New one from The Connection!
On the B-side, Brad, Geoff, and the gang do a crackling power pop version of The Boys' classic "First Time". I've heard this song covered a few times before, and every time it just made me want to hear the original. But I really like what The Connection did with this song. They put their distinctive Connection twist on it, so it comes off kind of sweet rather than ominous. And listening to this recording, one can easily understand why this cover goes over so well in a live setting. I love their treatment of the material, and I love the energy!
"Don't Talk To My Baby" is limited to 500 copies on colored vinyl. Order it now for $6, or get it along with the new Muck And The Mires 7" for a $10 bundle. As a bonus, fans can stream an unreleased second cover from the Warmaudio sessions over at The Connection's Bandcamp page - an awesome rendition of The Who's "The Kids Are Alright". Come on- what are you waiting for?!
