Over the past two decades, Stockholm, Sweden's Nomads have taken the whole history of rock'n'roll (the cool parts, anyway) and recast it in their own image, an amalgam of Detroit, garage, rockabilly, Gibsons through Marshalls, and love (but not reverence) for roots. If you haven't surrendered to their sound yet, try listening to their double-disc Showdown 81-93 comp on Sympathy and coming away unconverted -- I DARE YA! For proof, try on, say, their killer covers of Alex Chilton's "Bangkok" or the Lyres' "She Pays the Rent" or I-94 Bar firm fave, the Dictators' "16 Forever." And these guys can write 'em too; just check out Nomad-penned classics like "Lowdown Shakin' Chills" or "Primordial Ooze" or "Surfin' in the Bars." The current "Big Sound 2000" disc alone bears "Don't Pull My String," "Ain't Dead Yet," "Another Man's Cross," and "The King of Night Train," and there's much, much more. Or better yet, if you can go see 'em live. I-94 Bar
This 42-song, two-CD box set features material recorded by the Nomads from 1981 through 1993. The first CD features the best tracks from the band's albums and singles, while the second CD consists primarily of rarities, outtakes, and live performances. Most of their songs are remakes, and even the originals are indebted to other musicians; for example, "Where the Wolf Bane Blooms" borrows the guitar line from "Borderline" by DMZ, "Call off Your Dogs" was written for the band by Jeffrey Lee Pierce of the Gun Club and Peter Case of the Plimsouls, and "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" features guest lead guitar by Johnny Thunders. While the group may not be innovative or original, they are a very good garage punk cover band, as proven by their fiery renditions of songs by the Strangeloves ("Night Time"), Standells ("Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White"), Tommy Bell ("Swamp Gal"), and others. Overall this is a solid, entertaining collection, but it's probably too extensive for someone who isn't already a dedicated fan. Allmusic
