Gravel Volume 5


Gravel 2-3

Gravel Volume 2 continues in the series of rare and ultra obscure garage rock from the 1960s with more unreleased acetates, more hard to find sides and more regional garage rock (from locales like Florida and New York) that have been compiled on other garage rock comps that have since no doubt gone out of print.

There are some true obscurities here that even garage rock collectors may not have heard but obscurities which aren't just being collected for rarities sake. Both the garage rock collector and the garage rock novice should really give these a listen for those few songs which they really need to have in their collection.

This collection on Kumquat May Records, like Volume 1 in this series, is limited to only 500 copies, and while it again is hard to figure out what is rare and what has been compiled before due to the lack of any liner notes, it can be said that most garage comps of this nature give even less information that the Gravel series. Listed with each track to help us out is the band, where the band is from, the song title, and the release label... Gullbuy

The series starts out strong, thanks to a fine mix of unreleased acetates, some hard to find sides and a handful of regional garage rock (from locales like Texas and PA) that have been compiled on other garage rock comps.

There's no doubt that Kumquat May Records decided to put together this series (limited to only 500 copies) based around the 5 unreleased alternate versions and acetates and a few of the astounding uncompiled tracks which are the main reason to get this compilation because they are fantastic. It helps to have a slew of other great garage rock to go along with those rarities. I only wish the compilation came with liner notes to help understand just how great the music is here.

There's nothing quite as exciting as finding unreleased acetates - and when those acetates contain fiery, pounding garage rock it's even better. The 5 unreleased acetates found on Gravel Volume 1 include Yesterday We Laughed (an alternate version) by The Cirkit, And You Believe Me by The Fabulous Courdels, I Want You by The Thorns, Gonna Find A Way by The Jagged Edge, and an alternate version of Baby As Time Goes By by The Moon-Dawgs. And all five of these songs are incredible with only The Fabulous Courdels being a little less than fab.

The original version of The Cirkit's (from Indiana) Yesterday We Laughed was originally released on the Unicorn label and has been compiled on the Quagmire Vol 2 compilation, but Gravel Volume 1 starts out with an incredible, rocking alternate that sounds like the drums are battling it out with the singer and that is worth the price of the entire compilation. There's ripping guitars, scorching vocals, and shaking rattling drums to accompany the whole thing and it just totally rocks.

Another unreleased tune is the fuzzed out rocker called I Want You by The Thorns which has an incredible harmony backing vocal, fuzz guitar and a raunchy lead vocal which is quite close to plea-perfection.

The Jagged Edge's Gonna Find A Way is an upbeat unreleased tune that sounds like The Pretty Things with harmonica and organ battling it out as the vocalist looks for a way out. You won't find better rhythm guitar than this track.

The original version of The Moon-Dawgs' (from New Orleans) Baby As Time Goes By was originally the b-side to You're No Good on the Bofuz label in 1966 and can be found on Highs In The Mid Sixties #13: Texas Part Three - but here we get an organ drenched alternate version which is incredible.

My least favorite unreleased track is called And You Believe Me by The Fabulous Courdels which just has some off key vocals - other than that the scream before the instrumental break and the rhythm is really sweet.

A truly amazing obscurity which has never been compiled and is highly sought after is Houston, Texas' own Thursday's Children - whose Dominoes was originally the b-side to their Air Conditioned Man released on the International Artists label (the same label for the Thirteenth Floor Elevators). This sounds like a garage pop tune that could've been created with the Bosstown sound thanks to its grooving guitar riff, faltering rhythm, handclaps and harmony vocals. Sadly, Jan Pedersen, the lead guitarist and lead vocalist of Thursday's Children, died in 2003 in a freak windsurfing accident, and Texas lost one of its unsung garage rock pioneers. How this band went under the radar for so many years is unexplainable.....---Patrick (read the whole review at Gullbuy)

Gravel Volume 1


From The Kitchen Sink

Born in the early 80's they were one of the most important bands of Brithish rock'n'roll sound, even one of the best british bands. They are one of the first bands who made a sound nowdays we called psychobilly. Their sound mixed rock'n'roll and garage and that make it really savage. Founded in Crouch End (north of UK) they were sticking and alive from 1981 to 1987 touring all along Europe. The members of the band changed in those years but the spirit and writer of almost all the songs was Alec Palao.

