The other day I added a couple of tracks from Post Stardom Depression front man Jeff Angell’s newest band, The Missionary Position, to the South Sound Mix Tape. Then I took Angell up on his invite to check his trio out at Tacoma rock club Station 56 on Sunday.

TMS was kind of a square peg on an XIL records bill topped by the massively aggro Church of Hate. But Angell and company held their own, delivering swaggering, bluesy versions of several cuts from their “Diamonds in a Dead Sky” album, sans the drum loops and horns you’ll hear on the CD (though Angell says they perform the songs that way, too, depending on the venue.)

But enough jibba jabba. My favorite cut was called “Why Me? Why Now?”



The audio quality is a little better on this one, which is called “Let’s Start a Fire.”

An how ’bout a pretty ballad to finish? This is album opener “All My Mistakes.”
