Old Wounded Lion; Young Rubber Blanket

This brings back memories - Wounded Lion in their prime, when they were playing every few weeks around town with their idiosyncratic rhythm section. Too bad Ami didn't get to do "Career Opportunities!" But they're in righteous form on several other classics including the slower version of "Creatures in the Cave" and opening up with my fave "Carol Cloud." Dig:

Not sure if WL's on permanent vacation, but Brad, Jun & Lars' new band Rubber Blanket has just released their debut album, and these awesome vids to illustrate three of their hot new numbers, including the last - perhaps the greatest Captain Beefheart cover ever! Full tuneage available here:
