Al Peluso, Counts IV guitarist

We’ve just learned that our pal Al Peluso (lead guitarist of the great Counts IV) passed away in October. Al was a good friend to us here at Sundazed – we’ll sure miss him. Happily, Al’s great, fuzzy, garage guitar sound will LIVE ON…

Howard Berkman

We’re very, very sad to learn of our friend Howard Berkman’s recent passing… Howard was the mighty leader, singer and songwriter of DUNWICH RECORDS legends, THE KNAVES. What a wonderfully wild talent… He’ll certainly be missed. And we will do our very best to carry on his legacy.

Join Sundazed at the WFMU 2011 Record Fair

Mark down the dates of the WFMU 2011 Record Fair in New York City!

Join us once again at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th St, in splendidly autumnal Manhattan. The Sundazed staff will be there on Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29, perched next to a few tables loaded down with orange crates full of reasonably-priced vinyl rarities and, of course, all the hottest new Sundazed releases. As Time Out New York once put it: “Sell your clothes, sell your books, sell your soul to get some extra cash to blow at this event, probably the best of its kind anywhere in the U.S.”

“Rabid in the Kennel” podcast features the Left Banke

Jack Rabid of The Big Takeover magazine features the Left Banke performing live on his latest “Rabid in the Kennel” podcast:

“This week/month on the “Rabid in the Kennel” sessions: it’s New York’s ’60s legends The Left Banke! Wow! Doing (live in session) their massive Top 20 1966 smashes “Walk Away Renee” and “Pretty Ballerina” and two others, with their current lineup (featuring original singers, Tom Finn and George Cameron, and some great Losers Lounge-associated greats). Plus I spin records by spinoff band Montage and their contemporaries The Zombies, plus Belle & Sebastian (naturally; the Left Banke have no bigger fans), and Starbelly covering them. And as usual, I interview Finn and Cameron; what a thrill and a pleasure!”

Listen in!
