(scott) I don NOT know Black Spiders, at all, although I have posted many arachnid-based bands on here
before (Lime Spiders, Pink Spiders, Black Widow).......This turned up in my email from John N, he listed it as a "hard rock/metal kind of thing", which is certainly within the confines of the stuff I will accept! Let me have a second to look them up, and we'll talk about them briefly.........
OK, they are from the UK, I've listened to some of the samples, they are no doubt metal-rockers, you can hear Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Metallica, and others among their influences.......really, sounds pretty damn good to me, this will go on the listening list for Thursday......sounds like some damn slamming hard good stuff from here, comments please, this is another new one to me, so let me know what you think by all means!

Hey, rock on......thanks John N......pretty much anything with a "hard" or "metal" or "punk" or "psych" (you get the idea) label on it, I will most likely post......anyway, from the samples I hear of these really do rock out like a mother, in that retro-70's/80's classic metal way, and what ever in the fuck could be wrong with THAT?????
Another submission from John N (and another newer-one, heed my previous advice), Merchandise are a Tampa band that cranks out some perfectly acceptable hard/punk/pop........"A Corpse Wired For Song"), is really, a good album, the parts I've carpet-bombed......actually a pretty damn good one, this is (by my count) their fourth LP, and again, this is another band with which I was unfamiliar.......that's what I like though, EVEREYONE keep sending me these bands I don't know (yet) and treat me to additional education......LOVE hearing me some new and different bands, and THAT, my friend, is the spirit and attitude that I TRY (hard, really) to bring this blog-type-thing to LIFE........enjoy this album, it's good, and another fabulous submission from the global-wide link czar, John N.........like ALL of the rest of my team, I hope he NEVER leaves me, such great submissions!
A CORPSE WIRED FOR SONG-01 Flower of Sex/02 Crystal Cage/03 Right Back to the Start/04 End of the Week/05 Lonesome Sound/06 Shadow of the Truth/07 Silence/08 I Will Not Sleep Here/09 My Dream is Yours
A good one, recommended by myself, at least.
OK, Lewdd is the great team member who shared with us all those fantastic Buzzcocks and Descendents boots, he's sent me a bunch more, and at random, let us start on his Clash shares......now, mind you, I likely have 150 Clash boots myself, which I posted on this site long, long ago (no longer live links)......I checked Lewdd's file and YES he has a metric shit tonne of Clash shows, some of which I already have, some of which I don't, but I'm not sorting them out, you will get EVERYTHING he send to me, with a couple of factors I wish to point out;
1) He states that SOME of these are of good sound quality, some are not......I'm not sorting THAT out, I'm posting them all. If some of them sound shitty, that is life in bootleg-town
2) They will be posted in the order in which he sent them to me, thusly, they will NOT be chronological....it's much easier for me to keep track of them this way, sorry.......

08/31/76 THE 100 CLUB-14 Tracks, unlabeled (Please, someone provide a set list, this is GOLDEN ERA Clash right here, please help me out here, as I can't put all this material up daily without a BIT of help on setlists, etc.......)
I was all set to quit for the evening, (baseball playoffs, a lot more important than you hosers, by the way, Orioles fans, WHAT was Showalter thinking about last night, not using Zach Britton? just mind boggling, and I could give half a fuck about either team)......BUT then I recalled that I DID want to put this album up, listened a couple of days ago and it's great, MORE of that fucking early 1970's hard rock that I love so much (AND some of which is fairly unknown like this one).
Dont know if they ever released another album or not, all I know is this one, the band consisted of singer Peter Stirling, guitarist Alan Parker, drummer Clem Cattini, keyboard player Alan Hawkshaw, and bassist Herbie Flowers......just another one of those zillion classic hard rock albums of the 1968-72 (or so) era that I keep at least TRYING turn you guys onto......this is a great one, too, like a LOT of albums from that era/genre that totally or nearly totally unknown gems..........you guys know I am passionate about this music, and I haven't steered you wrong yet right? (Stray Dog, BF Trike, Dark, and on and on)......
I can just about guarantee that any hard rock/stoner rock fans that understand my infatuation with this era of underappreciated music is going to love this one, it's awesome as are so many of the records of this era.
