For "Las Vegas Story", the Club won over guitarist Kid Congo Powers from the Cramps and Patricia Morrison (the Bags) on bass. A true gem of an album when it was released in 1984, it's re-release on cd is a must for anyone even mildly curious about The Gun Club. Jeffrey Lee Pierce's unique, emotional, and beautifully discordant vocal style is showcased perfectly by the mainly Pierce-penned lyrics and musicians in this line-up.The cover of Gerschwin's "My Mans Gone", will fail to move you only if you are made of stone, but the rest is guitar-led with instantly memorable rhythms, perfectly complemented by Kid Congo's slide and lead.

Gun Club - Fire of Love

Cool Drink of Water Blues 11. Goodbye Johnny Tribal psychobilly blues is the best way to describe Gun Club's energetic death rock, but the band's career seemed doomed from the get-go due to leader Jeffrey Lee Pierce's reputation as an unreliable wildman, and well-publicized bouts of drunkenness dogged him throughout his career. Formed in Los Angeles in the early '80s, the band was vaguely aligned with similarly roots-inspired groups like X and the Blasters, but later picked up and relocated to the Lower East Side, resting more comfortably around the New York downtown set and Pierce's mentors, Debbie Harry and Chris Stein. Their 1981 debut, Fire of Love, was a punk-blues hybrid -- intense energy fueled Pierce's exorcism-in-progress delivery and the band's (Ward Dotson, guitar; Rob Ritter, bass; and Terry Graham, drums) frenetic style. ~ Denise Sullivan, All Music Guide

12. Mystery Girl
13. One Step Closer to You

While the Pacific Northwest may now be quite renowned as a hotbed of rock & roll activity, Portland, OR's the Miracle Workers were wowing the kids with a gigantic, no-holds-barred rock sound that borrowed more from the Sonics and the Wailers than from Hendrix. After a couple of EPs in this vein, Greg Shaw of Bomp! Records recorded them for a less-barbaric but equally aggressive and very fast record, Inside Out, which reigns as the Miracle Workers' most fully realized effort. After numerous members departed, the band shifted its sound yet again, accommodating a penchant for Stooges/MC5-style blitzkrieg. The band finally disbanded after the release of 1991's Roll Out the Red Carpet. ~ Matt Carlson, All Music Guide

These Canucky guys are not ashamed of their influences (the SONICS, all the 'Back From The Grave' one-hit wonders and the CHESTERFIELD KINGS), and attitude, with the rip/snarl of 'No Thanks For Nothing' and 'She Gives It Up' , the finger-poppin' yelp of 'Born Full Grown' and "Stuck In My Head", and the slow crash and burn of tracks like 'Red Boots' and 'She Loves Me'. True to form, the Midways have larded this cd of frantic originals with a pair of seemly covers, pure Sixties fuzz-crud staples 'A Girl Like You' and 'E.S.P.' If these don't show you how to respect your betters and behave in decent company, then nothing can! So after a long wait, now's your chance to hear the latest Midways discus in its gloriously complete fullness. Get ready for some of the wyldest organ driven, fuzz-drenched beat-punk to come out of Canada ever since those glory days of the incredible GRUESOMES.

Quiet Please...The New Best of Nick Lowe looks back across the hit heavy career of one of pop music's most influential statesmen. As the bassist and songwriter for Brinsley Schwartz Lowe played a key role in the British pub rock movement of the 1970s and through his stint as house producer at Stiff Records he would help draw the blueprint for the modern indie rock label. His rough hewn production work for The Damned, Elvis Costello and The Pretenders primed the pumps for the arrival of punk and new wave. More recently Lowe has cemented his status as an artisan of americana soul with solo albums like The Convincer and At My Age.
The 49-track handpicked set chronicles original compositions from all phases of Lowe's career and exists as the new definitive best of collection for this oft-described 'songwriter's songwriter.'

11. Living For the Show
12. Fuck Rock N Roll
The Divine Brown are a snarling Rock n Roll tag team, a sleek smart crew who plan an adrenalised ... Full Descriptionrush of powerful guitar noise with no apologies. They hit the stage and it sounds awesome. Stomping anthems, big fat hooks, a bike chain wielding mob swagger and confidence that can take any room. They hook up the timeless cool of a sharp fifties street gang and turn it up loud, mixing it with insurrectionary soul power and enormous rip snorting guitar irresistibility. They capture the raw rush of primetime punk rock and effortlessly hotwire it up to the complete history of Rock n Roll, fanning those furious flames one more time in pursuit of that perfect Rock n Roll moment, that ultimate sonic high.
Based in London, UK, since 2001, they have kicked up a riot with shows alongside the likes of The Hives, The Datsuns, and the Immortal Lee County Killers. Now they mean serious business and are ready for the international breakout. Looking like a bunch of ex-cons, spitting glass and holding the Rock n Roll grenade. A fully formed and finely tuned Rock n Roll street machine with its guitars and guns blazing. Come and hang with the gang with a fistful of napalm. Come, be healed by the Power, the Glory, The Divine Brown.

