Music news: The Nerves, Steve Jones, and more

A few cool things I found while browsing through the music blogosphere recently. Hope you'll find something worthwhile here too.

1. Steve Jones (Sex Pistols guitarist and rock radio dj) is without a radio gig for the moment, due to LA's Indie 103.1 radio station recently folding. Bad economy and all that...

For those who'd like to hear Steve's show (I understand it had a loyal following in LA), I checked around and you can find archived programs of Jonesy's Jukebox at the Indie 103.1 site, as well as this link.

2. 365 rpm (Hat tip: Post Punk Tumblr) hips us to the rock n' roll brilliance of The Nerves, and the little-known fact that "Hanging on the Telephone" (a tune made famous by Blondie) is actually a Nerves original.

3. So Many Records has some cool things to share re: Iggy Pop, Fleetwood Mac, and Glasvegas.

Definitely check out this blog; I came in via search to a post on Dave Dee, Dozy, Beeky, Mick and Tich and was completely sold after checking out all the great posts on the home page. This guy's got a lot of rock n' roll stories to boot!

4. Mr. Obscure has turned me on to some interesting stuff lately, including songs from the Venus In Fur's 1986 LP, Real Moral Fibre. I've managed to find one song from this rather hard to find record up on YouTube and hope to hear more in the future.

Check out the MP3's found in the white scroll box. It's updated every month, though from what I gather by looking around at this very unconventional Blogger site, there doesn't seem to be a post archive. But you will find song descriptions and links to more music blogs further down the page.

That's it for now. Enjoy the links and the tunes!
