R@M0#E$ – !t’$ Al!^e [Vinyl Rip!]

ramones-its-alive

 

”This amphetamine-paced double-LP served as a Ramones career retrospective, smack at their peak, and shows the Queens crew almost stumbling across hardcore around the same time California was inventing it. Over four nights in 1977 at London’s Rainbow Theater, the punk pioneers blasted through 28 songs from their first three albums. (Thanks to their tidily short length, they squeezed in nearly all of ’em.) The final LP version came mostly from the last night, charged with an energy so electric that fans are said to have ripped seats from the floor and thrown them at the stage in enthusiasm. It’s no surprise, as the entire record pulses with American punk’s promise, a spittle-spewing Joey Ramone barely pausing between “Pinhead,” “Do You Wanna Dance?” and “Chain Saw.” He even barely pauses long enough to get out all the lyrics, the band buzzing away behind him like they’re in a machine shop. During post-production, the speed was something with which even the band itself struggled to keep up. In his book, Hey Ho, Let’s Go: The Story of the Ramones, Everett True writes that Dee Dee needed extra fuel to record bass overdubs: an extra-heavy helping of black coffee.” Arielle Castillo

Ahh, sweet memories of teenage years. This was the first R@M0#E$ lp I’ve bought in ’84. while in highschool. It was a time when I was headbanging to the beat of The Clash, The Stranglers, Buzzcocks, Undertones, Blondie, Pistols, Dead Kennedys … It’s a West German issue that was most easier to find in Europe back then. I know you’re over stuffed with R@M0#E$ stuff but then again… they are my no.1 favorite band and this is one of the best live rock lps and Surfadelic vinyl rip is far superior to CD version you can find out there. So… 1-2-3-4 … Dig!!!

BLUE CHEER – Blitzkrieg Over Nüremberg [Live in Germany 1988]

Blitzkrieg Front

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!
