ALBUMS

She Said Boom

Lisa from She Said Boom recommends...

Tyrannosaurus Rex - The Beard Of Stars
"One of their earliest records. It's pretty weird sounding with Marc Bolan's high vocals - he develops his voice during this album; he really lets it go.'

The Ugly Ducklings - Self Titled
"A Canadian band - the song Gaslight is named after a bar that used to be on Yonge St. A classic loud garage rock record."

King Tubbys - Meets Rockers Uptown
"A re-issue. A lot of dub stuff can be boring but this isn't. It's completely dub album. Bands like Massive Attack can be seen sampling stuff like this."

And because She Said Boom also sells books, I asked Lisa to recommend one of those too...

Ask The Dust by John Fante
"Fante was a big influence on Charles Bukowski. With this book in particular you can really see it. A really great book."