RUMPLESTILTSKIN-01 Make Me Make You/02 Poor Billy Brown/03 Knock In My Door/04 No One to turn To/05 Mr. Joe (Witness For the Defense)/06 Pate de foie gras/07 Rumplestiltskin/08 Squadron Leader Johnson
Trying these out to see how you all like them, if they go over OK, I have TONS of issues from the more
recent years, personally I have ALWAYS been a huge fan of Playboy, the great writing, the wonderful interviews, and of course, the stunning photography of those motherfucking goddess-types. Anyway, I'm waiting on something else right now, so I'm gonna put up a handful (maybe ten or so) old Playboys ranging in date (I think) from 1955-62......once we gt to 1970+, I have a LOT more, if these are popular I will start semi-regular posting of them........as always, LET ME KNOW......if you aren't crazy
about this kind of post, LET ME KNOW, I always want to keep everyone happy....myself I LOVE old Playboys, and I certainly think/hope that there are a few others who do as well. Please, love these or hate these, but PLEASE tell me one way or the other....I know sometimes the non-music stuff I do seems kind of out of place, but, FUCK IT....I do what I want.........just help me gauge the popularity
(scott) We may have to be a little bit careful with this one, as Brian was with his huge project by the same
artist, the one and only Robert Zimmerman. I think that is what we will refer to him as, hopefully that is under-the-radar enough for our purposes.....anyway, when I saw the track lists, OH MY GOD!!!!!!!
EIGHTEEN (!) discs of bootlegged Zimmerman work, We can all read about it HERE
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ The_Bootleg_Series_Vol._12:_ The_Cutting_Edge_1965%E2%80% 931966
Gotta feeling this one is going to be off the charts popular, so if you get involved with this one (and you certainly ought to), just please don't refer to the Zimmerman boy by that "stage name" he uses......the robots might just smell that out. Anyway, JUST in case, I think I'd act fairly quickly on this one, you just never know, and I'm trying to look out for everyone's best interests. This promises to be an absolute motherfucker, so let's all be REAL COOL and hope it stays around for a little bit of time!
John N sends this one along, I was only slightly familiar with this band, but I carpet bombed some of this
and, well, yes, there is some good stuff here. From Doncaster England, Beachbuggy are Jack Straker on guitars/vocals, Jim VeVee on drums, and AD on bass.....interesting list of influences given by their Wikipedia page.....The Fall, The Wedding Present, Buffalo Tom, and Sonic Youth.....quite an eclectic mix, to be certain, but from what I hear so far, a pretty damn good and somewhat overlooked combo.......
The first album, 1998's "Unsafe at Any Speed", is really a motherfucker, riff rocking punk, and, yep, those influences listed above do come through......."Kill Straker!" is a good one, as is "Firebird Special" and a couple more, to me the whole thing is brought down a notch by the gimmicky auto-racing motifs that recur, BUT don't get me wrong, I do still like this one a good bit.
Their third and final release was "Killer B".......again, the sound does mature somewhat, and that is not necessarily a bad thing, there are some solid rocking tracks here, the title track, "Dirty Mouth", "Deathray", etc, are fairly killer tunes.
This was a good band, they released three 2.5 to 3 star albums, and they do rock. An overlooked band on the part of many, me included, who enjoy some alt/punk.........don't miss these are three GOOD albums you will like!
UNSAFE AT ANY SPEED-01 Radio Ad/02 Kill Straker!/03 Heavy Hitter/04 General Electric/05 San Francisco/06 Hey! Jack/07 Firebird Special/08 Aluminum/09 Four Four Oh/10 Quarter Mile Man/11 The Driver
SPORT FURY-01 Kickin' Back/02 Good Guys Wear Black/03 Touch My Stuff (You Can Die)/04 From
the South/05 Science Fiction/06 Godspeed My Friend/07 It Might Be the Jets/08 The Fastest Time/09 Just a Little Punk/10 Cuba/11 Tom's Dead/12 Radio Ad (Italia)
KILLER B-01 Untitled/02 Killer Bee/03 Fire In My Eye/04 Oh Wow!/05 Strip City Heights/06 Strike!/07 Dirty Mouth/08 Easycome Easygo/09 Ah Oooh/10 The Hitt/11 Very Bad Thing/12 Deathray/13 Radio Ad (Japan)
Good good stuff from the great source that IS John N.....these are good albums, I thank him for allowing me to add them to MY stash, I'm thinking more than a few of you may feel the same way......
