Hermit Tunes Episode 6

13 Aug

Here we are, episode 6!  There are some great tracks including a fun song from the Nightingales that I re-stumbled upon in the stacks at KDVS on the great Cherry Red Records. There’s also an awesome cover by Tuxedo Moon, the mystery band Poor Girls, and my favorite Buzzcocks song. Enjoy!
