White Boy And The Average Rat Band - $14.99


This is a perfect example of the "don't judge a band by their name" rule of record collecting. One would be sorely mistaken to think that this record is lame because of the band name. Not all great bands are blessed with the ability to name their bands appropriately. These guys obviously did not possess that ability, or they just didn't care, which is more likely. Anyhow, this is a quintessential Acid Archives rarity, that's actually worth they outrageous sums original copies go for. Here's the description from the Acid Archives:

"This is stretching the limits of the Archives here -- it's an 80s album and sounds much closer to the kind of post-punk hard rock that got college airplay in the late 80s than it does like anything else reviewed on this website. That said, it's speedy not-quite-metal hard rock with a pulverizing distortion sound (to call it "fuzz guitar" is to understate it by a mile). One song is acoustic, but mostly this is just an in-your-face blitzkrieg, and it's really great. [AM]

That's right, this White Boy and The Average Rat Band LP is an in-your-face proto-metal blitzkrieg from Baltimore, 1979 and it'll totally appeal to fans of the greatness of groups like Sabbath and Motorhead. It'll also appeal to fans of the production style of the original KBD records, but it's more metal than any of that stuff which is ironic considering Killed By Death is a Motorhead song. Weird. Highly recommended and to be considered for reissue of the year as well.

Bad Axe - $21.99

BAD AXE! “With Dana Strum on bass, Stacy Moreland on vocals, Dave Carruth on guitar and Steve Ward on drums, these guys were far from the glam metal that would be visited by Slaughter in the '80's. This recording sees the BAD AXE sound as the raw product of guys who obviously cut their teeth on real rawk meat like Purple, Rush & the Sabs. The nasty riffing here is the kinda primordeal metal that any fan of truly heavy stuff would dig and yet, there's something quite beyond that. Just listen to the diversity of songs ike "Cities of Rage" & "Stray." Clearly the work of a band with more than a little originality & even a hint of progression makes this stand out. Then add in numbers like "Vacation," "Blues L.A." and "Foggy Morning." Special kudos go to axeman Carruth on these, as within their grooves, he steps in circles with players on the level of a Steve Hackett in the more prog-moments or even a Stevie Ray in the bluesy sections. Yeah, man,
this BAD AXE thing is far more than a typical hard rock album & warrants anyone's attention who likes something that kicks it and is still quite unique. I've been told there were a few originals of this way back, but apparently they
are so rare as to be classified impossible. So thanks to Heximon, this gem has been made available on a limited basis & my only advice is to grab it now!”

Check out some of the stellar reviews Brown Acid the Sixth Trip have been acquiring:

"...they’ve unearthed some unheard gems that are the equal to the big ticket likes of Sabbath, The Stooges and Hawkwind."
Paste Magazine

"Last month, we ran a feature on our forty favourite genre compilation albums of all time. Among stiff competition from the likes of Soul Jazz, Awesome Tapes From Africa and more, The Brown Acid series still stands out as one of the best."

"These collections bring together some of the best obscure heavy music of that time period. It was a time when the dream of the sixties was dying, giving way to something darker and heavier. The Brown Acid series does for this type of music, what Nuggets and Pebbles did for sixties garage rock. (In fact, Nuggets curator and Patti Smith guitarist, Lenny Kaye, is a fan of these albums. That should tell you something.)"
