Delivering True Rock N' Roll Since 1974!

END OF AN ERA!

Posted

We’re very sad to report that the original BOMP pressing plant, the legendary Rainbo Records, is closing suddenly next month after 80 years in business. BOMP has been there from the beginning and of course ALIVE RECORDS has been pressing there from the start as well, along with many other labels here in Los Angeles. They’ve stuck with us thru thick and thin and we wont know what to do without them. Read all about it here and shed a tear with us.

The owner of Rainbo had kindly stored our mountains of jackets and stampers and labels there all these years without charge, but now BOMP has to find a new home and most pressing plants don't store parts any more.

As a result, we will have to quickly make as much room as possible for our jackets right here at the BOMP warehouse. We’ve decided to sell off some of our ARCHIVES in the interest of space, so you guys are the winners here! I’m gradually pulling everything from our RAINBO test pressings to one-only archive copies off the shelves over the next few months, so keep an eye on our update. Here’s today’s batch, along with some RESTOCKS and other new items.

ALSO just in, some $1 items on Dionysus,and lots more $5 and under items as well. Check the Dionysus label.

Thanks for all!

DEEP REDUCTION - ST(W Radio Birdman’s DENIZ TEK)Label:GET HIP Deep Reduction pays tribute to everything from delta blues to Led Zeppelin to ’70s Punk and Pop with Deniz Tek’s signature guitar mastery. Deep Reduction came to be when Radio Birdman’s Deniz Tek was asked to produce the latest Stump Wizards record, “Contains Lead.” The band and the producer hit it off well and the first Deep Reduction single, “Black Tulip” was the result. Recorded during breaks in the action, it was a spontaneous burst of energy that resulted in this follow-up full length. Sure, this record has it’s roots in Tek’s classic Radio Birdman days and the Stump Wizards mutant punk/hard rock sound, but it really is something entirely new and different and something to be reckoned with.

GERMS-Germicide- Live at the Whiskey 1977 180 gram -Label:BOMP Records Live at The Whiskey 77 We are seldom lucky enough to hear one of our favorite bands at the earliest state of development. In the case of the Germs, LA's most radical punk band, someone was fortunately on hand with a remote 8-track studio to record their very first gig. Part of Kim Fowley's 1977 "Punk Rock Weekend" at the Whiskey a Go Go, it's a rough, honest, eye-opening set, showing the Germs as they really were. Originally released in a limited vinyl edition in 1980, Germicide quickly went out of print, then was issued cassette-only by ROIR. Now on 180 gram vinyl for the first time in more than 15 years.

SCRATCH BONGO WAX - Surfin Turd(So Cal garage punk) Label:BACCHUS/DIONYSUS “I was introduced to this fairly prolific Thousand Oak, CA crew via the crucial, Ben Weasel-curated Punk USA compilation. Though plenty snide and irreverent, Scratch Bongowax's pop and cranky garage-rawk tangents must have made them stick out like out like a sore thumb amongst their purist punk contemporaries. Mudhoney by way of Mr. T Experience? Sort of - and to large extent it actually works.”- Wilfully Obscure 45 RPM $3 SKU:20686

BARON FOUR - Silvaticus ( PRETTY THINGS style-EMBROOKS related )-Label:GET HIP These 12 tracks demonstrate the Baron Fours ability to craft gritty R&B-based tunes with frantic garage-punk raunch.

With one LP and four singles under their belt, UK's premier garage/beat exports The Baron Four push forward with their strongest release to date here, both in terms of song writing and recording quality. All the key elements are here including fervent vocals on top of clanging guitars, rumbling bass and thunderous drums recorded in glorious mono. CD $12 SKU:21814

BATORS, STIV- L.A.

Features a 24 page booklet with liner notes and rare photos. CD $10 SKU:21941

BATORS, STIV- L.A L.A (DEAD BOYS FRONTMAN Label:BOMP Records As the frontman for the Dead Boys, Stiv Bators terrorized audiences with his snotty, in-your-face punk rock style. But after the Dead Boys, Bators embarked on a musical journey that saw him touch upon new wave (the Wanderers), goth rock (the Lords of the New Church), and power pop (during a brief solo career), as well as a fling with movie acting. Born Steve Bator on October 22, 1949, in Youngstown, OH, Bators took a liking to garage rock and proto-punk early on -- a story he liked to tell is that it was he who handed Iggy Pop the jar of peanut butter that he smeared across his chest and threw around while walking on the audience during the Stooges' televised infamous 1970 rock festival in Ohio (additionally, Bators befriended the Ramones during the quartet's first Ohio performance).

