Armenia City In The Sky ~ The Who July 9, 2015
The new Mojo has Arrived (i can't take a picture of it, so you'll just have to believe me). Anyway, those mod demon's The Who grace the cover (looking like early 1970). There is also a confession from Pete Townsend, who claims "he was WILD." Other articles include St Vincent talking her vision of pop, Urge Overkill tell us how not to be rock stars, Peggy Seeger reminds us of the Folk Wars and there is a big BB King Obit. The Cd is a bunch of people who never got to be as famous as The Who but should generally be familiar to all you hip Soundcats and features tracks by The Artwoods, The Bo Street Runners, Johns Children and The Pretty Things. Since there is an article on the 50 best Who songs, which i haven't read, i will post my favorite who song, feel free to chime in.
