Fruit Eating Bears & The 101ers
Check out Fruit Eating Bears CD on Overground, there's a track called Green Love which Joe Strummer apparently wrote and sung with The 101ers. Can't find anything about it on the web. Does anyone know anything about this song? The F.E.B CD also includes a track called 1.30 2.30 3.35 which Lew Lewis Reformer later recorded for Stiff. Saw Fruit Eating Bears on TV on some run up to Eurovision thing in 78. F.E.B seem to be quite typical of a lot of first wave UK punk: played by reasonably accomplished muso-type blokes; lots of r'n'r riffs and trying to play it simple, often a few theatrical Bowie-isms with more experience and expertise than they wanted to let on. Get in touch if you know anything about this mystery Joe Strummer tune.

The Gentry Underground
Nostradamus EP (Brains / TV Head / My, Oh My / Nostradamus) (Skinbag Records)

Sonic architects The Gentry Underground have unleashed four more tracks from their prolific 60s US psych arsenal. Now accompanied by their own Mo Tucker on the drums, this unit builds complete sounds in a way that so many punks could never dream of. Notes and chords are glued together with precision to take the listener to Gentry Street, a road where atmosphere resides and no one ever talks of shifting units.
This 18 minute, 4 track CD continues to show that the creation of auras and soundscapes is where the Underground excel. They're reputed to be pretty good live, too. The band has a considerable amount of quality, original material in the can and is currently looking for a label that understands the way it works. Interested parties should contact TGU in the usual way.
