Madrid glam band Furies plays well with one-offs like NYC The Rudies, LA DIAMONDS, England Michael Parrett, and not quite one-offs LA E. Coli, SF House Of Pants, Scotland The Valves and Belgium The Strings. These artists find accompaniment in prolific Wild Billy Childish & CTMF, Velvet Crush, The DB’s and Generation X, with several other treats mixed in for good measure.

All Boston show, by no means exhaustive or period-specific, just a quick grab of Boston artists I wanted to hear today! I draw special attention to the I Love You track. That was a side project of Paul from the 90s band Pie, which is really great, The 2×4’s (pre-Turbines John Hovorka), Sperm Bank Babies (Willy Alexander) and Black Cat Bone (Jeri Rossi).
