1981 was a terrific year: Ronald Reagan had just taken office, the economy was starting an exciting slide into the toilet, and music was just about to become totally 80's. Thankfully it was also the year a little band from Milwaukee called The Wigs recorded and released their widely undiscovered classic, "File Under: Pop Vocal."

Special Thanx to JPaul, THE ONE AND ONLY Power Pop Purveyor, for this great contribution!

Features songs contributed by Mickey Jupp (‘You’ll Never Get Me Up In One Of Those’), Elvis Costello (‘Girls Talk’), Chuck Berry (‘Let It Rock’ & ‘Promised Land’) and, of course, Nick Lowe - Stiff Records’ songwriter supreme - including a version of his debut solo hit ‘So It Goes’.

In wav - Covers are included

1. Saturday Every Day 
2. Fell In Love At The Arcade

The primal punk affections of The Soda Pop Kids have been captured and mixed with 60s bubblegum Pop, scorching guitar riffs with bluesy rhythms and textured, call-and-response vocals. Imaginative and creative songwriting help The Soda Pop Kids escape the malaise of formulaic punk fare and instead they dish up songs about love at the arcade, alien abduction, gun-packing senoritas, and a boy leaving a girl. LIke if the NEW YORK DOLLS had a child with THE RUBETTES.

In 1974, Kim Fowley gave us a Californian version of the New York Dolls with ‘The Hollywood Stars’. He co-wrote with band leader the glammy smash hit "All The Kids On The Street". Unfortunately the album (which was never reissued on cd) came out in 1977 i.e. 4 years after the glam rage, but "All The Kids On The Street" is still a classic. Check also Weekend Love,  Sunrise To Sunset  and Make It To The Party !

Tuff Darts was an American punk rock band. They were one of the first bands to establish an audience at CBGB. They reached their greatest fame in the mid-late 1970s with such songs as "Slash", "(Your Love Is Like) Nuclear Waste" and their biggest hit single, "All For The Love of Rock and Roll." The band appeared at popular New York City clubs like Max's Kansas City and CBGB and featured Robert Gordon (vocals), Jeff Salen (guitar), Bobby Butani (guitar), John DeSalvo (bass), and Jim Morrison (drums). This was the original band that was on the "Live at CBGB's" compilation record. After parting ways with Gordon who started a solo carreer, the band found new lead singer Tommy Frenzy. In 1978 the group released Tuff Darts!, on Sire Records, produced by Bob Clearmountain and Tony Bongiovi, shortly before disbanding.

THE VICE BARONS stuff finally available on BANDCAMP.

My personal favorite! Nice production work, raw guitars and groovy organs. Not to mention Nicky the stripper on the cover! Buy it here


By the time of this record, the band was revamped into LES VICE BARONS. This one has his moments as well. "Surfsploitation" is exactly what it was all about and nobody before or after played such a motherfucking in your face rendition of "Time Bomb".

Nikki Hill - Here's Nikki Hill

Nikki Hill - Here's Nikki Hill
In Flac - covers are included

1.Ask Yourself 
2.Her Destination 
3.I've Got a Man 
4.Right On The Brink 
5.Gotta Find My Baby 
6.I Know 
7.Don't Cry Anymore 
8.Strapped to the Beat 
9.Who Were You Thinking Of? 
10.Hymn for Hard Luck 

Hailing from Durham, North Carolina, Nikki comes by her Deep South soul honestly. Hill and her band (who Nikki deems ‘The Pirate Crew) are climbing to the top of the roots music scene step by step and leaving jaws on the floor along the way. With a no-filter energy, they take all the flavors of American roots music and deliver a sound that will make you believe in rock and roll again! Nikki’s gritty and raw voice with Stax soul dynamics, driving rhythm guitar from Matt Hill, and a tight rhythm section provided by Ed Strohsahl and Joe Meyer come together and make a sound that just sounds like the truth.

Special thanx to  JPaul for this groovy contribution!

The Nomads - Solna

The Nomads - Solna (Loaded Deluxe Edition)
In WAV - scans are included
1. Miles Away
2. Hangman's Walk
3. The Bad Times Will Do Me Good
4. You Won't Break My Heart
5. Don't Kill The Messenger
6. 20000 Miles

1. Can't Go Back
2. American Slang
3. Make Up My Mind
4. Up Down Or Sideways
5. The Way You Let Me Down
6. Get Out Of My Mind

Solna – Loaded Deluxe Edition is a modified version of the original 2012 Swedish only release: Three newly recorded tracks have been added.
Thirty years on, the Nomads have produced their strongest album yet. The current lineup has spent the last 20 years honing their sound, live and in the studio.  Solna – Loaded Deluxe is the distilled essence of what the Nomads are known for. The formula is simple: a strong front man – Nick Vahlberg, guitar hero – Hans Ostlund, powerhouse drummer – Joakim Werning, and multi threat bassist/song writer – Bjorne Froberg.
The eleven original songs (+ Jack Oblivian’s "American Slang" cover) showcase the Nomads hard rockin’ side as well as their melodic skill. Solna kicks off swinging both fists with "Miles Away" and the fuzz drenched "Hangman’s Walk". Never afraid to tip their hats to their influences, the specter of Blue Oyster Cult is cast over the moody "The Bad Times Will Do Me Good".

Radioactivity is a continuation of The Novice, Jeff Burke's band while living in Japan. Jeff has since moved back to Texas, and out of respect to the Japanese lineup of the band, has changed the name to Radioactivity. Some of these songs are re-purposed Novice tracks, while others are brand new. Jeff is one of the most distinctive songwriters in the punk rock underground, and these songs will sound instantly familiar to any fans of The Marked Men or Potential Johns. Band members include Jeff Burke, Mark Ryan, and Gregory Rutherford, whose credits read like an all-star lineup of Texas punk and garage rock royalty, including members of The Marked Men, Mind Spiders, Bad Sports, Wax Museums, The Reds, VIDEO, and The Novice.
