The Inmates - Five

The Inmates - Five (vinyl rip)
In WAV - Covers are included

Let's move
I'm think I'm getting over you
Just like Romeo & Juliet
Lonely hearts
Back on the streets
Baby say yeah
Take a heart
Sister Jekyll and Hyde
Love's for losers
Sweet lovin'
Back on the streets

For some obscure reasons, this has always been one of my favorite INMATES records. Not a weak track in sight, great covers, Vic Maile's brilliant production job and Barry Masters' voice that gives you the feeling this is the long lost best record Eddie and The Hot Rods never recorded. The ideal album for cruising down the highway. Try it and you'll be hooked!

HE'S MY SURFIN' GUY - The Beach Girls 25. RIDING THE WAVES - Dee Dee Sharp 

The influence of California's Beach Boys permeates "Hey, Beach Girls!" as it did the world of music in 1963. Brian Wilson and his cohorts had not long zoomed to the Top 3 with `Surfin' USA' when an opportunist East Coast record company exec with his eye on the latest pop fads concocted a plan to grab a piece of the action. Bestowing the Surfer Girls moniker on a new young female trio, he ushered them into the studio to cut `Draggin' Wagon' to the very same tune. * Over in Paris, France's top girl group Les Gam's flipped over the same Beach Boys platter to give `Shut Down' their inimitable yé-yé treatment and in Australia teenager Little Pattie stormed the charts with `He's My Blonde-Headed, Stompie Wompie, Real Gone Surfer Guy'.* It's doubtful that much surfing went on in Detroit, but the Supremes dipped their toes in the water with `Surfer Boy', one of two numbers they got to sing in the movie Beach Ball. In Philadelphia, epicentre of dance craze culture, the Orlons and Dee Dee Sharp took a break from the watusi and the mashed potato to cut tracks for the rare "Everybody's Goin' Surfin'" LP: `Surfin'' and `Riding The Waves' make their CD debut here.* Other highlights include hideously obscure and collectable decks from the Westwoods, the Fleetwoods, the Beach Girls, Ellie Gee (short for Greenwich, natch) & the Jets, the Surfettes and Andrea Carroll, all of whose contributions are also new to CD. Not forgetting, of course, Ginger, Diane and Brian Wilson's wife Marilyn, otherwise known as the Honeys, without whom no surfing girls compilation would be complete

Giuda - Let's Do It Again is out today!

Giuda - Let's Do It Again is out today!

Wild Tiger Woman 
Yellow Dash 
Get That Goal 
Teenage Rebel 
Rave On 
Hold Me Tight 
Roller Skates Rule OK 
Fat Boy Boogie 
Get On the Line 
Hey Hey 

Giuda (pronounced JEW-DA) are an Italian Glam/Glitter/Boot Boy band from Rome, born from the ashes of one of the finest European punk rock groups: Taxi. They play the most exciting kind of retro sounding pub rock and junk shop glam and they have the look of true working class heroes (Think SLADE circa "Play it Loud")… actually they are the perfect party band, but with a tough attitude.

They wear their influences on their sleeves (SWEET, MUD, SLADE, The GLITTER BAND) but blend it all together in their own mix and what comes out is a pure delight. 'LET'S DO IT AGAIN' is their second long player, released on the great DAMAGED GOODS label!

Don't be cheap and buy a hard copy of the cd or the LP here:

Definitely in my top 3 of the year 2013!

SYSTER HYDE - Taste of your Lips Digital E.P.

SYSTER HYDE - Taste of your Lips Digital E.P.

There was a small period of time, more or less between 1977 and 1983 when everything seemed possible.

The influence of Punk music on one hand and the beginning of electronic music on the other hand had set the ground for new bands to emerge and managed to blend together those influences.

If you need name dropping, think THE CARS, DEVO, SPIZZENERGI, etc....

Wearing their influences on their sleeves, this is exactly the kind of spirit that animates SYSTER HYDE.

The band includes 3 VICE BARONS, 1 RATBOYS and 1 BODY TO BODY, but don't worry no single surf guitar sound in sight!

Don't be cheap and move your lazy asses over to bandcamp to get a LOSSLESS copy of this great E.P.

01. A Wonderful Afternoon
02. Taste of Your Lips
03. Lookin' in The Face of Evil
04. Mongoloid
05. Twenty Layers of Red (Rocking Beat)
06. Halo of Blue

Mink DeVille - Cabretta

Mink DeVille - Cabretta CD Vinyl Replica Deluxe
In WAV - scans are included
1. Venus Of Avenue D 
2. Little Girl 
3. One Way Street 
4. Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl 
5. Gunslinger 
6. Can't Do Without It 
7. Cadillac Walk 
8. Spanish Stroll 
9. She's So Tough 
10. Party Girls

Released in the year 1977, Cabretta was Mink DeVille's debut album and it was greeted with strong critical acclaim. Produced by Jack Nitzche, the album is as lean and sharp as it's front man. A mix of tough talking bravado, street-walking struts and sweet nostalgic ballads that hark back to the Brill Building. Gunslinger features Punk's attack while Spanish Stroll boasts a pronounced R & B/Latin groove, something decidedly out of vogue in the late 70's. The major classics here abound from the switch-blade threat of Cadillac Walk to the wistful balladry of Little Girl and Venus of Avenue D. Many songs like Mixed Up Shook Up Girl, sound like they escaped from a far more innocent time only to be thrown to the mercy of One Way Streets with no tomorrow.

The Datsuns are a rock band from Cambridge, New Zealand.  In July 2002, after featuring several times on John Peel's programme on the UK's BBC Radio 1 and being hailed as "the future of rock" by the British music press, the band signed with the V2 record label. Their self-titled debut album made a strong impression in the UK, as well as in Australia and New Zealand. Their second album, Outta Sight, Outta Mind, was produced by Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones. However it did not receive the same praise as the first, critics giving it only a lukewarm response. In October 2006, the Datsuns came back with Smoke & Mirrors, heralded as a return to form in Australia and New Zealand. However it was largely ignored by music press overseas.

5. Stranded  
6. Breakout Tonight  
7. Bad News  
8. No Dice  
9. Whispers  
10. Cross Your Fingers  
11. Rollin' In My Rolls  

John "Moon" Martin earned his recording contract the old fashioned way; he duked it out in several unsuccessful bands (even releasing albums with a group called Southwind), got his songs placed with prominent artists, and finally found his moment. Unfortunately, he never got the huge break his songs were worthy of. Street Fever contains some of his best songs in one setting.Martin's interesting style, sort of a New-Wave Buddy Holly with rockabilly leanings and a keen sense of pop is at its best when he leans towards his Buddy Holly pop/rock, like "Signal For Help." Martin also self-produced (with Warren Dewey), and his backing band The Ravens were tight as always.Alas, the album sold less than its predecessor, lacking a hit single like "Rolene." All of Martin's albums are hook-laden and filled with good songs.
