Closet Fiends - Heroinsomnia
I suppose if you wanted to tag today's song you could say that this is genuine street punk. Briefly, Sam Sadowski, disillusioned with her life in Austin, Texas, took off and via freight trains and hitched lifts ended up homeless and broke in San Francisco.
Whilst Sam was travelling the country, her mother uploaded a video onto Youtube of her performing a song and this was spotted by a mightily impressed Scott Sturgeon (of Leftover Crack fame). Enlisting the help of Nofx frontman Fat Mike, they tracked down Sam and the end result was a 5 track ep which has just been released under the name Closet Fiends, on Fat Wreck Chords.

Heartfelt, acoustic and a thing of beauty, this is Heroinsomnia....
