This disc has been spinning non-stop here at the Cyber Lounge and I just can't get enough. The Golden Arms, a Japanese band, puts out high energy sleaze rock inspired by The Dolls, Thunders and Iggy. They perform a bunch of original material and several cover tunes including the Stones 'Little T&A', five Thunder's songs and an excellent bass heavy version of Iggy's 'Search And Destroy'. About half of the tunes are produced by the band itself and the Jeff Dahl produces the rest. Helping out on a number of tracks are an assortment of characters including Freddy Lynxx who plays guitar on 7 tracks.If you picked up the JT tribute CD called 'Stranded In The Dolls House' then you heard this band doing 'London Boys'.
The sound varies quite a bit throughout the 21 tracks due to the various people involved and the two different recording locals, Tokyo and Arizona. Jeff Dahl's production makes the band sound polished while still keeping the edge. And it's the edge that really shines through on the two live tracks ending the disc. They were recorded live on a Walkman recorder in an Arizona bar and they sound great to me.E. Davidson

Thanks, Rambler. Nice stuff. I never saw them live, but sounds like it would've been fun.

And thanks for posting the notes from Eric Davidson. The man really has a way with words, and I loved his "We Never Learn" book.

@ Zvone:
I'm sorry but when you asked me for the "Loco Live" album, I was thinking about "Autre Chose", the live album recorded in France with the confessions.
I don't have the "Loco live 76".
If someone can help...

"Loco live 76" est un cd japonais sorti chez Captain Trip dont la qualité de certains enregistrements live laisse sérieusement à désirer (du moins pour quelqu'un comme moi qui n'y voit d'interêt qu'anecdotique!)
Le seul live de Willie Loco que je possède c'est "Autre chose" mais si quelqu'un qui nous lit possède "Loco Live 76" et veut bien nous l'envoyer, nous le posterons sur le champs !
