Though they only released a handful of songs during their two-year lifetime, Black Tambourine has been hugely influential in the world of indie music. Conceived of as an explicitly pop band at a time when such bands were pretty rare in America, Black Tambourine wore their influences on their sleeves: The Jesus & Mary Chain, of course, but also folks like Phil Spector, Smokey Robinson, Love, The Ramones, Shop Assistants, The Pastels, 14 Iced Bears, Orange Juice and the list goes on.
Vol. 1 Brooklyn is a culture blog for the literary-minded. The site was created and is maintained by Jason Diamond with help from several regular and semi-regular contributors.
Monday Night (sometimes other nights) Vinyl Club is New York City's finest “you bring, you spin it” open deck DJ party hosted by DJ Doppler (Brett of The Mugs) & DJ Okay (Naomi, Cantaloupe Alone).
