A pair of stunning early albums from The Troggs – back to back on a single CD! First up Is From Nowhere – raw rock genius from The Troggs – their debut album, in fact – a set that begins with the pivotal, pummeling "Wild Thing" – and follows with loads of killer tracks that should have been just as huge! That brittle, shrapnel-inflected guitar tone and lumbering bass groove will sound fantastic until the end of time – and as happy as Iggy Pop is to tell anyone who'll listen how important this stuff was to the early Stooges ouvre, there's ample first hand evidence here – especially in the too cool to care vocals! Titles include "Ride Your Pony", "The Kitty Cat Song", "Evil", "Jaguar And Thunderbird", "Jingle Jangle", "Our Love Will Still Be There", and "Wild Thing". Trogglodynamite is an especially fantastic set – a record that's got all this raw, rauchy, almost nasty power – proto-punk garagey rock at its best, but also very much its own animal too! The drums are jagged, the guitar lines sharp as glass, and the vocals have a sneering charm that makes even the most simple lyrical turn sound even better than it might otherwise. Titles include "Little Queenie, "Meet Jacqueline", "Oh No", "Last Summer", "It's Over", "Cousin Jane", "Let Me Tell You Babe", and "I Want You To Come Into My Life".
