Steve Allen and Ron Flynt followed the power pop path blazed by fellow Tulsa natives Phil Seymour and Dwight Twilley when they moved in 1977 to Los Angeles, where they formed (with Mike Gallo) what has universally become one of the most highly-regarded power pop/new wave outfits of the era, 20/20. Early singles for Bomp! Records were amazing. Most of the tracks on the debut (songs 1-12 here) are keepers, catchy choruses, swirling vocals, all the trademarks of great pop. The Look Out! tracks are considerably less traditional power pop but have enough hooks to appeal to more adventurous new wave fans.
Billy Maynard, Kevin Kalen, and Mike Melenas (former members of 90’s pop punk stalwarts Mulligan Stu), packed up their 6 and 4 strings, stacked up the amps, grabbed a six- pack, and with new skin basher Jordan Acosta in tow, hit the garage, cranked up the volume, and churned out some serious heartland rock ‘n’ roll anthems for the punk rock youth in all of us.
On 24 July 2015, RUM BAR RECORDS will release Mono In Stereo's debut" Long For Yesterday". 12 shots of adrenaline with fist- pumping choruses, lyrics that’ll stick like gum to yer shoe, and belted- out vocals that’ll stand the test of time and appeal to fans of The Gaslight Anthem, Jesse Malin, Old 97’s, Husker Du, Superchunk.Including the soon to be anthemic, gut- wrenching heartland hits “Long For Yesterday”; “Monty Nolder”; "Start Again"; "Feels Alright"; and "Woke Up in Haight" (cause it feels alright!!) Mono In Stereo's debut 10 song LP comes w/additional 2 song bonus track download from CD version. All orders come with beer koozie!!

A couple of months ago, the Swedish label Low Impact has released two amazing records : The Bo-Dogs "Bad Bad Dog!" and The Maharajas "Yesterday always knew"
1) The Bo-Dogs is a swedish band featuring Nisse Hellberg – Vox, Guitar; Kent Norberg – Guitar, Vox; Chips Kiesbye – Bass, Vox and Patrik Herrström – Drums.
"Bad Bad Dog!" is their debut full length and it is obviously an amazing way to start. Raw and wild guitars, energetic vocals and a rock solid rhythm section that all bring to mind Dave Edmunds and Rockpile's pure good time rock and roll!
The album opener, 'Hey Mr Oil Drop Man' is worth alone the price of admission but the record is filled to the rafters with incredible tracks like "she's got to go", the tremolo guitar driven "Why Don't You Explain" or the dreamy power pop gem "Junk Angel". The band also seems to have a good sense of humour since they named 2 instrumentals tracks "Dog Meets Skunk" and later on the album "Skunk Meets Dog" So what you have here are fourteen tracks of brilliantly well played good time rock and roll that are ideal to be played loud in your car while cruising down the highway at full speed. Try it and you will be hooked. An absolutely must buy. Purchase it here : https://bo-dogs.bandcamp.com/releases
2) The Maharajas should need no introduction to the viewers of this blog since they include veterans/legends of the Swedish neo-garage rock scene. Ulf Guttormsson - Bass and Vocals; Jesper Karlsson - Drums; Jens Lindberg - Vocals and Guitar; Mathias Lilja - Vocals and Guitar, ex-members of Crimson Shadows, The Strollers, The Maggots, The Stomach Mouths and more…
"Yesterday Always Knew" is already their 5th full length release and it is without any doubt their best effort so far! Excellent stuff filled with catchy original songs! The progress and musical development of this band from record to record is remarquable. The Maharajas are certainly one of the most underrated bands from Scandinavia.
As they state it themselves, "The Maharajas find influences from all good rock made between 1950 and today. Their albums is a mix of garage rock, pubrock, pop, moody punk. It's a timeless rock’n’roll manifest without a best-before stamp" An absolutely must buy. Purchase it here : https://themaharajas.bandcamp.com/

