Frumpzilla's classic jam of the week features Tommy Bolin
Typically we reserve our classic jams feature for stuff pre-1990. However, given the loss of Mark Linkous over the weekend, today we’re gonna make an exception. Linkous, probably most readily known for his work as Sparklehorse, apparently committed suicide outside a friend’s home in Tennessee on Saturday (shot himself in the heart). Sad day, and a shame he won’t get to see the official release of Dark Night of the Soul, which, after a highly publicized bout of legal problems, is finally supposed to hit the market this year.
As a memorial, here’s three cuts from Linkous as Sparklehorse, including two from the Dark Night of the Soul album (featuring Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys and The Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne, respectively). Rest in peace.
Since the GingerHeadMan let us all down by neglecting to do this Wednesday Jam, the Admiral is here to save the week.
The upcoming album by Broken Bells is the side project of James Mercer(The Shins) with Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, The Grey Album).
The record isn’t out yet, but it has leaked all over the intertronz and should not be hard to find for those who know how to work Google the way it was meant to be worked.
If you’re old school and want to actually only listen to it AFTER you buy it, then you’ll have to wait until March 9th, 2010. With a leak occurring this far in advance, though, I’m going to guess that release date is pushed upped drastically.
For now, listen and enjoy…and make the jump for another Broken Bells cut.
