VV.AA - Marty Thau Presents 2x5

NY punk compilation produced by Blondie's Jimmy Destri and featuring the Fleshtones, Revelons, Bloodless Pharaohs (Brian Setzer's pre-Stray Cats band), Comateens and Student Teachers.
At a time when disco reigned supreme the five innovative young New York bands featured on this unique compilation searched for an alternative. Borrowing liberally from the great bands of rock ‘n’ roll, they created 2x5’s music with an infectious spirit and energy in the tradition of the original nuggets bands like The Standells, Love and Chocolate Watch Band.
A gem!!!

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.
