The final record of the year for our Record of the Month Club may well be our favorite reissue of the year. Numero Group once again introduces us to something totally new and under the radar with Charlie Megira’s Tomorrow’s Gone LP. The Israeli guitarist recorded seven albums worth of material in 15 years during his all-too-brief 44 trips around the sun. Tomorrow’s Gone collects 24 of these tracks for a double album journey across his career, accompanied by a lavish booklet that documents his tragic existence. Megira’s various projects put out music which began as a junction point between Link Wray’s surf guitar and the theatrical psychobilly of The Cramps, took a turn towards goth-inflected post-punk, and towards the end of his career would sojourn back into his earlier musical fascination with late 1950s and early 1960s rock ‘n’ roll.
The album was released back in October but after continuous listening in the record store we’ve decided that you all need a copy. The record retails in the shop for $27.99 but ROTM Club members are getting it at the monthly subscription cost of $25…a deal!
The record is shipping out asap and will hopefully arrive in time for some xmas morning spins.
