The Voodoo Dolls - Not for sale

The Voodoo Dolls - Not for sale

In FLAC - Covers included

The Voodoo Dolls rocked some of the best clubs in Boston (and elsewhere) for 5 years starting in 1989. Mixing Evan Shore's garage/pop songwriting with the energy of the Ramones and the strong persona of Cam Ackland (Prime Movers) as a frontman...Not For Sale is the only album these guys made. It came out in early 1993 in conjunction with Helter Skelter Records in Italy. Not for sale / I've got nothing / Lido beach / Turn the lights on / She won't sleep well tonight / Just like Romeo & Juliet / Bonedog / This town makes me feel so lonely / Junk drawer / The good part's over / I lost her number / Crush on me* / 1-2-5 / I ran out of luck / Number two / Bad feeling / Gone , gone , gone / Sorry .
Produced by Aram Heller , except for * : Steve Malone.
The Voodoo Dolls : Cam Ackland : vocals , harmonica / David Harrison : guitar / Evan Shore : guitar , vocals / Bob Martel : bass , vocals / Bruce Pierce : drums .

Had The Voodoo Dolls formed in, say, 1997, rather than 1987, they likely would have been riding the modern garage-rock popularity wave with the likes of The Hives, The Mooney Suzuki, The Hellacopters etc. They had great songs dueling guitars (courtesy of Shore and Dave Hollywood Harrison), and a great lead vocalist in the form of ex- Prime Mover ,Cam Ackland. Rhythm section? Well, they were always great, but the rhythm section changed rather often in this band. One night in Bethlehem, PA, Original Sins leader JT said of them : " This must be what it was like to see the MC5". These guys were a POWERFUL rockn'roll band.

Tengo el cd y no recuerdo donde lo compre, pero lo que si recuerdo es que es un disco muy bueno. Repasando hay que recomendar canciones como Not For Sale o Lido Beach e incluso buenas versiones como "Just Like Romeo & Juliet". Un discazo.
