I know you know already, i have a bad thing going on with most moptops of the so-called 80s garage revival scene, right? OK, i know many of 'em were at least good in what they were doing BUT... I don't like fashion and to me first come the music an' not the outfits, the hair, the glasses and/or the Cuban heels. There was a band then, that started in the late 70s, right in the midst of the "trend" of punk in both sides of the Atlantic ocean, and had the GUTS and the BALLS to play rootsy, filthy bad ass R&B, the way Pretties, Them and Downliners (OK, Stones too) taught us. Hailed from America (San Diego), even though their sound was deeply soaked on those Brits mentioned above. John Peel dug them a LOT, Mike Stax in their favor dumped homeland, flew there, joined in and all the rest's by now to more of you, a well known history (Tell Tale Hearts, Ugly Things Mag etc). Their appropriate look on classic sides by John Lee Hooker, Willie Dixon, Lazy Lester or Chuck Berry were SUPERB and their name of course picked up by the legendary London R&B club where the Stones and the Yardbirds started to make an impact. A punkier/punchier approach on what many pub rock bands played in England (is this punk or what?). Except for a fully influential & satisfying LP, this was VOXX's first number, the child label of Greg Shaw's Bomp!, almost entirely responsible for what good or bad came out from then til now under the term of 'Garage'! Recorded on a friend's of Greg Shaw (what else?) garage for the total production cost of 12$!!! Hear this platter and come tell me back if you still consider the Fuzztones or the Chesterfields as the best...

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.”
International DIY punk fanzine, radio show, and record label. By the punks, for the punks since 1977...
NO corporate advertising! NO donations! We're bloggers not beggars...
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.
