hey all :
sorry its been so long since i have thrown you kids a bone. been super busy. i think i can make it up to you with this new offering.
wow is all i can say. i found this lp about a week ago , never heard of them before nor i have i ever seen this LP to my recollection.
the band is called fringe benefit & the singer / guitar player is named john jones.
there are two covers on this , leonard cohen`s "suzanne" & the elvis`classic "all shook up" , the former being brilliant & while the latter is just ok , imho.
but the rest of the lp is all original with every song a gem. just fantastic stuff..
i wanna say its more power pop than anything but there are not a ton of guitars. they remind of " ian lloyd`s "stories" project from the 70`s , you know ; brother louie !...... :)
so if you dig that , you`ll love this !
as far as i am concerned i found a lost classic , please let me know what YOU think about this one... !
