The Flaming Stars

Here's a double album dip for you furls, I've been busy and a bit lazy lately- yada, yada, yada. England's the Flaming Stars haven't received much attention in the States, they are comparable to the Bad Seeds and Tom Waits except with a gritty garage edge. Here's my personal favorite compilation album Alternative Tentacles released in '01 titled Ginmill Perfume- The Story So Far 1995-2000. This comp is a great introduction to the band, it contains the best of their first four albums including "A Place In The Sun," "You Don't Always Want What You Get" and "Only Tonight." I'm also throwing in their '02 release Sunset & Void with hits including "Cash 22." Enjoy.
