Here’s the link for last night’s Two For Tennis Show. Highlights include interviewing a dog, a hare krishna and a 5 year old who’d stolen a balloon….
We get sent a lot of demos here at Tummy Touch HQ and I thought it might be fun to share some with you. Welcome to the debut of Tim Love Lee’s Juke Box Jury Here’s the first one and it’s from NYC band Nova Social. I think it’s a hot and pulsating Eurotic storm trooper of a song but I’d love to know what you think so complete the poll at the end and leave some comments why don’t you….
David, the singer in the band, came by the Two For Tennis Show a few weeks back and is a very very nice man so please be nice about his music. I mean, how can you not love a song about becoming a nun ??? If you dig it there are loads of songs to download on their web site
I’ve been trying to stop myself from posting this all week but it’s so dammed good I’m just going to have to. Jack White was handing out a few 7″s while I was spinning at The Gramercy on Monday and some drunken punter left their copy on the floor at the end of the night so here it is. Seems that DJs care a little more about records than models do. Maybe Jack should remember that next time he’s making free and easy with the promos….
Remember – this is a low quality recording. You really need to buy the single or go see the band playing live to hear this the way it’s meant to be heard. You can also buy this on iTunes if you’re super geeky.
We had Jack White and Nick Cage in on Monday night at The Gramercy Park Hotel this week. When I dropped this new track from Turner Cody a definite “I fully endorse this artist and urge you all to go buy his records” kind of expression came over one or both of their faces. I’m sure of it.
I still can’t quite believe this happened but listen to this week’s Two For Tennis show and you’ll hear me interviewing DJ Kool Herc, credited by many as inventing Hip Hop. He was in the hood handing out flyers for his party and just dropped by the station. Blimey.
You gotta love Gary Byrd in this video clip too.

“Ladies and Germs -
I’m back again with a new show and new tunes to tickle your ears! I went out and paid 30 GBP for the Opal cd – Happy Nightmare Baby, released on SSt records in 1987, it was never repressed and not on itunes, but worth well the money!!! Just immerse yourselves in the psyche beauty of their track – Magick Power!!! Gary Glitter, how ever evil he may be, sure made killer music with his band, and I think you’ll agree when you hear their cover of Baby Please Don’t Go. I had to play the second track of side one of John Cooper Clarke’s first ep. When you hear his song Innocents you’ll see where Arctic Monkeys got their influence from. Plus another track off my new fave band – Heavy Load’s album – Flashing Lights, not a Screaming Lord Sutch cover, but equally brilliant. Also Brazil’s number one Rock Star ever – Raul Seixas – with Rock Do Diabo. This track is killer and 100% rock and roll!!! And who knew I was his daughters baby sitter???? Plus the best rock song ever in the history of Rock and Roll and the first rock song that got me to want to make music, it was written by Paul Williams of all people!!! And was performed by The River Bottom Nightmare Band!!! If you have seen Jim Henson’s “Emmet Otters Jug Band Xmas”, then you’re already in the know! Think Alice Cooper performed by menacing puppets!!! Plus much much more!!!”
