Nuggets 277 – Girls 6

This is one of my favourite mixes. Sad to report that that there are no videos available for most of the older tracks… You will have to use your imagination.

That’s Della Humphrey in the photo above looking fabulous in the late 1960’s. She features in the last song in this mix ‘ “Don’t Make the Good Girls Go Bad”. There is an interview with Della in the write up below.

Getting Mighty Crowded – Betty Everett

A Whole New Plan – Jo Ann Garrett

What’cha Gonna Do About ItDoris Troy


Oh No Not My BabyMaxine Brown

The Jerk – The Larks

The song of the dance.

Lungomare – Lust For Youth

Holding You Back & Ashes and Embers – The Casket Girls

Named for the French woman brought over to the USA as mail order brides.

The acoustic / piano versions of their songs on the album “Piano’ are excellent. See below.

Lust & Violence + Elliott – Terror Bird


Sister Wife – Alex Winston

Love the voice, but according to this account it is fortunate that she can still sing.

Keep Falling – Summer Camp

More about the band and this album on The Quietus.

The Greater Good – The Leaf Library

The Party – Betty And The Werewolves

1997, Passing In The Hallway – Martha

Dream House – Amanda X

Girls XL & Hazardville – Potty Mouth

It All Means Nothing – Screaming Females

Adderall – The Coathangers

Killer Bangs – Honeyblood

Rochelle Rochelle, Earthbound and Loose – Butter The Children

Cry About It – Bad Banana

Longtime fan of everything the Crutchfield twins make. Here is a track from one of their earlier bands. As you can read here they are are all grown up now and have their own bands – Katie as Waxahache and Alison as Swearin’ .

A Common Place – Libyans

Don’t Make The Good Girls Go Bad – Della Humphrey

A classic. Here is the story of Della.

Girls, wall of sound production; you know the drill.

Norma-Jean Wofford aka The Duchess is on the cover, a groovy guitarist who played with Bo Diddley. The Duchess kept up with Mr Diddley, but on heels, as demonstrated in the clip below.

It’s slightly disconcerting that nearly all these bands are from the USA. Note to self, listen to more local bands.

Sweet Bulbs is a now defunct Brooklyn band that made a delightful smeary sound. Some of the band members play on as Butter The Children – see the Bandcamp widget below.

Potty Mouth is a tuneful grrrrrrl band. They can be intimidating to mild mannered men.


Asobi Seksu have an excellent shoegazey sound. Sad to report but they have decided to stop making music.

There are two songs about record stores, one from through the eyes of a crazed fan, the other seeing the shop as a place to pick up guys / girls. I prefer the crazed fan one – sharp lyrics.

In Sadie, Katie Crutchfield of the late P.S. Eliot lets rip. This may the last chance we have to hear her scream now that she has gone all mainstream. Hopefully her (twin) sister will keep up the yelling.
