BLUE CHEER – Louder Than God! The Best Of [Vinyl Rip!]

louder than god front

“Punks before you were a punk.”
“Hell’s Angels with instruments instead of motorcycles.”
“The band that played so loud they turned the air into cottage cheese.”

 

One of The hardest rockin’ US bands from the 60’s next to MC5, The Stooges or The Litter. First time I heard of Blue Cheer in an late 80’s interview with Mudhoney when they spoke about their influeces, garage rock, the Sonics and stuff. Later on I realised that Mudhoney are “the modern day Blue Cheer” [they stole almost everything from them].

Blue Cheer was blues based, hard rock/psych band influenced by The Cream and Hedrix, famous for their cover of “Summertime Blues”, predecessors to heavy metal and grunge. This lp collection issued in 1986. on Rhino Records [in the line of cool Rhino ”best of” comps of 60’s garage bands as The Standells, The Music Machine, Nazz, Bobby Fuller Four, Love, etc] gathers tunes from Blue Cheer’s first four albums, mostly from their legendary ’68 LPs ‘Vincebus Eruptum” and “Outside inside”. Personally, I’m not into HM but hey, this band is louder than god! Dig!!!

 

“Critics hated them, my parents hated them,
my girlfriend hated them, and even Hendrix hated them.”
