Nourallah Harvey Dezen NHD "Live From The Astorturf"

We will gather at GOOD RECORDS October 28th to celebrate the release of NHD's ‘And The Devil Went Up To Portland,’ the trio’s riotous debut record. Born out of a series of freewheeling and collaborative live tours between Salim Nourallah, Billy Harvey & Alex Dezen, the album showcases a band built on equal parts humor and heart, one blessed with an embarrassment of artistic riches.

Tom Armstrong "Live From The Astroturf"

We will be celebrating the reissue of Tom's highly sought after private press LP (comes out 4/14/17 on Tompkins Square on CD & LP) with a special performance by Tom Armstrong as he currently resides in Dallas. Tom will play a brief set and sign copies of the release after his performance.

D.L. Nailling & Derek Rogers will be kicking things off on this special evening.

Tompkins Square's recent double-LP, Imaginational Anthem vol 8 : The Private Press shed light on forgotten, impossibly rare guitar recordings spanning several decades. Tom Armstrong's The Sky Is An Empty Eye is the first of several reissues planned by Tompkins Square of full albums by artists featured on IA8.

Armstrong's self-released LP from 1987 sports blissed out acoustic numbers like the one featured on IA8, along with some electric workouts and even a deep psych vocal tune. Tom's main mode of distribution for the album was handing the LP to drunken patrons at a bar in Pinos Altos, NM. Now Tompkins Square makes it a bit easier to acquire.

In his own words, today:

I was born in Elmhurst IL, lived there 29 years. Had a brief career playing open mikes and bars for tips, drinks and nominal cash payments, even gave some guitar lessons.

In 1984 I was offered a half partnership in an engineering firm in Dallas, so I moved to Texas. Made a big pile of money. My wife bought me a Tascam 4 track recorder for my birthday, I went crazy with it. Recorded a bunch of melodies that had been rattling around my brain since I was 8 years old. Liked what I heard, decided to make an LP.

It wasn't too hard to track down a studio to master my 4 tracks. By this time I was an old hand at graphic design for promotional material, so I designed the cover myself.

Handed the albums out to business associates, as promotional material for other business interests, at a drunken open mike at a bar in Pinos Altos, NM.

I continued to record for about another 10 years, blues rock, pop. Really refined my recording skills. Still play once in while, but I'm an old fart now, with all the baggage that entails.

Helado Negro "Live From The Astroturf"

The son of Ecuadorean immigrants, Helado Negro was born in South Florida in 1980. His childhood was suffused with tropical heat, humidity, hurricanes, all refracted with the rich sounds and colors of the various Latin American cultures of southern Florida. 

Helado Negro has an expanded edition of his latest album "Private Energy" on RVNG Intl. coming out May 5th so this is the perfect time to catch him at Good Records and grab a copy on Sunday May 7th and then catch his full show at Club Dada the next night.
