Singles Going Single #111 - New Radiant Storm King - 2 Salvaged Songs 7" (1992, Trixie)

Massachusetts' long running indie pioneers New Radiant Storm King are no strangers to this blog (click on the hyperlink to bring up some of their previous entries). The two 1991 tracked songs that comprise the 2 Salvaged Songs single feature some serious six-string wrangling by one Peyton Pinkerton, the focal point of NRSK. "Smear" is as melodic as it is raucous, while the flip "Indiana Jones" makes a strong case as to why every household should posses at minimum one copy each of Daydream Nation and You're Living All Over Me. "Smear" would eventually wind up on an NRSK single and rarities compilation, Leftover Blues 1991-2003, which I believe is available from iTunes, Emusic and the like, while the b-side remains exclusive to this wax. If you like what you hear, do yourself a favor and check out New Radiant Storm King's website for more info than you can shake a mouse at.

A. Smear
B. Indiana Jones

Hey dude, regular visitor, rare poster. Just wanted to say that NRSK's "Leftover Blues" album was put out on cd by Contraphonic Records. Presumably still in print, but I don't know for sure.

I love NRSK. I have not heard the B-side to this. Thanks for posting it!
