This loose-legged compilation of trashy NYC bands is so consistently good, it could be a on RonCo or somethin’. They coulda sold this bitch on TV at the 3 AM next to the Pocket Fisherman in 1976, and the People would’ve eaten up. Why? Who? And How much, you say?
Why: Because New York City is all about the “People”, man. Despite the fact that Jami from the Sleazies helped put it together (a typically great and funny Sleazies track, “Wild Turkey Is Not a Meat” is included), and they’re from Providence, Rhode Island, NY bands are perfect for comps because they all sound like they’re ready to pick the band before ‘em off the floor as soon as they pass out. For example, although Andy G and the Roller Kings’ CBGB’s ‘77 Thunders-punk is a much more refined, vintage drunk ‘n’ roll sound then, say, the teenage casualty car-crash of The Yams, they still sound like they share a bass-player, if not a van or a groupie. I dunno if it’s because the clubs are open til 4 AM and 17 bands play every bill or it’s just some kinda rock n’ roll brotherhood, but NYC-based compilations always sound like a united front, and this one’s no exception. And that’s nice, ya know?
Who: The fast, fucked fury of The Shemps, the dive-bombing Swede-style sleaze of Some Action, the trashcan spookabilly of Little Killers, the bleary-eyed motorboogie of the Disruptors, the hard-hitting gutter-blooze of The Swaggerts, etc. Everybody on deck came to kill, baby. Sleazegrinder
