Jay Wiseman has been celebrating 1960s garage rock for decades now. The veteran frontman enjoyed cult fame in the San Diego bands The Trebles in the ’80s and The Hoods in the ’90s. Since relocating to Australia 10 years ago, he has played in a band called The King Hits and surely dabbled elsewhere. Now he’s popped up as the lead guitarist, primary songwriter, and often singer of the Melbourne quartet Thee Wylde Oscars. Dodgy name aside, it’s a rowdy continuation of the specific vintage of music Wiseman holds so dear. Rounded out by three young guns, all of whom have adopted the last name Wylde for the album credits, the band has a jumpy, hungry sound on this debut album.  There’s a trio of far-flung covers here, starting with the lighthearted threats of Johnny “Guitar” Watson’s ‘Big Bad Wolf’. The band later downplays the unhinged menace of ‘Nobody Can Tell Us’ by ’70s German punk outfit Pack, while retaining its anthemic defiance. The wild card, though, is a version of The Velvet Underground’s ‘White Light, White Heat’. Minus the druggy drone and chug of the original, it feels even older than it is, like something Chuck Berry or Little Richard might have cooked up!

Dirty Streets - "White Horse"

Alive Natural sound Records is releasing today "White Horse" the fourth studio album of Memphis-based power-trio Dirty Streets.

Formed in 2008, Justin Toland (guitar/vocals), Thomas Storz (bass), and Andrew Denham (drums) found themselves brought together by a shared love of classic acts like MC5, James Brown, Humble Pie, and James Gang. 

After years of playing shows, the band released two independent albums followed by their record label debut, Blades of grass on Alive natural sound records in 2013.

Following the release of this well-received  album, the band now delivers 11 new red-raw tracks of heavy boogie and psych-rock recorded at Ardent studio, with engineer Matt Qualls.

This album is definitely more fluid and natural,” Toland explained. “We made a big deal out of just feeling out the songs rather than getting them technically perfect. Percussion was definitely a compass as far as groove on this one. If we couldn’t play the tambourine, or shaker with feeling then it wasn’t cutting it. It was actually Budos Band that was a huge influence as far as groove goes for the writing of this record.”

Dirty Streets’ White Horse is available on Limited Vinyl, CD and digital formats. The stunning psychedelic cover art was created by Joshua Marc Levy of Asheville Art Family.

Here Ain't The Sonics

Here Ain't The Sonics
In WAV - Scans are included

Cinderella - Nomads
The Hustler - Girl Trouble
The Witch - Mono Men
Love No Other Man - The Original Sins
Psycho - Screaming Trees
He's Waiting - Game for Vultures
Strychnine - Surf Trio
You've Got Your Head on Backwards - Thee Headcoats

High Time - Young Fresh Fellows
Dirty Old Man - Pippi Eats Cherries
Going Home - Fallouts
Maintaining My Cool - Marshmallow Overcoat
Boss Hoss - Kings of Rock
Have Love Will Travel - Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper

It’s also common knowledge that great tribute records are hard as hell to pull off. Nonetheless, Bellingham’s Estrus Records and Conrad Uno’s Seattle-based, Popllama Records put in a valiant effort with the 1989 Here Ain’t the Sonics LP. The Northwest garage rock scene was pretty small at the time, so the labels searched across the US and World (well, at least, England and Sweden) and picked out some of the heavyweights. Unfortunately, the record is only so-so. While we are sure that nobody involved expected to accomplish the impossible and one-up the Sonics, we do wish that some of the bands tore it up a bit more.


Boston based Rum Bar Records recently released 2 new great cds.

1) Kurt BAKER - Play It Cool

Kurt BAKER seems to be a real workaholic in the last couple of years. Besides his solo carrier he is playing, amongst others, with Brad Marino and Geoff Palmer in The New Trocaderos and has also a band in Spain, the aptly titled Bullet Proof Lovers.

"Play It Cool" is his third solo album and second release on Rum Bar Records and it arrives on the heels of last year's Brand New B-Sides compilation. 

Personally, as much as i liked his early recordings, "Got It Covered" and "Rockin' For A Living",  I was not too keen of his "Brand New Beat" record which I found to be overproduced and lacking great songs. 

"Play It Cool" on the other hand is a total different story. The man is back on the top of his game and he is delivering 12 perfect shots of power poppin' rock n' roll with hooks a plenty. If you need name dropping think The Yachts, Elvis Costello, Joe Jackson, The Jags (remember their 1979 hit "Back Of My Hand"?)  

The whole record has a more "live" feeling to it and perfectly captures the fun and energy of the Kurt Baker band on stage. I saw them in cafe Bacchus a couple of years ago, and believe me, they kicked major ass! Absolutely GREAT!!! A MUST BUY! 


2) Nato Coles and the Blue Diamond Band - Promises To Deliver (Rum Bar Edition)

Over the last four years, Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band have released one single, two split seven-inches, and the acclaimed 2013 full-length "Promises To Deliver". 

Rum Bar Records recently released an expanded CD reissue of Promises To Deliver - which supplements the album's nine songs with four seven-inch tracks, an unreleased number called "Pieces On The Ground", and a demo of "Julie (Hang Out A Little Longer)". 

With inspiration ranging from The Replacements or early Green Day to  great songwriters like Bruce Springsteen or Tom Petty here is a new slice of great and heartfelt american rock'n'roll.
You know when you listen to this record that the man and his pals are not faking it and that he truly believes every single word he spits out.

Tribute to Midnight Rambler (Sons of the Dolls)

It's exactly one year today since Patrick (Midnight Rambler) passed away. 

Patrick, myself and a couple of other guys, JPaul, Limburg, Remi and Billy W. shared a dropbox and we were always thrilled whenever Patrick put some new stuff in the box coz we knew we were in for a treat.

This is one of the things he put in the box. So take a minute to remember him while listening to this record.

THEE FOURGIVEN in Rich Coffee's own words: "the band was formed out of the ashes of the Unclaimed. I wanted to do more of my songs, which were still very 60's influenced, but had a more hi-energy, 60's MC5 tinge to it rather than a Count V influence! The band started with Ray Flores (bass/vocals) & Matt Roberts (drums,garbage can,screams), both also from the Unclaimed. This line-up played around for about a year, recorded a couple compilations tracks and did an album called IT AIN'T PRETTY DOWN HERE on Dionysus Records. Matt left the country for "a couple of weeks" and didn't return for several years, so we brought in Ray's skater buddy, Bela Horvath. With Bela, we toured Europe twice, once with the awesome Miracle Workers and once with the latest (and last!) version of the Unclaimed (last because singer Shelley quit the band a week into the tour!). We also put out more comp cuts, a 45 and 2 more LPs before adding Mojo Jones on second guitar for several months before breaking up in early 1989".

Special thanks to Limburg for this rocking contribution