"Day Breakaway" their long awaited debut full length is finally here and, boy, was it worth the wait!
Twelve amazing new slabs of jangle, 60's garage pop bringing back to mind the Paisley Underground bands such as The Rain Parade, The Long Ryders and The Three O'Clockbut also the bands that originated it all in the sixties: The Byrds, Love, The Hollies and Buffalo Springfield.
The production by the band itself is absolutely pristine, the arrangements are impressive, the vocal harmonies are suave and the songwriting is brilliant: Sunkissed psychedelia and irresistible hooks, with the band’s electrifying blast of folk-rock garage spangle... If you thrilled to the Byrds, it’s time to meet your new favourite band!
From Tampa, Florida comes Gino and the Goons, a real bad ass rawk'n'roll outfit whose latest record, "Shake it!" was released last year by Slovenly/Black Gladiator.
GINO AND THE GOONS are : Gino Bambino, gtr (with no reverb and no effects!!! Gino insists on THAT) and vocals - Hugh T.Williams, drums and bck-up vcls - P.Allen Mandelbass, bass and bck-up vcls.
If you like low-fi barroom bashers shouted out loud by three mean hooligans you will be in heaven here. This is the best thing that happened to r'n'r since the Devil dogs, the New York Dolls or Walter Lure's WALDOS: totally Infectious and primal as hell. A must buy!

"One of the great NY area bands of that time was the Secret Service. Though there were other great Mod bands in the area (especially the mighty Mod Fun, who worked more on the Pop Art side of things), The Secret Service brought back the sounds of UK R&B circa 1964. They were a shit-hot live band and had extremely good taste in covers. One of those covers was a tune called ‘Lovin’ Machine’". Larry Grogan Funky16Corners

JD Wilkes & the Dirt Daubers - Wild Moon In Flac - Front cover only French Harp Hustle Apple And Oranges Wild Moon Drive No Rest For The Wicked No More My Love Angel Crown Let It Fly You Know I Love You Hidey Hole Don't Thrill Me No More River Song God Fearing People
The Dirt Daubers have returned....for the most part. Initially a three piece with Mark Robertson (Legendary Shack Shaker) on bass, Jessica Wilkes on vocals, and of course Col. JD Wilkes on harp and banjo, they have now added to the mix guitarist Rod Hamdallah and drummer Preston Corn. Robertson is out and bass duties are filled by JD and Jessica, who alternate depending on who's singing.
As most fans of the band know, this new lineup means a new sound. It's not the acoustic roots/bluegrass sound of the first two albums. The Daubers are now "plugged in" as it were, and while this may turn off some of the purist fans, this is a very interesting, exciting and enjoyable chapter in the Dirt Daubers saga.
Electric Mind Machine is a Psychedelic/Garage fuzz group from Los Angeles, CA. featuring founding members Sara Loera (Singer) and Kenneth Wessel (Guitar) plus Gabriel Hammond (Bass), Christopher Hurt (Vox organ), Geoffrey Johnson (Drums).
The band obviously shares an appreciation of the music from the 60s garage, psychedelic, mod and freak beat scenes but at the same time manages to come up with an energetic and very fresh sound that will totally appeal to fans of The LOVE ME NOTS with whom they share their record label.
Vocalist Sara Loera conjures the sultry charisma and power of a modern day Mariska Veres of the legendary Dutch band Shocking Blue. While Kenneth Wessel, who is also the main composer and producer of the record, proves himself to be an amazingly raw and fuzzed out guitar player able to come up with a very personnal sound.
2007 two-fer featuring the two solo albums originally released in the late '70s and early '80s by the New York Dolls member. The self-titled debut was issued in 1979 followed two years later by Syl Sylvain and The Teardrops. Both albums are filled with hook-laden '50s influenced Rock and Pop and definitely more commercial than anything he recorded with the Dolls.

This collection of live and studio rarities from the late '60s and early '70s--when powerhouse singer Roy Loney was the group's central figure--shows that at their best, the Flamin' Groovies could shred every band in their general stylistic vicinity. This album burns through good-rockin' covers of such proto-power-pop classics as "I Can't Explain," "Shakin' All Over" and, of course, "Louie Louie." One particularly way-cool find, the radio promo for the Groovies' self-released SUPERSNAZZ album, is also included. Essential for all Groovies fans.
