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!
this is one ive not been able to find too much info on.i know the bootleg was initially a double-vinyl issue but apart from that not much else.all i know that its another excellent quality live c.d from the mondo-de-muebles archives that finds the cramps playing a blistering set of their demented take on all things trash and psychobilly.trashabilly if you like.anyway play this very loud,listen,do a silly dance and most of all enjoy,and leave a comment.thanks!

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! http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?cbbdgk4qzfu
this album was recorded live in detroit on october 30th/31st 1968.to 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...... enjoy and leave a comment.thanks! http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=f7aa7bc938750597ab1eab3e9fa335ca188f6c07bc4ac668
