Saturday Glam Blogging...

Ciao Tutti!

Here's an obscure glam artifact from American Brett Smiley who obviously had a major Bowie fetish. This was an Andrew Loog Oldham production and it represents his total official recorded output when it was released as a single in 1974. Tragically, it sunk without a trace. Without question, it is a cracking song and it shoulda been a major hit. If you wanna hear more, you can pick up a copy of his unreleased recordings on the definitive RPM CD entitled Breathlessy Brett.

Cheers, and Happy Weekend!

Oldham produced this? Wow.

BTW, one of his later discoveries -- a Bowery Rolling Stones clone band called The Werewolves, who had at least two albums in the mid-to-late 70s -- may be worthy of future research.

I have both of those records Steve! Did you know he has a program on Little Steven's Underground Garage channel on Sirius? I was listening to him yesterday. He tells great stories.

Are those Werewolves records on CD?

I remember they were mediocre in an interesting way, but obviously it's been ages since I heard them....

As far as I can tell, nothing by the Werewolves has appeared on CD. However, they have a MySpace page (http://www.myspace.com/thewerewolves1977) which will allow you to remember just how great/awful/mediocre they are/were/never were.

My verification word today is "eaksly". And I love it.
