The Smithereens – Blood And Roses (Dutch 12″)

Some guitar stuff from 1986 now and a debut on this blog from American Indie Rock band,  The Smithereens. Lead songwriter, Pat DiNizio (vocals & guitar), Jim Babjak (guitar & vocals), Mike Mesaros (bass guitar & vocals), and Dennis Diken.(drums & percussion) The main track has a bass rumbling intro and rocks out with a bit of the 60’s in there and a fledgling Nirvana busy taking notes  Instrumental ,”Mister Eliminator” is almost surf punk and should be on a Tarantino soundtrack. “Beauty And Sadness” was recorded live at the Cat Club, New York City, 28th May 1986. An early track that tips its hat to the Beatles.
