The Celibate Rifles: K. Steedman: lead guitar, backing vocals / D. Lovelock: lead vocals / D. Morris: rhythm guitar / J. Leone: bass,
backing vocals / N. Rieth & P. Larsen: drums.
Playing stripped-down, loud, and fast Ramones-inspired guitar rock, the Celibate Rifles were one of the earliest punk bands to emerge during the post-Radio Birdman/Saints era. Taking their cues from these Aussie bands, along with the American hard rock of the Stooges, MC5, and Blue Oyster Cult, the Rifles were led by the twin-guitar attack of K. Steedman and D. Morris, and the deadpan baritone of vocalist D. Lovelock. They exploded out of the gates in 1982 with a series of records (released in Australia only) fueled by high-speed guitars, wah-wah-strangulated solos, and cartoon-ish, tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Source
"...Let’s talk about "Yizgarnnoff" a little first. It’s a set of 18 songs, the first 12 recorded at New York’s CBGB’s (which may have made some people think the album was a reissue of "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", since that was recorded in the same venue a few years earlier), the next 5 at a show in Sydney, and the closer for a JJJ “Live at the Wireless” show. There’s a nice preview of “Brickin’ Around” to kick things off, an awesomely high energy version of “Happy House”, and a powerful take of “Groovin’ In The Land Of Love” from the CBGB’s show. The Sydney show has a neat surprise with a take of “Tubular Greens”…one of the best tracks from their debut, "Sideroxylon. The JJJ cut is a scorching version of the old blues classic “Baby Please Don’t Go”. Overall, "Yizgarnnoff" is an impressive testament to the live power of the Celibate Rifles..."

Salut Rambler! Alors là chapeau bas ! Un des plus grands groupes australiens, sans aucun doute. J'avais l'habitude de fouiner dans les bacs à vinyl afin de dénicher un maximum de choses en provenance de ces aussis là, alors je suis hyper content de trouver içi (aussi) ce disque là... Seul blème: le lien 2 ne marche pas ("actuellement indisponible") :-((


Excellents ces aussies!
Te bile pas pour "Ce fichier est momentanément indisponible"...
Depuis le changement de formule de Rapidshare, Megaupload accueille trop de monde donc sans doute qu'à certains moments certains fichiers sont temporairement impossibles à télécharger : il suffit de repasser (des fois qq minutes après) pour que ce soit OK !
