BenQ DC S1410

 

Billy Childish & The Headcoats 5th or 6th album from 1990.[there are so many ya know] and probably their best, one of those classic garage revival lps, my favorite. First time when I heard this stuff I thought it’s from 60’s or some other dimension. Raw garage rock action in The Kinks, Sonics, Downliners Sect style with “Mantrap”, “No Way Out”, “Reindeer Are Wild”, “Headcoat Man”, hit tune “Girl Of Matches”, “Pokerhuntus Was Her Name” [with Thee Headcoatees!], “We’re Gone”… Cover art by Daniel Claws. It’s 30th anniversary already! And remember, Don’t play with matches, dig!!!

DMZ – Relics [1977/81] Vinyl Rip!

Dmz - Relics _a

 

“Four Craig Leon-produced tracks released on BOMP which is the parent company of Voxx and five demo tapes that were recorded on four-track comprise this excellent collection. “When I Get Off” was the number two Garage Record of the Year in 1978 in Boston’s Real Paper, and it is a psychedelic masterpiece. The dueling guitars, slashing riff, and great Corraccio bass complement Mono Mann aka Jeff Connolly’s blitzkrieg vocals. Here is a slice of pyschedlia that is the fans outdoing the bands they idolize. Also, as with Willie Alexander’s demos, it seems Craig Leon did a much better job on smaller budgets. The lyrics are sexist, but fun in “Barracuda” — definitely not the Heart song — “Lift up Your Hood,” and the aforementioned “When I Get Off.” There is also a cool cover of Roky Erickson’s “You’re Gonna Miss Me” and a fantastic album jacket of the band photographed at what looks like the Rat nightclub inside a red background covered in barbed wire fence.” [AllMusic Review by Joe Viglione]

You could hear this legendary garage punk band on Surfadelic comps I put recently and here is Mr.Eliminator 360 sound vinyl rip of this classic 9 trax Bomp records comp of 1977. EP + 5 Demos. I already have posted CD version but you should try vinyl alright! This is kick ass stuff, don’t miss it!

Surfadelic Presents: Punks In Thee Garage!

punk garage 1a1x

 

This Surfadelic compilation is dedicated to 70’s & 80’s punk and new wave bands those who dared to cover some of their 60’s heroes like The Sonics, The Seeds, the Standells, The Wailers, The Kingsmen, The Music Machine, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Chocolate Watchband, The Shadows of Knight, The Doors… 

As you know many 70’s punkers were fans of 60’s mod & garage rock bands. Boston garage punkers DMZ were one of the first to dig into 60’s punk legacy. Wayne County of The Electric Chairs is a big fan of sixties garage bands, Nuggets and stuff and made maybe the definitive version of The Electric Prunes ’67 classic “I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night”. The Cramps create their whole style and career around the covers of 50’s & 60’s r-billy, trash and garage loosers. Some bands like UK The Inmates, a pub rockers which were not expected to dig US garage rock but did just that with cool cover of The Standells hit “Dirty Water”. You’re already familiar with Johnny Thunders & Patti Palladin silky cover of the Seeds “Can’t Seem To Make You Mine”. NY proto-punkers The Dictators covered “California Sun” well before their neighbors the Ramones. Bebe Buell [ya know Bebe?] sings “My Little Red Book” anyone cares? There’s an really cool cover of “I Never Loved Her” [originaly by The Starfires from Pebbles 8] by The Vogue, little known new wave group from Vienna. Todd Clark Group did a great job with Paul Revere & The Raiders hit “Hungry”. Also you can hear Hollywood Brats doin’ The Kinks’ “I Need You”, The Undertones cover of CWB classic “Let’s Talk About Girls”, Pagans with “Little Black Egg” etc. The most recent cover is from 1990. by my fav garage punkers The Devil Dogs doin’ great cover of The Shadows of Knight classic “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”. 26 trax of supercool garage-punk-new wave action Surfadelic style! Enjoy!
