Shrapnel – Combat Love 7″

shrapnel_combat.jpg

Dave Wyndorf who later formed Monster Magnet is one of the two geniouses behind “Combat Love”. A great uptempo punk/powerpop classic that makes your head bop. They released a second 7″ and a 12″ EP none of which I’ve heard. You can find this for a decent price at eBay. Decent means about $50. Produced by Legs McNeil!

    Hit the Deck, Men! Shrapnel rocks. What I would give to hear Dave Wyndorf’s voice on “Sleepover” or “Siegfriend Line” again. Anybody?

    • Battershell says:

      Oh man, you are sooooo right. I would kill to hear that stuff again. THAT WAS MY YOUTH! I left a phone message with Daniel Rey once looking to see if he would part with any demos. He called me back and left a message thanking me for my interest but said that he was holding on to the stuff “just in case…” The two 45s were great, but I want to hear those othe songs so badly.

        I have all those songs bootleged from CBGB’S i would be lost without hearing these songs every so often, Definite youth days! unbelievable songs..

        • Battershell says:

          JoFloors…would you be interested in making a copy of those songs for me. Just like you said that you would be lost not hearing those songs, I have been lost for years now…Please leave a reply here to let me know if this is a possibility.
