time we add something new, you'll see a linked guide to it here,
the Stereo Society, you will receive
a monthly newsletter with direct links to everything new and announcements
about fresh downloads etc.
After a working time-out last month (apart from implementing the new Links pages), we’re back with lots of words. Two large articles cover the now little-known band the Shirts, one of the notable seventies CBGB’s bands who, with better luck, might have joined the ranks of Television, Blondie, the Ramones and the Talking Heads. Everyone was interrelated then, linked by the club they all played and hung out in. The Shirts were even managed by club owner Hilly Kristal (an artist in his own right, with his own records on the juke box). The articles, about the background to the making of their first album and their second, Streetlight Shine, are illustrated with many contemporary photographs of the club and the band.
The Shirts, in their original lineup augmented with three further singers and players, will be playing CBGB’s in New York in late June.
of the Shirts’ albums are available on CD. So we've provided
streaming versions on the production commentary pages of nine
of the 22 album tracks so you can hear what the fuss was about.
(For copyright reasons we can’t offer mp3 downloads.)
Regrettably, we now can offer streaming only in RealAudio.
To keep both Real and Liquid available for all sound files
became prohibitively expensive. We continue to offer our own
music for paid Liquid Audio download as well as on CD (and
a few freebies also
in Liquid and mp3 formats).
