LA DRUGZ - Outside Place

LA DRUGZ - Outside Place 



LA Drugz are an LA story.  The band formed in Los Angeles as the brainchild of Justin Maurer, the front man of Portland Oregon's Clorox Girls for nearly a decade.   He continued to write songs as the final lineup of Clorox Girls disbanded. His particular blend of 60s pop and LA punk eventually became LA Drugz songs.
           
Maurer was born in LA and came of age in the Pacific Northwest, cutting his teeth on local punk rock in Seattle and Portland.  His father, a dental supply salesman and former musician, gave his son his 1970s Remo drum kit to bang on in the garage when it was rainy out.  His uncle John, who regaled him with tales of hitchhiking to see The Who in the 70s, showed him a few chords on the guitar and he was well on his way. Maurer's mother is completely deaf and allowed him to throw punk rock shows in their basement.  He began touring at the age of 15, and with Clorox Girls he released 3 albums and 10 singles.  Clorox Girls toured the world, fostering a dedicated fanbase in South America and Europe.  When the band broke up he lived and worked in Madrid and London where he toured and released records with bands like Red Dons, Mano De Mono, Role Models and Suspect Parts. At 27 years old he found himself down and out in Los Angeles looking for another musical project.
           
Maurer met lead guitarist and angel-voiced backing vocalist Cezar Mora when living down in Long Beach.  They shared enthusiasm for the Beach Boys, Buddy Holly, Arthur Lee & Love, early LA punk and old country music.  Mora played lead guitar in the final lineup of Clorox Girls and along with Maurer, intended to form a Beach Boys cover band in Spanish.  Both are fluent in Spanish, Maurer from his days living in Madrid and touring South America, Mora from his Mexican-born father and extended family.
Mora had some connections in the Latino low-rider world and believed they could make a living performing at classic car shows.  When learning and singing an entire set of Beach Boys covers in Spanish proved too difficult, Maurer and Mora decided to form a new band.    Cezar Mora grew up in North Long Beach and attended Jordan High School - a rough and tumble school rife with gang activity. The school's mascot is a Black Panther.  He lived down the street from rapper Snoop Dogg and as a kid he was often asked directions to Snoop's house by carloads full of black teenagers trying to locate a party.   Local gangs recruited Cezar, but he declined their advances, deciding to pursue music instead.  He formed The Switchups and later The Bad Machine before joining forces with Maurer in LA Drugz.
           
James Carman was born and raised in the South Bay neighborhood of Carson - a working class neighborhood bordering Compton, Torrance, Long Beach and San Pedro.  Carman's father, a cabdriver, met his mother while serving in the Navy, stationed in The Philippines. Carman's older brother was active in a local gang and in a revenge-based incident, a rival gang performed a drive-by shooting directed at the Carman family home.   Carman had to change high schools when his older brother's gang rivals put a hit out on him. Carman's offense was being a younger brother of a prominent gang member.  After serving prison time, his brother gave up gang banging, and this in part encouraged Carman to follow music.   He formed the band Images, strongly influenced by UK punk and power pop.  Images gained the attention of The Buzzcocks' US management and they found themselves opening for the Buzzcocks on a west coast tour at 14 years old.   Clorox Girls played with Images in San Pedro and Maurer was impressed with Carman's drumming and singing.   They got along and agreed to collaborate together.
Johnny "JD" Reyes was born to a Filipino family in Orange County.  He was a childhood friend of Carman's and played bass in the original lineup of Images.  He grew up a fan of British music like Oasis, Smiths, Johnny Marr and The Buzzcocks.  When he auditioned for the band on bass, he showed up with a bright yellow "Orgasm Addict" t-shirt and after a few songs, the guys agreed to add him on bass.
Now what to call it?  In the dreaded "band name conversation," Maurer mentioned that the best music was like a drug and Carman suggested "The Drugs" as a band name.  Maurer liked the name of 80s band "LA Guns" so suggested "LA Drugs." When it was discovered a band called LA Drugs existed from Boston, they decided to change the spelling to LA Drugz as an homage to 70s East LA punk band The Plugz.
After a slew of Westcoast dates, Portland, Oregon's Hovercraft Records released their debut 12" EP in 2013 and they have US and European tours slated in 2014.  The title track "Outside Place" was featured in Hollywood film "The Lifeguard."

And so they are born.  They're an L.A. band with an L.A. story, an L.A. band of mixed race and ages. They are a unique breed of a high-octane L.A. punk/60s pop super group who bring the past and present into a beautiful battering ram.

