Double Initials SS
It took me a wee while to come up with an image not associated with the Nazis.
As usual there were lots of great suggestions as to what should be included under SS and that is even without Rol's usual lengthy list.
There are enough good acts to merit a separate series - something to ponder on next time I'm stuck.
However as I 'm just back from holiday I haven't had time to do all your suggestions justice. Also it is very hot and I am being driven demented by the squirrel (s) trapped in the Muso Room's roofspace so I hope you will forgive me if I go with four of my own this week which as far as I can see none of you suggested.
First up is Scouse twee trio Stealing Sheep with a song from their album Into the Diamond Sun. One I've had for ages (although I couldn't have told you the title) and have probably only played a couple of times so I'm grateful for the opportunity for another rare listen.
I'm quite surprised that no-one suggested Bloodshot favourites Sarah Shook and the Disarmers . Here is one from the Bloodshot 18 Sampler which you should all have on your shelves.
Then we have The Sweetback Sisters a Brooklyn band who model there songs on Nashville Country from the 50's . You are getting the title track from their 2011 album Looking For a Fight on the Signature Sound Recording label.
Finally,one for the bloody squirrels!
TT should also be relatively easy and I am anticipating the usual number of interesting suggestions
Stealing Sheep - White Lies
Sarah Shook & the Disarmers - New Ways to Fail
Sweetback Sisters - Looking For a Fight
The Scottsville Squirrel Barkers -Home Sweet Home
