I'm going to do that 7 Inch Atlanta newspaper column in The West Georgian again this semester, though in the spring I was not happy with the results. I have been asked to not write about punk stuff every week, so instead of praising The Coathangers, Predator, Poison Arrows, Baby Dinosaurs, GG King, etc. every week I will only talk about 7 Inch Atlanta favorites every other week.
The only non-punk/garage/indie stuff I like and own that are new-ish is a Helen McCookerybook (The Chefs, Helen and the Horns) folk album and that Guitar Lightnin' Lee double 7" Die Slaughterhaus released earlier this year.
Does anyone have any suggestions for Atlanta-based rap, folk, alt-country, or anything else that has not crossed the 7 Inch Atlanta radar?
P.S. The first column of the fall will be out next week and will be a review of BJ's solo album.
