“Thee BEST Punk Rock collection of the 21st century! Mostly consist of my favorite U.K. & U.S. punk groups from 70’s & 80’s, there are few from Australia [The Victims, Fun Things] and one from EU [The Kids from Belgium]. Some of these stuff are more high-octane rock’n’roll than punk [anyway, the attitude is right] but that’s the way I like it and that’s the way it is. Feel Lucky Punk? Dig!!!

“Between the Lines” compiles, for the first time ever, all the original songs written by Groovies Cyril Jordan and Chris Wilson in the classic second version of the band. The Groovies gave themselves a major reboot in 1971 when a then 18-year-old Chris Wilson replaced Roy Loney as the band’s frontman and Cyril Jordan’s writing partner. This was the formation of the group that made that journey to England at the behest of UA, helping set the scene for punk and which, with a couple of line-up changes along the way, ended up signing to Sire Records and making three brilliant albums – Shake Some Action, Now, and Jumpin’ In The Night – before eventually running out of steam following Wilson’s departure in 1981. It’s the incarnation that headlined over the Ramones in London on July 4 1976 in London, but which then had to settle for being a massive influence on the nascent form of both power pop and all manner of ’60s influenced groups after the dictates of a post-punk world decide after the dictates of a post-punk world decided that their glorious rock’n’roll was not going to be the next big thing.”
From time to time I must put some Groovies stuff even know many of you already have loads of their outputs, but hey! they are my favs alright! Check this real cool newly remastered collection, best sounding Groovies stuff yet!

An unreleased album recorded for Polydor around 1980, finally released in 2010 by Sing Sing Records. Protex was a band from Belfast and formed 1977 after a Clash and they released four nice 7Inches and are on numerous compilations. The band was greatly influenced by The Clash and took their original name, Protex Blue, from an album track on The Clash’s eponymous debut album. The band did not realise the Clash song was about condoms. They toured much. opened for the Boomtown Rats on their UK tour and on further tours in America and Canada in 1980. Protex’s final release for Polydor was the single A Place In Your Heart, after which they were dropped by the label.
These irish pop punkers sound to me like a mod revival version of Ramones. So, if ya dig stuff like The Undertones, Ramones, Buzzcocks or The Clash check ’em out!
“First time release of 21 live in the studio 1973 demo recordings from this influential NYC combo all from master tapes! Dig these primal studio demos of NY Dolls original classics like ‘Looking For A Kiss’ and ‘Personality Crisis’ and wild covers like Gary US Bonds’ ‘Seven Day Weekend’ and Chuck Berry’s ‘Back In The USA,’ all served up as only the Dolls ever could — with enough raunchy romp and stomp to start a riot! These spring ’73 sessions showcase the young band for the first time with drummer Jerry Nolan and feature the mauling antics of late, great guitar legend Johnny Thunders.”
“A Hard Night’s Day is a recording that better captures the sound of the New York Dolls as they record direct to tape, live on the floor, one-take versions of their repertoire (including covers), as a demo for their first album. This one night of instant demo-ing is what is represented on this recording and it was made to present to Mercury Records and to their eventual producer Rundgren so they could select what songs to put on that first record. The result is a great sounding document that was loose, sloppy and clear, a major improvement, in my opinion. Unfortunately, it was a little too sloppy for official release, but it has the added interest of listening to the between song chatter amongst the band members (mainly Johansen). Just sweaty, raw rock’n’roll, like it should be!”
