”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. 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.”
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!
”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!!!

“A side project from his full-time job as singer/guitarist/songwriter for garage punk revivalists the Boss Martians, Evan Foster’s debut solo release is a textbook example of instrumental roots rock & roll six-string slinging. Heavily influenced by surf in general and Dick Dale in particular — especially on the raging “Glass Packed & Fully Stacked” — there are also more atmospheric moments to offset the rockers that dominate this set. “Venice, Late Night” is a dusky, low-key piece that incorporates elements of jazz and Spaghetti Western-style reverb, as does the lazy, windswept “Embrujada.” As their titles indicate, both “Mouthbreather” and “Meanstreak” are more directly rock-oriented. The latter is a tribute to Rory Gallagher, whose terse, tensile style also influenced Foster’s frills-free approach. No instrumental guitar album would be complete without a Venture tribute, and “Slidin'” fills the bill. “Spy on Me” adds cheap keyboards to the mix and sounds like the soundtrack to a grade B, 1960’s James Bond rip-off flick. Foster also handles bass overdubs, but some tracks don’t even utilize the instrument, and with all the frantic riffing it isn’t missed. Dave Davies’ “All Day and All of the Night” lick gets a workout on the opening to “Where Do I Stand” but the tune then transforms into a raging rocker. Foster blasts off into sci-fi territory on the spacey “Sequence Array” and “I.D. Crisis,” two of three four-track demos that sound only slightly more raw than the rest of the disc. There is even one (negligible) vocal as Foster repeatedly shouts out the title line to “I Want Some Sex” between Link Wray-styled power chords. A minor complaint is that although Foster is a remarkable stylist, he doesn’t have a sound of his own, preferring to raid the technique books of those guitarists who have walked before him. Regardless, this is a terrific and wonderfully played album, that shows Foster to be a talented, even electrifying musician, with more than one trick up his sleeve.” [Hal Horowitz]