A fairly (I think) unknown crew from Austin Texas, pure late 70's-early 80's power pop, and nothing but.....if you want something else, you came to the wrong place today......I can't find much factual information about them, I simply have this one album ("The Explosives '79-'82"), which has a number of the gently rocking tracks that made the power pop of that fab era so fucking wonderful.......if, like me, you enjoy occasionally stumbling upon a previously unknown power-pop gem from the early 80's, this is one you will want to check out.....I've got LOTS more of em, of course, and I dunno, I might feel a "power pop" mood/phase coming on........we'll see....but for now, let me know what you think of The Explosives, somewhat semi-catchy power pop!
THE EXPLOSIVES '79-'82-01 Saftey In Numbers/02 Come Here and Do It/03 Sellin Out/04 I Go Insane/05 I Wanna See You Cry/06 Stuck in the Ball Turret/07 Dancing All Night/08 Very First Time/09 Lonely Street/10 A Girl Like You/11 If I Touch Her/12 I'm an Explose/13 I Won't Go Back/14 Fortress Europe/15 Tommy and Toni/16 Dog Star/17 UFO/18 Summertime Come/19 Come Clean
This one out of the vast BigScott62 collection, there is a BUNCH more of this stuff if you guys want obscure 80's power pop, just say so, you'll get more than you dreamed possible!
An old fave of mine, that have been featured here at least once or twice.....in case you don't know, Blue
Cheer were the ultimate in ugly, grinding, sludge rock, and they put out two FAB albums of the same.....I've posted these before, but, as previously, I think my first posts were vinyl rips (NOT necessarily a bad thing), but I DO happen to have some digital editions of their two amazing albums (yes, I know about their "other" albums.....my opinion: they suck. PERIOD).....so, I am going to re-up the two CLASSIC Blue Cheer issues, in glorious (or not) digital format, these albums are so loud and sludgy, they are ABSOLUTE classics, this is just another opportunity for you to check them and be part of the "down with Blue Cheer" club......no kidding, "Doctor Please" from "Vincebus Eruptum" is on the first disc of BigScott's "What Is Heavy Metal?" project, and the rest of this sludgy stuff is that good, loud, UGLY rock n roll that any of us former/present drug fiends have GOT to love!.....
So without further ado, and since I couldn't think of anything else to put up today, here, motherfucker, are the GREAT Blue Cheer! (Longtime readers will recall that last time I posted a live boot with these, the rason I didn't this time is simple: it REALLY kind of sucks).
VINCEBUS ERUPTUM-01 Summertime Blues/02 Rock me Baby/03 Doctor Please/04 Out of Focus/05 Parchment Farm/06 Second Time Around
OUTSIDEINSIDE-01 Feathers From Your Tree/02 Sun Cycle/03 Just a Little Bit/04 Gypsy Ball/05 Come and Get It/06 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction/07 The Hunter/08 Magnolia Caboose Babyfinger/09 Babylon
This is CLASSIC shit here, if you are a newb to THIS stuff, you MUST get with the program!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(scott)- Naz has been around for a bit, but I don't think he's sent us any material before......so, right now,
he's giving us some classic DAMNED albums, and not a one of us is going to turn THAT down, right? Thiws blog is open to ANYONE who wishes to submit any KILLER ROCK N ROLL, and welcome to NAZ if he wishes to be a regular contributor........these two albums are CLASSICS, nothing but, and let us thank Naz for sending them........Naz, please join the "team" and submit often.......I LOVE the submissions, and the readers love them too......helps make us what we "are"......great submissions, and PLEASE continue to send em in, we'll get em posted, THAT part I promise!
I didn't see these on the blog, and they are a couple of my favorite punk albums... hell a couple of my favorite albums period. Both are by The Damned.

