DOODS THIS IS MY FAVORITE ANARCHO PUNK SKA FROM WHEN I WAS A KID. THIS MUSIC STILL HOLDS UP AND IS AWESOME!! DICK FROM SUBHUMANS BAND BEFORE CITIZEN FISH AND HIS BEST WORK IMO. THIS IS EVERYTHING THEY RELEASED!!!!
Culture Shock was an anarcho-punk / ska punk band formed in Warminster, Wiltshire, UK, in 1986 by Dick Lucas, previously of the Subhumans. Over their three year history the band played hundreds of gigs, including frequent appearances at free festivals, and released three studio albums on the Bluurg label. Dick's lyrics were mostly concerned with social and political issues, from cruelty to animals, Northern Ireland, war, and social alienation, but were far from angry rants, often finding a positive and empowering perspective. Culture Shock split in 1989, as Bill and Nige both had young families to support. Dick went on to form Citizen Fish with Jasper, the bassist for Culture Shock's final album, and two other former members of the Subhumans. Nige died in 1993.

WAU! MY BOYS PIERO UMILIANI (SUPER HIP FILM COMPOSER) AND ALESSANDRO ALESSANDRONI (SUPER KICK ASS GUITAR PLAYER AND WHISTLER ON THE MORRICONE STUFF) MAKING FREAK OUT FUZZ ROCK. THE FIRST SONG IS MISLEADING SO DON'T BE MISLEAD!
The Braen's Machine is a mysterious study group, whose albums issued by Liuto label (Piero Umiliani's property) are the most wanted and change hands for a considerable amount of money ("Underground"'s price is about 1500 dollars on 3rd Coast Sound Distortion Catalog for example).
Exploito psych monster rarity. Recorded by Piero Umiliani at the now legendary SOUND-WORK-SHOP studio in January 1971. Released in a very limited (less than 100) number of copies.
The original vinyl is practically impossible to find out.
Acid drenched fuzz guitar with one funky rhythm section. The drum sound its pretty interesting.
The style is not far from other ghost-groups of the same period, an instrumental music that could be used as a movie soundtrack, with fuzz guitar and keyboards in predominance, and probably more psych-oriented than others. It's sure under Braen's Machine's name Piero Umiliani and Alessandro Alessandroni are hidden, as they appeared with their nicknames Braen and Gisteri as the album tracks composers. The name Braen also appears as a composer in the two singles by The Pawnshop.
A major surprise this one, as it seemed all the great 1970's Italian prog albums are already known. Take one part instrumental film/library/exploito ala Blue Phantom, The Bigroup and Ugly Custard and complete that with atmospheres that rival the earliest Krautrock scene ala early Guru Guru circa "UFO". Absolutely phenomenal fuzz guitar throughout, with loads of studio effects, to give it a completely underground feel indeed. Quite a bit of high quality drumming can be found here as well. First track of nine is a bit of a let down, having an almost 60’s “Batman” feel to it, giving off an aura of an exploitation album, but it greatly improves from there.

FUCKING A, DOOODS!!! WHATS BETTER THAN CHARLES BRONSON KICKING ASS WITH CRAZY JIMMY PAGE MUSIC? SHEESH!!
Death Wish II is a soundtrack album by Jimmy Page, released by Swan Song Records on February 15, 1982 to accompany the film Death Wish II. Following the XYZ project, Page was asked by his Berkshire neighbour, movie director Michael Winner, to record a soundtrack for the film Death Wish II in late August 1981. Death Wish II starred Charles Bronson, and was set around Chicago, which inspired Page to write a blues flavour soundtrack. Page was given a deadline of a few weeks to write and record the album at his home studio The Sol, and travelled on location to Los Angeles with Winner for songwriting themes. The soundtrack features Dave Mattacks from Fairport Convention, former Pretty Things keyboards player Gordon Edwards, and veteran singer Chris Farlowe. Page uses a Roland guitar synthesizer on a number of tracks. Tracks from this album were later reused by Winner for Death Wish III. Page was later asked to compose the soundtrack for Scream for Help (1985), but suggested John Paul Jones to Winner instead.

OH YEAH, BITCH!!! BABE RUTH KICKS ASS AND THEIR SINGER WAS A TOTAL BABE:
CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO OF "THE MEXICAN"!!!
THE MEXICAN RULES BUT ITS NOT ON HERE. THE OTHER SONGS TOTALLY RULE TOO THOUGH!!
FOR FANS OF: ROCKIN, KICK ASS SHIT!
CD of a live recording from the BBC, 1975. Program called "The Archive Session" introduced by Alan "Fluff" Freeman.
FUCK YEAH, BUDDY! THIS SHIT KICKS ASS. FIRST SONG TOTALLY ROCKS. THE REST IS GOOD TOO.
OH YEAH, FOOLS! HARRY NILSSON POPEYE DEMOS AINT NO JOKE!!!
For Robert Altman's 1980 film Popeye, he recruited Harry Nilsson to do the songs and Van Dyke Parks to do the film score. The songs were sung in the film by the characters, a la any musical, but the original demos of Harry singing them still exist.
Apparently Harry was not the clear cut choice to do the songs according to Altman, "Nobody wanted him at first except Robin Williams. Everyone said 'You'll get in trouble with him -- he'll get drunk; he won't do it; he's all washed up.' As a matter of fact I said all of those things about Harry to Robin myself one day. Then I went home and thought about it and said to myself, 'Jesus, that's what some people are saying about me!' So I called Harry Nilsson, because I had never met him in my life, and we got along terrifically."
