Mick FarrenVampires Stole My Lunch Money ... LP
Logo/Munster (Spain), 1978. New Copy (reissue)... $28.99 29.99
Mick Farren has the hair of a hippie on the cover, but he comes across here with the raw energy of some of the best new acts on the New York scene during the early punk years – really stunning throughout, with a sound that rivals some of the best by the Dead Boys, Richard Hell, and even Television! Farren's vocals are very raw, and perfect for the sharp lyrics of the tunes, and the racing guitar that are there to help deliver the message – and if the whole thing wasn't issued on a tiny label, it might well have gone on to become one of the more important records of the time! Titles include "I Want A Drink", "Trouble Coming Every Day", "Zombie Line", "Son Of A Millionaire", "Drunk In The Morning", "Self Destruction", and "I Don't Want To Go This Way".

VariousLet The Electric Children Play – The Underground Story Of Transatlantic Records 1968 to 1976 (3CD set) ... CD
Transatlantic/Esoteric (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 30.99
A very cool look at the freakiest years of the legendary Transatlantic Records label – an important British imprint that was essential to blues and folk in the late 60s, but which also released some much trippier material too! The music here is a frenetic blend of jazz, folk, prog, and some surprisingly funky modes at times – a really fresh, freewheeling assemblage of different musical elements by a younger generation of musicians who were neither slavish to their influences, nor willing to let anyone hold back their creativity! Bigger names on the Transatlantic label have gotten huge rediscovery in recent years, but many of the artists here are much more obscure – brought together beautifully, along with a big booklet of notes that really gets at the diversity of the music. Titles include "Norwegian Wood" and "II BS" by Circus, "We Can Swing Together" and "Obadiah's Grave" by Alan Hull, "Metamorphosis" and "Billy The Monster" by The Deviants, "Paint It Black" and "We've Had It" by Jody Grind, "Skin Valley Serenade" by Skin Alley, "Criminal World" by Metro, "Mendle" by Mr Fox, "Don't Ever Give Up Trying" by Unicorn, "Mice & Rats In The Loft" by Jan Dukes De Grey, "Born To Be Free" by Marsupilami, "All In Your Mind" by Stray, "Tear Down The Wall" by Peter Bardens, "A Distant Thought A Point Of Light" by CMU, "Shelter" by Renia, "Opening Move" by Gryphon, "Journey's End" by Decameron, "Saturday Round About Sunday (single version)" by The Humblebums, and "Mona" by Mick Farren. 49 tracks in all!

✨✧ DeviantsDeviants 3 (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire/Music On Vinyl (Netherlands), 1969. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic underground set from the UK scene at the end of the 60s – the final record by The Deviants, who'd later go on to form the core of Pink Fairies – but who sound a lot weirder and wilder here! Part of that difference is lead singer Mick Farren, who also handled the production – which really does a lot with a little, and makes any of the group's guitar-heavy, blues-inspired licks sound stranger in the company of some of the odd effects and unusual vocal styles too. Make no mistake, there's plenty of fantastic guitar on the record – thanks to Paul Rudolph, who's completely searing at most moments – but Farren balances things out nicely with his touches too, on strange-titled songs that include "The Junior Narco Rangers", "Black George Does It With His Tongue", "Death Of A Dream Machine", "Metamorphosis Exploration", "Billy The Monster", and "Rumbling Black Transit Blues".
