Brute Force” (2012), trailer
Director: Ben Steinbauer

In 1967, Brute Force had just released his first album on Columbia Records and was on the brink of becoming a star. The Beatles championed his next single, “King of Fuh,” to be released on Apple Records. But dreams of fame and fortune quickly turned into nightmares when the record was censored and permanently shelved. In 2010, Sony and Apple reissued Brute Force’s controversial music from the sixties, giving him another chance to re-capture his dreams of rock stardom.

“…. the “Fuh King” lives on and so does Brute Force, with the October 2010 reissue of his legendary 1967 Columbia LP “Confections of Love” featuring “King of Fuh” as a bonus track (Bar/None) and “Winnebago Man” director Ben Steinbauer (via Razor Films) currently in production of a documentary about Brute’s life and work. And the icing on this beautiful birthday cake (Brute just turned 70), is the release of Apple Corps “Come and Get It, The Best of Apple” CD which includes Brute Force’s “King of Fuh” along with other great Apple stars like James Taylor, Mary Hopkin, and Billy Preston.”

The Feelies – Should Be Gone

Odd Girl Out – Richard Barone/Jill Sobule
Taken from the “Glow” album via Bar/None, ‘Odd Girl Out’ was co-written by Barone and Jill Sobule, the song tells the true story of a lesbian in the pre-Stonewall days of the West Village. 

Glow is the new solo album from Richard Barone, guitarist and vocalist for cult faves the Bongos. The album is a sonic delight; like a lost solo Beatle album from a glam-rock future-world. After taking a break from performing to produce others and write a book, Barone is back working with his long time friend and favorite producer Tony Visconti along with Steve Addabbo, Jill Sobule, Paul Williams (co-write “Silence Is Our Song”), Smithereens drummer Dennis Diken and others, Glow positively glows with great songs like “Gravity’s Pull,” “Yet Another Midnight” and a captivating cover of Marc Bolan’s “Girl.” The king of chamber pop does not disappoint on this stunning new addition to his catalog.