BIRDLAND - With Lester Bangs (1979) Label:DIONYSUS The short-lived group featuring the late, great gonzo-journalist along with Mickey Leigh from The Rattlers. A reissue of their only LP, recorded in 1979. Birdland was a posthumous release that contained material Lester had recorded with a New York band (also known as the Rattlers) that featured Joey Ramone's brother. This was more post-punk pop-sounding than his earlier stuff (especially "Let It Blurt") CD $3 SKU:21370

BOLIDES-Science Under Pressure (Cramps style garage/pop/punk) --Label:DIONYSUS he Bolides play a little like a faster, more conventionally garage rock version of the Cramps on their debut album.

DEAD SHERIFF- ROCKAPOCALYPTICA (70s/8-0s style hard rock) -Label:DIONYSUS Great Scandinavian band, inspired by both the hardest rockin' groups from the 70s & 80s, along with the fury of the aggressive punk rock, you are gonna just love DEAD SHERIFF! CD $1 SKU:19819

But one listen to the quintet’s warmly wonderful debut album Pacific Surf Line will instantly dispel any preconceptions about supergroup self-indulgence or side-project slumming. CD $10 SKU:16832

HOMESTEAD & WOLFE - Our Times :The Gold Star Tapes (1973-75) -Label:ANOPHOLES Originally released in 1975, Homestead & Wolfe's lone and unknown privately pressed LP is an artifact so lost to time, it has never appeared in any discography, list of rare records, or catalog, anywhere. However, exist it does, and now their story can be told. Anopheles Records has sat tight lipped on this discovery for the last year while researching and preparing this reissue from the original master tapes and with full cooperation of the group. Homestead & Wolfe was a folk-harmony group based around the United Methodist Good Samaritan church in Cupertino, CA. Comprised of two female lead vocalists, one male lead vocalist, and buttressed with superb male and female harmonies throughout, H&W performed original material in a rich, melodic folk-rock-country style that is well executed, as well as earnest and personal. These 15 tracks were recorded at the legendary Gold Star Studios in Hollywood between 1973-75. Engineered by Stan Ross, these recordings feature top flight studio musicianship from legendary 'wrecking crew' drummer Hal Blaine, guitarist Ben Benay (Goldenrod, Darius), acoustic guitarist Al Casey, monster bass player Ray Pohlman, not to mention one of the world's most renowned and respected pedal steel guitar players, Jay Dee Maness (Buck Owens, the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo LP). The harmonies and arrangements of H&W recall both the Mamas and the Papas and the Carpenters at times, but much of the music deals with darker themes: the story of Wounded Knee told in 'See The Children Die', the organ fueled psychedelia of 'Your Freedom's In Question', aimed at the Nixon administration at the time, remains apropos today, and recalls the work of Growing Concern, Birmingham Sunday, Art of Lovin' and the Poppy Family. There are plenty of surprises here, as we located 6 unreleased tracks to augment the 9 tracks on the original album, including the startlingly great and dynamic cut, 'Beat of the Drum', which sounds as if the Bangles were hired to front Goldenrod for a one off single. The full color 16 page booklet tells the story in their own words, features images of the touring group and recording sessions at Gold Star, and maintains the high standard of archival work Anopheles Records is known for. Homestead & Wolfe represents a highly unusual and strikingly original blend of unproven but talented young vocalists, top quality session players and engineering, and a truly rare chemistry that makes this one of the great folk-rock discoveries of the last 10 years."

The CD contains an eight page lyrics booklet. On offer are 13 sparkling guitar songs, sometimes stomping fierce, fuzzing and rocking the garage way, sometimes melodic, or even melancholic, but always with conviction and persuasion and depth. You can hear the influences from the past, you can hear some '60s twang or some '70s hook, but it is definitely a contemporary sound. The Miners are diggin' deep once more. The title refers to an old J.R. Ewing (Dallas) quote. CD $14 SKU:19410