"Dinosaurs", their debut album, caught the Stingrays crossing a bridge most other bands would have fallen off, poised between styles that would take them a while to reconcile.

As the time passes the Stingrays changed and their sound turned less savage(you will notice it if you hear their last album). At the end of the life of the band Alec played with the Go-Betweens and the Pogues, getting turned on to folk rock. In 1988 when the band was already disolved an ex-member , Charity Case , created a band called Minux and Alec finished playing in The Sneetches, a band whose sound remember the 60's. From the other members of the band we don't know anything.

During the six years that they were playing edited five albums, six singles and appeared in lot of compilations albums, but if you want to know what's the meaning of savage R'n'R try with their compilation album "the essential stingrays". (wrekingpit)

"The Stingrays ruled. You should all go buy whatever Stingrays records that you can find. There is a CD retrospective called "From The Kitchen Sink" that is quite awesome. Do not be fooled by the other shitty bands that have called themselves The Stingrays. Only one of them ruled."(Carl-Matablog)

Two decades before the Donnas were doing their best to be the "chick Ramones," we had Nikki and the Corvettes, who, besides cranking out some wonderfully catchy pop tunes, had a front woman who was surely many a punk boy's wetdream. Bomp has reissued on CD the band's sole album -- think of a sexed-up punked-up Shangri-Las, fueled by Chuck Berry guitar riffs -- along with their two singles. You get 16 foot-tappin', head-boppin' songs about boys, "Backsteat Love," and dancing that I think would require a supreme effort to NOT enjoy. Bubblegum punk that tastes as good as it looks. (Soundviews)

Nikki & The Corvettes - S/T

Almost as well-known for its cover (the three Slits are half-naked and covered in mud) as for its music, Cut is an ebullient piece of post-punk mastery that finds the Slits' interest in Caribbean and African rhythms smoothly incorporated into their harsher punk rock stylings. Ari Up's wandering voice (a touch like Yoko Ono) might be initially off-putting, but not so much so that it makes listening to the record difficult. Six tracks are revamped from earlier Peel Sessions and sound better for the extra effort (especially "New Town" and "Love and Romance"). With its goofy charm, gleeful swing and sway, and subtle yet compelling libertarian feminism, this is one of the best records of the era.-(AMG)

The Slits - Cut

Mo Dettes' founder Kate Korus was a one-time member of The Raincoats and The Slits, so it makes sense that the Mo Dettes' sound falls in between those two groups. Korus' Swiss-accented vocals establish a (tenuous) connection with Kleenex, the remaining third of the era's all-female post-punk trinity. The Mo Dettes' angular post-punk doesn't teeter on the verge of chaos like the early Raincoats, though; it is tempered with a melodic flair that anticipates the C-86 style of bands such as Carg Carroll's Miaow, while not indulging the Slits reggae fusion, though the spirit of dub might have informed Jane Crockford's nimble bass playing and June Miles-Kingston 's busy drumming style. The Story So Far, the group's only album, contains a remake of their debut single, "White Mouse," retitled "White Mouse Disco"; covers of the Rolling Stones ("Paint It Black") and Edith Piaf ("Milord"), and mildly divergent cuts such as the jazzy "Kray Twins." Echoes of the Mo Dettes and their post-punk sisters can be heard in new groups such as the Vivian Girls and Liechtenstein. (AMG)

