V/A
Backstreet Fever Vol. 5 – Yobbo Rocks & Flasher Grooves
Vibrator Buzz Compilation Series

Promised like three weeks ago it´s finally online now that I got my ass off the Erdnuss Flips ridden couch watching important Didi Hallervorden movies.
Is the last volume really like almost one year ago ? Man, time is running fast when you got this real life thing going, Volume Six should be avalibale in 2020 then, maybe earlier. Well, let´s stop the shit talking then. You wanna listen to music right ?
Well, go for it below the invisible “Read More” line, where you´ll find the tracklist and download links that will lead you to 7th heaven musical enlightment once again.
All in the name of flared trousers, lost teeth, broken noses, boogie with the bartender and long gone losers !
The download is split in two parts this time for maximum quality, so don´t forget to click both links in order to receive the full treatment. Feel free to share as well !

Review: DEVIOUS ONES – Djarum Summers 7″

a3155455704_10

DEVIOUS ONES
Djarum Summers 7″
No Front Teeth Records

Do your hear that clapping sound ? Do you smell the taste of blood ? Don´t worry, it´s not another AGNOSTIC FRONT record that I´m talking about, it´s just me spanking my own ass. Amado of the DEVIOUS ONES already got in touch with me many months and moons ago and though I´d already marked writing about them somewhere in the back of my unsorted mind I´ve always been unable to pull it off due to various circumstances and it fell through.
At least until now when Marco from NFT finally released this gem and sent it over forcing me to my long overdue contestation with the DEVIOUS ONES. Fortunately, as otherwise I would have regretted it.

Review: RADIOHEARTS – Daytime Man EP

RADIOHEARTS
Daytime Man EP
Wanda Records

The fifth round of the Long Beach “Hit after Hit” Popcorn Bag Wonders and once again the air is getting rarer for their opponents. Don´t ask me why I haven´t written about those blokes yet, maybe it´s because the almighty Lord Rutledge has already said everything great that is to say about them, maybe it´s just my general work flow modus of only posting reviews every two to four months but at least here it is, my five cent contribution to the musical industry.

Buzz Of The Month: THE GIFT – Running Around This Town LP

a1872619803_10

THE GIFT
Running Around This Town LP
Time For Action Records

Alright you Top Boys and Knuckle Girls, I really hope you didn´t set your TFA order yet after the triumphant cry for glory of the WEEKS yesterday because here´s another scorcher comin´ from the same label to whip out your wallet for.
In case you ever thought of Powerpop only being some lame kind of coitus backbeat or of Mod Revival only being fit for crumpled pedantic traditionalists blustering about the sewing patterns of their Button-Down Shirts while sipping on a cup of Earl Grey and nibbling on a piece of malt loaf, then you´ve finally found the definite antithesis to this proposition by means of THE GIFT from Nantes and their actual full-length.
Almost two years after the release of their Debut EP on Une Vie Pour Rien those guys, having emerged from the likes of PROTOKIDS, JANITORS, RUDES and HEADLINERS, are presenting  a record that simply has to be denominated as absolutely unrivalled in it´s sound and attitude, once again giving proof that the TFA commander-in-chief Micha repeatedly evinces the right intuition to find extraordinary bands for his label.

Review: REIZ – s/t LP

a0893294599_10

REIZ
s/t LP
Spastic Fantastic Records / Kink Records

It´s time for the Nudist Colony Bingo-Hop, the latest craze from the secret land of pubic hair where jelly roll grabbing is explicitly permitted and invigorating harmony is the rule of the game. You don´t have to be ashamed of your body mass index here !
If the dancing Heidis on the frontcover got high on orange blossom oil and rocked their collective labrium to CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL is beyond my knowledge though.
One way or the other, it´s the inner appearance that counts and the one of REIZ is the definite antithesis to kermess society, church visits and incestuous boy/girl (from the same ten inhabitants one-horse town) gender meetings at the washing bays of Germany´s gas stations.

Talking In The Canteen: CITY LIMITS

3

CITY LIMITS
Morse Code Messages Straight To Berlin

Dear esteemed Vibrator Buzz followers and international record junkies blessed with the refined Powerpop taste of gods !
Are you ready for the comeback of the year, for an auditory adventure shot of Sixties Pop Jetage on a fast lane fight ride with the LAMBRETTAS qualitatively reeving in right beside THE FANS, DISTRACTIONS and REALLY 3RDS with an Costello aim that is true ?
Then set your alarm clocks to the 13th of May to jump directly into a sweaty hot pot live experience with the Leeds Powerpop Legend CITY LIMITS celebrating the release of their ultimately recommended “To Hull And Back” digest LP on Queen Mum Records with an exclusive return to the boards that mean the world at the Wild At Heart in Berlin !
Best known for their teenage fever anthem “Morse Code Messages” from the EP of the same name havin´ seen birth on the Luggage Label in 1979 this is your exclusive chance to save the 500 Euro that this EP is fetching up on the collectors market and reinvest them for train or flight ticket to Berlin and still havin´ a whole lot of quid left to broaden your barfly horizon while shaking your booty to the real thing.
Accompanied by Switzerland´s one and only BUZZCOCKS nougate covered Chainsaw Poppers ESCALATOR HATERS bringin´ in their tasty OUTCASTS / RUDI / UNDERTONES nut mix recipes and Bank Holiday Mod-Snot Berlin residents THE NOT AMUSED with their rampant Modern World middle-finger response take on THE CROOKS, CHORDS, SEVENTEEN and obscure Bored Teengagers residents alike, this one´s sure to be a night to remember and tell your grandchilds to.
On the occasion of this sabbath day I took the chance to have a chat with CITY LIMITS man of the match Ted Waite telling me about the way from founding the band in Leeds 1973 to playing in Berlin 2017.

Review: GEE STRINGS – I´m So Gee LP

a1132239783_10

GEE STRINGS
I´m So Gee LP
Ghost Highway / KOTJ / El Beasto Recordings (Spain)
Adrenaline Fix Music (France)
Wanda Records (Germany)

Old love doesn´t rust and the GEE STRINGS have always been one of mine since they´ve fired their first Chinese Rocks into the drivelling 1977 junkie romance crowd from their then High Society International label bunker back in 1996.
Now they´re back with their first full-length since “A Bunch Of Bugs” ten years ago and totally hold up to their big beat “Rip Her To L.A.M.F. Shreds” promise given on the “I Will Get You” Single on No Front Teeth in 2015 and on their first taste of delightful doom in this decade dating back to 2013 when they spit out a Split with Scott “Deluxe” Drake & the World´s Strongest Men.
Counting on those canapes I´ve expected nothing else but Ready Steady Yobbo Snubs honoured with the Cross of the Blitzkrieg Bop Order on the golden strap of Pirate Love.

Review: R.A.S. – Pas Le Temps De Regretter 12″

R.A.S.
Pas Le Temps De Regretter 12″
Contra Records

France oh France, my dear fountain of earth´s eternal Oi! and Punk joys ! First of all you granted me the pleasure of a triumphant KOMINTERN SECT awakening with their “D´Une Meme Voix” MLP and now you´re making my cherry red heart shake and shivver with the return of R.A.S. joining the Contra Records family as well.
It´s as Jean-Jacques Rousseau said: “When life gives you anis, make Pastis out of it, get wasted, get rowdy and start a civil war with this backstreet nailbomb of record blastin´ through the speakers of your stereo !”.

RAZORCUT
Common Enemy LP
Contra Records

You´re stressed out because the plastic surgeon appointment for the aesthetic adjustment of your cheekbones has been postponed once again ?
You want to drastically reduce the latency time for your next dentist date because your nicotine yellowed teeth stumps and  beer coloured Bovver Boy tusks are in the urgent need of a surgical extirpation ?
Then this RAZORCUT follow-up to their “Rise Again” full-length debut from 2015 is the ultimately satisfactional solution you´ve searched for.
