Another good show...

Was able to get some more information direct from David on the cover of A Thrill's A Thrill that David has been playing recently that has been hard to track down information on the web about (he played it again in tonight's show). He confirmed that the track is by Circle Jurk whcih has Billy Newton Davis singing. The CD was very recently released (David had an advance copy) and is on the Nancy Boy label. Billy was once a member of the Nylons. A web search for Nancy Boy Records lead to www.nancyboyrecords.com which seems to be a dead link.

In case it's of any interest, I recently wrote an article on the recording of the The Globe. It was kind of funny to listen back to it trying to work out how we did it!

Very cool - thanks for the comment and the link, interesting to have some detailed information on how that track came together.

Later,
Ralph

Some info on the Circle Jurks can be found here http://fyimusic.ca/talent/new-releases/nancy-boy-hits-on-radio-with-saucy-gay-pride-song

It doesn't mention the Thrill song but everything else is in keeping with what David said.

There appear to be at least 3 Nancy Boy Record companies. One in Philly, one in Canton, OH and one in Toronto.
