June's Underappreciated Music: the links and more

The usually monthly assembly of undervalued and often nearly "lost" music, or simply music the blogger in question wants to remind you reader/listeners of...

Remembering Harlan Ellison, who died today. Among the things he introduced me to through his writing is the Louisville Orchestra First Edition Recordings seies. 1934-2018

And "splatterpunk" Steve Soto of the Adolescents and other notable bands (August 23, 1963 – June 27, 2018)

And wishing a quick recovery for Jerry House.
