Tune of the Week: The Brimstones’ “FM Receiver”

The Brimstones – “FM Receiver”

When you go to a gig and don’t know the opening acts, you usually don’t care. They’re just an obstacle in the way of your goal: getting to see the headliner. In what I believe was 2005, quite a few years ago at this point, I saw The Brimstones open for legendary rock n roll guitarist Link Wray at Asbury Lanes in New Jersey. The show was one of his last, taking place only months before Wray died. I didn’t know who they were before but I’ve remembered their red and black outfits and their smokey garage rock ever since.
