With exactly two weeks remaining before studio mastering of This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio, Volume 4, we're pleased to finally announce that the ever-fab Lannie Flowers is joining forces with the mighty Vegas With Randolph for a new TIRnRR#4 track called "The Weekend's Coming." The song was co-written by Vegas With Randolph and Lannie Flowers, and it's a match made in TIRnRR Heaven. "The Weekend's Coming" by Vegas With Randolph Featuring Lannie Flowers will make its debut on This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio, Volume 4. We've always said the weekend stops here!
“'I Need Your Love Tonight' mines both the sweet and crunchy sides of The Raspberries sound (with just a hint of The Grass Roots) for four minutes of indisputable proof that this heritage artist, whose work passionately promoting indie pop artists is well-known and treasured, is top of the pops.
There are still two TIRnRR#4 artists we can't reveal yet, both of them with ties to Central New York. They are confirmed, but we haven't finalized a specific or two. For one of these two tracks, it's a simple matter of determining whether or not we have room to squeeze it in--this CD is jam-packed! For the other, we know what song we're using, but it's been recorded under a few different artist names, and we haven't yet determined which nom du bop we're goin' with. At this late date, we're still waiting on a few final masters, too. If we're missing stuff on mastering day, I figure I'm just gonna go into the studio and whistle renditions of my original songs "A Wombat In Love" and "My Kneecap Loves Your Kneecap." We must all pray that does not happen.
The current public list of contributors and tracks appears below. The Flashcubes' track will be one of two Gary Frenay-penned pop gems. We've updated one of the two [redacted] potential tracks to indicate the song title. We're gonna try like hell to squeeze in the other one, too. A sample of the cover art should be available soon.
