The Cannibals - "The Rest of The Cannibals" (GMG, 1985)

Oi! What's up? I'm writing you these lines outta home for business, from a low limit access wi-fi connection of a semi-good hotel, here in Thessaloniki. Not much time for babble and not in a good cheer either. So, what we got here's maybe thee best 'album' of Mike Spenser's Cannibals. Or for better, the logical next step for someone looking for an expedient for the first Count Bishops line up. I wish Mike had done more with the Bishops but hey, that's a mighty fine kick ass rock & roll record too! The punkish R&B we all like here, with a more 60s garage approach on this. And that means sloppy fun playing by the band and its countless members, tons of beer cans (of course empty!) and disposal for savageness! Something like the Inmates in a possessed Motorhead state! 'The Rest of the Cannibals' is a compilation, probably never re-released on digital format with all the groups singles circa 1977 - 1979, "Good Guys" included (yep - the Standells classic), which is their first and John Peel's favorite. Cheers!
*A Jean-Philippe rip and offering

  8. You may or not believe this, but who cares...the Cannibals are about to release an album of all new(ish) original stuff 1/2 recorded eons ago with some fresh recordings. Look out for stonking versions of "Little Miss Prissy", "Cry Wolf", "I want Someone To Love Me", "Psychosymatic", "Don't Throw Me Away" and about a dozen other songs, still dripping with original Vox fuzzness and Farfisa "in your face" extra sound! Mike Spenser told you this!
