They only released one 7” and they only made thirteen studio recordings, but they could very well be the best power pop band you never heard in your life. On first listen, Jill Kossoris’ voice might make you think of Blondie or the Go-Gos, but the Shivvers’ biggest influence definitely seems to have been the Rasperries; you can hear it on most of the tracks, particularly “Hold On” and “Why Tell Lies.” Among the many songs the band covered live were a few by pre-Raspberries groups the Choir and Cyrus Erie, and two of the live songs on this CD are Eric Carmen covers. all of the original 1980 recordings are absolutely terrific. If they had been released at the time, the Shivvers album would almost definitely have been one of the classics of the genre along with the Dwight Twilley Band’s Sincerely and the Shoes’ Black Vinyl Shoes.;s.rar

Detroit rock'n'roll as in the time-tested, freak-out-your-mom, forget-all-your-worries version of the stuff. Hey there! Have a slice of classicist influenced Garage&B. One part Cramps (and their attendant influence on the non-purist rockabilly/roots hoo-ha in the '80s), one part Munsters/Groovie Ghoulies (the TV shows), one part smeared make-up Ronettes, one part other stuff from their Detroit environs around '66 and it's fallout on the record's co-producer, Mick Collins. Picks to hit, the female sung, "Ghost Pains," and "M'girl Left With You." - Lollipop Magazine;s_That_Grab_Ya_.rar

Seven Long Years - Always two steps ahead of the heartbreak

Seven Long Years  - Always two steps ahead of the heartbreak.

Brand new 6 tracks digital release of the best 60's garage band around. "Always two steps ahead of the heartbreak" got everything you always dreamed of: layers and layers of guitars, vocals harmonies a plenty, uptempo beats and basslines crawling out of your speakers like deadly snakes in the grass. Probably their best work to this day.

Do yourself a favor and move over to bandcamp to buy a LOSSLESS copy of this gem.

The group, which features Krohna on vocals, the twin guitar appeal of Melody Licious and Ziggy Starcrunch, the thundering bass of Miss Lela and codpiece-filled drumming of one Dave Malarsh, released their sophomore record "More is More" in early 2007. The album is a collection of predominantly '70s glam and punk covers with some Shangri-Las and Poison thrown in for good measure. Some of the brilliantly redone covers include amazingly kick ass takes on Sweet’s “Wig Wam Bam,” Slade’s “Rock and Roll Preacher,” MC5’s “High School” and The Bay City Rollers’ “Saturday Night.” Produced by Jim Diamond!

The Last is a Los Angeles-based power pop band formed in the 1970s around three brothers: Joe (guitar, vocals), Mike (vocals), and David Nolte (bass guitar). The band's sound was influenced by garage rock, surf rock, folk rock and psychedelic rock. After three self-financed singles, the band was signed by Bomp! Records, who issued the debut album L.A. Explosion! in 1979 (described by Trouser Press as "a near-perfect debut"). 

They reverted to their own Backlash label for second album Look Again (1980), and split up in the mid-1980s with David Nolte joining Wednesday Week and later Lucky. The band were considered a major influence on the psychedelia-influenced LA bands of the mid-1980s, including The Bangles and The Three O'Clock.

"The Beat" released the 5 song 12" Mini-Album To Beat or Not To Beat in 1983 on the independent Jem/Passport label in the U.S.. One song from the album, "Dance, Dance", was made into a music video in 1984 and received limited exposure on MTV. To Beat or Not To Beat, with an additional song, was released in Europe where the group relocated (and would remain for the next several years) to promote the release and tour.
In 1985 another 6 song 12" Mini-Album "Longtime Gone" was produced by former Motörhead drummer Lucas Fox and recorded in London with UK musicians, including Jim Barber on Guitar (whose Credits include The Rolling Stones, Ruby Turner and Mick Jagger solo album), being released only in Europe. A live album recorded in Madrid, Spain with Spanish members titled Live At The Universal followed in 1986. Collins relocated to San Francisco, releasing the album One Night, with yet another incarnation of an all American Beat, this time credited as "Paul Collins + The Beat", through Sony in 1989 (again only in Europe). One Night was their first album to feature acoustic instruments such as mandolin and acoustic guitar. This was their final studio album before disbanding. Collins would go on to record several solo albums before later re-forming a new version of The Beat.;_Beat_-_To_Beat_Or_Not_To_Beat_+_Long_Time_Gone.rar
