The Unloved

“Mr. Unloved is an underground veteran. With a hilarious collection of songs about necrophilia, unfaithful women and voodoo borrows from the Nighthawks-era Tom Waits/Screamin’ Jay Hawkins playbook, complete with props, producing blazing packets of flash powder from his tacky jacket for especially poignant moments during the show. He’s a true busker in the best sense of the word–total showbiz, but with generosity, joy and warmth.” – Lord Whimsy

This is a 1990 – 2 song demo tape from the Unloved.

Wishniaks Live on WKDU 1989

Wishniaks Live on WKDU from sometime in 1989 on Jackie’s show.

It was a very long time ago. It may have been our first performance for radio. I know we were psyched to be there. I remember the headphone mix sounding nothing like us and was a bit thrown by that. We played everything really fast, or sped up during tunes, which was kind of our m.o. Nice to hear what Jim Hostetter was doing on guitar and vocals. We always made such a racket live that I could never really tune in to what he was doing. This set is the band after our first e.p. came out and we were getting songs and our chops together for recording our album in Spring of ‘90. “Left in the Dark” is a cover of the Vertebrats. – except for the Vertebrats cover, all words and music by me, publishing: Bang Quack Music. Hostetter took some lyrical liberties live a la Westerberg. – Andrew Chalfen

Wishniaks were Andrew Chalfen (Trolleyvox, I Think Like Midnight) – Guitar, David Frank – Drums, James B. Moran – Bass & Jim Hostetter – Guitar & Vocals.

Thanks for the tape Jackie & for Andrew for making the files sound better.

Pedestrian Angels

Pedestrian Angels included Sam Steinig on Keyboards and Vocals, Eddie Beinlich on Drums, Henry on Vocals and Harmonica, Leonard on Bass and Rainy Orteca on Guitar. The band didn’t actually have an official name but Pedestrian Angels was one that was suggested and considered. They practiced in the basement of the Big Brothers Big Sisters building on N.13th Street where some of the members worked and where this practice was recorded. Pedestrian Angels only existed for two and a half months, in 1988, and never played a live show. In 1992 Sam and Eddie would start the band Mondo Topless. After Pedestrian Angles, Rainy played in the Philly bands Baby Flamehead and Gimme before moving to Brooklyn where she played bass for Joan Osbourne in 1995 and since 2004 can be heard playing bass in the band Joan As Police Woman.
