two new reviews in UGLY THINGS #27

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 8:32 pm

I just turned in two 300-word reviews (all I had time to do this issue) for the upcoming UGLY THINGS magazine #27:

GENE VINCENT, A MILLION SHADES OF BLUE (Rev-Ola UK), which is a reissue of Gene’s final two albums, originally on the Kama Sutra label, released in 1970 and 1971, the first of which finds him backed by members of San Antonio’s own Sir Douglas Quintet!   …and

V.A., CRASH OF THUNDER: BOSS SOUL, FUNK, and R&B SIDES FROM THE KING, FEDERAL, and DeLUXE LABELS (Vampi-Soul, Spain), which is a 20-track compilation of obscure 45’s from the late 60’s issued on Cincinnati’s King family of labels, mostly from Southern and Midwestern artists with local fan-bases who got their one big break to have a record released on a national label. Some artists such as Marie Queenie Lyons, Charles Spurling, and Mickey Murray have become cult artists among soul fanatics; others such as The Swinging Seven, The Presidents, and Lord Thunder are relatively unknown.

UGLY THINGS is the definitive magazine devoted to 60s beat/punk/psychedelia and beyond, and it has been for 25 years. I’ve been working with editor Mike Stax on various projects since the 1980s. Check it out at . I’m guessing that issue #27 will be out in the early Fall.
