JERUSALEM AND THE STARBASKETS

Room 8 b/w Swingin' Vine

(Destijl - IND078) 7-inch $6.50 (Out-of-stock)

This duo (sometimes augmented) plays unfashionable, unpretentious and completely devastating pop music, though there is scant evidence -- a handful of impossibly rare cassettes and a split LP with Skarkraou Radio, and The Howling LP (Radio Fonico). With a vibe that sounds like the third Velvet Underground LP played by The Terminals, a righteous guitar tone any stoner rock Chud would envy, and catchy, infectious tunes (with a recent emphasis on country melodies) that will stay in your head for weeks.
