This single was noted in the comments for my recent sharing of A Picture Made's ep, Past. Offering the same song, "God Loves a Hell of a Man" on both sides, we don't exactly get double the pleasure from this very limited 45 (ostensibly sent to subscribers of the defunct Jet Lag music 'zine and radio types), but it's a sparkling Ricken-pop tune bejeweled with chiming chords and a decent enough hook. Just what the doctor ordered. You can also investigate Ritual, another set of recordings from this Kansas-based outfit on the website linked above.
The Chesterfield Kings "HERE ARE ..." 1983 - This is cool as hell. From the haircuts you can tell they had a crazy devotion to the 60s look and sound. The album sounds like it came out of a time warp....
