Happy New Year

Posted by Paul Superapple @ 10:36 pm


With a new year comes a new release from Disgraceland Records.



John Baker’s “Rough Skeleton” is the latest solo endeavor from the French Broads’ guitarist/songwriter. It’s a romp through guitar madness and sonic experimentation that is well worth adding to your collection.

For an MP3 and other sound samples, visit the Rough Skeleton product page. For a John Baker bio, visit his artist page. Most importantly, to purchase Rough Skeleton, visit our online shop.

John has put together a band, so expect a CD release show at some point over the next month or two.

In the pipeline:

  • The new CD & Website from Angel and the Love Mongers will be available at Disgraceland next month. The album was recorded and produced by Don Coffey Jr. and sounds excellent. You can already hear some of the tracks on West 105.3 FM in Knoxville. Call 777-WEST and request it!
  • Todd Steed is continuing to work on the follow-up to Knoxville Tells. I was fortunate enough to listen to a couple of tracks and it’s sounding very good. Should turn out to be yet another kick-ass Steed must-have.
  • Album night (Friday, March 18 – Preservation Pub) is starting to shape up with the tentative lineup: Todd Steed & the Suns of Phere playing The Ramones’ Rocket to Russia, The Ghosts performing a yet-to-be-named Elvis Presley album, and Nug Jug performing their interpretation of The Who’s Tommy. Go ahead and put it on your calendar. It’s free and you need to be there. Should be drunken madcap fun.
  • Speaking of the Ghosts, they now have a blog. Everybody and their brother seems to be blogging these days. We don’t do politics here at Disgraceland, but the Ghosts sure as hell do. So be forewarned before you visit…
