REPOST Request: Here is all the SSD I could find with only the best bitrates. I also had posted long ago a couple of live shows by them I had got from a collector which I can post later if needed. Thanks to Dr. Drunk or Wildevilman for their recent post of Power whatever that is I don't know.

Thanks to the defunct Isksp blog for this! Was located next to the files above so I thought I would post. Here is insert about it: This live set was recorded at Kid Airac Hall on 3/27/1979, and the copy I have is a one-sided bootleg on 33 rpm. The MRR reviews included (as a transparent insert!) indicate that it was originally a 45 rpm two-sider. Except for the lo-lo-fi recording, this does not really bare resemblance to later Japanese hardcore like GAUZE or S.O.B. (although I have not heard THE STALIN, so maybe them?), and instead comes across as super-charged garage rock a la THE MIDDLE CLASS ("Out of Vogue" or "Love Is Just a Tool," especially) or later THE GERMS. The first half of the record probably will remind one of HÜSKER DÜ's Land Speed Record, while the second half opens with an incredibly catchy mid-tempo song that may or may not get fast, depending on when you think that particular song ends. They also have a song that sounds like 60's surf anthems like "Tequila" or "Wipe Out," if you can believe that. And, yes, there is an absolutely astounding cover of THE RAMONES "Blitzkrieg Bop" as an encore. Someone said it is faster than the SOB version, but I don't know about that. Anyways, this band was as fast or faster than any other band in the US or Britain at the time, and probably would have blown the minds of critics who were saying THE CLASH were "the only band that mattered" that very year. Unfortunately one cannot say this record was too influential, because it was released six years after the fact, but as a document of our punk heritage, and a fucking good time, it's hard to beat.

REPOST Request: Surf rock from Durbain, South Africa. This is pretty interesting and a step back in time. The lyrics are not anything even close to being politically correct, but never uses overly offensive language. At time's I'm kind of a taken back at some of the lyrics, which I hope where meant as a joke of some kind.
On to the actual platter itself, there is a Dick Dale feel to this seven inch but if it is surf rock it pretty much has to in my opinion. "Back in the R.S.A." is a pretty rocking tune the singer on this song, I am not sure which one because it looks like three of them share the vocals sounds like Velvy the lead singer of The Diesel Queens, the likeness is uncanny. "Everything's Groovy in Sun City" is a Beach Boys Parody.
This was released in 1988 on Mykel Board's Seidboard World Enterprises label.
Download if you dare and if you do download it no bitching about it, you've been warned about the content.

Band also featured the great Gary Moore (R.I.P.) on guitar as you will recognize the opening track that he featured on his solo LP's, Tommy Eyre who appeared on records from Joe Cocker, Michael Schenker, Gerry Rafferty, ZZebra, Gary Moore, B.B. King, John Mayal, Tracy Chapman and Wham, and then also Ted McKenna who was in Tear Gas, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band, Rory Gallagher, Ian Gillan all of who have been posted here. Greg Lake is the fine voice of the first couple King Crimson albums.

These guys never made it big outside their San Jose scene but that's O.K. as that is what makes them so special. First thing I noticed in my initial listen was that JFA's instrumental tune 'Unknown' is no longer unknown as it sounds like 'Dark Side of the Mushroom'. But this is just the start of the familiarity with tunes like 'Medication', 'Milk Cow Blues', 'I'm Not Like Everybody Else' or 'Sweet Young Thing' so greatly influencing the neo-paisley bands of the 80s. I know you will enjoy! P.S. My disk had disc rot for the 2nd LP title track and 5th song after that so they were blank. I have downloaded from another blog and fixed the file for link 2 below.

Damn this newer punk stuff makes me want to drop all the old stuff and just follow these bands!! Killer tunes from the late nineties I used to groove on including: Mustard Plug, Nobodys, The Queers, Fifteen, Scared Of Chaka, FYP, The Weakerthans, Dillinger Four, Against All Authority, Falling Sickness, Algebra One, Funeral Oration, Kid Dynamite, Heckle, Damnation and the Rabies.
Wow, this is too cool. Disco Duck sung in another language? Very obscure rarities here with some gems for sure. Features: Howard Carpendale, Juliane Werding, D.J. Scott, Johnny Wakelin, Mel Jersey, Silver Convention, Wolfgang, Penny McLean, Boney M. (from K-tel Comp.), Roland Kaiser, Freddy Breck, Ricky King, Gilla (killer tune!), Frank Zander and Tony Marshall.
Thanks to the commentor who requested this as I found these in a new record store a few weeks later. He also asked for Suzanne Felini so I bought on discogs and that platter is on the way!
