Bobby and the Soft Spots - Can't get her off 7"
Click here because we lost a good man

Bobby Ubangi aka Benjamin Jay Womack was a regular in the Atlanta Rock N' Roll scene. Most folks will know him from his work in the Gaye Blades, a girl group inspired band he was in with his best friend Jared Swilley of the Black Lips. Besides that he was in a number of bands, most notably The Lids.

After hearing the GB's I ventured to find out more about Mr. Ubangi and learned that he was diagnosed with cancer. Fuck! I hate that disease more than anything because it seems to claim everyone at some point.

This seven inch was originally released as a benefit with all proceeds going toward his mounting medical bills. I picked up a few copies as soon as they were available.

This time he goes by the moniker of Bobby and the Soft Spots and baby, it's damn good! If you like Rock N' Roll, you should really contact his labels Die Slaughterhaus and Rob's House Records to purchase his last release: Inside the mind of Bobby Ubangi.
