TIME FOR SOME ROCK'N'ROLL! wiv THE BARRACUDAS - The Barracudas (2005)


The Barracudas hit the streets, or the beach underneath the pavements in 1980, providing a welcome change to listening to Crass, The Clash etc. Alright their only hit 'Summer Fun' was a bit novelty, but the album it was taken from Drop Out With The Barracudas was ace. Jeremy Gluck and Robin Willis had both been floating about during the punk days, but took a different form of self expression with their 'surf and destroy' sound. Dropped by their record company, the band released records on a variety of smaller labels including Flicknife in Britain and Closer in France. Their sound had evolved into a more garagey clatter akin to The Flamin' Groovies, Chris Wilson from the band had joined The Barracudas. Saw them a couple of times in 1984, they were a great live act. Then they disappeared into the pit of cult status and forgotten great bands. Jeremy Gluck released a album with Nikki Sudden, but that was about it, until 2005 when this self titled album was released, only stumbled upon it on some music download site last week. Haven't stopped playing it since. It rocks! If yer into Thunders, The Ramones, Nikki Sudden etc this is a must, if not give it a go, there will be at least one track you like, and it aint gonna cost you.

Well, I am The Barracudas and it's amazing that 104 people have downloaded this already! No wonder our sales are fucked! I don't mind. What a world!

dip ventura, if indeed you are Jerremy Gluck, then Iam honoured by your pressence. I make no appologies for postin a truely magnificent album for others to share in, who may not have had the chance. Anyway you got some pennys from me from itunes. I try not to make a habit of sharing too much stuff that's commercially available, but every now and then I cant help myself if I think the albums worth it and people won't hear it if they don't get to know about it, am debating whether to post Knox's first Fallen Angels one at this moment. Cheers for commenting.

It’s a good album but not up to the quality of Meantime, which is the band’s best effort, in my opinion. Chris Wilson, sometime Barracuda and ex-Flamin’ Groovy, is back in the studio in a couple of weeks to start work on a new album. Details can be found at: www.flamin-groovy.com
