Miriam Linna tops Norton Records' Caravan Of Stars Revue @ Horseshoe tonight!

Don't miss ex-Cramps drummer Miriam Linna rock the mic at Norton's summer spectacular. 
If you're feeling as though this unseasonably cool summer has passed you by without a single boffo rock 'n' roll blowout, the thoughtful folks from New York's Norton Records are in Toronto to help make up for the entire lacklustre season with one sweaty night of lowdown shakin' thrills.

That's right, the Norton Records' Caravan Of Stars is stopping at The Horseshoe this evening for knockout quadruple bill featuring the decidedly demented Ding-Dongs duo of Mark "BBQ" Sultan and Bloodshot Bill, blues-wailin' Brooklyn bad boys Daddy Long Legs, Toronto's own garage-psych goomers The Green Rays, topped off at 11:30 pm by a stunning vocal turn by Norton Records honcho (and A-Bones/Cramps drummer) Miriam Linna crooning tunes from her way overdue solo debut Nobody's Baby.

The epic extravaganza will be hosted by celebrated Norton co-chief Billy Miller and feature an appropriately floor-shaking selection of vintage vinyl artefacts curated for event by DJ Chico. The heavy duty hunching gets underway promptly at 8:30 pm and tickets are just $12 at the door. Check out the swank video for Miriam's My Love Has Gone stylishly directed by Peter Zaremba of The Fleshtones followed by a couple of Daddy Long Legs performance clips and a hot number from The Ding-Dongs.

Be sure to grab a copy of Miriam's super sweet solo debut Nobody's Baby at the merch desk.

Watch the new Bad News Boys video for We Are The Champion starring Max Danger!

The album We Are The Champion by Bad News Boys (aka King Khan & BBQ) should be out next year.

"This was the first song we wrote for the album. Not necessarily the best song on the record, and not a single, but where our heads were at during the recording."

Mark 'BBQ' Sultan - vox, guitar, drums
King 'Bama Lama' Khan - vox, guitar

"Video-film created with vivid fascination in quality with the finest equipment. Another year arrived, Zondervan Bronté, film-man and musical video by Zonder, starring Zondervan Bronté, Stan Suntache, Sarah B, Sarah C, "Rashtah", tells the story of and how, through a drugged dose of tea from pioneer leader with revenge as vigilante priest. Tramp, through doors opened in third-eye of his mind-head, sees taste of fine-taste of leader of alter-ego wealth and prosperity. What will the outcome? Follow story, addict of outstanding music harmony, melody, assembled by finest THE BAD NEWS BOYS."

"A love story... of hate."

After a long, hard hiatus, it was love that finally resurrected this pioneering rock'n'roll legend.

"It's deep love and commitment to right the wrongs and bring the kids what they really need, what they deserve: true, passionate, overtly-erotic, heart-melting ROCK and ROLL!!!" - King Khan

"We give up the ghosts. If we open that portal on stage or on vinyl and you choose to step through it, we can give you release. We're like a budget Thai massage done with Ex-Lax fingers." - Mark Sultan (BBQ)
