Teenage Treats Part 1

OK, for tonight I am going to gift you with the fine set "Teenage Treats", ten discs of obscure singles
that you will, or SHOULD love to death.....I am pretty certain these came from the great "Music Ruined My Life" post, sorry if I am not correct there, but this is a wonderful collection of late 70's/early 80's singles that works to perfection..... hope you like em..... five discs tonight, 5 more when I choose to arise on Wednseday..... OK, Volume 1..... anyone you've ever heard of hear? NO? Well, that's what I consider GREAT,if I can introduce you slugs to something other than the greatest hits of Journey or something, I have done my job.....Volume 1 includes cool singles from  Razar ("Idle Rich"), Innocent Vicars ("Starship 22"), Moskow ("Man fromm Uncle"), and even AD 1984 ("The Russians Are Coming")..... fine singles collection, hope this stuff keeps your interest, I think this is a WONDERFUL set.

Volume 2 continues along the same lines, The Wasps contribuet the title rack to the collection "Teenage Treats", we also get wonderful stuff from the Warm Jets, Flys, Jimmy Edwards & the Profile, Red Raeg and more, totally essential. So, onto Volume 3, which features a couple of two-sided singles, such as The Surgeons "Sid Never Did It"/"Breaking Rocks on Riker's Island", and the Dregs "School Girls In Bondage"/ "Dregs of Humanity"...... also plenty of single tracks from Vom, Klips 88, Friction, and loads more...... essential, essential, essential.

Volume 4 features lots more gems from Tunnelrunners, DC10's, The Voice of the Puppets, Zipper, not to mention a fine live track from the Wasps ("Can't Wait for it '78")... .these are great discs for anyone of you who may love young people attempting to crank out the punk rawk, trust me,you gonna LUUUUUV these!

So, we press on to Volume 5, another wonderful disc, with a ton of bands we've never heard of (you KNOW how I love that stuff), such as Satyr, Johnny & the Lubes, Bleach Boys, IQ Zero, and plenty more.....

I suggest you try these out if you wish to step out of the mainstream and find some good rocking tunes that you've not heard'll need to trust me, but these are nice, short, blasts of teenage rock n roll, that I think will be at home on the shelf of ANYONE who appreciates THIS blog........

I do this for YOU though, trying to get DIFFERENT sounds out to you on a fairly daily basis..... as always, please let me know what you think about a post such s this, I copped this one from another blog, but I don't think he'll mind as he has slowed down his posting..... and I TRULY want to keep this killer music in circulation....... be back tomorrow with discs 6-10, hope you guys enjoy them to the extent I did when I first heard them....... love you all, Scott M......

    Excellent ! You re blog is now an obligatory daily "rendez-vous" for me!! Suggestions ? Afghan wigs and generally studio rarities when possible (sorry if you did it, I didn't check). At last, you could try new wave punk french bands from 70/80's ; Skydog commando (comp), asphalt Jungle, metal urbain (aka Dr Mix), les Dogs, les Coronados (you have to hear this one, they sing in french but music is such original : between garage and captain beefheart (they play as cover "zig zag wanderer), 1982-1990….Thanks for your blog G