Time Bomb High School is much more than another garage tribute to soulful '60s Brit-rock. But the sophomore effort from the Reigning Sound is something less than the band's minimal, country-folk debut. During knockouts like the Rolling Stones-flavored "Straight Shooter" and "I'd Much Rather Be With the Boys," Greg Cartwright and his Memphis combo's sound is as pure, and as well-grounded, as anything since Exile on Main Street. With 14 tracks, however, the material and arrangements are spread just a little too thin, and too many average tunes are allowed in the mix. A bit of a stylistic return for former Oblivians member Cartwright, Time Bomb High School crackles with raucous garage energy. While nothing like the punk/soul primal scream of the musician/songwriter's earlier days, this disc surpasses any reasonable swagger quota. The Reigning Sound's moody, countrified debut had a relative wealth of riveting numbers, and more conceptual clarity, but this 2002 In The Red title will definitely satisfy Cartwright fans as well as listeners wary of the inevitable post-White Stripes garage posers. - AllMusic

Reigning Sound - Time Bomb High School

THE NAZIS FROM MARS came to Earth on their mission to destroy pop music. Because of some technical difficulties their UFO crashed in Holland where they were captured by alien police. After spending some time in alien camps they finally get to continue their mission. Because they like many different music styles they decided to mix them all together and that's how TECHNO PUNK was created - mixture of TECHNO, JUNGLE and GABBA (HARDCORE HOUSE) BEATS and PUNK in style of RAMONES, MISFITS,... but also some garage trash punk. That's as much as you're gonna get of their biography 'cos they don't like to talk much. Well what else can you say about these girls and guys - they simply hate everything and everybody, so don't mess with them too much or you may end up as one more X-File. - GarageBand

The Nazis From Mars - Nazis From Mars

One of the millions of awesome bands to come out of Detroit. Often overlooked this band has released some of the best powerpop/punk from Detroit. Don't be fooled when KBD says this album only house 3 good songs, I asure you there are plenty of killer tracks on this album. Their track, Don't Come Cryin to Me, along is worth the DL.

You could argue that Detroit was a place where '77 punk never really needed to happen, since it -or something just as loud- had been there all along. The important distinction between Detroit bands and "regular" punk -dating back to James Williamson, Dick Wagner and beyond- is that the songs are all, fundamentally, about GUITAR. Great front-men? Sure. But how do you know it's Detroit? The riffs. (This applies to most Australian "punk" as well, thanks to the Detroit exports in Radio Birdman) Cinecyde sported an extraordinary vocalist in Gary Reichel, but their real trademark was Jim Olenski's dense guitar-work.HypedToDeath

Cinecyde -I Left My Heart In Detroit City Lp

One of the best punk bands to ever come out of Spain and highly inspiration to later spanish band. . A 77punk anarcho band. All tracks on here are pretty amazing even if they do use a drum machine.

Eskorbuto (translation:Scurvy), lived fast and died faster. The band was made up by Jualma Suarez (bass and vocals), Iosu Exposito(guitar, vocals) and Paco Galan (drums) in 1980. Jualma and Iosu both dies of overdoses 6 months apart. They gained recognition in the basque punk circles in the early 80’s thanks to their devastating gigs. Their music was highly inspirational, themes of aggression, dark humor, death and politics were often part of their music.

Power pop got off to a rocketing start in the '70s and the demand for it, like most genres and styles, dissipated slowly through the '80s. Like most movements, there are some records and bands that were left in the resin, never to be fully acknowledged for their contributions, whether small or significant. Standing in the shadows of other bands from Max's and CBGB's, Milk 'n' Cookies quietly carved their niche on the circuit, but never received their due from mainstream culture. Their eponymous debut is a session hyped up on the sweetest sugar and soda pop, as the group carves out three-minute numbers that are post-glam but foreshadow the emergence of punk. For die-hard collectors of power pop, this album is a welcome treat to even the most seasoned and jaded of ears. And for those hyped up on the modern-day, cookie-cutter, Johnny-come-lately band of the moment emulating the sound of new wave? This is an absolute textbook essential listening experience. - AllMusic

All Black And Hairy

Well seems like two years ago today I started this blog so I suppose I should celebrate with a post.... Yea its true I haven't posted anything all year I don't know I've just gotten lazy when it comes to these sort of thing. Since I'll be having a lot of free time this summer maybe I'll do more than one post every 6 months. It seems there's several blogs of which I used to follow back in the day that are no longer active.. Chocoreve, O Canadarm, In The Crowd, Lost In Tyme, etc. Hopefully I'll be able to maintain this blog for a long time to come..

