Ruts DC - Animal Now

Another delicious re-post from the box labelled 'Repost these now please ' comes this album from Ruts DC.After the great vocalist Malcolm Owen's death from a heroin overdose in 1980, The Ruts added a "D.C." to their name, for "Da Capo" (meaning "back to the beginning) and recorded Animal Now in 1981. Adding sax man Gary Barnacle as a full time member and Paul Fox handling the vocals, Animal Now still features riveting songs and Foxy's amazing guitar work, but more jazz and reggae influences come to the fore. Dangerous Minds, Despondency and No Time To Kill are 3 of the standout songs here for me.This CD re-release of Animal Now contains 7 bonus tracks with demos and extended versions of various songs.so sit back,relax,play it loud,enjoy, then leave a comment.thanks!

good morning campers,time to rise and shine!for breakfast today we have this offering from mr.strummer and his merry men recorded live at londons town and country club way back last century in 1989.its got a good mix of clash songs and l.r.w songs too.
i actually could have gone to see this as i'd come over to london on the ferry from ireland to see the ramones at the t+c club,seeing posters for this and thinking i could go and see them as well but er.....forgetting probably because of way too much consumption of cider.but anyway its a great gig and brings back memories of a great few days in london for me.actually if anybody has the ramones at the T+C on the 9th October '89 please,please get in touch,that would be super fantastic.anyway listen to this c.d to start your day(if you are in the same time zone as me!)enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Tigers - Savage Music

i was browsing in a local charity shop recently and saw a 7" single called 'ska trekkin' by a band called the tigers.at this point i had never heard of the band but i bought the single anyway(despite not having a deck to play it on) because im an idiot and thought it may have been a ska version of the star trek theme!which of course it isnt.anyway after speaking to a few mates one of them sent me this link for what appears to have been their only album which i was told was only ever released in the usa.anyway what we have is a collection of nice ska-pop which im really enjoying listening to on this fine sunny day here in london.anyway give this a listen,enjoy some old school british ska circa 1979,and hopefully leave a comment.thanks!

The Clash - Sound of The Sinners

the first of a few promised new clash posts.these come from their scandinavian tour in 1981.this one is from gothenburg from may 15th. http://www.blackmarketclash.com/ had this to say "The Clash returned to the Scandinavium, Gothenburg where a year earlier they had produced an extraordinary performance, one of the best of 1980. Tonight’s does not quite reach those heights but is very enjoyable nevertheless, one of the best from this 1981 European tour. As with the 1980 concert a very good audience recording circulates of the whole of this concert too."
i think its a very good listen and its 26 tracks of clashy goodness.so hopefully you'll listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Jam - Down in the Tokyo Subway '81

this is an audience recording of the full show from the jam in tokyo sometime in 1981.i believe there is a better quality fm boot around but its not the full show.anyway its a good quality audience boot from the always brilliant 'jam'.its strange but listening to this you can almost feel the bands frustration at the very polite clapping at the end of each song from the tokyo audience.or maybe thats just me.but i think for fans of the band you've got to have this for your collections.so listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Meteors - Peel Sessions

another post that does exactly what it says on the tin.a collection of peel sessions recorded between '83 and '85.12 songs in all for you to dance wildly around the house to.so play loud,close the curtains so the neighbours cant see your attempts at 'dancing',enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

Angelic Upstarts - Peel Sessions E.P

another lovely peel session for you all to enjoy today from south shields finest ,the angelic upstarts.formed originally in 1977 the band are still going strong and are still a great live act.10 tracks for you here to pogo to including 2,000,000 voices and last night another soldier.i dont know the dates each track was recorded but i do know they did their sessions between 1978 - 1980.but that wont detract from your enjoyment of some proper old school punk rock.so play this loud,pogo like its 1977 again,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
ok thats weird.some of you may have had trouble with this link.i checked it now and there had been a lot of downloads on it but it was being a pain and not downloading so ive re-upped it and it seems ok now.dont know what happened there but er.......its probably technical and im crap at that sort of thing.so hopefully all is well!

continuing the psychobilly theme we have this offering from the guana batz originally released in 1985 where it reached no.1 in the independent charts.this album brilliantly captures the psychobilly legends that were the guana batz in their prime.the standout track for me here is of course 'king rat'.anyway please listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Meteors - In Heaven

The Guana Batz - Peel Sessions

good morning listeners.the first post today is the peel sessions recorded by 'the guana batz' one of the original psychobilly bands who formed in 1982.the band are still together and still touring occasionally so if you see a gig advertised go and see them.this is a great cd and features a great version of 'brand new cadillac' and 'zombie walk'.if this cd doesnt get you doing the famous psychobilly 'chicken' dance then there may be no hope for you!so i advise you to play this loud,try to dance,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Cherry Bombz - House of Ecstasy

i picked this up recently in the record and tape exchange shop in greenwich.(if your in london go there and check their bargain basement)i hadnt heard of the band before but when i saw that members include terry chimes(ex-clash) and dave tregunna (sham 69) i had to get it.it also features ex members of hanoi rocks and er...... toto coelo.its a combination of live tracks and studio cuts etc.its got a glam kind of sound but thats probably the 'hanoi' influence shining through.they actually also remind me of the band from the film waynes world.listen to the song 'aint what you do' and youll see what i mean!so hopefulyy you'll listen and enjoy it,like it and then leave a comment on it.thanks!

The Alarm - Roslyn NY 83

this post was requested by hammer.its an alarm show from a club in new york in 1983.its 14 tracks long with very good sound all the way through.i believe it may be an fm broadcast so that may explain the quality.anyway this band were originally a punk band called 'the toilets' that formed in wales in 1977.about a year later they became a mod band and went by the name 'seventeen' and released a single in 79 called 'dont let go'.so if anyone finds this please let me know.anyway i hope you like the show.so listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!

The Sham Pistols - Live

tonights post is a bit of a ' what if?'.it is the recording of the only and only time the sham pistols played live together, if somewhat briefly.here is what wikipedia had to say about it.
"The Sham Pistols were a group that never really existed. After the break up of The Sex Pistols, guitarist Steve Jones and drummer Paul Cook were looking to form a new band. Various names were mentioned as new bandmates including Bob Geldof, but it was vocalist Jimmy Pursey and bass player Dave Treganna from fellow punk band Sham 69 who were recruited.
At what was intended to be Sham's final concert at the Glasgow Apollo Theatre on June 29, 1979 Jones and Cook had joined Sham onstage for the encore of "Pretty Vacant", "White Riot", "If the Kids are United" and "What Have We Got"? This was to be the start of the new band. Time was spent in the studio where two songs were recorded - "Some Play Dirty" and "Natural Born Killer" (which was later reworked as The Professionals' "Kick Down the Doors"). However problems around deciding the name of the new group (Pursey favoured using 'The Sham Pistols'), and arguments within the band meant that it was not to be. On 19 August Jones and Cook walked out of a recording session,with Jones saying "It's worse than working with Rotten". The studio recordings have never seen the light of day, but the encore at the Glasgow Apollo was released on Sham's Last Stand and Sham 69 Live in Glasgow 1979. The latter miscredits the Sham song "George Davis is Innocent (also known as "The Cockney Kids are Innocent" and "Everybody's Innocent") as the Sex Pistols' "No One is Innocent".
so there you have it kids.if only?id like to hear those studio tracks so if anyones got them please get in touch.now its time again to listen,enjoy and then leave a comment.thanks!
