Guttercat & The Milkmen - "Ballad Of A Drunk Man/Rock 'N' Roll Lingers" (7"- WISH 001, 2008) & "Lonely Tears In The Dark/Love Is Better In A Dream" (7" - WISH 002, 2008)
Another cool dump finding! You know, when me and my wife
moved to our new house three years ago, naturally (for her and most women I guess…)
and sadly (for me and all the guys came through this, basically all married) MANY
things wouldn’t fit to our new home’s formation (grrrrr!). What can you do,
democracy is democracy and you have to live with your own decisions (OK it’s not
that bad and of course I'm joking, but I never gulped the fact that I have to live separately from many of my books, some of my
zines and quite a lot of my CDs)… The good part of this is that from time to time
I go down there to see what can I resurrect for me and for you (and find some privacy with the good excuse of settling a little the basement). Guttercat &
the Milkmen was (is still?) a cool French band. And I mean way cool. OK
obviously they not reinvented the wheel, but they play rock & roll in a
way I like to hear it (or for better the way I like to hear it). The fact that
Guttercat was once a member of Baby Strange made them fancy instantly (I never said
I’m objective person, OK?). I’m quite sure I sent them an apology when our zine
died and informed them for the cancellation of our scheduled interview but
still (even if I’m excused I believe) no justice paid from my side. This is a CD-R
Guts had sent me which includes their two singles for review. I remember clearly I
was about to place them in my column as the best for that issue. And how’s not?
The triptych of Jacobites/Only Ones/Tyla (of Dogs D’Amour fame) rules every
song in here (the 'ballad' single actually has a front sleeve as you can see very lookalike with Tyla's solo works). Drunken electric ‘ballads’ with something more than visible presence of Johnny Thunders’ ghost and for sure an Ian Hunter during the Mott
days, touch. There are still copies if you‘re interested, so grab them. I wish I
could catch ‘em live. Great band!

Anyone's sitting on the legendary Birmingham’s glam punk outfit tape and wanna share it? Interested in any Hollywood Refugees material, actually... Thanks in advance!
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."
VARIOUS ARTISTS - "It's Happening Volumes 1-10" (LPs, Cheers Records - 2000-08)

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!

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.
