    What CDs did you buy this week?

    Poison - Native Tongue ...my first Goodwill Store score in a couple of months! It ain't much but I'll take it. Hopefully this is a sign that the dry spell is coming to an end.
  2. Coming soon from Stormspell: VISIONS by Carriage Virginia based retro/occult metal band. Fans of Mercyful Fate/King Diamond, check these guys out. "PRIMAL RITUAL" on YouTube: Review @ my blog (shameless plug, shameless plug) https://spinditty.com/genres/Carriage-Visions-Album-Review

  4. Hey Gang: dunno if any of you are familiar with the blogging site "HubPages," but I've recently started a profile on it. I've posted a couple of my CD reviews and over time I'm planning to add much more music, movie and comic-related geeky nonsense. If you wanna check it out, my profile can be found here: http://hubpages.com/profile/FatFreddysCat (Before anybody asks, "FatFreddysCat" is an old alias I used online many moons ago. I eventually lopped off the "Cat" and went with plain ol' "Fat Freddy," but I felt it was time to bring it back. In addition to my stuff there are literally tons of other weird blogs/articles on this site about just about any topic you can possibly think of, so it makes for some interesting (and occasionally hilarious) reading. Supposedly there's some kinda nonsense involving Google AdSense tied into this site where you can supposedly make a few bucks off of your writings (similar to Examiner.com, I guess), but I haven't explored that side of it yet, I just thought it looked like a neat place to post some of my deranged ramblings. Hope you dig it.

    What CDs did you buy this week?

    Church rummage sale pickup: Gryn - Capital Punishment (1995) - a self released disc by a Kansas-based groove/thrash metal band. Given the time period, it sounds pretty much like I expected - local yokels copping the Pantera/C.O.C./Sepultura/Prong vibe. For 50 cents, I'm not gonna complain too much

    New entry! I don't collect vinyl but every time I'm in my local Goodwill scrounging for CDs I always flip through the moldy old LPs just to see what kind of weird sh** will turn up. Here are a half dozen album covers that made me go WTF? https://hubpages.com/entertainment/Weird-Thrift-Store-Record-Finds

    RIP Vinnie Paul of Pantera

    Geez, I was never much more than a casual Pantera fan, but the man could definitely crush those drums and the "Cowboys From Hell" disc is still an essential 90s metal listen. R.I.P. sir.

    Cinderella's Hot Dog commercial

    Bumpin' this classic, because it's Chili Dog season. Pat's Dogs, if it still stands, should be like Graceland for Cinderella fans. All hail Brittingham!

    Stryper - God Damn Evil

    Got my copy of this in yesterday's mail - broke it in during the ride to work this AM. Quickie first spin impression: Me likee. If you dug the last couple of records (I did) then you should like this one as well. Frighteningly enough, I think that mongoloid chorus in "Take It To The Cross" is actually kinda growing on me!!

  23. An interesting goody from Stormspell here, with a bizarre back story fit for an episode of "Unsolved Mysteries." Does this tape look familiar to anyone? If so, maybe you can help Stormspell Records find the "Mystery Band." *(begin shameless plug) in-depth article about the "Mystery Tape" on my blog: https://spinditty.com/genres/Can-You-Help-Identify-Stormspell-Records-Mystery-Band (end shameless plug) Condensed Reader's Digest version of the story: Danny (Stormspell head honcho) found this reel of recording tape at a flea market some years back. The guy he bought it from got it as part of a storage unit auction and had no clue who the band was or where they were from. Aside from the band name "Steel Assassin" (or perhaps "SteevAssassin?") on the front cover, there were no song titles, musician credits or any other details on the package - just an address for a "Haymarket Productions" in San Francisco and a 1986 recording date. Stormy would like to find this band so he can negotiate a full legit release of their material (or at least give them their master tape back) but so far he's had no luck. The address on the box turned out to be a generic apartment building in San Francisco and none of his contacts in the underground are familiar with the tunes. All he's been able to figure out is that this is NOT the Massachusetts based "Steel Assassin" band who have been kicking around since the '80s. Storm eventually decided to press a limited number of CDs featuring the "mystery band" and gave them out as freebies to anyone who ordered $50 or more of merch from his web store during a recent sales blow out, in the hopes that someone out there might recognize the band/songs. If you missed out on that deal, he's got a couple of tracks up for listening on the label Bandcamp page: https://stormspell.bandcamp.com/album/demo-1986 So hey, if you live in the San Francisco area and your oil change guy is always talking about his old band opening for Exodus at Ruthie's Inn back in the day, or your office copy repair man says his old band "shoulda' been huge," you may have the key to solving this mystery, and Stormspell wants to hear from you!!!
