Various Artists - "Ugly Things, the CD" (Raven, 1992)
On the last UGLY THINGS magazine (issue #30 - Summer 2010), have placed a cool article by Johan Kugelberg on great (at least) and influential 60s punk compilations that grew up generations of misfits (here's another one) which makes a passing through the "Back From The Grave" series of Crypt, "the Chosen Few" volumes (by A-Go-Go), the "Garage Punk Unknowns" Volumes by Stone Age (Hmmm, OK - Crypt) or the small "Nuggets" brother, the "Pebbles". Of course there are (thank God!) millions out there and with all these blogspots around, day by day become zillions. Sure the article has "missings" but hey, this guy wrote his favorites. Everybody got some. More or less i agree with all the selections that Johan made, but I'm still wondering why he'd left out an obvious choice... The one that has the same name with the magazine that extends hospitality on the aforementioned piece. The one that turned our heads to Australia and had inside his grooves all the bastard kids of the Pretty Things (don't forget what the pretties did there...). And I'm talking about Raven's "Ugly Things" series! Originally on LP format (4 volumes) with the first one (and the best of them all) on the streets back in 1980 and the last in 1989. Here's the "best of" CD version of the four; and believe me the one you really need to chase. From here have started my obsession with the Missing Links, the Chants R&B and the Purple Hearts. 26 over the top R&B savage punkers, the way Phil May and Dick Taylor taught 'em. Dirty riffs, pounding drums and walking screams in a 70 minutes full throttle mayhem!
Many thanks to the original ripper of this (at first a torrent), I owe him a lot.You NEED this album! 320 Kbps

Desperately Wanted!!! The Wylde Mammoths – "They Walk They Talk They Crawl Like Reptiles "
Anyone's sitting on the (quite possibly) Mammoths' demo tape and wanna share it with me? According to Discogs, this is the one that led Tim Warren sign them! Recorded in 1986 in Peter Maniette's basement in a Beovox reel to reel and later dumped to porta studio (cassette). I'll kill for this Nugget!!! Thanx.

JOHNNY THUNDERS - "So Alone [Exclusive European 40th Anniversary Edition]"
***CLICK IMAGE TO BUY*** "Johnny Thunders’ career-peak album ‘SO ALONE’ which Johnny years later acknowledged was “the best record I ever made”. It spawned his most popular single ‘YOU CAN’T PUT YOUR ARMS ROUND A MEMORY’ which featured prominently in the award winning HBO TV series ‘The Sopranos’ and Scorsese’s film ‘BRING OUT THE DEAD’. It’s an unmissable all-time classic. It’s essential, it’s limited, it’s Johnny Thunders at the peak of his powers."
MORE FUN - "Teenage Sensation! The Best Of More Fun"
CLICK IMAGE TO BUY "Even better, we could say that whatever Bomp!’s Greg Shaw would call power pop, that’s power pop. But no matter how you interpret this genre, More Fun definitely fits the bill."

...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!

This is a space 'bout real rock n' roll, created with the hope to promote interest in devil's music! My only intention is to share my passion, entertain and maybe educate. I'm not against file sharing, clearly. A serious music lover won't stop buying records and CDs anyway, even if he/she got 'em on computer files too. 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. Record labels like the ones you see on the links panel must CONTINUE in any purpose on what they're doing. 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.
