GIZMOS, THE - 1975-1977: Demos & Rehearsals
Hot on the heels of The Gizmos 1976/1977: The Studio Recordings, Gulcher Records presents a new Gizmos double CD of demos and rehearsals. The Gizmos story of early American punk is re-told with 54 previously unreleased tracks and a 20-page booklet. Included are Ken Highlands1975 demos that started the whole thing; Ken and Eddie Flowers, as the Rockabilly Yobs, accidentally discovering swamp-trash-punk; Rich\r\nCoffees stoner-rock band Cerberus joining Ken for the first Gizmos rehearsal; Maryland Marine-era song demos by Ken; and Ted Niemiecs demos for the 1977 Gizmos sessions. There are versions of Gizmos faves like Mean Screen," "Chicken Queen," "Thats Cool," "Muff Divin," "Pumpin to Playboy," "Cave Woman," "Human Garbage Disposal," "Amerika First," "Kiss of the Rat," "Gizmos World Tour," and "Hey Beat Mon!" And\r\nsix songs that Ken recorded with the Afrika Korps in 1977-78, including "Jailbait Janet," "Too Cool to Fool," and "Nobodys Girl." Plus many unheard and even unremembered tunes! How could the classic Giz-rock of "Talkin on the Telephone" and "Seaside Boogie With a Jack-Off Solo" have remained unreleased for all these years?! The 20-page booklet is packed with riff-by-riff details from Krazee Ken, with commentary and clarification by Ready Eddie. Plus lots of unpublished photos, including the many photo-booth faces of Krazee Ken." - Gulcher.
