Free Mummies Tracks at WFMU!

God bless the WFMU blog for posting a whole coffin-load of free Mummies-related mp3s which you should download now!! There are several tracks by the Mummies themselves, including the out-of-print "Red Cobra No. 9" which I've played on the podcast before, but the real draw here are the original versions of 14 songs famously covered by the Mummies. There are tracks here by Devo, the Vandals, the Teddy Boys, and a whole bunch more! I especially recommend Supercharger's "Sooprize Package for Mr. Mineo", a personal favorite of mine. "Down Home Girl" is pretty essential, too. Dig that second line!

If you're new to the Mummies, they were the self-proclaimed "Kings of Budget Rock" and one of the best garage rock bands of the last 20 years. They broke up in the early 90's, but if you're gonna be in the NY/NJ area this summer, they are playing a very rare reunion gig at Maxwell's in Hoboken on June 9th. Official site link here.
