We're thrilled to have our NYC debut with Miriam and Nobody's Babies at the BOWERY ELECTRIC with superstar action on both ends- the early-start evening begins with doors at 6:30 and John Cooper Clarke hitting the stage 7 PM, Miriam and the gang at 8 PM, and Cheetah Chrome at 9 PM with Mad Juanas capping off a wild night indeed at 10 PM!
FRIDAY SEPT. 12 BOWERY ELECTRIC! When Sam and Miriam finished recording the tracks for the NOBODY'S BABY album, they did not figure on blasting through those songs onstage. Then came Diane Gentile of the Bowery Electric-- better known as the Sybil Burton of the 21st century-- asking if they would play her club featuring the songs from NOBODY'S BABY. Being as the album was recorded with Sam on all instruments and Miriam on the vocals, it took a fine tooth comb to pull together a combo that could cut el moutarde. Come hear and meet Nobody's Babies on Friday night at their NYC debut at 8 PM, right between John Cooper Clark (7 PM) and Cheetah Chrome (9 PM)! Pick up the record HERE!

SRIN's DAN FERGUSON SAYS…
The recently departed Gerry Goffin would be flippin’ in his grave if he could give a whiff to the solo debut from A-Bones drummer Miriam Linna. The Brill Building sound comes alive on this 12-track outing of 1960s-styled, ear-pleasing girl pop & roll. As Ms. Linna herself describes, “This album is a collection of personal favorites from the mid-sixties (primarily) featuring unheralded, broody monsters from bubbling-unders (and overs) - we even recorded an original heart-buster which we hope you dig the most. Somewhere along the line, a gust of wind took off with my last name and I became a one-name person, like Cher. Or Rasputin, for that matter.” What began as Miriam cutting a single track with studio ace Sam Elwitt soon after took on a life of its own resulting in the foot-longer called Nobody’s Baby. So here we have Miriam dipping into the catalogues of a wide ranging collection of cool cats from Gene Clark (“So You Say You Lost Your Baby”) to Neil Young (“There Goes My Babe”) to Tim Buckley (“It Happens Every Time”) to the Ramones (“Questioningly”) to Bobby Darin (“Not For Me”) and delivering pure ear candy in the process. The album features Miriam on all vocals with Elwitt handling just about all the instruments. It has this writer hoping there will be more from where this came from.
MIRIAM IS A "CRAYONS TO PERFUME GIRL" AND LUVVING IT!
