PORK DUKES- PINK PORK LP vinyl-rip 1978

The band was originally composed of twin brothers and former Gnidrolog members Colin Goldring (vocals / guitar) and Stewart Goldring (guitar / vocals) using the pseudonyms Vilos and Horrendus Styles, respectively – alongside Scabs (bass guitar), Germun LePig (drums) (later replaced by Bonk aka. Rocky Rhythm) and Mack E. Valley (keyboards. He was later replaced by Guardian Angel prior partway through the recording sessions for the second album.

Combining a Buzzcocks-style pop punk sound with bawdy subject matter, gross-out toilet humour and profanity in their songs, the band released their debut single "Bend and Flush" b/w "Throbbing Gristle" in 1977 on Wood Records, a subsidiary of Caroline Records UK created specifically for the band.

Due to the lyrical content of their recordings, the band struggled for airplay, though it was known that BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel was a fan.

The true identities of the Pork Dukes were originally a closely-guarded secret, the band playing in pig masks during live performances. Various rumours circulated amongst fans and in the music press that the band was actually Led Zeppelin, Steeleye Span, The Rezillos, Fairport Convention or Tenpole Tudor in disguise. It was also suggested that either Keith Moon or Dudley Moore may have been lead singer.

The controversy surrounding the band and backlash from feminist groups led to them being unable to find a management company to represent them or perform at large venues (gigs were frequently played unannounced at small community centres to avoid protesters). Towards the end the band were reduced to playing gigs at mental institutions (Vilos Styles was training to become a psychiatric nurse at this point) to entertain the patients.

Following the release of the studio Pink Pork and three singles on Wood Records, the band broke up in 1979, with the album Pig Out of Hell being released posthumously by Wood in either between 1979-1981. Bonk (aka. Rocky Rhythm) later played for The Revillos, Tenpole Tudor and The Damned frontman Dave Vanian's Phantom Chords.

In 2001 the Pork Dukes reformed. Returning to the band on drums was Bonk (aka. Rocky Rhythm) and new member Vince Santini (ex-The Revillos) on bass guitar / vocals, who replaced Scabs. They continue to record and tour.

The Wylde Mammoths - Help That Girl 7" EP

Wylde Mammoths were founded in Stockholm, Sweden in the mid-80's and were part of the thriving garage rock scene of the day which included Stomachmouths, High Speed V, Crimson Shadows and The Creeps. In 1986 they were signed to the American label Crypt Records, being one of the first new bands Crypt released, before that they mostly made 60's garage compilations like the Back from the grave-series. Being very infuenced by the music of the 60's themselves, The Wylde Mammoths recorded their first album in singer Peter Maniette's basement only using an old 2-track Beocord tape recorder. Tours of the US and Europe and more records followed before the band split up in the early 90's.

Sylvain Sylvain - Sylvain Sylvain (1980) LP rip

It is often forgotten that Syl Sylvain co-wrote many of the New York Dolls' best songs, but he did. While this album will forever be compared to the classic first solo albums by Syl's fellow ex-Dolls, David Johansen and Johnny Thunders, this record is good enough to be judged on its own terms. The material here is strong, and it is more of a lighthearted '50s rock & roll affair than might have been expected. Two of the songs, "Teenage News" and "14th Street Beat," date back to the final days of the NY Dolls. These versions are fantastic and inevitably lead to singalongs. However, the real standout is "What's That Got to Do With Rock 'n' Roll?." It's an undeniable song, so much so that mainstream radio picked up on it at the time. The playing is really loose in a good way. Not sloppy by any means, but played, sung, and produced with an appreciation for what made rock & roll fun in the first place. (
