Once Upon a Time
From the early days of the British invasion, on through the advent of more lightweight (yet no less great) groups like the Archies, to power pop bands like the Nerves and their progeny (Plimsouls, Beat, Starjets, and the whole Good Vibrations family of bands), history is rife with bands who wrote deceptively simple, yet eminently memorable, tunes that leave you with little choice but to chew out the rhythm on your bubblegum. In other words, bands that played simple pop songs capturing the true spirit of rock n roll: having a good time at all costs. It shouldn't be hard to make a record like this, but evidently it is, because no one has made a pop record that captures the feeling of all of those classic pop records as well as "Love Always Wins" does in years. Tunes like "My Iy Iy" and "Photobooth" are straight up bubblegum that would sound at home on a Buddha Records compilation. Others like "Bound to Cry" and the title track are sterling examples of the late 70's power pop sound at its best. Then there's the surprisingly hard rocking tune called, appropriately enough, "Let Me Rock" which, is a total affirmation of a life spent digging through discount bins for musical gold. "Let Me Rock" might be the only song that directly mentions record collecting, but all of these songs sound like they're being played by people with a real knowledge of, and love for, the spirit of rock n roll.

Brought on together by brothers Tom and John Jorgensen in 1992, the vintage rock of The Swingin' Neckbreakers debuted in their hometown of Trenton, New Jersey with Don Snook on guitar. Along with Tom taking on the bass and vocal duties while John handling the drums, the three piece comfortably set themselves amongst the trash rock company of Southern Culture On The Skids, The Lyres, Flat Duo Jets and The Wooglers. Immediately signing to Telstar Records, the Neckbreakers debuted with the single "Diggin' A Grave," followed by their first album Live For Buzz in 1993. Following a European tour and a number of singles that were released on various labels throughout 1994, The Neckbreakers' second album Shake Break came out the next year on Telstar. After Don Snook's departure from the band in 1996, Jeffery Lee Jefferson eventually filled in on guitar and debuted on the 1997 album Kick Your Ass. ~ Mike DaRonco, All Music Guide

The Hollies - Stay With The Hollies + In The Hollies Style

Named not, as is popularly thought, after Buddy Holly, but after the Christmas 1962 holly decorating the house of founding member Graham Nash (later to find even greater fame with Crosby, Stills, and Young), the Hollies were nothing if not adaptable. The grinning beat pop and "pap-pap-she-waddy-wops" of "Stay" through to the folky overtures of "I've Got a Way of My Own" (like an estrogen-free version of the Mamas and the Papas) were obviously marvelous and yet entirely generic responses to the overriding cultural dominance of the Beatles and Bob Dylan (the latter of whose songs the band devoted an entire album to in 1968, Hollies Sing Dylan, precipitating Graham Nash's departure). But much the same thing can be said for the majority of their peers. Still, the 1960s were a golden age for the Hollies, and to hear the Graham Gouldman-penned "Bus Stop", "Carrie Anne" (part Kinks, part Beach Boys, part calypso), or the sweet-shop bubblegum of "Jennifer Eccles" is to be reacquainted with a sunny lost world of short skirts, Mini Coopers, and policemen on bicycles.

This New York City-based psychedelic/garage rock combo played a large role in the mostly underground '60s revival during the 1980s. Led by the enigmatic Rudi Protrudi, the Fuzztones were one of the major "successes" (particularly in Europe) of the revival that flourished in 1984 and that also boasted the Chesterfield Kings, the Cynics, the Miracle Workers, and Plasticland. Their debut studio LP, Lysergic Emanations, was released in 1985. Thanks to praise from Ian Astbury of the Cult, the newly refitted Los Angeles-based Fuzztones were one of the few to get a major-label deal, and a second album, In Heat, was released by Beggars Banquet in 1989. Due to the album's lackluster sales performance, the Fuzztones went back to the indies. That might have been the end of the story, but it wasn't. Thanks to a hugely successful tour of Europe in 1985, the group built a loyal and dedicated fan base there, and one version or another of the Fuzztones has toured there regularly ever since. At this point, their over 25-year career has yielded at least a dozen or more albums, countless singles, and several videos, and Lysergic Emanations has been re-released by at least three different labels over the years. ~ Matt Carlson & Steve Leggett, All Music Guide

