Dance Craze - soundtrack

it seems the blog world is going 2-tone crazy at the moment so here i am with my contribution.its the soundtrack to the film of the same name and its fantastic.each song is a classic ,filled with an energy that makes it impossible not to dance to.this is a great rip with all the songs included,none of this no madness here!it was done by someone i know who prefers to remain nameless and hes included nice scans of the covers from the record,cassette and vhs versions.there is also a scan of the front of the dance craze magazine that i got some where else.incidentally if anyone could point me somewhere i could see the whole magazine that would be great.right over to you guys again.put this on,listen,dance around your living room,enjoy and leave a comment.thanks!

The Barracudas - Complete EMI recordings

a great compilation from a sadly under-rated band,formed in late '78 and continuing until 1981.there was another line up that continued after this but they aren't on this compilation.influenced by everyone from the ramones,the stooges to the beach boys this cd deserves to be in everyones collection.some nice sleeve notes with the c.d that i will post later.listen,enjoy and leave a comment.thanks!

MC5 - Kick out the jams

this album was recorded live in detroit on october 30th/31st quote from the sleeve notes "we were punk,before punk.we were new wave,before new wave.we were metal,before metal."if you haven't heard this album before then do yourself a favour and give it a listen.turn the volume all the way to 11 and prepare yourselves for pure sonic fury......
