Johnny Thunders & Jerry Nolan - "Countdown Love" (7inch Single - Sucksex Records - Sex13 - 1997)
How many of you out there do you know who Freddy Lynxx is? Not many huh? Well, Freddy's a French (with Croatian) roots rock & roller who's mostly known as a Thunders copycat... Fuck NO! Freddy is one of the few that huge admirers of Thunders/Heartbreakers/New York Dolls family that did SO MUCH about keeping their legacy alive, in a time that these cats were so un-hip (that is for so many years). Not that today are within the 'in' list of the wider audience, but at least much more seem to know and respect the New York's cuties. He got a band (well, actually two) that kicked serious ass, the Jetboys and the Corner Gang, which did magnificent albums of pure n' adrenalin-driven street rock n' roll and a label under the 'Sucksex' moniker, that putted out at times unbelievable rare & unreleased toons of the Dolls/Heartbreakers familia. I wish someday catch him, even through the net for an interview...
Anyway, this thing here it's a housewreckin' two-sider, featuring of course the two late pals, Johnny & Jerry with the recordings they did at different times and different places of the "Countdown Love". The last, it's one of the strongest moments of the Hearbreakers and it's a fuckin' shame that never recorded this dynamite officially. The song is written by Jerry Nolan and had also a third Heartbreaker approach, through Walter Lure as he recorded it for the Waldos SUPERB album, "Rent Party". Johnny Thunders Side, are with the "Que Sera Sera" line up, mostly known as the Black Cats.It was recorded in 1985 at Tin Pan Alley Studio (London, England) and on track's background vocals are Stiv Bators and Michael Monroe! Even though what they just did was some 'ahhhhssss' and 'oooohhhhssss', it's for sure and historical moment.
On Jerry Nolan's Side we found Nigs with the Teneriffa Cowboys backing him (whatta band!) and it's easily the best execution of the song of the two versions here (my favorite still is by the Waldos!). It was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden (a place where at the time Jerry lived) back in 1983 at Decibel Studios.
That's for sure a great addition for all the Dolls/Heartbreakers fanatics out there, but if you came here and you'll never heard something else, you MUST GO AND BUY NOW the two New York Dolls LPs plus the Heartbreakers' "L.A.M.F." and leave this rarities for later. Final Note: To this blogger, the Heartbreakers still are the best rock n' roll band ever and Tom Petty should change his band name NOW. Never too late for this, you square millionaire... 320 Kbps

Kurt Baker - "Brand New Beat"
Imagine for a moment that Elvis Costello wasn’t an aging millionaire but a young up-and-coming songwriter with big hair and even bigger tunes, channeling the Ramones and Cheap Trick along with a healthy helping of Stiff-era British guitar pop. Kurt’s powerful pipes are eerily reminiscent of the early Costello at his poppiest, and today is the day with this record!” - Shake Some Action! ***CLICK IMAGE TO BUY***

White Trash Soul Hero: Jerry Leiber (April 25, 1933 – August 22, 2011)
...on Bob Dylan: “A sloppy, white motherfucker with no rhythm” and what bothers him most about Dylan: “His father was a pharmacist.” I don’t know, Jerry. What the fuck does that mean? “What does it mean? Doesn't that just say it all?" R-E-S-P-E-C-T!
Nick Curran (September 30, 1977 - October 6, 2012)
“Let’s say when I was first going with the T-Birds, the last thing I wanted to do was go up there and look like Jimmie Vaughan – which a lot of people would try to do. So I’m like, well, if I’m gonna play guitar with the T-Birds, I’m gonna have to look like Sid Vicious or something. That’s what I did and a lot of people didn’t like it. But at the same time, I was kind of telling people, hey, listen with your ears, not your eyes. You don’t have to play a ’50s Stratocaster and wear vintage suits to play blues.”

Originally this "White Trash Soul" thing was meant to be a real printed magazine...
You know, one of those rare things today that you put on library and you are able to have them anywhere (par example....toilet).
Many reasons made me to do it this way. So let's go interactive! This is a place about real Rock N Roll! Cheers!
This is a space 'bout real rock n' roll! Created with the hope to promote interest in this devil's music. My only intention is just to share my passion, entertain and maybe educate. As you can easily understand I'm not against file sharing. I strongly believe that a music fan must be able to give a listen first before buy. A serious music lover won't stop buying records even if he/she got them on computer files. I know it and I know it well. If someone owns the rights to these recordings and wants me to remove the links, contact me on the blog's e-mail (see "Want List" window) and I'll do it swiftly.I STRONGLY RECOMMEND visitors to buy these records if they like them. Record labels like the ones you see on the links panel, MUST CONTINUE in any purpose on what they're doing. And they do excellent work on keeping real rock n' roll out in the streets. Help keep those labels going in these difficult times. PS: No time for Re-Ups, sorry (except if the comments panel's packed with such requests), so act quickly.
