Tommy Jay's Tall Tales of Trauma, originally released on cassette by Mike Rep's Old Age/No Age label in 1986, is seeing a bit more daylight this year thanks to Columbus Discount Records. Let it be known that the Quotas' drummer and a seasoned collaborator is also responsible for an americana
psych-folk gem. "Old Hemingway" is like Pearls Before Swine without the whimsy. "Memories" holds a twisted mirror to 80's synth-pop. Tommy Jay seems to be channelling Lou Reed on "Winter Nomad", and "I Was There" - my personal favorite - sounds like Ariel Pink covering the Bevis Frond. Kudos to Col Disc for giving Tommy Jay the CD/LP treatment! (-via Jason SIgal at WFMU's Beware of the Blog)
