The Last - Confession [1988]

                                       THE LAST                                       

Three years after the Last broke up, the band reformed to release Confession in 1988. Consisting of the original band's Joe and Mike Nolte along with three newcomers, the group's sound remains in the '60s power-pop vein, with typically sharp, tart songwriting. This is their 4th album and first for SST records, produced by Bill Stevenson [The Descendents]. Dig! or Dig!

THE INTERNATIONAL VICIOUS SOCIETY Vol.5



Properly bonkers compendium of exotic and "painfully obscure crud-a-phonic dance craze platters from the 50s and 60s". It's a worldwide affair, taking in amped-up teeny dance starters from Peru, Italy, Belgium, Tahiti, Hawaii, Indonesia, USA and Germany among them. Apparently these were all played at the Universoty Of Vice parties organised by Laslo (a Dutch Chemistry student) and Gersido (an Italian artist) and held in the refrigerator of an abandoned butchery, and their HQ at 'Place de la Contrescarpe' in Paris. Expect a mix of 'phet-fuelled surf licks, charmingly daft pop and raunchy '50s rock to start any party sick of the usual and out to get wild.

Little Richard - The Fabulous Little Richard [1959]

                                LITTLE RICHARD                              
 The Fabulous Little Richard 

The Fabulous Little Richard was the third album from Little Richard, and the end of his rock and roll period. Released seventeen months after he had left the Specialty Records label, Richard had returned to religion and turned his back on the music that made him famous. Though he would briefly rescind that decision in 1960, and sporadically throughout his career, this album marked the end of his peak period. In order to make the record more accessible to listeners, over half of the tracks featured an overdubbed female backing group. The record was put together including out-takes and other leftover studio tracks, which saw Richard in a somewhat more mellow styling. [wikipedia]

The Vipers · Outta The Nest [1984]

                                    THE VIPERS                                    
  Outta The Nest 


80's garage revival group from New York formed by vocalist / saxophonist Jon Weiss after leaving the Fleshtones, guitarist David Mann, who played bass in Television, second guitarist Paul Martin, drummer Patrick Brown and bassist Graham May. The sound of Outta The Nest (PVC, 1984 - Cavestomp, 2000) is the quintessence of 60's garage/psychedelic influenced by the Standells, the Remains, the Electric Prunes, the 13th Floor Elevator, Chocolate Watchband, the Seeds, etc. The Vipers stand shoulder to shoulder with such 80's garage cult acts as The Fuzztones, The Fleshtones, The Lyres, The Cynics, The Chesterfield Kings, The Miracle Workers... 
In the late '90s, Vipers frontman Jon Weiss was as responsible as anyone for the latter-day garage resurgence as the creator of the Cavestomp! music festivals in NYC (1997-2001), conjuring by alchemy a host of legendary acts we never thought we'd see in person (? and the Mysterians, The Remains, The Pretty Things, The Chocolate Watchband, Richard & the Young Lions, The Standells and most especially The Monks) and putting them on bills with neo-garage bands past, present and future (Fleshtones, Lyres, Plasticland, Chesterfield Kings, Fuzztones, The Swingin' Neckbreakers, The Mooney Suzuki and yes, The Vipers, too).

        ROBERT JOHNSON & PUNCHDRUNKS         
  Beaver Shot, Live At Studion

And some heavy originals as well. It's a real wyld, sax driven, distorted, heavy instro stuff. So surfers, you better... watch out!

PARTIBREJKERS - Partibrejkers [1985]



PARTIBREJKERS [Partybreakers] was formed in 1982, in Beograd, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia) and released their debut album in 1985. For the release of the band's debut album, "Partibrejkers I", produced by Dušan Kojić "Koja" of Disciplina Kičme, the band combined rhythm-and-blues with punk rock, bringing anthem status to the band's songs "Ulični hodač", "Ona živi na brdu", "Gubitnik", "Ako si..." and "Stoj, Džoni", a cover of Tomi Sovilj i Njegove Siluete version of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode". The album was recorded at the O Studio in Belgrade on June 1984. As guests on the album appeared Branislav Petrović "Banana" on harmonica, producer Kojić played organ, and Branislav Trivić played saxophone. Despite the success of the debut album, Jugoton denied to release the band's second album, stating that it "lacked rebelliousness". On summer of 1985, Bulatović left the band, being temporarily replaced by Disciplina Kičme drummer Nenad Krasovac "Kele", and in December, the band ceased to exist. (wikipedia) Dig!

Partibjrejkers - Radio utopija (Demo 1983)

                                PARTIBREJKERS                              

No.1 Garage Punk band from Ex Yugoslavia, formed in the early 80's in Belgrade, Serbia. Under the influeces from Stooges, MC5, early Rolling Stones, New York Dolls, The Cramps... combined with blues, rhythm-and-blues, rockabilly they soon gained a strong Cult status. This is their first demo recording from '83, which was featured on "Ventilator 202 demo top 10" compilation. 



Again we are together ...
On the waves of your favorite radio stations

Radio ...
Overflies this moment,
Utopia ...

Shuts off all the lights
The trip began

Did you know that only one of the many
Gets the token for the
eden train

Random passing ...

