ODDBALLS‘ BAND „fucked up right“ (weird science)
10“ 6,- €
Brandnew 10 songs from this Bonn raunch trio!!! This damn record heat-welds
together an ungodly melting pot of '50s r&b, punkrock, blues, and
garage punk in a way rarely ever touched, never mind surpassed!! The
Oddballs band play with savagery and soul that are missing from most
white blues musicians who've taken a stab at the genre. A mean combination
of guttural blues and stomping rock'n'roll. Dirty Slim‘s voice
is equal parts heartache and hellfire. He hollers with all the sass
and sorrow of a drunk at last call, and his guitar playing is just as
rambunctious -- going from fleet, foot-stompin' blues workouts to reverb-drenched
garage-rock overdrive in a heartbeat. With backing from Blind Kid Longer,
who pounds out sloshed, ramshackle rhythms on a broken drumkit, it all
amounts to lots of weathered, world-weary thrills. An essential purchase
for any discerning trash rock hound.
ODDBALLS BANDS „49 songs.....“ 10” 3,- €
ODDBALLS‘ BAND „shit explosion“ (scenepolice 010
/ weird science) CD 5,- €
This collection of rare blues recordings contains 22 songs of the Oddballs
band! Basicly this is a best of-collection of all their sold out records
most of which were available on vinyl only and a buncha unreleased songs,
which have been recorded exclusively for this release! About as authentic
sounding as the blues can get without being born black in 1825. A raw
and exciting blues artifact circa 1883 (-88) featuring Dirty Slim playing
lead guitar on all tracks while Champion Mc Beth (later replaced by
Mr T-Bird) and Steamboat deliver the punkin‘ rhythm and some very
inspired bass. With extensive linar notes again by Mr T-Bird and the
legend of Hobo Johnson being revealed (sorta)! A supreme blues album
done of course in the time honored Hobo Johnson style.
ODDBALLS BAND “shady flavour” 7“ 1,- €
OHM (release the bats records) 7“ 2,- €
release the bats records are proud to present the debut 7“ from
the new swedish band ohm! an instrumental four-piece (two members from
the jam session + two other kids), self described as 'timeless electronica'.
think heavy progressive rock from the 60´s intersecting with more
modern electronica. the result is truly amazing. 3 dark songs filled
with loudness and passion. fantasy-electro for the new century! a new
band that features some kids from THE JAM SESSION, they are fuuucking
amazing. progressive and heavy as hell, instrumental stuff that is like
a dark and disgusting mix of black sabbath and fucking deep purple,
but mainly focused on keyboards! goblin comes to mind (some parts also
reminds me alot of early mortiis, no shit). suggestive electronica.
groovy (i hate that word but you know what i mean) and loud. OHM = simply
OIL „electric tongue“ (coalition records) 10“ / CD
5,- € / 5,- €
The Netherlands' OIL ups the ante after their critically acclaimed Definition
Delta LP, with five new blasts of rock swagger and punk sensibilities.
With an ever evolving sound, OIL smashes all expectations and takes
it to the street where they not only prove themselves to be veterans
of the European hardcore scene, but a band able to spar with the best
pure rock and roll bands on the planet. With their newest EP, Electric
Tongue, OIL traces shadows of their trademark DC-influenced hardcore
sound and mixes in elements of DRIVE LIKE JEHU, HOT SNAKES, and the
attitude of RYE COALITION to bring a previously unheard texture and
sass to their music. This EP demonstrates that the band is able to reinvent
themselves which each subsequent release. Electric Tongue is a small
taste of big things yet to come. Recommended if you like: RYE COALITION,
DRIVE LIKE JEHU.
OLIVER TWIST, THE "NEW TRICKS & TRAPS" (XM-062) LP 6,5
okay, due to our shitty financial situation we should not release another
record right now - but when we did get sent these recordings and were
asked to release it, we just could NOT resist! these 8 new tracks are
by far surpassing anything these guys had ever recorded! musically there
are similarities to this other german band ROBOCOP KRAUS, but the OLIVER
TWIST's go one or more steps further here... sounding like a fresh &
enthusiastic equivalent to the LES SAVY FAV or LIFTER PULLER and yes,
their non-predictable approach to music even reminds me of the BIG BOYS
(if i dare say so?) - and so we hope this will turn into a BIG SELLER
and solve all our problems...
ONE AM RADIO, THE "the hum of the electric air!" (ehp) LP
beautiful, melancholy lyrics and melodies characteristic of their previous
records is still dominant on this release, but the band takes on new
territory as well, for the first time using breakbeats, samples, and
keyboards. the twelve tracks, though somewhat ecletic, all have a dark,
wistful dreaminess, born from the night time drone of insects, power
lines, and lightning storms, and contain the quiet, pastoral beauty
of a dusk in july.
ONE MAN AND HIS DROID “Où est le magnétophone?”
CD (Defiance) 4,- €
A symbiosis of perfectly arranged guitar music and wonderful, atmospheric
electronic-arrangements. With every listen, this record will grow on
you, if you like this kinda music...if you don’t you’ll
throw it out the window, like i did! One man and his droid continues
to add influences from ELLIOTT, RADIOHEAD, NOTWIST or AIR.
ON THE MIGHT OF PRINCES "Where You Are and Where You Want To Be"
long island chaotic and screamy emo foursome. totally dynamic and diverse
hardcore belted out with gutwrenching enthusiasm and emotion. everyone
who knows me knows i hate the emo, but this really is great. the vinyl
version was manufactured using direct to metal mastering (dmm), so it
sounds totally fucking mint. their new record will be out on revelation
records in the winter.
