Segall’s latest project…raw hard garage stomp…fuzzy and scuzzy but focused as a shotgun jackhammer going to work on some hot black asphalt while a 38 year old hooker with handgun to temple goes to work on a forty year old mattress grinds out a two minute living to the sound of junkyard dog barking in the background.
Back From the Pink Room
Apparently raised on essential punk, from the cream of the crop of 80s HC to the beginnings in Detroit ’69, NYC ’75, London ’77…these Florida punks also blaze the way for the better side of what was coming with this debut long player from ’88. Punk ROCK!
Solid holiday offering from the man from Philly, the man on the Hammond, all instrumental drenched in organ and guitar.
“Silent Night,” “Jingle Bells,” “Christmas Song,” “White Christmas,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “I Saw Mommy…” came from the 1954 10″ All-Time Christmas Favorites (the first R&B Christmas album?), the other six recorded this 1958 set.
