Powder Monkeys
Time Wounds All Heels

Colored Balls
Heavy Metal Kid

This is a true proto-punk slab of dynamite, right up there with similar recordings by the likes of the MC5 and the Pink Fairies. Featuring a mix of growling punkers (the title track, 'Private Eye'), '50s rockers (a cover of '(You're So Square) Baby I Don't Care', 'Need Your Love'), hi-energy boogie ('Do It', 'Dance To Th...view item »


Cheater Slicks

Bored
Take It Out On You

Here's a reissue of a 1990 album from Australia's Bored!, recorded in the band's death throes and interestingly featuring the late Tim Hemensley, singer and bassist from GOD, who joined the band briefly after that act split up. His influence is very plainly felt, too, with the opening two tracks being Hemensley-penned n...view item »


Colored Balls
Ball Power

This is a bit of odd one. My first impressions were that they sounded like Status Quo. Those thoughts were quickly banished however. This is more messy, more punk (Despite it being from 1973 and there being an 11-minute long song) and better than the Quo. “Flash” is a great opener and there is some real raw rock ‘n’ roll ...view item »
