I've hit the point of wondering why I'm doing this.

Shareing the love of greeeeaaat music, worked for a while.

But this bloggin lark sometimes feels like you are p#ssing into the wilderness. It's shockin when you hear of the amount of posts VS the amount of downloads

So I reckon it's time to shut up shop and move on.

Thanks to everyone who's taken the time and effort to comment. I hope some of you have found something new and keep on sharing, you know it makes sense

Take it easy, enjoy life and checkout the comments over the next few days for the last clearout

The Meteors - Wreckin Crew

I fkn loved the Meteors and it all began with their first single, Meteor Madness then a bit later the first album In heaven (earlier post) the out came this, their best known album, which came out around 83.

I was unusual back then, until the music exploded all over the scooter scene.

It is shit hot Psychobilly, harder and more brutal than previous releases. They wer fkn great live back then, it was mental down the front and I looooooovvved it. Happy days.

This sets out how Psychobilly should be, all else copied.

Various Artists - Stompin at the Klub Foot

I was a regular back in the deep "n" distant

Summer on the rallies, winter in the klub foot, happpyyyyy daze. It weren't a good night unless you got your and other peoples blood on your clothes, it was rough up the front, but there was a code.

Our lot didn't turn up for the recording nights cos we reckoned it would be full of "plastics". Kinda wish I had now.

This album has a proper mixture of live garage, psychobilly, neo rockabilly etc back from the golden days. It puts a proper fkn smile on my face every time I dig it out Enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyy.

Listing of the tracks are placed in the comments.

Etta James - Sings Funk

Etta James is a fkn amazing vocalist. I first came across her when I heard her 50's trax on the Gaz Rockin' Blues comp (earlier post) and her vocals just stoood out big time and I was hooked

She carried on singing never reaching the fame her soooperb vocals deserved. Perhaps her love of a parttttttyyyyy then unfortunately the needle denied her the reputation she sooooo deserved.

There is much to choose from, but right noiw I just love this album of soul "n" funk. Fkn genuis and what a fkn voice, seriously what a fkn voice. GET ON THIS and ENJOOOYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

Urban British grime from the saarff London boys.

Great stuff

The Golden Horde - The Golden Horde

This is a great album from the Irish indie garage punksters.

I first came across these in the eighties where they were expected to be the next big thing, which never happened. If they had been around ten years later things would have been very differant.

They have left a legacy of great, great music for us to enjoy including this album from the early nineties.

Seasick Steve & the Level Devils - Cheap

Seasick Steve, his overnight fame took him nigh on 65 years.

He does the blues in his own special style which has got him into the current festival circuit. A great example of the cream finally rising to the top.

This is the first album which set him off on his current trajectory.

The hobo done good.

Sonny Boy Williamson II - The Real Folk Blues (US 1966)

Sonny Boy Williamson II produces good quality clean and simple blues here for the "real Folk Blues" series.

I prefer the more upbeat tracks, listen and make your own mind up.

The stuff about his name, see link, is pretty wierd but don't let it detract from great quality music on offer on this album.

Sham 69 - Tell us the Truth

Bought this back, back, back in the past when I was at school.

The Vibes - What's Inside

I fkn love this band from the 1980's and I'm on a mission to convert the world to fans. Younger mates at work have already got them on their ipods and moan about the limited output, 1 album, a couple of singles, a bootleg live then nothing.

Saw them live loads, they fkn rocked. Unlike some of their mates from back then the music fully stands the test of time.

When they do covers or their own stuff, they fkn owned every song they play. I've heard them describe as psycho-garage and I reckon that gets it about right. Slap bass, fuzz guitar, urgent sound and blinding vocals.

This is a vinyl rip as they only have 2 tracks out cd on one of the ace compiliations. Listen, Listen LISTEN then spread the word. Their singles soon.
enjoy - track listing in comments.

The Chords - So far away

This band was much loved by my Parka wearing pals back in the 80's. It wasn't for me at the time, I was more likely to approach a scooter with an angle grinder instead of lights and mirrors.

When I came across this i couldn't resist seeing how they have weared over the years.

Forget the mod revival label and just listen to the sh#t hot post punk power pop on offer here. This is a seriously good album.

Go for it and enjoy. Track listing in comments

You know what you've gotta do. Enjoy

Various Artists - James Brown's Funky People

The first of a 3 album collection that everyone who loves a bit of funk should own.

All of the tracks are from the James Brown stable and most have been sampled here there and fkn everywhere so you'll find them familiar.

Proper hard basslines, funky beats, blinding vocals, the occasional jazzy vibe all add up to a must have album.

Motorhead - Motorhead

I'm generally not a fan of rawwwkkkkkkkk, whether it's poodle haired 80's muppets, pretentious 70's c#cks or the later on tedious dark metally stuff played by tw@ts pretending to be darkkkkkkk..

However there are exceptions and Motorhead are the Daddy of all exceptions.

They play proper hard paced, f#ck off, in your face rock "n"roll and they play it better than anyone else.

1st album, more to come, Lemmy is a god, get in. Enjoy

It takes a minute, you don't have to leave your name, no-ones making money, so do the right thing. Ta

How Do I Use Rapidshare etc ?????????

When you first start checking out what is available on the internet it can be confusing.

On Blogs you will often see links to music (MP3's) and full albums or full CD's to the following sites:
Rapidshare, Megaupload, Mediafire, Megashare, Depositfiles, Sendspace, Hotfile, Badongo, Turboupload, Yousendit etc.
All of these sites want you to pay to join them, however they can be used to free.
  • Stick the link (copy and paste) in your browser (or in some cases simply click the the link).
  • You will be taken to a page that will offer you free or "premium" option.
  • Go for the free. Some sites (e.g Megaupload) will aske you to enter a short, displayed code. Do it.
  • You will now have to wait for the time the screen tells you.
  • When the countdown finishes click "download now". Your music is now downloading.
  • When it finishes it will be either a file ending in .zip or .rar. Windows will open .zip. if it is .rar file then download 7zip (google it), it's free and it works or buy Winrar.
  • On some sites there are limits on how often you can download a file. (Not mediafire)
  • unplugging the internet and restarting it may cheat the limits.
  • Let me now how you get on
