The above audio clip recently arrived in the EVG inbox... featuring a new track called "CBGB" by Phony Express.
And just who is this mystery band? They are local, and here is some background...
"Phony Express is what happens when artists, writers and musicians, who'd normally be making shows live at La MaMa and in our neighborhood watering holes, decide to use our own devices. We've formed an anonymous band inspired by EV Grieve — anonymous, so that listeners may focus on the music itself, not what they find online about the persons performing it; local, sparked by our neighborhood's unique legacy, free and fun. 'CBGB' is the band's debut. No website. Our plan is to collaborate by phone, making music quickly (Phony Express) and upload to Phony Express's YouTube channel."
And EVG will post the new tracks as they become available...
This is great!
Hey, Phony Express - BRAV-FUCKING-O!!!
Well the precursor to all those bands at CBs was the NY Dolls ( the back cover of their 1st album has them posing in drag in front of the Gem Spa on St Marks Pl, 1973) and sadly to report one of it's founding members, the great guitarist Sylvain Sylvain, passed away yesterday.
Rock over London. Rock on Chicago
Love this (don't go in the bathroom, lol), made us want to listen to the dic's:
