Burnt Offerings 28

First up this week are The Rosy Nolan Band with a track from their self released 2006 album Phantom Hymns. 
Obscure Sounds describe them as following in the footsteps of fellow Southern influenced revivalists Neko Case and Jenny Lewis
Can't really see it myself
She still seems to be playing in the Los Angeles area but I don't see any evidence of a second album

The Rosy Nolan Band - Nobody's Fool

On the basis of their pictures  if nothing else the Melvins were getting in whether they were good or not.As it turns out their cover of Candy O by the Cars is short but pretty good fun.Doom metal (whatever that is) merchants from Montesano, Wshington The boy with the hair is Buzz Osborne

Melvins - Candy O

I'm quite surprised that Andrew Bird has never appeared before. He has certainly popped up on other BO discs but has obviously been trumped by other artists.
Anyone who has been in bands called Squirrel Nut Zippers and Bowl of Fire is surely worth a mention.
He has churned out 13 albums over the last 20 years initially as part of the above bands and as a solo artist from 2003 onwards. Heretics is from his 2007 album Armchair Apocrypha

Andrew Bird - Heretics

More assorted nonsense next week - we're nearly there!


  1. I have an Andrew Bird album - Fake Palindromes.

  2. Kudos for the Melvins. New album out too.

    1. Totally agree. The Melvins are sort of like America's NW version of The Fall, or something.

  3. 'Armchair Apocrypha' is one of a couple of Andrew Bird albums in this house. Hearing 'Heretics' again and enjoying it as much as I did, tells me those albums are long overdue for a spin.

  4. Yep, the Melvins are an institution, at least in these parts. Mrs. LTL is a fan of Andrew Bird. Have heard much by osmosis.
