“Punks before you were a punk.”
“Hell’s Angels with instruments instead of motorcycles.”
“The band that played so loud they turned the air into cottage cheese.”
One of The hardest rockin’ US bands from the 60’s next to MC5, The Stooges or The Litter. First time I heard of Blue Cheer in an late 80’s interview with Mudhoney when they spoke about their influeces, garage rock, the Sonics and stuff. Later on I realised that Mudhoney are “the modern day Blue Cheer” [they stole almost everything from them].
Blue Cheer was blues based, hard rock/psych band influenced by The Cream and Hedrix, famous for their cover of “Summertime Blues”, predecessors to heavy metal and grunge. This lp collection issued in 1986. on Rhino Records [in the line of cool Rhino ”best of” comps of 60’s garage bands as The Standells, The Music Machine, Nazz, Bobby Fuller Four, Love, etc] gathers tunes from Blue Cheer’s first four albums, mostly from their legendary ’68 LPs ‘Vincebus Eruptum” and “Outside inside”. Personally, I’m not into HM but hey, this band is louder than god! Dig!!!
“Critics hated them, my parents hated them,
my girlfriend hated them, and even Hendrix hated them.”
“Long lost, meticulously-sought out jewels of hard rock and heavy psych/prog from the ’60s and ’70s glory days.
The first release in the Archives of Acid is a fourteen-track collection of the best, rarest singles from Ohio’s rich history of rock, spanning 1970 to 1977. It traverses grungy hard rock with Big Blue and Travis, epic rock with Myth Band and proto-punk with Erving Forbush and Dry Ice.
Also along for the ride is some heavy funk (Cincinnati Joe) and Southern rock from Zachariah. And that’s not all, give it a spin to see what other delights are in store…” [Archives of Acid]
Yep! Another collection of 70’s hard rock/proto-punk rarities in style of Bonehead Crunchers-Freaks comps you alredy dig here on Surfadelic. This stuff I dug from Archives of Acid bandcamp and made some sound cleaning/fixing, so you can get it in the best possible shape. Well Ohio… here we go, Dig!!!
’14 HIGH OCTANE AND FRENZIED TALES OF BOOZED UP HICKS, CHICKS, DROP OUTS AND SKUNKS SYPHONED FROM VARIOUS NORTH AMERICAN OIL DUMPS OF ILL-REPUTE’ – Belter Records (known from the ‘Bonehead Crunchers’ and ‘Ultimate Bonehead’ series) has been rampaging obscure nooks and crannies of North America to uncover a selection of frenetic screamers and high velocity tales of hellraising and beer swilling with fast driving stoners trying to catch even faster moving girls. If you can imagine a rockabilly outgrowth updated through a grinder operated by Keith Richards and Rob Tyner, you have an idea of what to expect. This LP merges rock’n’roll, late garage and budding proto punk in an endless orgy of high energy stupidity. The contents are mainly from the late ’60s and early ’70s, so if you like Flamingo- era Groovies or ever wanted to hear a more rural MC5, this one is for you!

“14 Ferocious Crunchers and Visceral Heavy Thudders Excavated from the Doldrums of the North American Suburban Wilderness”
So we are finally back under the Bonehead banner still crunching and ultimate but no longer bound to any notion of a future series. We have come not only to praise Bonehead but to bury it at the same time. Herein you will find an abundance of heavy Psych monstrosities, numbskull shredders and dastardly inducements to follow Satan or in once instance, his direct opposite… It’s loud, proud and hopefully great fun to enjoy while you attempt to keep control of your bladder functions.
Even more Boneheads at Surfadelic. Anarcho satanic garage hard rock/psych on limited 300 vinyl. For fans of Blue Cheer and others. Sick shit. Say… Dig !!!
Yeah right, you’re not hallucinate, your wildest, wettest dream is commin’ true. Here are more Boneheads for yer ever hungry hard rockin’ soul. They just keep gettin’ better and better. Brutalising heavy garage proto-punk fever across USA ’69-76. Ripped from very limited [only 300] vinyl just fer ya. It’s Ultimate, Dig!!!
Hot Damn! Here are more REAL COOL garage-biker-hard-rockin’ boogie fuzzed-up loosers, in the same vein as ”Bonehead Crunchers”. Prepare yourself for more rare late 60’s/mid 70’s fuzz-munchin’, teeth-gnashing workouts from USA. If you dig stuff like Ron Asheton’s New Order, MC 5 or Blue Cheer, this is fer ya. Ripped from very limited vinyl elpees. Hard & Heavy, get down ‘n’ Dig!!!
Look folks, I don’t dig heavy metal no way, no no [except Motorhead when I’m in a “Killer” mode] but BLUE CHEER proto-metal is my weakness. Their first two ’68 slabs are hard rock/garage-psych jewels standing shoulder to shoulder with MC5 & Stooges power stuff. This here is pretty fine live ’88 recordings with new line-up: Duck MacDonald lead guitar/vocals, Dave Salce on drums and only original member Dickie Peterson on bass guitar & vocals. They ”surf” through some Blue Cheer’s classic stuff as Just A Little Bit, Out Of Focus, Babylon, Doctor Please & Summertime Blues and couple of solid 80’s tunes. There are some great guitar fireworks worthy of an Leigh Stephens. Say… Blitz!
