My Drug Hell

These guys have definitely never gotten the recognition they deserve. They put out their debut This is My Drug Hell back in 1996, which yielded a modest college radio hit with “Girl at the Bus Stop.” For an amazing record that was, in my opinion, one of the best of that year, they should have gotten a whole lot more attention.

Fast forward to 2008, and finally there is a follow-up due sometime this year – supposedly called My Drug Hell 2 – released by a rinky-dink label called Forthesakeofthesong. I’ve heard about half of the forthcoming release and it’s really great, picking right up with their strongly 60’s influenced sound.

Here are a couple tracks, the first off the new one, and the second is one of my favorites from their debut.

Mysteries of Love

Jinx's Hole

As I dont know what rinky-dink means, I will forgive you for calling my label it! Dont know anything about blogging, but if you wanna contact me on we could talk about the new My Drug Hell release, I now have the master and we are ready to go, it will be out this autumn. It sounds amazing, and maybe you would like to post a new track from us in your blog?
