, it sounds like a riot. Check out “Clicks” below.
Curcuit rider is the jam. I’m gon’ go cop that ish soon as i get my ass paid. that track rocks circles around Mayyors.