MOTHERS ANGER-ST -(SEATTLE PSYCH) PROD BY MICHAEL DAVIS MC5-Label:DIONYSUS The Mother's Anger is a two-piece psychedelic punk band from Seattle, WA that incorporates Middle-Eastern melodies and Drum n' Bass rhythms into a heavy, danceable, dream-like adventure
The Mothers Anger is a two-piece band from Israel that sounds like a five piece band from Detroit. Could this be because the debut full length by Drummer/Vocalist Jimi and Guitarist/Vocalist Stitch was produced by bassist Michael Davis of legendary Detroit rockers The MC5? You read that right, a two piece band in which the guitarist tunes a few strings to play the bass and guitar parts simultaneously, enters the studio with a producer who happens to be a famous bass player (and also plays on a track!). CD $1 SKU:19778

RAINY DAY SAINTS REflected Cleveland psych, garage punk, pure pop ,prog)Label:GET HIP You don’t have to listen to the Rainy Day Saints for long to surmise that their heady amalgam of psychedelia, garage punk, pure pop and prog-rock is the product of astute music fandom.Rainy Day Saints were born out of frustration, heartache, love and power chords. Setting controls for the heart of the sun is multi instrumentalist Dave Swanson. He and his cohorts parade along the rock and roll route oblivious to the fact that the scenery along the way has most definitely changed. In other words, they do what they want, when they want and for no one else but themselves. Why else would they reference Hawkwind, Roxy Music, Crazy Elephant and Johnny Thunders in one fell swoop! Selfish? Perhaps, but that is not their concern. It’s all about the melodies, the harmonies, the loud guitars, the driving bass, the bashing drums and the snarling saxophone. Things like : “pristine electrified paisley underground jangle”,“a nastier version of The Move and the harder side of the Dream Syndicate”, “an elegant almost British classicism of hazy, psychedelicate pop-rock swirls”, “ Cheap Trick meets The Nazz meets early Flaming Lips”, “reminds me of the Monkees”, and our favorite, “ Mr. Swanson is one talented motherfucker” are just a few of things that have been said about Rainy Day Saints. CD $12 SKU:21867

SAMMY MASTERS- EVERYBODY DIGS (50s Rockabilly legend)-Label:DIONYSUS The groundbreaking return of '50s Rockabilly legend, responsible for songs like "Pink Cadillac" and "Some Like It Hot!"

SCHIZOPHONICS-PEOPLE IN THE SKY (MC5, Stooges, James Brown, Hendrix and Iggy Pop style)Label:PIG BABY This San Diego-based combo is inspired by (and reminds of) the rock'n'roll energy and showmanship that fueled a.o. The MC5, Stooges, James Brown, Hendrix and Iggy Pop. 'People In The Sky', the band's sophomore full-length, is characterized by the same rawness as The Schizophonics' live shows. CD $17 SKU:21768

SCOTT “DELUXE” DRAKE - WORLD’S STRONGEST MAN -DEBUT SOLO FROM FOR HUMPERS FRONTMAN Label:DIONYSUS LA rock legends THE HUMPERS former front-man extraordinaire, Scot “Deluxe” Drake continues his legacy with an milestone solo debut album. While everything The Humpers ever did was in the red, Scott wanted to make an album that had some peaks and valleys. “The World’s Strongest Man” peaks equals that of any Humpers release while the valleys tread water walked on by the likes of The Gun Club, Porter Wagner, Johnny Cash and other dark men. Scott retains his witty lyrics in a pleasure-filled program of rocket-fueled rock-action, melodic-musical-mayhem! CD $1 SKU:17703

SYSTEMADDICTS -BROKEN HEARTED ON THE NULLABOR (aussie Garage punk)-Label:OFF THE HIP Systemaddicts are a fun, energetic six piece garage punk group from Adelaide, South Australia. They were formed by original members Liam Convey, guitarist, singer and songwriter and his bass guitarist sister Kaeli when they were still teenagers. They were joined by Jamie Woolaway on organ, Frank Boulden on drums, later replaced by current drummer Elliot Hoskin, their younger brother Rory, on Trombone (who was only 16 at the time), and Tasman Strachan on second guitar. Their style originally was a blend of the hardcore punk that Liam had been doing in his previous teenaged group The Subtitles, with the more sixties influenced keyboard style Jamie was playing with The Molting Vultures.
The Systemaddicts are huge fans of 60s era groups such as The Sonics and The Loved Ones and are also big fans of 70s/80s groups like Magazine, Radio Birdman, The Birthday Party, and The Sunnyboys. Liam Convey draws upon these influences and more when he composes the original tunes the group plays, featuring honest lyrics reflecting the contemporary Australian experience. CD $5 SKU:18017

TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS- Live Stockholm July, 1971 (psych) DOUBLE - Label:DRONE SYNDICATE (SWEDEN) Tokyo's Taj Mahal Travellers were one of the prime examples of a band more heard-of than actually heard. Their vinyl legacy (the 1972 LP July 15, 1972 released on CBS/Sony Japan; the 1974 2LP August 1974 released on Columbia Japan and recently reissued by P-Vine as a 2CD; one side of the mythical Oz Days Live 2LP compilation released on Oz in 1973 and recently bootlegged as a single LP) could dig a hole in your wallet deeper than the Grand Canyon. However, the recent reissues have spread the gospel and so here is the chance to hear the young Taj Mahal Travellers live in Stockholm during their 'tour' through Europe in 1971. It's one 2-hour long improvised track. Enough free-floating higher key bliss to keep every grown-up space cadet happy for a lot longer. This 2CD set is limited to 1000 copies." From Julian Cope's Japrocksampler: "This album is a discorporated, cerebral dance whose rhythm sounds like six weather Gods emulating the cover of Deep Purple's Fireball by zooming around Silverstone circuit just inches above the track, each urging himself on by making engine noises: 'Eee-oww-urghh-ow!!!!!!!' CD $14 SKU:19043

TEA & SYMPHONY-Jo Sago (70s underground classic) Label:ESOTERIC Newly remastered edition of the underground classic album by Tea & Symphony. “Jo Sago” was the band’s second (and final) album and originally appeared in November 1970 on the now legendary HARVEST label. The band began life as a Progressive Folk band comprising of the core members JEFF DAW (Vocals, Guitar, Flute), JAMES LANGSTON (Vocals, Guitar) & NIGEL PHILLIPS (Drums, Recorder, Keyboards) and were part of Jim Simpson’s Birmingham-based Big Bear Management stable of artists (who also included BAKERLOO, BLACK SABBATH and LOCOMOTIVE). By the time of the “Jo Sago” album, Jeff Daw and James Langston were joined by BOB WILSON on Keyboards, Guitar and Bass and had moved further into the area of Progressive Rock. Produced by Tony Cox at Sound Techniques studios, “Jo Sago” was a conceptual work that touched on subjects such as race relations in 1970s Britain and more. The album is now regarded as a classic of the era, with original HARVEST vinyl copies changing hands for significant sums. This official Esoteric Recordings reissue has been newly re-mastered from the original tapes and features a booklet with restored artwork and an essay." CD $10 SKU:21299

TELEGRAPH AVENUE - ST (Peruvian 70s psych rock) -Label:RE-PSYCHLED Telegraph Avenue’s debut album appeared on the market in Peru, and became the best selling rock record of the year. The time was right for Latin rock with psychedelic touches (a fact evident all over the Americas), and Telegraph Avenue delivered: guitars saturate the amplifiers, using natural distortion and feedbacks, with Latin bass lines, powerful drums and Latin flavored percussions filling all songs with the uniqueness of their sound. Their songs sometimes sound like Grand Funk’s early records, but others have vocal melodies more akin to a West Coast psych style. Now, 35-years later, Repsychled Records has the pleasure to present the definitive reissue of this album; this reissue is the first done using the original master tapes, and was remastered with tube amplifiers; it includes the original artwork in a gatefold mini-LP format, a booklet with unseen photos and souvenirs from the band’s concerts, an extra insert with band biography, and an unreleased song.

THUNDERS, Johnny--Diary of a Gypsy Lover 23 TRAX ALTERNATE STUDIO CUTS,LIVE,RADIO)?Label:SONIC Punk rock guitar hero, earning a cult following for his noisy but epic style a few years before the insouciant new music gained its name. Following in the footsteps of his idol and role model Keith Richards, Johnny Thunders (born John Anthony Genzale, Jr.) lived the ultimate rock & roll life, spending most of his days churning out tough, sloppy three-chord rock & roll and gaining nearly as strong a reputation for his decades-long struggle with addiction as for his music. Thunders made his greatest impact as a member of the New York Dolls, the proto-punk glam rockers of the early '70s. During the late '70s, he was a familiar figure on the New York punk scene, both with his band the Heartbreakers and as a solo artist. Thunders performed and recorded steadily until his death in 1991, turning out a series of records that inadvertently documented the struggles of his life and his art. CD $10 SKU:20428
