Allah-Las and The Professionals & Show # 460

The Allah-Las - Don't You Forget It

The Allah-Las are a newer band based out of Los Angeles, California. The band formed in 2008. Three of its members knew each other from working at Amoeba Music, and the band consists of Spencer Durhan (bass), Matthew Correia (drums), Pedrum Siadatian (lead guitar) and Miles Michaud (guitar/vocals). The band's first release was a seven inch record featuring the song “Catamaran” backed with “Long Journey”. Their music captures a very Californian sound featuring Psychedelic, catchy British Invasion sounds, mixed in with a dash of some American Garage. The band released two singles in 2012, and also released their first full length album entitled The Allah-Las in the same year.

The Professionals - 1-2-3

“1-2-3” was the second single released by The Professionals in October of 1980. The Professionals were formed in 1979 by Steve Jones and Paul Cook who previously played in the Sex Pistols. After Sex Pistols dissolved Jones continued with this band, while they had similarities to Sex Pistols, The Professionals featured a more Hard Rock sound. The band recorded an album in 1980, but it was not released until 1990 due to several complications, which was discussed in a post that I wrote back in June of 2011. The band went through several line up changes and released one album in 1981 entitled I Didn’t See It Coming.
