ROB SEZ: Yup, it's happened again: the old North Carolina music mafia has gone and done its nostalgia-indulging thing, and here's an audio souvenir from the proceedings. In recent months, there were more reunion shows by the 1970's-era Chapel Hill band Sneakers and the even older (!) Winston-Salem garage/bedroom combo Little Diesel. Chris Stamey & Mitch Easter were the ringleaders of Sneakers, while Bob Northcott fronted Little Diesel (with Peter Holsapple and Will Rigby in the band). Muchas gracias to Larry T. for the Motorco videos, from which I ripped the audio, and Daniel J. for the two tracks from this year's Hopscotch Fest (photo below).
