Hope you don’t mind, but the Austin Music Minute is doing things slightly different today.
The AMM is proud to present a special KUTX pop-up performance premiere of the dark ‘n’ eerie “End of It All” by Austin-based blues rock duo (and longtime AMM fave) The Ghost Wolves. And it’s all in anticipation of forthcoming 7-inch vinyl releases they’ve ominously titled The Ghost Series, featuring the dynamic duo playing covers of their favorite artists who have moved on…to the next realm…
Seriously super cool. The first is a tribute to an Austin legend, How The West Was Won: Love To Blaze Foley, with the tracks “Oval Room” and “WW3.” The second release will pay homage to ghoulishly gorgeous fiends The Cramps. Digital releases of the music are set for Tuesday November 3, with vinyl preorders available now. And word from the Wolves is that special editions with handmade block print ink covers by Carley Wolf will also be available.
And speaking of The Cramps, The Ghost Wolves are on the line-up of a huge livestream tribute to The Cramps presented by one of the Wolves’ favorite NYC venues, The Bowery Electric, on Friday October 30th at 8 p.m. (Central). You may recognize a couple of fellow Austin-based badasses on that bill, Kathy Valentine, and Jeff Klein (My Jerusalem).