First off The Gravedigger V, a 80s garage revival band from San Diego, CA. They do some of my favorite covers of 60s classics such as Hate (The Stoics), Searching (The Omens), Stop It Baby (The Heard), Night of the Phantom (Larry & The Blue Notes) and some others.

The Gravedigger 5 - All Black And Hairy/The Mirror Cracked

If a band ever deserved to be on a label named In the Red, it would be Black Time. They smack listeners upside the head with almost ridiculous amounts of distortion and cave-dwelling reverb -- so much so that it can take a while to get to the snotty, witty garage-punk hiding with the din. It would be easy to accuse a band with such a noisy yet stark sound of repeating itself on each album, but that's not the case: Blackout was more or less straight-up garage-blues-punk, albeit put through a sonic shredder; Midnight World ratcheted the noise up even further and added some art damage; and Double Negative is artfully crude, lightening up on the skronk just enough to let other sounds (and even melodies!) peek through. This might be Black Time's most clearly recorded album, but it's still incredibly harsh, with onslaughts like "Problems" and the fittingly deranged "Institution" proving the band's devotion to distortion. They continue to crank out pissed-off songs in the shape of Detroit garage-punk from the '60s to the 2000s -- there's more than a touch of Stooges howl in "The Days Are Too Long and the Nights Are Too Short," while "Little Death" and "Hostile Cosmos" recall newer acts like the Clone Defects just as Blackout and Midnight World did, but with more focus and energy. As good as they are at reanimating the sounds of their influences, Black Time and Double Negative are at their most exciting when they dive into stranger realms, wielding noise and feedback like Jack the Ripper's knife. With its rave-ups and eerie coda, "When the Clock Strikes Twelve" is as gleefully sinister and anarchistic as anything Screaming Lord Sutch recorded, and carries on that veddy British tradition of spooky garage rock. The brief instrumentals "Lunar Rhythm" and "Lunar Eclipse" nod to bouncy '60s sci-fi kitsch, but the album gets truly eclectic with the rockabilly-tinged ballad "Repulsion" and "Skeleton Factory," which, with its choppy beat and buzzy synths, does sound like something that could rip the flesh off of bones. However, the oddest, and possibly best, song is "I'm Gonna Haunt You When I'm Gone," a lone bright, sweet spot of ghostly indie pop among the rest of the album's pitch-black noise. This is easily some of the band's most varied and most listenable music, but as relatively polished and wide-ranging as Double Negative can be, Black Time never forget to be loud -- their amps always go up to 12 (or is that midnight?). - AMG

Black Time - Double Negative

Kick ass band from New Jersey, one of the best albums I've heard of 2009.
It would make more sense if a majority of the members of Screaming Females were women, but this isn't the case. But the misnomer is quickly abandoned when commanding guitarist, vocalist and sole female of the group, Marissa Paternoster, engages the listener with the wild introductory track, "Bell,” which is the finest track on the record due to dirty, driving grungy guitar parts and Paternoster’s vocals that range from an imposing Joan Jett-esque style to the shriek of a red-tailed hawk. "Skull" demonstrates a bluesy rock vibe with a serious edge and vocals that are comparable to the trademark howls of Grace Slick. Power Move is not an album to be underestimated. It is just as raw as it is original; as beautiful as it is pissed off. - Zachary Ahern-Synthesis
