Today is Steve Kaika’s birthday and here’s a nice gift from Bill Dumas. It’s compiled from footage, interviews and outtakes from his Reducers documentary.
Can’t make it to New London next weekend to celebrate the release of Last Tracks and Lost Songs? Order your CD right now at the Rave On Records Online Store. $10 includes shipping to the USA.
“Last Tracks and Lost Songs” collects songs from The Reducers’ last recording sessions along with “lost songs” from as far back as 1989. Most are previously unreleased (including a superb lead vocal from Steve Kaika on Getaway) and every one’s a rocker.
