THE CORPSE GRINDERS - The legend of the Corpse Grinders

THE CORPSE GRINDERS The legend of the Corpse Grinders lp 1983 Fan club/New Rose 320 kbps
Rites, 4 whites / Mental moron / Pretty baby / Nothing left to lose / Knife's edge / Take what I can / Bulldog / Runaway / Frozen alive / City rocker / Diamond head.
Produced by R. Rivets & A.C. Doback
The Corpse Grinders : R. Rivets : guitar / S. Wylder : vocals, harmonica / B. Casper : bass, keyboards / T. Blaccard : drums.
A trivial footnote to New York's new wave underground, the Corpse Grinders were a useless rock group formed in 1977 by ex-Brats guitarist Rick Rivets and ex-Dolls bassist Arthur Kane (who didn't stay for much of the Grinders' year-long existence). The original quartet's few recordings — which amount to badly dated sub-Dolls R&B-punk with impressively lyrics — were posthumously compiled on "The Legend of ..." (Fan Club / New Rose), joining 1983 tracks by the reincarnated group.
The all-new "Valley of Fear" (New Rose) finds Rivets joining his Johnny Thunders-style guitar work and Bob Casper's ivory-tinkling in a diverse assortment of originals and a pair of credibly played Stones covers. Although much of the album is given over to boppy vintage rock'n'roll and acoustic ballads, the title track breaks away for lightweight goth with a hooky chorus. Trouser Press
In 2006, R. Rivets released an album called "City Rockers" with the Rick Rivets Band . Buy it here: cd baby or here R.R.B Site.

Thank you. I have regretted not buying the vinyl when I saw it some years ago, at the time thinking it would be inferior to the single. Sounds like a classic album now, would love to hear the '76 demos tho'.
