This collection of live and studio rarities from the late '60s and early '70s--when powerhouse singer Roy Loney was the group's central figure--shows that at their best, the Flamin' Groovies could shred every band in their general stylistic vicinity. This album burns through good-rockin' covers of such proto-power-pop classics as "I Can't Explain," "Shakin' All Over" and, of course, "Louie Louie." One particularly way-cool find, the radio promo for the Groovies' self-released SUPERSNAZZ album, is also included. Essential for all Groovies fans.

The Montecristos - Born To Rock 'n' Roll

The Montecristos is a fabulous London based rock'n'roll outfit including  Neal X - Guitar and Vocals, Emma Goss - Double Bass, Gemma B - Trumpet, Sophie Freeman - Saxophone, Hugh Wilkinson - Drums

In an age when overnight internet sensations are an everyday occurrence, it’s hard to find a band that’s grown organically, the old fashioned way, by word of mouth and touring, while winning kids over one show at a time. 

The band positively explodes on the opening instrumental track, “Atlantic Surf”. It’s a loud, urgent blast of guitars and horns clocking in at just over a minute and 51 seconds, setting the tone for the rest of the album. 

And the rest of the album is a fantastic rollercoaster ride through the finest rock'n'roll on this side of  Chris Spedding ("Born To Rock 'n' Roll", "Dirty") or Sylvain Sylvain.("Good lovin'")

The real treat on this record is a fabulous rendition of "Brand new Cadillac"  with plenty of horns and featuring Marc Almond (of all people) impersonating Vince Taylor like no one else before.

Go and purchase The Montecristos' debut full length album, released on EASY ACTION RECORDS you won't regret it. An absolute must buy!

While you're at it, make sure to check the "coming soon" section: EASY ACTION has some great stuff coming in the following weeks or months (FUZZTONES Box set, HYDROMATICS with bonus tracks, .....)

13. TV Set 2:09
14. First Time 3:36

Wyoming doesn’t exactly conjure images of very much except snow, mountains, and vast expanses of wilderness. For just over a decade, however, Teenage Bottlerocket has worked hard to change that, putting out five full-lengths over that period and touring around the world with a range of disparate bands. Bottlerocket’s take on pop-punk has become instantly recognizable, and fans that have followed the band over this time have been rarely disappointed with their recorded output.

Special thanks to Joey R.A. Mone for this rocking contribution.

The return of the legendary Sonics with their first studio album of new material since 1967! Formed in Tacoma Washington in 1960, they are a major influence on garage, punk and rock music worldwide. "This Is The Sonics" reunites original members Jerry Roslie, Larry Parypa and Rob Lind, backed by the powerhouse rhythm section of Freddie Dennis (The Kingsmen, The Liverpool Five) and Dusty Watson (Dick Dale, Agent Orange). Broken up in 1967, The Sonics legacy remained frozen in time with classics like "Psycho," "Strychnine," and "Have Love, Will Travel", awaiting discovery and directly inspiring generations of garage bands the world over. "This Is The Sonics" picks up where they left off. Recorded in "Earth Shaking Mono" by producer Jim Diamond, known for his work with the White Stripes, and The Dirtbombs.

The New Christs were formed by ex Radio Birdman singer Rob Younger. He had been offered the support spot on Iggy Pop’s Australian tour of 1984 and needed a band fast. He found interest from members of groups such as Celibate Rifles, Radio Birdman, Lime Spiders and Hoodoo Gurus. The tour proved a wild success and the band stayed together, and recorded two singles for Citadel Records: the psychotic "Like A Curse" and the angrier-than-thou "Born Out Of Time".

After a hiatus of 18 years, Les VICE BARONS finally did some new recordings early 2015. The 4 tracks were recorded at Homedrumming studio by Jeremy Trossat who also took care of the mixing and mastering. And boy, what a bombastic sound he managed to create.

The rendition of "The Model" is the best ever heard since KRAFTWERK penned the original song in 1978.

The band is still trying to seal a record deal for the E.P. but in the meantime, the new tracks are already available digitally
