Description
Raven presents a superb 26-track, 78-minute CD collection from one of Americas original, and longest-running, garage-rock bands, self-proclaimed Living Legends, THE FLESHTONES. Formed in 1976 in Queens, New York by vocalist Peter Zaremba and guitarist Keith Streng, the Fleshtones combined fuzzed guitar and Farfisa organ with 50s rockabilly and 60s R&B into a potent retro stew they called Super Rock. Contemporaries of Suicide and the Cramps on the late-70s NY scene, the group became a huge influence on early 80s garage-rock revivalists Dream Syndicate, Plimsouls, Hoodoo Gurus etc. Amazingly, they are still at it today, finally garnering respect for being as raucous as ever. The I.R.S. Years 1980-1985 Its Super Rock Time covers their key five year tenure with Miles Copelands record label. Culled from their classic albums (Roman Gods, Hexbreaker!, Speed Connection) and numerous EPs and singles, highlights include the frat-rocking Girl from Baltimore, the whomping Screamin Skull, the moody Shadow Line, the Standells-like Stop Fooling Around and one of their most memorable tunes, a tasty cover of Lee Dorseys Ride Your Pony. Many tracks are appearing on CD for the first time. Energetic, freewheelin and street-smart, the Fleshtones are cool, smart, witty, they rock pretty hard and their music sounds great at a party All Music Guide. With superb quality audio, detailed notes and color booklet, this excellent release is a must for fans of irresistible, reverb-drenched garage / R&B.
