Greasy Rock'N'Roll Vol 1_f

i discovered this compilation series hidden away at the back of a pile of vinyl at hound dog records in north melbourne. it’s an awesome compilation of rare 50’s rock, rockabilly, garage and surf gems, put together by some guy on his record label that i know nothing about, and is seemingly google-proof. check out how awesome the sleeves are. if anyone’s interested there is a torrent out there, but if you can’t find it let me know and i can upload the whole series to rapidshare or something.

check out Rockers, the 1979 Jamaican film about life as a reggae musician. released right about the same time young british punks were introducing reggae as an influence in their music.

also, It Came From Detroit, a documentary about the early 2000’s garage rock ‘revival’ and it’s effects on the Detroit rock scene. features probably my favorite band of all time, the Dirtbombs. i wonder if it’ll get a release in Australia?
