New Bomb Turks

Most garagepunk fans have heard of these guys. But for those that havent heres and introduction to their music...

Destroy-Oh-Boy! is the kind of full-on flamethrower album that could make the most jaded cynic believe once again in the curative powers of punk rock. On this set, the New Bomb Turks combine 1950s and 1960s roots rock at it's rawest, '70s punk at it's snottiest, and '80s hardcore at it's most intense. Then they filter out what's lame, put the good stuff together, and send it down the track at 150 miles per hour. The results are wild, frantic, and thoroughly enjoyable; Jim Weber's fuzzy guitar communicates nearly as much through the power of downstroke as Johnny Ramone himself, bassist Matt Reber, and drummer Bill Randt push the horsepower into the red with a fury that is a wonder to behold, and Eric Davidson proves he's one of the great frontmen of 90s punk: smart, funny, wise-ass when he wants to be, and possessing a genuine sense of purpose. From the moment they crash into "Born Toulouse-Lautrec," the New Bomb Turks grab your ears and won't let go, and you won't mind a bit. Points added for a great garage-style cover of Wire's "Mr. Suit."-amg

The New Bomb Turks - Destroy-Oh-Boy!

The New Bomb Turks' debut album, Destroy-Oh-Boy!, made clear they were the Midwest's great new hope for old-school punk rock, and on their follow-up, Information Highway Revisited, they didn't change their tune much — they just got better at it. Recorded on a lavish four-day schedule, Information Highway Revisited sounds marginally more polished than Destroy-Oh-Boy!, but it's more a matter of cleaner engineering than any attempt to impose a slick production on this band; the higher-quality audio allows one to hear more of the band's nooks and crannies, and it turns out they're worth hearing, especially in Jim Weber's guitar and Eric Davidson's vocals. The songs show the Turks can pack a lot of variety into their supercharged three-chord ravers, with undercurrents of Rolling Stones-style R&B and Sonics-esque garage thunder lurking clearly beneath the surface.-amg

The New Bomb Turks - Information Highway Revisted


In Mass Mind

I recommend this album to any music fan those who like garage, soul, indie, punk, funk, gospel you name it this band will appeal to everyone. Check out other albums by them, they are such an amazing band. The music speaks for itself there was no review out there that came close to describing their music.

The Make-Up - In Mass Mind


Dead Milkmen

From Philadelphia, PA 80s punk band The Dead Milkmen.

It may not be deathless, but 1984's Big Lizard in My Backyard is that rarest of beasts a collection of rock & roll silliness that outlives one playing. That mid-'80s favorite "Bitchin' Camaro" already demonstrated that ability plenty of times over. Portraying two guys yammering about Doors cover bands and "going down to the shore" before finally getting to the main point — the way-cool car of the title — it somehow finds the lost gap between pseudo-jazz grooves and punky snottiness. As left field a fluke hit single as it gets, its mix of bad taste, rock-star mockery and stoner humor still works well. As a whole, the album shows that the Milkmen know their rock & roll history, whether tackling serious issues with sarcasm or just aiming for straight-up silliness - amg

The Dead Milkmen - Big Lizard In My Backyard

A step up from the good but not great Eat Your Paisley (2nd album), Bucky Fellini begins with a parody of the bandmember introductions from Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz" and raises another fun and funny stink. The most entertaining and ridiculous thing the band ever did takes deserved center stage — "Instant Club Hit (You'll Dance to Anything)." Consisting of drum machine fills, intentionally basic basslines and Rodney Anonymous' instantly recognizable sneer, it's a hilarious, all-too-knowing rip on '80s new wave / dance culture. With lines like "Oh, baby, look at you, don't you look like Siouxsie Sioux" and "'I met Andy Warhol at a really chic party/Blow it out your hair, dude, cuz you work at Hardee's!" it's hilarity personified (and bizarrely enough won them an appearance on an MTV dance show, where they encouraged a bout of stage diving). Nothing equals that song's sublime satire, but the Milkmen still stir things up with a touch more fire and sass than before. - amg

Singer guitarist Joe Jack Talcum now plays with The Low Budgets, check them out if you're ever in the city or if they play in your town.


Cross Road Blues

If the blues has a truly mythic figure, one whose story hangs over the music the way a Charlie Parker does over jazz or a Hank Williams does over country, it's Robert Johnson, certainly the most celebrated figure in the history of the blues. Of course, his legend is immensely fortified by the fact that Johnson also left behind a small legacy of recordings that are considered the emotional apex of the music itself.-amg

Preachin' The Blues

Son House's place, not only in the history of Delta blues, but in the overall history of the music, is a very high one indeed. He was a major innovator of the Delta style, along with his playing partners Charley Patton and Willie Brown. Few listening experiences in the blues are as intense as hearing one of Son House's original 1930s recordings for the Paramount label. Entombed in a hailstorm of surface noise and scratches, one can still be awestruck by the emotional fervor House puts into his singing and slide playing.-amg

Tube City!

Tube City!: The Best of The Trashmen adds their Garrett singles to their lone 1964 album Surfin' Bird. That classic single is here in all of its raw, unfettered glory, and while it does tend to overshadow the rest of the Trashmen's output, the collection shows that their other work was also strong. Their covers of "Miserlou," "It's So Easy," and "Money (That's What I Want)" reflect the band's roots, and aren't overly respectful of the original versions, while "My Woodie" and "Kuk" are respectable surf-pop songs. The Trashmen's instrumentals also fare well, particularly "Tube City" itself , the flamenco-surf of "Malaguena," and "Bird Dance," a silly, tiki-bird infested bid to follow up the success of "Surfin' Bird." "Bird Dance Beat" follows suit, but songs like "Bad News," "Whoa! Dad," and "Real Live Doll" have as much energy, but a little more originality. While it's not as complete as the four-disc box Bird Call!: The Twin City Stomp of the Trashmen, Tube City!: The Best of The Trashmen is still the definitive look at the first part of their career. - amg

From Boston one of my favorite power pop groups, The Neighborhoods. These guys shared the stage with The Speedies, The Busy Signals, and The Baby Shakes at Radio Heartbeats Power Pop Fest back in March. But the show sold out before I bought my ticket :(.. Well Im looking forward to going to the next years fest

The Neighborhoods - The High Hard One



The first Headcoatees LP and in my opinion their best.

Thee Headcoatees - Girlsville


The Hardest Walk

Though it doesnt compare to their great first album, The Hardest Walk is still worth a listen.

Soledad Brothers - The Hardest Walk


Songs The Lord Taught Us

Conjuring a fiendish witches' brew of primal rockabilly, grease-stained '60s garage rock, vintage monster movies, perverse and glistening sex, and the detritus and effluvia of 50 years of American pop culture, the Cramps are a truly American creation much in the manner of the Cadillac, the White Castle hamburger, the Fender Stratocaster, and Jayne Mansfield.-AMG

Superfuzz Bigmuff

Garage/punk/grunge call it what you want...

"Mudhoney were truly the band that made the '90s grunge rock movement possible. Mudhoney were the first real success story for Sub Pop Records; their indie-scene success laid the groundwork for the movement that would (briefly) make Seattle, WA, the new capital of the rock & roll universe; and they took the sweat-soaked and beer-fueled mixture of heavy metal muscle, punk attitude, and garage rock primitivism that would become known as "grunge"-AMG
