Spanking Charlene

New CD
Sad Bastards of Brooklyn

By opting for sincerity over irony and pathos over snarkiness, the team of Charlene McPherson and Mo Goldner have given us a slice of the Brooklyn they used to live in. For this special project, they’ve harvested the sad ol’ songs of their favorite scribes, ranging from Bob Dylan and Alex Chilton to Elton John and Johnny Thunders. When McPherson sings lines like “You can’t put your arms around a memory,” or “Sorry seems to be the hardest word,” you can’t help but feel her pain.

National Champions

You'll be forgiven for thinking that Terry Anderson would have run out of songs by now. He's been at it for over 30 years, and his tunes have stocked the shelves for the Faboulous Knobs, the Woods, the Yayhoos, various other Dan Baird enterprises, and, of course, the Olympic Ass-Kickin Team. But, nope, here he is back with another batch - songs about sex, women, sexy women, America the Contradictory and Barry Bonds and it might jus be his best collection yet.
