It's Valentine's Day and, well, here's a Valentine's treat for you. Not one, but two versions of the song, Valentine...originally written by Lois Maffeo back in 1993....
Lois - Valentine REMOVED
And although I love Lois' version, the original, there's something about this other version that just grabs me...
Small Factory - Valentine REMOVED
Lois has this past...well, her first band was called Courtney Love, before there was a Courtney Love
. Apparently they were room mates and the other Courtney, the person, loved the name so much, she, well, took it as her own. I've heard Lois referred to as the Grandmother of the "Riot Girls" and such, and well, she's not that old, is she? This track is from her first "Lois" release. She's worked with lots of indie-hipsters, like Donna Dresch, Brendan Canty, Ian McKaye, Heather Dunn (Dub Narcotic) and others. You can get another track from Lois over at Epitonic
, as well as some more bio info on her.
You can find and buy tons of her stuff over at kpunk
. I highly recommend that you do!
This Small Factory track is from the 1993 Spin Art
release, I Do Not Love You, or Lemon, I do not love you! Unfortunately, or fortunately, depending, it's only available on vinyl
through Spin Art anymore. You can still get it used for around $7 over at Amazon
, though.Some great info on the band over here at TweeNet
So, have a great Valentine's Day!
And well, this one's dedicated to the one I love...Cris.TechTag: Music
