I've heard Vol 3, but it didn't stand up to the strength of Vol 4. This LP, on coral pink vinyl, contains 12 songs of punkish Mod music that sounds original and energetic, from UK's 77-81 period. There are several songs which are must-hear, with the best among them the awesome "You're all I wanted and a car" by Voice Of The Puppets.
Pete Rojas, who used to be MD at WHRB's Record Hospital 3 years ago, plays drums in this band, which follows in the Pussycat Trash type of sound, and features ex members of Skinned Teen..
pretty intense noisy male/female vocal punk featuring the drummer of The Fall, Carl Burns.
This band simply rules. They have the heart of Orange Juice, but a much sharper guitar and ramshackle sound. They forecasted the sound which became known as "C86" along with Big Flame, early Wedding Present, and This Poison!. This long overdue compilation is on the German label Marina, who issued Adventures in Stereo's records.
Word is that this amazing compilation is not going to get a European release, so this high priced import is the only way to hear these Beach Boy songs covered by very good bands like Adventures in Stereo, Melt Banana, Olivia Tremor Control, Thurston Moore, John McEntire, David Grubbs, and a dozen others. Even Melt Banana is reverent towards the Beach Boys, and no one is boring or cliche.
Very Low Frequency Receiver field recordings of audio frequency radio waves generated by the Aurora Borealis (the Alaskan 'Northern Lights') and the interaction of millions of bolts of lightning with the Earth's magnetic field.
4 song 12". Kreidler (I don't know if it exists anymore), was a German motorcyle popular in the seventies and early eighties. They had small and cheap motorcycles which were favourites of the 'proletarian' youth (as opposed to the scooter driving mod- and new romantic types).
