More NWOBHM and a Zappa post
Yeah, it looks like the pic sleeve to a punk 7" but the grooves contain a great bunch of hard rock to "Rock Hard" too. The A side, Rock Hard is fun with a goofy synth line over it, but the b side, Batteries Not Included is pure progish hard rock.
Here's Wolf's 1981 7" Head Contact. Great NWOBHM done German style.
Very classy stuff.
Sounding a bit to my ears like early (i.e:when they were good) Def Leppard here is Black Rose's Nightmare EP. Four songs, nary a turd amongst.
This is one homely cover though.
And since Kit posted the Overkill Hell's Getting Hotter, I thought I would add contrast by posting yet another Overkill (the UK NWOBHM band this time, not the NY thrashers) with their 2 song demo. Very nice hard rock. These guys shoulda been a contender.
And finally as a request, a long time LOA visitor requested some Frank Zappa. Since I haven't done any ripping of live shows in quite a while, I grabbed an oddity even by Zappa standards. This is a short recording of FZ at Mount St. Mary's college in 1963 doing some avant pieces inspired no doubt by Cage.
I have some later stuff dug out and ready to rip to look for more FZ in the near future.
Hope ya'll enjoy.
