Dog Of Mystery - I Saw Mommy Kissing Satan's Claws



On this fine x-mas eve of 2011 i give you one of my all time fave holiday classics. Pre-Monster Magnet, Dog Of Mystery, doing I Saw Mommy Kissing Satan's Claws. This is taken from the uber rare Island of Misfits Toys tape compilation from 1988, put out by Cool Beans Tapes. Cool Beans was run by John McBain who was the original guitar player for MM & DOM. Lead vocals are done by one of my all time fave rock dudes and all around swell guy Big Tim Cronin. Awesome.
Have a happy!

Truk - Truk Tracks




Band Members:

J. Martin (Moby) Anderson, bass & vocals
Danny Cornett, drums & vocals (original drummer)
Bill (Willie) Daffern, drums & vocals (on last 4 songs cut--lead vocal on Winter's Coming On)
George Michael (Mike) Graham, lead vocal
James Patrick (Pat) Graham, organ & vocals
Glenn Ray Townsend, guitar & vocals

"Criminally overlooked hard-rock with some psych elements thrown in and great multi-layered vocals. No one seems to know this..."

"A hard rock outfit from Oklahoma, with histrionic vocals and loud organ. Their album contains a cover of "Gun's Yellow Cab Man"; the other cuts are self-penned. "You" is a beautiful ballad.

In 1973 Glenn Townsend resurfaced with Johnny Rivers and later Willy Daffern played with the reformation of Captain Beyond."

"A lost little slab o' sludgy early 70s rawk from Truk -- who, as far as we know, only ever cut this one LP for Columbia Records. Truk obviously had a pretty strong affinity for the trailblazing trudge of titans like Cream, and the powerful, messy drunken genius of early Guess Who. It's the kind of record where the drums and electric guitar crunch buries the sound right into the middle of your chest when it's played loud enough. The sound was surely found at a dime-a-dozen in '71, but they sure don't make them like this today! 10 tracks, including "Country Woman", "Got To Find A Reason", "Pretty Lady", "Yellow Cab Man", "Silence Ending", "Max", "Sun Castle Magic" and more."

"Dewey Martin produced Truk and later became a mechanic. In the late '70s he also played sessions on a Hoyt Axton album. Buddy Emmons kept on recording hundreds of country sessions, Harvey Kegan rejoined Doug Sahm and Augie Meyer, and Steve Lefever became a session man, notably with Alexander Harvey. Darnell, Bradstreet and Alden are currently playing in country-rock outfit The Electric Range."

"Truk Traks Album cover picture shot at the East-West Truck Terminal in Orange County during a strike by the Teamsters. The L.A.P.D. was called by the security dude, who was not told we had permission to shoot the pictures."


All of the above info is stolen from CROTCHBAT. The record and rip are mine...

in every dream home... a heartache mix tape - sometime mid 2007




More mix tape bullshit. The cover has the track list all over the place. side b starts on the second half of side a and continues on the 2nd half of side b and ends on side b on the 1st half and is missing the last track..... get all that?

some really great songs on this one. if you can't find some stuff you like on this you probably don't like music very much....

Unknown Acapella Doo Wop Group - (Del Rockers?)



Ok, so i bought this acetate for 25 cents and I'm a bit puzzled (not hard to do). There are 2 different sets of writing on this thing. The pencil underneath i can not make out, but on top of the pencil in pen it says Del Rockers, 1981, Ricky - Tom - Frank - Walt + Mike on both sides. Is this really from 1981? I have several other Audiodisc acetates and they look just like this one but are from the early to late 50's. Were they still making these audiodisc acetates in 1981? and the acapella doo wop sounds on this sound hauntingly authentic. Did the Del Rockers nail it in 1981? Or did some band called the Del Rockers mock up this acetate as a goof or trick? I don't know.... Both tunes are pretty good for accapella, which I'm not really a big fan of. I don't really know the names of the songs but i took a stab considering they say the same thing a bunch of times in each song. If any of this rings a bell drop a note and let me know. Thanks.