17. Animal Girl
18. Don't Say Goodbye

The Standells made number 11 in 1966 with "Dirty Water," an archetypal garage rock hit with its Stonesish riff, lecherous vocal, and combination of raunchy guitar and organ. While they never again reached the Top Forty, they cut a number of strong, similar tunes in the 1966-67 era that have belated been recognized as '60s punk classics. "Garage rock" may not have been a really accurate term for them in the first place, as the production on their best material was full and polished, with some imaginative touches of period psychedelia and pop.

The group churned out four albums in 1966 and 1967, as well as appearing in (and contributing the theme song to) the psychedelic exploitation movie Riot on Sunset Strip. Cobb, in addition to writing "Dirty Water," also penned their other most enduring singles, including "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White," "Why Pick on Me," and "Try It" (the last of which was widely banned for its suggestive delivery). The group did write some decent material of their own, such as the tense "Riot on Sunset Strip," and the psychedelic "All Fall Down. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Chris Spedding - the best of motor bikin'

Chris Spedding - the best of motor bikin'

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

Motor Bikin' / New Girl In The Neighbourhood / Nervous / Jump In My Car /Running Around / Pogo Dancing / The Pose / Wild In The Street / Silver Bullet /Roadrunner / Get Outa My Pagoda / Hurt By Love / Bored Bored / Hey Miss Betty /Walking / Breakout (concert version) / Gunfight / Evil / I'm Not Like Everybody Else /Box Number / The Crying Game / I Got A Feeling / A Shot Of Rhythm 'n' Blues /Guitar Jamboree

One of Britain's most versatile session guitarists, Chris Spedding had a long career on two continents that saw him tackle nearly every style of rock & roll to come down the pike, as well as sporadically attempting a solo career. In 1975 he signed to Mickie Most's RAK label, for which he recorded the single "Motor Bikin'." The latter record, which was marketed with Spedding presented in a matching, contrived leather-wearing bad-boy image, made the U.K. charts, peaking at number 14 and led to the Chris Spedding album. Though it wasn't his first solo album, so great had been the impact of "Motor Bikin'," it might as well have been his debut as far as most listeners were concerned -- it was also a serious departure from his earlier albums, with a decided retro feel, in the choice of repertory and the sound of his instrument, as well as the vocal style that Spedding employed. Sporting an overall sound that careened between Buddy Holly and Gene Vincent, and a guitar style that emulated, at various points, the playing by Holly and Tommy Alsup on the former's records, as well as Vincent's lead guitarist Cliff Gallup, the record was a hugely influential work in its time, even if it didn't sell quite as well as the single that spawned it or ever really catch on in the U.S. It did give him the credibility -- despite being a veteran of the British Invasion scene and the psychedelic era -- to join the Vibrators on their first single, "Pogo Dancing." His punk credentials were enhanced by demos he produced for the Sex Pistols and the Cramps; false rumors flew for years that he actually played the guitar parts on the former band's records.
Spedding attempted unsuccessfully to capitalize on this new credibility with 1978's Guitar Graffiti, an exultant album-length guitar workout that put him back in his early-'70s mode but with a lighter touch and a more freely flowing spirit behind it, drawing together Spedding's virtuosity, the roots rock and rock & roll sensibilities he'd tapped on his recent albums, and all of the range of his previous work -- somehow, it failed to connect with the public, beyond his cult audience. He then moved to New York and joined the Necessaries as a guitarist and songwriter. The chemistry wasn't right, however, and he returned to England and recorded another album of his own, I'm Not Like Everybody Else, in 1980. The live Friday the 13th was released a year later, showing off some extended solos on his late-'70s material. Over the '80s and '90s, Spedding -- who was frequently compared to Mark Knopfler as a guitarist and recording artist -- continued his session work on such albums as Tom Waits' Rain Dogs, while periodically releasing solo material (1985's Mean and Moody, 1986's roots-rocking Enemy Within, and 1990's Cafe Days). He also led his own band -- mostly in Europe -- delving into vintage musical styles, including 1950s rock & roll (Gesundheit, 2000) and blues-rock (Click Clack, 2005). ~ Steve Huey & Bruce Eder, All Music Guide