THE RIP CHORDS - Hey Little Cobra and Other Hot Rod Hits REUP

THE RIP CHORDS - Hey Little Cobra and Other Hot Rod Hits REUP BY REQUEST
@ 320 kbps - Covers are included
1. Hey Little Cobra 2. Here I Stand 3. The Queen 4. 409 5. Trophy Machine 6. Gone 7. Little Deuce Coupe 8. '40 Ford Time 9. She Thinks I Still Care 10. Shut Down 11. Drag City 12. Ding Dong 13. Karen 14. Bunny Hill 15. Don't Be Scared
The Rip Chords were essentially a false front behind which lurked future Beach Boy Bruce Johnston and Byrds/Paul Revere & The Raiders producer Terry Melcher. "Hey Little Cobra," a wimpier-than-usual hotrod record that benefits from Johnston and Melcher's full-bodied vocals, was their first big hit, generating a first album filled with unnecessary Beach Boys/Jan & Dean covers (four of 'em, plus an instrumental that basically rips off "Little Deuce Coupe") and a pretty good Melcher/Johnston, Spector-in-drag car tune, "Trophy Machine."
Much more intriguing is their guitar-heavy non-automotive material. "Here I Stand," their first single, updates Wade Flemons's 1959 Chicago R&B cha-cha with piercing, fruity falsetto and some vicious, loud guitar. "The Queen," which sadly isn't about a hotrodding RuPaul--she's a stuck-up Sting Ray driver--is vintage Dion goosed by queasy heights of falsetto. "Gone" sounds like the Isley Brothers' "Shout" with more tuff guitar, while "Ding Dong" is a doo-wop anticipation of "I Fought the Law." Post-album single/bonus track "Don't Be Scared" combines the Beach Boys' "Little Honda" and "Dance Dance Dance" with heavy fuzz. "She Thinks I Still Care," the Dickey Lee/George Jones country classic, is sped up Four Seasons-style with shredding guitar. And "Karen" (featuring the fabulous pun "I'm a fool for Karen") spices a mild Buddy Holly tune with killer destructo guitar from some anonymous L.A. Wrecking Crew stalwart. Fascinating genre-bending experiments, sadly never followed up. --Ken Barnes

2008 CD Sight And Sound release from the New Wave legends features the excellent Unlocked DVD that documents the Cars' amazing career with plenty of live footage plus a CD that features 14 live tracks from Ric, Ben and the boys. As leaders of the Boston music scene in the mid-to-late '70s, The Cars knack for sharp and snappy melodies earned them a following with New Wave, Rock and Top 40 fans. As the band progressed, those melodies were matched by imaginative production, inventive arrangements and an even larger, more devoted following. They don't build 'em like this anymore.

The HEAVY - The House That Dirt Built

The HEAVY - The House That Dirt Built

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included
1. The House That Dirt Built 2. Oh No! Not You Again! 3. How You Like Me Now 4. Sixteen 5. Short Change Hero 6. No Time 7. Long Way From Home 8. Cause For Alarm 9. Love Like That 10. What You Want Me To Do? 11. Stuck
In Noid, a tiny hamlet situated to the south west of Bath, some of the most dangerous and ill sounding beats and riffs are being created by four wolf like personalities. The Heavy started out ripping and chopping beats from the likes of Bo Diddley, Little Walter and The Parliaments and fusing them with their now patented brand of high grade dirt. Guitar riffs that intoxicate, bass lines that reverberate around your head like a King Jammy dream and vocals that will challenge any of the genres they decide to take on. Simply Brilliant!

Specializing in the early-'70s proto-punk sounds of the Stooges and the New York Dolls as well as select N.Y.C. punkers from the '70s (Ramones, Dead Boys), the Dallas, TX, quintet the Mullens packs quite a punch. Formed in the mid-'90s and comprised of frontman Tim Stile, guitarist Matt Mayo, bassist Dana Williams, and drummer Rod Baird, the band's three albums -- 1997's self-titled debut, 99's Go Where the Action Is, and 2001's Tough to Tell -- were all issued on the Get Hip label, receiving favorable reviews in such well-respected punk publications as Maximum Rock and Roll and Flipside. ~ Greg Prato, All Music Guide
