Vintage Vinyl

This record dynamites the moss-covered castle walls of 2005's BLACK SHEEP BOY to let in the glaring sun. Riddled with characters real and fake, with the relics of high culture and the crumpled up trash of low culture, THE STAGE NAME is a cinemascopic take on the meaning of entertainment in the modern world. Reverberant with echoes of Motown snap and girl group pop, redolent with ripe whiffs of dirty rock'n'roll, shining with the shimmy of Bo Diddley, with the shimmer of the Velvets, with the swagger of the Faces, and with a glittery sprinkling of cheap perfume to disguise the stink, THE STAGE NAMES is a relentlessly paced and ruthlessly thrilling journey.
