This is one of my favorite compilation lp’s I bought in the early 90’s. It’s a collection of singles issued by famous BOMP records in 70’s & 80’s featuring classic Power Pop & Punk acts as Plimsouls, 20-20, Flamin’ Groovies, Shoes, Surf Trio, Barracudas, Stiv Bators, Jeff Dahl, DMZ, Sky Saxon & SS-20, Zeros and Iggy & The Stooges. The concept is: first side power pop, the other side – garage punk, just simple as that and pressed on blue translucent vinyl. Already have posted it on my old blog and here it comes again. Some KILLER STUFF indeed. Dig!!!

“Have some gritty rock chop with your pop!”
Two of the very best garage punk albums from the beginning of 21st century. On their 5th and 6th Lp [2002/03], North-West surfers change their style to a harder rockin’ power pop sound influenced by the 60’s acts as Small Faces, The Who, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Sonics and 70’s bands like Cheap Trick, Elvis Costello or Ramones. Non stop guitars/organ driven rockin’ action with tunes like She Moves Me, Making The Rounds, Dreaming In Stereo, My Love Ain’t Free, Every Girl In Town or r’n’r radio hits as I Am Your Radio, Kill My Telephone, I Wanna Be Your Addiction, He’ll Be Around from “The Set-Up” lp. Already have posted this stuff before but hey… This is A MUST !!!

”I don’t care who you are,
Cause I’m the man with a star on the car!
Bad mother fu*cker!”
Third in a row of Davie Allan 90’s comeback albums (after ”Loud Loose and Savage” and ”Fuzz Fest”). 14 cuts of cinematic mosrite fuzzbox guitar-sound driven instros. Not so surfin’ but rather a modern garage rockin’ sounding instro venture influenced by Henri Mancini, Morricone and yeah!, ’60s & ’70s biker flicks. Loads of cool stuff begin with fuzzed-out drama ‘‘Space Rift” and then you got ”Fender Bender”, ” Encounter”, moto-bikin’ ”Another Moped In Schenectady”, ”Fast And Loose”, floatin’ fuzz lounge of ”Organized” and couple of re-recorded Allen 60’s tunes as wah-wah pedal mutated ”Theme From The Unknown”. This stuff is almost identical to ”The Arrow Dynamic Sounds of… ” album issued on Total Energy rec. but with different track order and few different tunes. Bykadelics at Surfadelic, Dig!!!
”Modern instrumental rock album with lots of cool fuzz guitar”

“Gonna take a week off, Gonna go to Hell
Send ya a postcard, Hey I’m doin’ swell!
Wish you were here, Aloha from Hell…”
Hell yeah! This Surfadelic collection is dedicated to my favorite band and 30th anniversary of being ‘Cramped’. The story goes somethin’ like this: Way back in 1988. my then girlfriend gave me an audio casette of some new wave/punk comp. with Joy Division, Dead Kennedys, Killing Joke and stuff, but baby… When “Human Fly” buzz blasted outta speakers I was knocked out & down. As a huge fan of horror, b movies and punk rock, I was won over by The CRAMPS and they soon became my fav band next to Ramones.
First lp I heard was “A Date With Elvis” with legendary killer tunes as ‘Can Your Pussy Do The Dog’, ‘What’s Inside A Girl’, ‘How Far Can Too Far Go’, ‘Aloha From Hell’… but the first album I owned was now a classic “Stay Sick!” ’89 lp. ‘God Damn Rock & Roll’, ‘Bikini Girls With Machine Guns’, ‘All Women Are Bad’, ‘The Creature From The Black Leather Lagoon’ were the hit tunes for the ‘New Cramped Generation’. This comp. gathers my favorite Cramps tunes from their more glamorous second [‘bass phase’] period from 1986. to 2003. and their final album “Fiends Of Dope Island”. I know you already have everything by The Cramps but hey… This is ‘Surfadelic Jungle’, alright! Let’s Get F*cked Up, Dig!!!
Two garage punk bands, two killer debut slabs. The Devil Dogs were a New York band influenced by 60’s garage rock and 70’s punk of Ramones, DMZ, The Dictators, New york Dolls… This is vinyl rip of their classic ’89 debut lp on Crypt records, a mix of great original tunes as Action, 354, C’mon Little Baby, Gimme That Girl, Brand New Chevy and fine covers of DMZ [Ball Me Out], The Dictators [Stay With Me], Ramones [Babysitter] or Thee Mighty Caesars [Suck The Dog, Pussywhipped].
The Swingin’ Neckbreakers from Trenton, New Jersey, are in the same vein with little more influences from the 60’s garage rock and 50’s r&b, trash and r’n’r and 70’s punk/power pop of The Real Kids, Flamin’ Groovies and 80’s garage revivalists as Lyres. They can best be described as kinda like a cross between The Sonics and Ramones! Their ’93 debut “Live For Buzz” on Telstar records opens with great garage punk stomper “You” followed up with cool covers of Lord Luther’s ’59 r&b “Thinkin’ Man’s Girl” and garage legends The Squires “Same All Over The World”. Other cool tunes are originals “Take Your Life”, “Little Pink Medicine” and “I Live For Buzz” and killer covers of The Kinks “I Took My Baby Home”, Tony Sheridan “Shake It Some More” and The Sonics “Boss Hoss”. I already have posted these slabs before on my old blog but hey!… This is A MUST!
”Thee Headcoats Sect, a creature with the body of a beast and the hat of a gentleman.”
Already have posted these two slabs, my favorites from 90s garage punk revival and here they are again. Logical & natural, almighty colaboration between the Downliners Sect and their ‘modern days’ garage punk counterparts Thee Headcoats must be a ‘dreams come true’ event for fans of raw r&b/punk sound. And it is!
’96 Lp “Deerstalking Men” is a perfect junction of 60’s The Sonics/Downliners Sect garage rock sound and Thee Headcoats raw punk rumble with faithful remakes of classics as Strychnine, The Witch, Baby What’s Wrong, Why Don’t You Smile Now and probably best versions of some old Billy Chilish/Headcoats/Mighty Caesars tunes like My Dear Watson, Troubled Times, Cowboys Are Square, Lie Detector, I’m A Gamekeeper. Second album “Ready Sect Go!” is kinda spectacular tribute to R&B classics as Howlin’ Wolf, Slim Harpo, Bo Diddley, Muddy Waters… a must for garage blues aficionados and others. ‘Elementary my dear Watson’, Dig!!!
”Thee Headcoats was a band formed in Chatham, Kent, England in 1989, that was well known for its garage rock sound, explicitly sticking to this style on almost all of their albums. The band’s signature sound as well as their prolific writing has been attributed to Billy Childish’s love of simple, direct recording. The band has been on multiple labels including Billy’s own Hangman Records, Damaged Goods, Sub Pop and Crypt records. The band was composed of Billy Childish (guitar and vocals), Bruce Brand (drums and backing vocals), and Johnny Johnson (bass). The band is the most prolific of Childish’s many musical projects so far, releasing 14 full-length albums.” [wiki]
This is 2nd lp by Thee Headcoats. Raw R&B inluenced garage punk, mix of rumblin’ originals Round Every Corner, The Killing Hold, I’m A Headcoat Baby, Alone, My 7th Girl Eve, Going Outside My Head… and covers of The Seeds [No Escape], Chuck Berry [Our Little Rendezvous, Jaguar And Thunderbird] and Link Wray [Branded].
