From their formation in to lead vocalist Lee Brilleaux's untimely death in , the band never left the road, playing hundreds of gigs every year. Throughout their entire career, Dr. That following first emerged in the mid-'70s, when Dr. Feelgood became the leader of the second wave of pub-rockers.
Unlike Brinsley Schwarz, the laidback leaders of the pub-rock scene, Dr. While the group's stripped-down, energetic sound paved the way for English punk rock in the late '70s, their back-to-basics style was overshadowed by the dominance of punk and new wave, and the group had retreated to cult status by the early '80s. By the end of , Dr. Feelgood's dynamic live act had made them the most popular group on the pub-rock circuit, and several labels were interested in signing them.
They settled for United Artists, and they released their debut album, Down by the Jetty, in According to legend, Down By the Jetty was recorded in mono and consisted almost entirely of first takes. While it was in fact recorded in stereo, the rumor added significantly to Dr. Feelgood's purist image, and the album became a cult hit. Jetty ushered in a new era as Dr. Punk soon followed Keltner , B. Tench , Mick Taylor Blending hard rock wallop, alternative rock smarts, power pop songcraft, and punk rock urgency, Dramarama was a band who seemed on the verge of a major commercial breakthrough several times during their year career.
Puzzlingly, it never arrived, though the band developed a potent following in their native New Jersey as well as the West Coast; their almost-hit, "Anything Anything I'll Give You ," was cited by L.
Formed in Wayne, NJ, by vocalist and songwriter John Easdale in , Dramarama self-released a single and a five-song EP before a French label commissioned a full-length album from the band, which recycled material from both previous releases.
The result, 's "Cinema Verite", featured "Anything Anything," which began scoring airplay after the album was picked up by Chameleon Records in the United States. The group relocated to California in time for their second LP, Box Office Bomb, which earned enthusiastic reviews but not significantly greater sales.
As the band was completing their fourth studio album, "Vinyl", in , Chameleon Records went bankrupt, and as the band scrambled to come up with the cash to finish the project, the elusive major-label deal finally materialized when Elektra picked up the project.
However, while the success of Nirvana in would seemingly have broken open radio for bands as adventurous as Dramarama, their sound was too far from grunge to capitalize on the new openness, and the band's album, "Hi-Fi Sci-Fi", failed to make an impact outside the band's devoted cult following.
Dramarama called it a day after a farewell show at Asbury Park's the Stone Pony in ; four years later, John Easdale returned to the music business with a solo album. The group was featured on the popular VH1 reality series Bands Reunited in , prompting the collective—minus bassist Chris Carter—to reform around material originally intended for an Easdale solo record.
Dramarama relased "Everybody Dies" in Fronted by singer Frankie Venom, this hard-rockin' quartet from Hamilton, Ontario owes more than its name to the Flamin Groovies — the records are full of non-stop crazed rock'n'roll songs about cars, parties, girls, booze and general wanton fun, all imbued with the original Groovies' unreconstructed spirit.
If they were smarter and more sarcastic, T. Head might have more in common with the old Dictators; as it stands, their sound, while hardly original, is perfect for parties held in gymnasiums. The first three records aren't hip, but they are solid, sweaty and convincingly salacious. Given a pluralizing, name-sanitizing "s," the group lowered its hysteria level on the six-song Tornado, an ill-advised stab at maturity and commercial hard-rock acceptability. Endless Party is a live greatest-hits rundown recorded on New Year's Eve Fortunately, the story doesn't end there.
Safely removed from the Lower 50's crass influence, the Canadians reclaimed both theit spelling and sense of fun on the nifty Trouble in the Jungle. Covering Bobby Fuller badly , Eddie Cochran weirdly and Elvis Presley very well amid a variety of equally gonzo originals, the band shifts gears easily from lightly played rockabilly pop to electric punk — sometimes in the same song.
Electric Guitar has only one non-original, but self-propulsion does nothing to impede the versatile fun. Electric Guitar is convincing proof that a neat and clean garage can still rock Daniel Lanois plays guitar on two tracks. Superb artwork by Max! While recording an album in , New York City punk band the Rat Bastards imploded due to typical musical differences, and two members, Andy Gortler guitar, vocals and Steve Baise bass, vocals , carried on with the project as the Devil Dogs.
Gortler originally formed a band called Gilligan's Revenge in the early '80s, which became Token Entry and then Black Train Jack after his departure. When "Saturday night fever " is issued in , it's nothing but a "big fat blast" , celebrated as a top-notch album back then and celebrated as a "goddamn masterpiece"and perhaps the best punk records of the nineties nowadays.
Being regarded as "thee Punk and roll band" now , they still play in various combos , as Andy in the fab Roller Kings , Steve first in the Vikings and then the Secrets plus a ton more and Joe first in the Prissteens then the Bomb Pops. Produced by Ross Wilson. Artwork by Max. Formed by Roddy Radalj , one originals of Australia's punk rock heritage , the band started out as a three-piece.
In early , New Zealand born Spencer P. All three single A-sides were lifted from the band's debut album , Ross Wilson-produced album "Highlights of a dangerous life" august , which concentrated on a straighter rock'n'roll approach.

They retained their trademark compressed vibrato guitar with the annoyingly fascinating decay fading into throbbing feedback howls. Incredible band. This exceptional Swedish band from Solna was a savage instrumental combo dedicated to putting the spirit of Link Wray onto the 80's They issued just a couple of singles and a mini album on Rainbow and Amigo records home of the Nomads , Pushwangers ,Wilmer X , Shoutless etc Jann S.
