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.

Mullets & Snot Mops – A Collection Of Toilet Rockers & Testicle Bruisers
Vibrator Buzz Compilation Series

You didn´t ask for it, so here it is, a massive collection of heavy rockin´ crunchers, hard poppin´ pissers and motor-oil glammy gunk.
With thirty songs reporting for noise duty this is the most massice collection I´ve worked out so far and the first one delving onto the scary shores of NWOBHM. Don´t be afraid though, guitar solos and ecstatically howling vocal hounds on acid aren´t my six-pack of personal choices as well, so I´ve focussed on the early days of NWOBHM when the music still had no genre boundaries, no rules and regulations and was wanking around somewhere inbetween the poles of Hard Rock, Punk and Powerpop resulting in an output that I´d describe as Toilet Rock in the best sense possible.
Raucous Moped Rockers equipped with ammunition belts and testicle bruising skintight denims whooped by cheap alcohol, pills and teenage hate, post-punkish lo-fidelity garage slop farts on amateur speed with a glammy undertone and oily haired Powerpoppers with an instant dependence potential playing darts in stinky pubs and goosing older women´s ass.
All the ingredients you need for a noisy night-out trip back in time are, as usual, listed and available for downfiling pleasure below…See you next week when it´s time for another part of the BACKSTREET FEVER Glam Series and a batch of Record Reviews !

Buzz Of The Month: PENNYCOCKS – Fake Gold & Broken Teeth LP

pennycocks_fakegold_cover

pennycocks_fakegold_back

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.

Backstreet Fever Vol. 4 – Jukebox Junkies & Heartbreakers
Vibrator Buzz Compilation Series

The waiting has come to an end, the crying is over, the kleenex can be put back into the kitchen cupboard as here is the next volume of your beloved Backstreet Fever Compilation Series, this time ramped up to a total of 25 tracks as a reparation for your painful waiting period that only took a “little bit” longer than the promised week it should have.
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…

Review: NERVE BUTTON – s/t LP

a1744792863_10

NERVE BUTTON
s/t LP
Wanda Records

Filthy jokes rolled up in a greasy bacon rind of magnificent FORGOTTEN REBELS bad taste and ambiguous TEENAGE HEAD sidenotes about genitals served with Junkshop handclaps from the local pawnbroker and a droned out copy of the REAL KIDS Debut LP at side.
If those guys are talking about a trip to the rig there´s no job related training event to be planned but an alcoholically indicated intoxication instead leading to an impressive sexual accident with the not necessarily attractive neighborhood milf.

Backstreet Fever Vol. 1 – Bovver Boogie, Terrace Glam & Teenage Glitter
Vibrator Buzz Compilation Series

In reminiscence of the first Vibrator Buzz Blog installment back then in 1867, I decided to re-establish an always much loved tradition from that grandpa noise pollution network of mine and supply you with all volumes of my selfmade compilation series featuring only the best of Glam, Punk and Powerpop.
Starting off with the first volume of the Backstreet Fever series you´ll be properly equipped for the next Wham Bam Thank You Glam dance off at your favourite local boozing station, just in time to impress those neat and nasty plateau boot girl gang or the grim looking boover boys as well.
So get down beneath that “Read More” line and get all the tracklist information you need to start the Boogie like a maniac.
Up next in the series will be the first volume of “Entertainment For The Mentally Disabled” with sure shot powerpoppin´ crackers like the NORMALS, CITY LIMITS, LAST STAND, THE METHOD, CLIVE CULBERTSON and more…Stay Tuned !

The Raunch & Riot Of The CRAZY SQUEEZE: A Euro Tour Report by Sir Frankie Delmane

16

Fanzines, bloody hell ! It´s almost nine months ago now that I´ve tried multiple times at and at various resources to find a warm and cozy paper issue place for this CRAZY SQUEEZE tour report by Sir Frankie Delmane to creep in and be taken care of just to splendidly run aground.
Either I got offered the page space of a shopping list (if you don´t buy more than a piece of cheese and just a little salami) or I´ve been informed about guest writers not being asked for, sometimes I even got no answer at all or things just didn´t get sorted out the right way.
Nevertheless I still think that this tour report should be seen and read as it is perfectly echoing the passion and enthusiasm of the CRAZY SQUEEZE on stage. That “Glorious Pub Junk Glam’n’Roll providing you a rare and special kind of bliss only comparable to being laid to rest in the cuddly womb of a wet five dollar whore.” is really dripping out of every single letter noted down here.
As the CRAZY SQUEEZE have just released their “To The Lonely Ones / Red Rosie” 7inch on Pure Punk and will be coming back to Europe this autumn, I thought that this report may be a fine taster for all the undecided to be discipulized into unrestrained outta control CRAZY SQUEEZE junkies with, even despite such dumb and childish things like actuality.
Last but not least a million thanks to Frankie for his work writing this !

crazy squeeze 3
The Crazy Squeeze- the proverbially postmodern pub rock masterpiece, took our show on the road this past November, bringing our brand of direct hit hooks- a sonic hybrid of our musical heroes from The Boys UK, Little Bob Story, Heartbreakers, Eddie & The Hot Rods, Stooges, Chuck Berry and Little Richard- merged with subtle hints of R&B, Soul, hillbilly music, and some shots of noise for anarchistic fullness- to towns across Europe, in an effort to entertain and galvanize those interested in having a momentary fling with catharsis, transcendence, and the overall need to get drunk, stupid, and sloppy. Three and a half weeks of nightly debauchery, debasement, and self-destruction seemed to lead the way, as we crawled and scrapped through language barriers, dietary challenges, traffic transgressions, and the general quest for some sort of avoidance of our everyday lives back home in Angry America. We were well-oiled, ready, packed and pleased to be going places few of us have been, some of us have seen many times, yet all would count as new adventures for a lifetime.
