One of those legendary Cramps bootlegs recorded live at Volkshaus Zurich, Switzerland, 21 April 1986. It was great “A Date With Elvis” era tour and The Cramps rumble real hard this time with female bass player.

THE UNHOLY TRINITY – Rise to the Occasion (1985) vs THE SID PRESLEY EXPERIENCE

R-1652798-1248694793.jpeg

 

Sleeve notes:
“The Unholy Trinity rose from the ashes of The Sid Presley Experience after the split in April 1985. Despite little finance and even less encouragement the trio entered a small 8-track studio with only 2 days to record and mix these six tracks. Turning a blind eye to the difficulties of their situation The Unholy Trinity – Rise To The Occasion.”

Alright boys, you’re alredy familiar with GodfaTHErs, so in the wake of their brand new lp I wanna remind you of their predecessors Sid Presley Experience and The Unholy Trinity [well I’ve already posted Sid Presley Experience complete story on my old blog, but wtf]. Del Bartle [curently play in GodfaTHErs] and Kevin Murphy were in both bands, with “Mad Dog” Lucas in Trinity they kicked some serious ass. Explosive trax as Rock And Roll Traitor’, ‘Bad Boy’ [Larry Williams cover] or ‘Take A Chance’ [Jerry Nolan], make “Rise to the Occasion” one of the best garage punk Ep’s around so you better watch out! Sid Presley Experience come with their ’84 singles “Public Enemy Number One”, “Cold Turkey” and John Peel Session recordings, so ya gotta show some respect ok. Dig !!!

cramps-4

 

Hey kids, I wanna share with ya some really rare stuff snatched somewhere on the net long time ago. This thing shoulda be the mighty Cramps rehearsals for “Big Beat From Badsville” circa ’96. What’s interesting, one track is pretty unknown never heard before, I entitled it “A Place To Die” [pretty  creepy ha !?!] ’cause just couldn’t understand whatta hell Lux sings about [some weird shit for sure]. Anyways, there’s never enough of The Cramps stuff. So here you are Dig !!!

 

DOWNLINERS SECT – Dangerous Ground [1998]

downlinerssect1

The Downliners Sect were the ragged, rocking real deal, blasting out of England in 1964 on an early British wave that took their contemporaries the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, the Kinks, and the Pretty Things to rock and roll heights and history. But unlike their friends, the Sect stayed true to their rhythm and blues roots and the grungy glory of the two and a half minute record. Cool tracks like “Baby What’s Wrong” and “Little Egypt” gave them stardom in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway and an enduring cult
status everywhere else. Half a century later, they’re still true to those roots and still fronted by founding members Don Craine and Keith Grant. The Sect survives, and SteadyBoy is thrilled to bring this album of tracks that only saw limited release in the nineties.

Dangerous Ground presents the band true to the spirit of American blues-based rock and roll with a British twist, sounding like early Rolling Stones, had they never abandoned the raw sound of their first several albums. Speaking of the Stones, Ronnie Wood’s brother Art Wood painted the inspired Dangerous Ground cover. Blues rock gets no more authentic, no more psychedelic, no more
unrepentant than the Downliners Sect. [Rush Evan, SteadyBoy Records]

The Sect returns! But in order to venture forward they had to, first, go back. This, the first-ever US release of a Sect studio album, was actually recorded and released in Europe back in 1998, utilizing the same lineup that performed, to date, their only two live concert appearances in America, in 2001 AND 2004, respectively. I was at both shows, and they killed! Harmonica player Paul Martin left the band a few years ago, and, sadly, drummer Alan Brooks left this world recently. The band is still killin’ ’em on the homefront, and who knows? Maybe we’ll still have our chance to see them again Back in The U.S.A. (Uh-huh , EE – VUN!). Not surprisingly, the fiery Rhythm ‘n’ Blues sound of days gone by is all still there, from the Bo Diddley beatin’ rhythm section to the warm, bluesy tone of the slide guitar. Apart from a nod to their Skiffle roots, “Working on The Railroad,” this is an otherwise all-originals collection, and their songwriting skills are as strong as ever. There’s been another studio LP, not yet available in the states, but this is easily their best studio effort since “Showbiz,” the band’s comeback album and call to arms, not against, but with, the pub and punk rock bands they inspired. “Dangerous Ground” is just a great album, whether you’re already a fan, or whether you only know them through Billy Childish, who picked up much of his sound, dress sense and Snagglepuss phraseology from the Sect, or if you’ve never heard ’em at all but know the blues don’t have to be a drag, and Rock ‘n’ Roll does’nt need to sag. Their work here is fun. My work here is done. Exit, stage right!(GUEST REVIEW BY JOHN BATTLES)

The Sect strikes again! This time with their best slab since 60’s freakbeat classics. Raw garagey Rhythm’n’Blues mixed with pub rock, reminds me on DR.Feelgood early stuff but it’s kinda… Dangerous! Fav tunes: Keep On Rocking, Escape From Hong Kong, Dangerous Ground, Little Queenie (C. Berry), I Just Want To Make Love To You (W.Dixon), Daemon Lover,Midnight ShiftDig !!!

 

TINA PEEL – Pajama Party! [Rudi’s pre-Fuzztones new wave/punk band]

Tina Peel 1

”Bubblegum-Punk band, formed in 1976. Rudi says, that this band was heavily influenced by The Monkees, Cryan’ Shames, 1910 Fruitgum Company and Dave Clark 5.[1] It is also Rudi’s first band, where he performed as frontman. Rudi wrote or co-wrote the majority of the original material recorded by Tina Peel with then members Deb O’Nair, Jim Nastix and Jackson Plugs. Dave U. Hall (ex-bassist from Birdland with Lester Bangs) replaced Jim Nastix after his tenure with the band. Dave went under the name Rick O’Shea. Soon, they became a popular NYC attraction, often headlining the major clubs of the time (Hurrah, Irving Plaza, Ritz, CBGB), as well as appearing on several television shows, including the cult favorite, The Uncle Floyd Show. Even though the band was courted by major labels, and enjoyed frequent press, Tina Peel broke up when members Rudi Protrudi and Deb O’Nair went on to form The Fuzztones in 1980.”

Tina Peel x300

Rudi’s pre-Fuzztones, Garage/New Wave band that reminds pretty much on UK’s The Revillos, 60’s influenced trash-punk rockers, which is pretty cool. Anyways interesting stuff for Rudi’s fans. Dig!

THE METROS – st [1999] + 7″s

The Metros

”A uni-rhythmic blast of treble, the Metros’ sole album release personifies teenage garage punk. Although the album is slightly more produced than the rest of the Rip Off catalog, it still qualifies as lo-fi. Lead singer Dave Zonca’s masculine howl rages over a consistent rhythm and amped-up guitar wankery. This album’s topical relevance is aimed at the drunken and the horny mostly, but it is slightly intelligent. The opening track, “Black Leather,” is a convoluted cry for help, and a rockin’ punk number at the same time. Other standout tracks include the glammy “Lay It on Me”, the desperate “No More”, “Stop My Heart”, “Venus In Her Eyes” and “White Boy/ Black Love” which is reminiscent of the Dead Boys. Overall, a great album for garage punk fans, and a standout in the Rip Off catalog.”

Killer garage punk slab for Dead Boys fans… and others. Dig!!!
