ArtSnark asked if I was the cool record store guy or the freaky know it all. Tune -in on Friday as more will be written about those wonderful days in the record store…in the meantime, from the summer of 74 – the last summer I worked there prior to college…(complete with copy of Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow in tow…just the height of kewlness don’t you know)
Bloodrock was sort of Grand Funk Jr….Grand Funk pre-American Band days. Both bands shared the garage band blue-collar rock ‘n’ roll approach. Both bands were also being sucked dry by the criminal/producer Terry Knight. Bloodrock garnered most of its attention from a song entitled DOA about the thoughts of a post-plane crash victim. I cut a lot of my drummer’s teeth playing along with Bloodrock 2/Side 2.
Here are two (ha ha)of those songs.
