I took the Donation post away though the goal aint met yet so I’ll throw it in your face in a week or so :). But a big THANK YOU to all of you who put some money into the site.
So Dieter Meier sings on No Chance. And on drums and bass we find Dieter Marthaler and Bruno who backed up Dieter on his solo effort. So No Chance sounds like a follow up to Cry For Fame so of course it’s a killer tune. The same can be said about The Source. The drive and punch is just amazing. To me Switzerland was a little bit like Europes answer to Australia with all these killer 7inches from Rebels, Dieter Meier, Nasal Boys etc.

Here’s something I’m sure you wouldn’t expect to see on this around the world trip; an American band! Yup, I’ve manage to find a band from that country as well. Had no idea until I dug really deep into the underground that the Yanks actually had punk bands that ended up on vinyl, and an even bigger surprise is that they even had a good band. I’m pretty sure this is as obscure this site will ever be, unless we’ll find a hidden gem from Mongolia or Albania in the future.
My favourite song of the 6 is Tie me up baby!, what a hit that song is! According to rumours a band called the Panics did a snotty and sloppy cover version of the song, but so far I haven’t managed to find any evidence of a recording of it. Just a little insane is a “cover” of the Pistols “Did you no wrong”, so just like their more well known Czechoslovakian collegues Energie G they did a lot of covers apparently.
Notice the insert that’s actually an insert with info of how to order the insert that was meant to come with the record! Hilarious!

What is there to say about such a great record like this? Absolutely flawless from start to finish. Yepp here’s another gem that Erich of Good Bad Music posted some time ago but his links are dead so here we go. The punch on this recording just hits me every time. Great playing, great songs and a tasty production.
“Guitarist Eddie Vincent and drummer Tad, having played together in Los Angeles with various bands since the early seventies, found themselves in London after touring Europe and North Africa with Swiss rocker and performance artist Bernard Constantin during the famous punk summer of 1977.”
I guess some collector scums almost fainted when they saw the sleeve here. “WTF? Does he owns that one??”. Don’t worry scums I don’t own the sleeve. I found thoes beautiful scans somewhere on the net some time ago but can’t remember where. Thanks to he/she who scanned it.
To me this another one of them “seven inch wonders of the world” and OF COURSE it has to come from kangaroo land. Up there with the rest of the aussie classics by the likes Victims, News etc etc fill in the rest.
One funny thing about ripping with new gear is that I all of a sudden hear a saxophone in the chorus of Cigarettes…never payed attention to that before.
“Embodied the image of what Brisbane’s visualization of ‘punk’ was all about. Raw, energetic and anti social and everything else that made the era fun, they captured the attention of fans, neighbours and the police.”

This is a repost from August the 22nd 2006. Added more scans, re-recorded and uploaded all the tracks. This time the tracks are from the original release and not the reissue. Sounds a bit beefier.
Ok, Strange Reaction posted this some time ago but since the files are 128kbps encoded the hihat and cymbals are just too nasty to my ears. And this 7inch is just to damned great to not be posted with a high quality rip.
Amazing in your face obnoxious LA punk that blows away their first 7inch by miles in case you’ve heard that one and got dissapointed(Note from Tony: This is their first.). Raw yet melodic. By the way did they bring The Drones-Further Temptations with them into the studio to have that as a reference during production? The beginning of This Generation… often misleads me into that I’m going to hear The Drones.
One funny thing is that “…vacation” actually sounds like me singing backing vocals. A little bit nasal and childish.