The weather has deteriorated in this weekend
Clouded up, and you became nervous

Nothing you do not enroll by the hand,
TV corrupts you,
Neither the 
wallpaper stand as you've wanted 
You spent your money for nothing

Don't expect a lot from me
I Can you tell a something
But it will not be true

I've already paid to be a clown
And that's what I love

At this moment I would like to go out,
In the rain,
To wander the streets,
Not to be here in this chair

Alone and empty ...
...
I no longer have the strength to talk to you

End!
End!
End!
End!
End!

JAN DAVIS - Boss Guitar! [The Best Of]


As Jud Cost aptly points out in his liner notes, Jan Davis combined some of the best aspects of the dark, lean instrumental guitar rock of the Ventures and the Shadows. There were also edges of the more R&B-oriented work of Lonnie Mack and the more futuristic surf-into-dementia of someone like Davie Allan. Unlike any of these acts, he never did latch onto a piece of obvious hit material, but this collection of rare 1961-1966 singles (along with a couple of previously unissued tracks) has plenty of worthwhile moments. The 20 tracks -- most, though not all, instrumental -- vary from the mundane to the near-great, Davis trying his luck at many different approaches, some of them rather off the wall, to see what might fly in the marketplace. As for the near-great, the hot rod anthem "Boss Machine" rollicks along like the sleekest of shiny just-off-the-lot roadsters; as for the off-the-wall, "Snow Surfin' Matador" sounds like a female Mexican yodeler trapped in a twilight zone between surf and Tex-Mex border music. Several of the singles seem like themes to television shows about fugitives and lost-in-space travelers that never made it past the pilot stage, with their menacing riffs, goofy sci-fi sound effects and organ, bee-simulating guitar swirls, and cheesy horror movie yells. A few of them are routine R&B-anchored instrumental workouts, but Davis could always be counted on to come up with something unpredictable, including a pretty cool take on Kai Winding's easy listening instrumental hit "More (Theme from Mondo Cane)" and the mating of guitar twang with light dancing orchestration on "Hop, Skip and Jump."- AMG

An unheralded master of cool ‘60s instrumentals, Jan Davis straddled the worlds of the Ventures, the Rockin’ Rebels and the Shadows like a guitar-wielding superhero. Problem was, none of Davis’ eye-popping singles dented the national sales charts, so we’re here to right that wrong with 20 of his most powerful tunes! From the bloodcurdling scream that sucks you into "The Time Funnel" to the mystical swamp gibberish of "Watusi Zombie" or the baying bloodhounds on "Fugitive," we think it’s high time the rest of the world tune in to the sparkling guitar-universe of Jan Davis!

ELEKTRICNI ORGAZAM - Distorzija [1986] Vinyl Rip!!!



ELEKTRIČNI ORGAZAM [Electric Orgasm] formed in 1979, in Belgrade, Serbia (ex-Yugoslavia). Originally starting as a combination of new wave, punk rock and post-punk, the band later slowly changed their style, becoming a mainstream rock act. Their fourth album named "Distorzija" is really one of the best yugo rock records. Almost every song is hit. They melted late 60s Stones r & b sound together with punk energy and great power pop melodies. Here and there they added some psychobilly spices and acid rock magic. With this record they became very popular in whole Yugoslavia. (from jugobeat.com)

ANDRE WILLIAMS - Silky [1998]


After spending most of the '80s and '90s out of music and living on the streets thanks to a severe drug problem, Andre Williams cleaned himself up and cut a new album in 1996, in which he dusted off some of the classic tunes he cut for Fortune Records in the '50s and '60s. But Williams dove head first into the present day with 1998's Silky. Working with Mick Collins and Dan Kroha (formerly of the Gories, now respectively recording with the Dirtbombs and the Demolition Doll Rods), Williams merged his wild and greasy R&B style with Collins and Kroha's noise-spattered, stripped-down, roots-punk assault, and the results are flat-out nuts. On "Agile, Mobile, and Hostile," "I Wanna Be Your Favorite Pair of Pajamas," and "Looking Down at You Looking up at Me," Williams sounds like the world's most spectacularly dirty old man as a squadron of Detroit alt-rock all-stars kick up a wall of rockin' din behind him, and the two side-closers, "Bring Me Back My Car Unstripped" and "Everybody Knew," are Twilight Zone psychodramas so bizarre they defy conventional description. Vintage soul purists will doubtless be horrified by Silky, but anyone wanting to hear the wildest man in '50s R&B getting even wilder 40 years on ought to give Silky a spin at their next stag party or parole hearing. - AMG
SILKY was the triumphant comeback album for veteran R&B wildman Andre Williams, who spent much of the preceding couple of decades out of commission. While he'd made a previous album in the 1990s that reprised some of his early material, this 1998 release found him interacting with his spiritual kin, lowdown garage rockers like Gories/Dirtbombs guitarist Mick Collins (also the album's producer), who met Williams at the halfway point between his unhinged Screamin' Jay Hawkins-ish R&B and their own soul-inflected, deliciously trashy rock & roll. The marriage worked marvelously, and the dirty, quirky blues/soul/rock amalgam wound up winning the aging eccentric a whole new generation of admirers.
