about

NGL031, Edition of 100 (SOLD OUT)

“Pre-War Blues + Avant-Noise = Rock N Roll” reads the equation on the sleeve and it’s the perfect description of the sonics within, a Wildman amalgam of crude country blues, brokedown swing and post-Velvets free rock. Imagine Hasil Adkins and The Cramps cutting a ‘real people’ record with a buncha Nicodemus’s no-count biker mates as a backing band and with a vision of the future where the concept of established technique runs counter to the revolutionary demands of rock/roll and a vocalist who testifies like a black preacher on the make and you’re somewhere close to the liberated appeal of this crucial side. Guitarist, harpist and vocalist Ragtime Frank alongside percussionist Leighton Craig are/were members of legendary Australian underground group The Lost Domain and this feels like a stripped down glimpse of the mutant DNA that makes the mothership such a beautifully confusing spectacle. If your listening tastes run towards Dock Boggs as much as Rudolph Grey – and what are you doing reading VT if they ain’t? – then this is the sucker for you. Comes packaged in classy paste-on bootleg-style sleeves in an edition of only 100 copies, instantly sold out from the label, highly recommended. - Volcanic Tongue
