Bellyache Records - Sweet Sounds of Detroit - Vol. 2 - Coming Soon

Limited copies available today at the DIY Street Fair - Troy and Woodward, in Ferndale

Besides playing bass and guitar for the Grande Nationals and Troy Greogry's current ensemble, Scotty Hagen also runs one of the more inventive and rewarding local labels in Michigan - built around the Bellyache Candy Shoppe - Bellyache Records has already released two stalwart compilations in recent years, (along with material by the Go, Scarlet Oaks and forthcoming Swamp Sisters).

The Sweet Sounds of Detroit Vol. 1 back in 2006, captured the the city's musicians at the time of garage rock's gloaming when electro-pop, new wave and punk were becoming more accentuated; Ghoul's Delight in late 07, was an engaging, theatric affair, full of nostalgic reverence for those breathless Halloween runs through the neighborhood, dodging Frankenstein's and Wolfman's, mashing like monsters and watching House on Haunted Hill -

Now, Bellyache has returned with the Sweet Sounds Vol. 2 - available for pre-order at the Bellyache site - and coming to stores on September 30.
