Hey there. I'm Eddie DaRoza, and here's your Daily Detour.
Ohhhhhhhh aren't these the cutest little things. A little doll Johnny Rotten. A company has made a line of three and a half inch Sex Pistols toys. The little vinyl figures are dressed is classic pistols attire and retail for about ten bucks. Through one on your desk for a constant reminder of how punk you should be. Or how a sid, Johnny, and Steve collection. Which by the way - where's the Paul Cook doll?
The Big Pink have released one of my favorite albums of the year in Future This. I'm still wondering when they are going to come play it live out here in California. But anyways… The band just released a free remix album with new versions of Stay Gold, Superman, and 77. Contributions of the record come from Danny Brown, King Krule and AraabmusiK among others.
And finally today, The Gaslight Anthem just streamed their New York concert live from the Williamsburg Music Hall in Brooklyn. The show was great, but the highlight for me was this awesome cover of - as Brian Fallon stated "one of the greatest rock songs ever" - Baba O' Riley by The Who. Check this clip out.
I love that song. The Who forever.
Ok that's all for me. I'm outta here. You have a nice rest of your day. Later.
