It was twenty years ago today that Nelson Slater first spoke to me about releasing his follow-up to Wild Angel, an LP that came out on RCA in 1976. I’m happy to report that the album has now appeared; it’s called Steam-Age Time Giant, and it came out (as should every album) on vinyl. Here’s a link to a recent blog entry I wrote about the record:
This Friday, April 12 Nelson will be playing at Daniel’s Pub, which is still there after all those wild years, at 2735 Vine Street. Great things have been happening on Short Vine lately (including some new developments at Bogart’s), and this will be an opportunity to bring some of the old spirit back. Going to Daniels will bring back old memories for us veterans and launch new ones for the newcomers. Folks, this is an event, let’s get out and show some support! The music starts at 9, Something Groovy will be Nelson’s special guests, and other performers include Grow Horns, Large Hadron Collider, and The Special People. Also, rumor has it (we’re not certain yet if this is just another one of those unfounded internet rumors) that Mr. Jerry Parker will be in attendance Friday evening.