Wooden Shjips - Back to Land (australian ltd edition with bonus track)

Wooden Shjips - Back to Land (australian ltd edition with bonus track)
In wav - Scans are included
1. Back to Land 
2. Ruins 
3. Ghouls 
4. These Shadows 
5. In the Roses 
6. Other Stars 
7. Servants 
8. Everybody Knows
9. These Shadows (acoustic version)

Wooden Shjips’ rise to prominence from the psychedelic underground to the rock and roll overground has been a steady sojourn. With each consecutive release, the band has found new ways of transforming heady psychedelic rock into minimalist masterpieces, bridging the gap between the woozy freeness of Les Rallizes Denudes and Crazy Horse and the tightly wound simplicity of Suicide and the Velvet Underground. Back To Land, the quartet’s follow-up to West, is the first Wooden Shjips record to be conceived outside of San Francisco.  Back To Land was laid to tape at Jackpot Recording Studios in Portland by Kendra Lynn and mixed by Larry Crane. It was recorded over an 11-day session, resulting in some of the most detailed and spacious recordings of their career.

Back To Land is a breakthrough record for the Wooden Shjips: nuanced, varied and utterly addictive.

The Soul Movers - On The Inside



The Soul Movers - On The Inside
In wav - Scans are included


1. Stickin' Around 
2. Baby I Love You 
3. Slip-in Mules 
4. Not With Her 
5. Dead 6. Gotta Run 
7. Hold Me 
8. Few Good Reasons 
9. Low and Slow 
10. Change 
11. Piece O' Me 
12. Krazy Kats


The Soul Movers is a band born of opportunity. Deniz Tek and keyboardist Pip Hoyle from famed Australian group Radio Birdman had time to revisit the music that had been their passion from the very start. Singer Lizzie Mack came up with songs, which tapped into some classic soul themes: lost love, untrustworthy love and new beginnings. This provides a clue to the appeal of the Soul Movers music. With strong soul roots the band has managed to imbue their music with a fresh, unselfconscious approach, delivering music which speaks directly to personal experience and with a rockin' rhythm that you can dance to and take the listener on a ride through relationships; from the first kiss.

Larry Bright _ Shake That Thing!



Larry Bright _ Shake That Thing!
In wav - covers are included

1. Bacon Fat
2. Shake That Thing
3. Maybelline
4. New Orleans
5. I'm a Man [Alternate Take]
6. Got My Mojo Working
7. When I Did the Mashed Potatoes With You
8. Surfin' Queen
9. My Hands Are Tied
10. One Ugly Child
11. Mojo Workout
12. Bloodhound
13. Twinkie Lee
14. (I'm A) Mojo Man
15. Teenage Jailbreak
16. Ugly American
17. The Thing


This amazing disc provides the perfect career overview of the inimitable brand of trashy, greasy dance-rock of Virginia-born, Texas-bred voodoo enthusiast Larry Bright, most accurately described by his very own mammy as "my li'l white bastard". Cut primarily in the pre-Beatle era by legendary L.A. producer Bob Keane, Larry is revealed alternately as a way cooler Johnny Rivers, a West Coast Ronnie Hawkins (dig his blistering "Mojo Workout"!), and most often as a more down, definitely dirtier Gary U.S. Bonds (the previously-unreleased "New Orleans" is positively swampy!). Heck, Bright even tried to cash in momentarily on the Surf Rock craze, though his Southern-fried "Surfin' Queen" sounds like it's hanging ten or eleven at the foot of the Mississippi rather than anywhere near Brian Wilson's sandbox.

Meanwhile, Larry more than proves he was, as claimed, Howlin' Wolf trapped inside the body of Pat Boone with an "I'm A Man" which, thanks to ferocious guitaring, cuts to absolute shreds other versions from the era - yes, even The Yardbirds'. As if all this isn't yet recommendation enough, howzabout the unsettlingly bizarre "When I Did The Mashed Potatoes With You" (Drifters on acid, I kid you not) and for real fun, check out Track 16, which begins with Keane ordering Larry, "I want you to write a song right now called The Ugly American". Gary Pig Gold

 The Untamed Youth first performed in Columbia at local club The Blue Note in January 1987, and quickly started playing locations throughout the United States between the years 1988–1993. The group disbanded in August 1993, but later reformed for a European tour in 1996 and to record two studio albums for both the Estrus and Norton labels in 1997 and 1998 respectively. The Youth were primarily a surf/frat rock band known for their wild stage antics such as spraying the audience with cans of beer. All this, while holding a true reverence for their influences… ”the gods whose grooves they hammer home are the stars on a hundred forgotten 45's, their sacred texts 'Surfin Hearse and 'Go Go Ferrari'. While their live shows were generally hard-edged, their albums are notably well-produced and arranged particularly their early Norton work, which was produced by Billy Miller of Norton Records and Andy Shernoff of The Dictators.

What we have here is a collection of Hard Core R&B from places like Chicago and Detroit, Rocking Rhythm and Blues of the type not heard since the 60's and not likely to appear on your Drive TimeGold Radio Station. The Five Du Tones "Chicken Astronaut" is funny and it rocks, "Welfare Cheese" by Emmanuel Laskey is a topical tune that still has meaning today, and all of it gets the groove on without a slowie in sight. An archeological record of what R&B and Soul sounded like before everything got all smoothed out and watered down.
