Sonny and the Sunsets – Green Blood (2013)

Having a great birthday working my way through my mountain of unheard CDs after a slap up lunch with Sarah and a couple of the youngsters that almost left me in “food coma” territory.

Anyway, I was listening to the Rough Trade Shops End of the Road 10th Anniversary compilation (which, to be fair had been pretty humdrum for most of its length) when, suddenly, this track leapt out of the speakers!

An immediate classic of US lo-fi, the song has echoes of the Velvet Underground, Jonathan Richman, Camper Van Beethoven, the New Bad Things and some of the timeless New Zealand bands on Flying Nun Records .. a winning combination!

“Green Blood” is the final track on Sonny and the Sunsets 2013 LP Antenna to the Afterworld. Apparently, the composer, a Mr Sonny Smith, based the songs on some paranormal experiences he had ….

And a nice video as well – the perfect way to end a great day!
