On October 19, Dromedary Records released a career retrospective from New York’s The Mommyheads. Finest Specimens contains 21 of the best Mommyheads songs, including previously unreleased live recordings, recently remastered tracks from the Flying Suit and Bingham’s Hole CDs, a stunning live version of the classic “Needmore, PA” from their 2010 Swedish tour, and the hauntingly beautiful “When The Sun Breaks” – the band’s first new recording in two years.
To celebrate the release, the boys are playing a special show Friday night, October 22nd, at Maxwell’s; part of Dromedary Records CMJ Showcase with labelmates Stuyvesant, Shirk Circus and Jenifer Convertible!
