This time Chris (Drummer) from 'The Lost T-Shirt Of Atlantis' has left some comments (check them out for extra info) and there's good news for anyone liking their music, and looking for those two difficult to find albums. Chris has added both albums and a few live tracks on the new Lost T-Shirts of Atlantis Facebook site which you can find here. So get yourself over there and check them out.
A different type of posting for ASFM today. In the early 90's (or was it late 80's?) me and a few friends went on a pub crawl in London. I can't even remember the area now but we wondered into a pub where "The Lost T-Shirts Of Atlantis" were playing.
None of us had heard of them before, but they immediately took our attention, when they did a folk/skiffle version of 70's rock band "Hawkwind" and their classic "Silver Machine" (note this is way before bands like the "Hayseed Dixies" thought that covering rock bands in folk/skiffle style would be cool). So we stayed to the end and had a brilliant night, and at the end of the gig they were selling cassettes of some of their songs (including Silver Machine) so I bought a copy and this is what I am posting today. As usual before I posted I did a check to see if anyone had heard of them before and was surprised to find that they had released two CD's (unfortunately no longer available - has anyone out there got them?), and even more surprised to find that there was one album still available on iTunes. As a couple of these tracks are still available I have removed them from this posting (but you can get them over on iTunes, and if you do like this then you will love the three missing tracks).
Their own tracks are good but I have to say I love some of these covers, as well as Silver Machine, they cover "Folsom Prison Blues", and if you were born in the 60's you would also recognize "Stingray" and "Fireball XL5" and lastly "Wipe Out" originally by the "Surfaris". So try out this tape and then get over and buy those missing tracks at "iTunes" (and help out the Lost T-Shirts of Atlantis).
Leave a comment and tell ASFM what you think of "The Lost T-Shirts Of Atlantis".
