Japanese import, 22 song comp from Arne Thelin who was the leader of a long list of really cool bands, our favorite one being The Kwyet Kings, whose songs dominate this collection, but he also was in the very Shambles/Barracudas like band, The Lust-O-Rama and Bittersweets. The material from Kwyet Kings is full of pistol whipping Plimsouls/Moberlys styled energy and nifty guitar work and vocals, a fast `n fresh distillation of power pop that nails the spirit of the above bands dead on and survives the act of nostalgia w/ease. The other bands are hard `n fast versions of garage bands like aforementioned Shambles, Chesterfield Kings and the fab great Barracudas. If you like a bit of buzz and power with your pop with a rootsy 60`s edge, this one is Extremely Highly Recommended! Notlame
