We first encountered The Record Company performing at the new Los Feliz vinyl music shop High Fidelity on Hillhurst this past Winter when they were playing at a free open house party of sorts for the new neighborhood business upstart.
This led to the band’s “Don’t Let Me Get Lonely” being among the first local band songs to go into full rotation in the earliest days of Radio Free Indie programming. TRC have since gotten busy filling out their dance card with a list a Springtime shows that begin tonight (4/12) at Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown in Joshua Tree and tomorrow (4/13) at the Desert Daze Festival in Desert Hot Springs (The event is a spill-over answer to the sold out blankchella festival happening in Indio.)
The band apparently wasn’t already busy enough so they decided to record, shoot and edit a video of a unique vintage-flavored take on the Stooges “I Wanna Be Your Dog”. It’s worthy of a view and a listen and is indicative of a band that is rapidly maturing. Enjoy.