You can just call me "Naz" in posts... this EMAIL ADDRESS is listed as "Naz Nomad" but I have posted in comments on the site as "Naz Fride" a couple of times from my Google+ account. They are both me, so it's simpler to just call me Naz I guess.
I hope you like these. My tastes run to old-school punk, British Invasion, rockabilly, garage, psychedelia and stuff like that, but I love all kinds of music, from Dylan, Costello and Bowie to doo-wop and funk. I hope I have more stuff you're INTERESTED IN. Glad to help out if I can.
Sent by John N as a completer for the earlier Beachbuggy post.......Groop Dogdrill released a couple of albums after Beachbuggy had called it a day, And John has done us a favor AGAIN by sending to us for our inspection.......first we have 1998's "Half Nelson", quite a decent effort ....with it's rocakbilly undertones it might remind you perhaps of Reverend Horton Heat or somebody like that, but basically what we here is "good time, party" rock n roll, and nothing wrong with that.....
They released a (somewhat) similar effort, "Every Six Seconds", actually a more sophisticated writing effort to say the very least,
which is respectable as well.....the band's semi-obsession with Americana and American Culture (The Rolling Stones did the same thing, although a LOT more skillfully, obviously) make the songs somewhat interesting, and keep ya listening to the lyrics. All in all, you could do a LOT worse than to grab these, if you're just looking for, you know, something "different", ???

Like I said before, there are so many of these that it's my preference to GET THEM POSTED, and then
listen to them afterwards......chances are, I'd bet money, that some of them sound like shit......but I havcae no idea which, I guess you can find out. TONS, though, of Clash stuff this fellow has (Same guy that had all the Descendents/Buzzcocks), myself I've got and have posted before something like 200 Clash boots, adn so what as they are one of he best bands I've had the pleasure of seeing (My 24th Birthday (I think) 05/02/62 at Dayton Ohio.......rocking show, and I'm sure more of these discs are "great" than the opposite!

Normally I don't make these type of comments, but, damn, FOUR Clash boots all from 1976? I'd my jumping on that similar to the way I would jump on Rose McGowan, lying before me, legs spread.....Oh, sorry, never mind..........
Acid Black Cherry is the name of the solo project of Japanese musician Yahu, after his band Janne Da Arc
disolved or whatever they did......whatever, though, it's exciting to be able to provide you with three totall BANGIN albums of hard rock....(and you know my theory that non-English language shit is fab....so If you don't think so, sorry, but you are gonna hafta deal with that, because the three albums that I have here are PRETTY FUCKING GREAT, been listening to them today, some, and these are some DAMNED intersting Japanese pop/metal efforts, likely, unlike anything you've heard......now I can't know THAT for sure, but I do know this: these are three bad-ass albums.......see what you think, and of course, think about what we are trying to do here.....It's about the rock n roll, man........the rock n roll. That's how I was raised up, and it's gonna stay that way, until whatever, but you'll look like you just ain't in the groove should you miss these fucking fab albums.......trust me they fucking ROCK! I'm personally telling you, you don't want to miss these there great, fucking hard rocking albums!
(As always, when I have albums that are in a language that my computer won't replicate, well, I wind up with songs titled (MP3#1) or something like that......well, especially in this case.....if you miss these albums, it is your loss, as there is some great hard rock/alt pop on these sides......NOT fucking kidding around here, some great music, been really enjoying it today!

This stuff is not to be missed.......I really enjoyed he fuck out of it, seriously, I hope like fuck you do as well....NOT dicking around here, these are some fantastic hard rocking albums, just don't miss em coz you have a "thing" about non-English rock.....here are three discs of it, and all three arae fucking SLAMMING!
And how about another early 1980's power-popping gem, this one from that fab land down under.......I had forgotten about this one, but sometimes when I'm thinking "what to post today", someimes my mind wanders to some strange locals......so, anyway, you know I love the strange power pop of the early 1980's, tp me, single albums from one-shot knockoffs like Jimmy & the Boys (this was actually their second effort, anyone have 1981's "Not Like Everybody Else"? Never heard a note of it, BUT after popping this one in after so many unheard years, I gotta say YES the power pop scene of the early 80's produced as many GREAT unknown albums as did, oh, say, the grunge rock of the early 90's, the glam of the mid 70's, of course, the killer heavy psych of the early 70's, the insane psych of the mid 60's, the stoner rock of more recent years....often times a scene "explodes" and it takes a whole to get the good albums sorted out.....
