eddie gilmer, on clevelands own Wildfire Rcords

i found this early last summer. both sides are mid tempo and the b side is also a duet. of course theres just about no info on either the singer or the label. i just happened to grow up in the area where the label was, so i drove by. i thought it might be an old warehouse as its an industrial area. when i got there it was just a small house, which looked like its seen the wrath of the failing neighborhood.

im not quite sure if this is the same eddie gilmer, but there is one who recorded a few cuts for starday records:
the robertson brothers and eddie gilmer- why do i cry/ poison love
the RG's (joe robertson, harold robertson, eddie gilmer)  -take this picture/right or wrong

the string shifters, cambridge ohio

heres a little band that i somehow found 2 singles from in the same weekend from different places. i first thought maybe they were some what popular ,but have never seen anything by them since. these songs were recorded in Cambridge, Ohio for the AVC( audio visual creations) label.

i havent been able to find any information on the band, but the studio is still up and running. it has switched from producing music to doing something with video productions. i was really surprised that any sort of info showed up when i googled the label name!

heres the hit which i uploaded to youtube

hot fun in theSUN!

well, not much new here. just tones of crappy yard work. however, i did come across a couple of new records and a pretty sweet super 8 film.

found these 2 sun 78's at a weird barn sale that had about 1500 lps. best part is....they were only 50 CENTS! both are johnny cash: i walk the line and folsom prison blues


this is a pretty cool looking record. they most likely gave these away with the magazine or had a coupon of some sort in the back ads.


i wish these super 8's were longer. i think theyre so cool. it even has peter cushing on the cover! another fine hammer film

junk sale in a funeral home?

so the other day erin and i went to an estate sale above a funeral home. some crazy stuff! nothing funeral related but some super cool monster stuff!

so super wild to find a rat fink mask and even crazier that we found the ( child size) matching costume! now if we could find the time to paint the hallway and turn it into out weirdo model/ halloween room we'd be in shape!

i managed to peddle some of my crappy drawings and photos into this here book! i think there's about 6 photos and 8 or 9 little drawings. most of the photos are from either cemeteries or the old abandoned Chippewa Amusement park that used to be here in Ohio. its mainly just a horror themed book, some poetry, photos, drawings, and all sorts of weird stuff!

heres a link to buy it if dig that sort of thing:
