PENNYCOCKS
Fake Gold & Broken Teeth LP
Contra Records

Back in 1977 SLAUGHTER & THE DOGS frantically raised the question “Where Have All The Bootboys Gone”, thirty-nine years and many worry lines later they finally receive the proper answer to satisfy their elementary needs by the PENNYCOCKS from Barcelona. Here they are, Latin Lover Bootboys from Catalonia cracking up bubble gum automats for their dear concubines and skipping out on a tab instead of beating up their opponents with handmade Millwall Bricks, allover handsome fellas going out for a Marlon Brando memorial spin through town on their rusty mopeds with the gold dust sound of music from the Fifties to the Seventies ringing in their ears.

This time the ramrod race is starting and finishing with some high quality football chantery prasing the undeniable qualities of both the Queens Park Rangers and Leeds United. Sorry for the other lads and firms, still searching for a proper Macclesfield tune by the way. Apart from that I´ve included TASTY and SHORTY for you and your wife respectively husband to cuddle, kiss and pet to. Come on, everybody needs a bit of lovin´, even the scarfaced Bootboy Service Crew. Don´t worry though, with WELLINGTON, BRITANIA, BLACKFOOT SUE, SHARATON, BLACK FIRE and WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE there´s still plenty of tunes to clap your hands to and stamp through the ballroom. As well there´s a bigger part of what you might call Proto-Punk featured this time.
Up next, as bound to tradition, will be the follow up volume of the Power Pop and Punk series this time focussing on the latter part.
As well there´s a New Wave Compilation in the making, a Northern Ireland Punk & Powerpop one, another one about the french Punk, Powerpop & New Wave Scene and one with a special focus on Pubrock & Bartender Boogie.
That´s it ? Of course not, there´s plenty of great music to dedicate to.
You´d like to hear some early Hard Rock / NWOBHM ? Maybe some Mod stuff ?
Suggestions welcome at any time, just let me know and I´ll try to work something out !
Now head down below that damn line again and get infected with the Backstreet Fever…