Actually a really good one here, hope you can find time to check this one, reminds me (EVER so slightly of maybe The Len Price Three), but this, like the rest of the period pieces that I talk about so often, this, like so many, can stand on it's own.......good album, and a forgotten one as well........hey this is what i DO, right, I hope you guys get a crack at this album, it really IS a good one.
TEDDY BOYS PICNIC-01 Products of the Mind/02 Mirror Mirror/03 Get Off My Cloud/04 Brave New World/05 Teddy Boy's Picnic/06 They Won't Let My Girlfriend Talk To Me/07 Out of Phaze/08 Man of Steel/09 Love is Cheap/10 Pretty Boys/11 Don't Shoot
Tell ya what, this is a damn good album.......3.5 star maybe? I was really surprised that it was so much better than what I had remmebered......a REALLY good one, I say that a good bit, BUT when something happens to encapsulate an entire era/scene AND function as a fairly unknown gem, well, might just be me, but I thought that was why we all be here to begin with, right-o?
Gotta LOVE the facial expressions......
Years ago, in one of his (brilliant) Baseball books was criticizing the way baseball votes for it's all star game.....he said (mind you this was probably 1992 or so) if we ran Presidential elections the way baseball chooses the all-star game, eventually we would wind up with someone like David Duke or (wait for it) Donald Trump as a president.......mind you, he meant this as a JOKE!
Anyway, enjoy the video, another classic from the Trump collection:
(scott) Along with the zillion Clash boots I posted a year or two ago, the seemingly endless Lewdd
collection of classic Clash stuff, and now Jon S chipping in HIS Clash stash, this could be ALL YOU EVER NEED for your Clash listening purposes! There will be some overlap, for certain, (I am NOT going to sort them out, too much work), but chances are, if the Clash released it, it is either 1) below, in Jon S's deep stash, 2) coming, in the multi-part Lewdd post, or 3) something I have that you might have to ask for. But this just MIGHT, taken as a whole, be the most comprehensive set of Clash rarities/boots ever assembled (i don't really mean that in the context of figuring out what actually IS the most comprehenisve set of Clash boots ever assembled)........anyway, as always, thanks to Jon S, who really goes the extra mile in assembling these amazing mega-posts for us. The Clash were one of the greatest, and you can use the resources available here to have the greatest Clash record collection in the universe! "The Only Band That Matters"!!!!!!!!
Tremendous punk band from Northern Ireland, ca. late 70's/early 80's......bassist/vocalist Greg Cowan,
guitarist Colin Getwood, rhtyhm guitarist Martin Cowan, and drummer Colin Cowan.....no question a "singles" band as so many of the punk bands, especially European ones of the era, can be classified. Lotsa cover versions, some often staggering live sessions, loud, snarling punk in spirit, of, oh, maybe an Irish Stiff Little Fingers, if that makes any sense to you.....hey we ALL love the great punk of the late 70's and early 80's, as with most genres, when we dig deep, we find some wonderous stuff........these are gems of that great bygone era. Play loud!

No posts yesterday did ya miss us? The 5-0 Vikings were busy crushing the overmatched Houston Texans.....I will suspend much comment on the Vikings FOR NOW (as I am not totally sold), but I will say they have already won as many games as I predicted they would.
Anyway, let's get a bunch of music-type stuff posted today.....this is yet another John N submission, it's a "Tribute Album"......let's play a game and see if you can guess who is being tributed! BECAUSE, not too long ago, I tried to do a comprehensive post on the "tributee" in question, and it was QUICKLY yanked, so, as per policy, I didn't finish it......good stuff, too, I had lots of boots, rarities, etc, and never got to post them.....hmmmmmm....well, I've described this artist as THE most depressing/depressed songwriter of them all, and very few would argue with that (although he has written some stunningly beautiful songs), as he obviously had depression problems, based upon his work and his eventual suicide.
