Brett & Nina Interview/Junk Shop Glam Release/Chelsea Doll covers Brett Smiley's "Va Va Va Voom"

Jade Blackmore recently did an interview with Brett & Nina regarding the release of Nina's book. You can read it here.

RPM Records,U.K. has just released another fabulous compilation of 'Junk Shop Glam' rarities, entitled "Junk Shop Glam: Boobs" ("Boobs" was the name of an early 70's discoteque, in South London and Bristol.) Full artist and track listing for this exciting comp are listed below.


  1. Little Bit’o Soul - Iron Cross
  2. Albatross Baby - Chunky
  3. Motor Boat - Jimmy Jukebox
  4. Dance With The Guitar Man - Shelby
  5. Love is Alright (Hey) - Hot Rod
  6. Yeah - Jets
  7. Roxy Roller - Sweeney Todd
  8. Turtle Dove - Rats
  9. Did You Get What You Wanted - Boston Boppers
  10. Lets Go - Rock Rebellion
  11. Teenage Love Affair - Iron Virgin
  12. Jungle - Erasmus Chorum
  13. Poor Annie - Barry Blood
  14. What Do You Do With My Sweetheart - Graeme Grace
  15. Good Time Fanny - Angel
  16. Shout It Out - Ice Cream
  17. Natural Gas - Paul Ryan
  18. Black Eyed Woman - The Sensation
  19. Wired Up - Hector
  20. Looking For You - Redhead

Jimmy Jukebox (Track #2) is actually L.A.'s legendary underground genius Kim Fowley. The Steven McDonald Group (featuring Steven McDonald of "Redd Kross") covered "Motorboat" for their 2002 CD ep, entitled "This Is Not A Rebellion...This Is A Mass Awakening!" It's a really groovy track and it should have been a hit BOTH times!

Sweeney Todd (Track #7) was a Canadian band that featured Nick Gilder ("Hot Child In The City") and, at one point, Bryan Adams (EEK! He practically OWNED the airwaves in the 80's!). Their song, "Roxy Roller" featured Gilder on vocals and 16-year old Adams on guitar.

As for Brett Smiley news, I've been informed that 14-year old Chelsea Doll from Los Angeles has recorded a cover of Brett's "Va Va Va Voom." And what a wonderful song to cover! It is completely catchy, and pure ear candy. As soon as I've received more information, I'll post it. It's really cool that this kid is hip enough to delve into other (and especially older) types of music! Let's face it, the current wave of what's being fed to today's youth is pretty horrendous. You've got to dig for the good stuff. It doesn't just magically appear. And on that note, until next time!

Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
