VIVE LE ROCK - Back In The Night (A Compilation)
It's been a while since I've posted any music, so here's a little something that's got a bit of everything for everyone who's a lover of all things Rock'n'Roll, Punk, New Wave and Beyond!
WILKO JOHNSON kicks the proceedings off with a reworking of the song he wrote for Dr Feelgood, Sneakin' Suspicion. KILLING JOKE show that they are still a force to be reckoned with, Corporate Effect takes the roof off. THE CHEATS turn in a cover of Demolition 23's (Mike Monroe from Hanoi Rocks band) Hammersmith Palais. THE DRESDENS Out On The Streets, is just that; a slice of Rock'n'Roll from the streets. RT-ZED were formed by Steve Gantley (SLF and The Alarm) as a vehicle for his rock out anthems like You Are Free. Celtic Folk Punkers SIR REG turn in the frantic violin drenched 'Til The Dead Come Alive. Veterans from the Californian Punk scene the SWINGIN' UTTERS have matured and evolved, as the semi-acoustic track Stuck In A Circle testifies. V8 WANKERS burn up the Rock'n'Roll highway with Road Hog. Hot on their heels are CIRCUIT 68 whose Perno Inferno channels 60's Psychedelia into something very 21st Century. Hungarian Punkabilies THE SILVER SHINE leave the listener In The Middle Of Nowhere with their foot tapping. Rock'n'Roll. Los Angeles garage punks JJ&THE REAL JERKS keep the motor running on their Economy Class Ego Trip. New comers to the block BRAXTON HICKS provide a jaunty and jumpy little poppy and punky number called Never Kill Yourself. The brilliantly named THE MEN THAT WILL NOT BE BLAMED FOR NOTHING serve up Victoria's Secret a chunk of something they call 'Steam Punk' Bored To Death by MONGREL rawks out with righteous rage, as does South Karia Night by Finland’s REJECTED. Well.... there you have it....15 assorted tracks that smash their way into yer skull and crash round yer head. Another top notch freebie from Vive Le Rock, posted here with scant regard for copy write laws. Enjoy!