Likely you know whom it is by now, if not, you'll get it.....I never knew this tribute album existed, and I haven't spun it yet, but I think it's a cool enough idea that we need to share this one around......Waxahatchee, who have been blog-semi-regulars for a short while now, appear on this one, as do J Mascius, Lou Barlow, Amanda Palmer, Tonya Donelly, and others.......if that isn't an esoteric enough partial list for ya, I don't know what, but I WILL add in the fact that MY PERSONAL favorite song by the artist in question (shhhhh...."King's Crossing" is it's title) is NOT covered here, but be advised, this guy, despite his issues, was a BRILLIANT songwriter, making a decent tribute album......OK, no more hints, you know it or you don't, just that this IS a brilliant writer, so (I'll get back to ya) I assume this is a good one......I think I'd recommend expedience to you if you wish to try this, as this IS one I've had a problem with before (not just "rumored" problems or a rep for problems).......try it out, report back, and enjoy, but please don't mention his name. I'm sorry we have to sometimes do things this way.
Thanks as always to John N, link king of the galaxy!
Ah, why not, it's about time I dragged this one out.......Dread Zeppelin.......are ya familiar? This can be quite
amusing, in small doses, we get some Led Zeppelin tunes (among others), set to reggae beats, and as a special bonus, Elvis Presely-style vocals.......I found this shit quite amusing some 25 years ago or so, had pretty much forgotten about them, but, someone asked me the other day, and yep, I happen to have a large "torrent"-style collection.....in other words, no "proper" albums here, but a TON of tracks, strung together in good ol' alphabetical order in a nice, big, Pirate Bay posting from God knows how many years ago......
Lord knows, this stuff does wear thin pretty quickly, BUT I think a handful of ya might appreciate the dumb humor involved here. I find it quite amusing, perhaps you will as well, don't worry, there is no huge landslide of these boyos on the horizon, but I do try to keep things diverse/mixed up for my peeps........btw, any of you have any legit "proper" Dread Zep LP's? Share em up now if ya do, let's see what they are all about! (unsure, but I MAY not have ever heard one in album format)........
Here we go, enjoy it, Mon, if ya don't like this one, gimme a few minutes and I'll get some more goodies up, I'm thinking you get a LOT of posts today after I took yesterday off! (hey, football season AND the baseball playoffs AND my divorce all going on at the same time? And yet I STILL find the time to enthrall you with these incredible slices of sound? I can hardly think of a word that would describe me!)
One can program this however one wishes, obviously, as we don't have the "albums" per se.......just don't take it all TOO seriously, have a laugh, and if ya got any shares, you know where I am!

we keep the "Hey Man Zep Rules man why You make fun of them Man, You Suck Man, I hate you Man......oh, and can you repost that Radiohead show from five years ago?" -type posts to a minimum......this shit is fairly funny, although I will even admit there is likely more of this stuff here than you could ever possibly need!
Another of those fab John N submissions, as well as another fab band from Austrailia, here are two good albums of semi-rocking shoegaze stuff.......i have listened to these, and, actually, I enjoyed them a good bit, which is why I am posting them (I don't post EVERYTHING that is sent to me, trust me).....I was not familiar with this band prior to the submittal, but, yes, I find both of these albums, pretty good.....not great, but certainly of the 2.5 star level, and there is certainly not an issue with that. ("Life Admin" is the recent release, ie last couple of weeks, and "Exotic Goldfish Blues" is from a couple years back, 2013 to be exact......these are both pretty fair efforts, see what you may think.......as always, searching the corners of the universe with my blogging crew in order to bring you some DIFFERENT rock n roll.....hope ya like it, if not, we'll get something else up today......
EXOTIC GOLDFISH BLUES-01 Nice Fit/02 Day Release/03 Holy Hell/04 One In a While/05 Petrov's Clouds/06 just For a Minute/07 Georgina/08 Gettin' On/09 Littoral Drift/10 Want It All/11 Crash Cars
LIFE ADMIN-01 Moving to Melbourne/02 Give and Take/03 No One Else/04 Young Professionals/05 Harsh Truths/06 Cost of Living/07 Life Admin/08 Hungarian Heritage/09 Such a Star/10 Wouldn't It Be Nice
Thanks of course go to John N for these ones, another excellent choice to submit.
