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!

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.
