Radio Birdman - Descent Into the Maelstrom

Radio Birdman and this album in particular are generally considered to be the beginnings of the Australian underground punk movement. However, the band was not only influenced by common punk precursors The Stooges and MC5, but also early Blue Oyster Cult and even the surf bands of the 1960s. The album Radios Appear was groundbreaking in its day and has stood the test of time as a classic album decades later, but it is not what many would think of as strictly Punk Rock. http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/47398/Radio-Birdman-Radios-Appear/

Too Young to Die - Agent Orange

Οι καλιφορνέζοι Agent Orange ήταν από τους πρώτους που έκαναν την μίξη του punk rock με την surf μουσική, με το πρώτο τους σινγκλ το 1980 το "Bloodstains". Το όνομα τους προέρχεται από το φυτοφάρμακο με διοξίνες που ψέκαζαν οι αμερικανοί στο βιετνάμ. To "To young to die" προέρχεται από τον δίσκο Living in Darkness που κυκλοφόρησαν το 1982. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I didn't expect them to know my name/Surrounding me like a black steel frame/ I saw the world go up in flames/And I just smiled and stood there, watching And it doesn't seem like this is real/That's just the way I feel/I don't know why Well I've learned from my mistakes/This time I will escape/I'm too young to die/ We're all too young to die It doesn't seem like this is real/That's just the way I feel/I don't know why Well I've learned from my mistakes/This time I will escape/I'm too young to die

Pinocchio and the Puppets - Fusion

This record is most definately my favourite find of 2012 and I'm delighted to add it to my collection. When The Teddy Boys were either dropped by their label or simply decided to try something mind blowingly psychedelic with a different name, they came up with this impressive two sided instrumental.

Johnny Carbonaras - Hiastos

Οι Johnny Carbonaras παίζουνε κιθάρες και τρώνε όλο το φαϊ τους.
Το χειμώνα φοράνε φόρμες εργασίας αλλά το καλοκαίρι δεν κάνουν surf. 
Tο μπασοτύμπανό τους έχει διακριθεί στους χειμερινούς ολυμπιακούς αγώνες του Κάλγκαρι το '88, ενώ την ίδια χρονιά το theremin τους προτάθηκε για 'Οσκαρ ειδικών εφέ.
