Rick, Frick and Jonk lived together in Philly in the mid 1990's. They formed this group. They played some shows around, put out a 7" & a full length.
They rarely use their real names.They do like to share. They may return one day. Until then, enjoy this:

Great raucous stompin' garage band from southern CA. It's been a while since trash rock was this good. I can't stop listening to it and dancing my fanny off. Not sure if they are still performing, their website seems pretty abandoned, which is why I am posting this.

Balls out Crypt records band from Michigan. This record has some pretty good garage punk leanings, with almost metal drumming. It's a little too much for me at times, but "Midnight 'til Noon" is such a great song I just had to post it. If you like Motorhead (like I do) check this out. It took me a while to really appreciate this one but lately I've been blasting it a lot so up it goes!

This came out about the same time as the Drags 1st (see last post). Bought it simply because it was issued by Crypt Records. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I'm not gonna explain the Country Teasers, you either get 'em or you don't and I feel like any attempts I make are just gonna come out seeming snotty and unnecessary. This record is a little more aggressive (sonically anyway) than their others. Once upon a time I would have called it my favorite but these days I like most everything they've ever done equally.
P.S. this is from the CD, which adds 2 songs ("Anytime, Cowboy" and "#1 Man) from their 1st 7" to what was initially a 10" album.

Good ass 70s style rock from Raleigh NC. I never knew much about these guys but for a while there, it seemed like they were always in either Seattle or Portland, and I never missed those shows. Two drummers and it really makes a difference. This was their first album on Estrus. There are a few things on this record that bug me, but not many. I could do without the falsetto on "Lose that Smile," but it's still a great jam. Anyway hear for yourself.
Most people should know the name Bob Log by now. I haven't seen this one posted around the net, not really sure if it's ever been commercially available. Bought it from the man himself at a show in Arcata CA a few years back. Not exactly the best recording, but this being Bob Log, that's pretty much irrelevant. If I can get a scanner working I'll post the album cover... for now you're stuck with the jams only.
I dug this up recently. Hadn't really listened to it for about 10 years now, but been kinda into it lately. I'm surprised Satisfact isn't a better known band today. Maybe it is and I'm just old. Anyway, this (their first) is my favorite of their albums but the others are good too.

|Review||by Stewart Mason|
An obscure 1971 release by New York Latin soul-jazz heavyweights Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers, this version of Yaina tacks on a remarkable reworking of the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" at the front, with an opening section even more dolorous and somber than the original that quickly shifts into a hot, percussion-heavy workout with an almost gospel-like quality. Why it wasn't on the original album is a mystery, because it towers over the rest of these songs. Not that there aren't some gems here; "Cease the Bombing" manages to make an effective anti-war statement just with flutes, vibes, gentle percussion, and a melancholy wordless vocal chorus, and a funked-up cover of John Coltrane's classic "Naima" works surprisingly well. Some of the tracks, though, are simply undistinguished riffs worked over for a few minutes and then dropped with little elaboration. Luckily, the good-to-great tracks outnumber the bummers.
