With “Arbuckle’s Swan Song,” Brooklyn genre-benders, Ambulance LTD, somehow teleport back to Los Angeles, circa 1975, expertly capturing a whiff of the city’s laissez-faire hedonism. Culled from the band’s New English EP, the track was included in our LA Burnout 2: Still Burnt compilation from last year.

  1. They aren’t defunct! They played an NYC show last fall, and have new tracks on myspace!

  2. good to know…thanks.noted above

  3. I think this is the only Ambulance LTD song where the lead guy didn’t sing. Bassist wrote and sang this tune – he and the drummer went on to do their own stuff:http://music.theredromance.com/music.html

    Check out the UK singles and “The Red Romance”

  4. Good to see something from ALTD. Still listen to their first album.

  5. gotta admit, i’m not digging this at all.

  6. F! I remember this song from LA Burnout 2 and I just assumed they were some obscure 70s California group. Gotta admit, I AM digging this and Grabbing New English now. Thanks again AD.

  7. was a big fan of ambulance ltd when their first album came out, highly recommend it and still put it on from time to time. nice to see AD highlight them

  8. Great stuff…reminds me alot of Big Star and their classic September Gurls. It was recently redone by a great Sydney band Circle, check it out if you have a chance.

  9. Hi, I want to download both LA Burnout playlists, but I don’t see how to download. Is it thru the eMusic link?

    Thx, great tunes!
