The Stillettos were born out of the back room of Max’s Kansas City in the late sixties when, if you could get into the back room, you would be in the company of Andy Warhol and His Superstars, up and coming actors Al Pacino, Sly Stallone and Robert DeNiro, graced by the presence of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin , The Stones and even an occasional night with Dali or Fellini holding court at the round table. Before the Sixties waned artists and freaks clawed their way to be in Warhol movies and some found themselves in Bizarre plays of Jackie Curtis appearing at La Mama Theater which turned out to be the seeds that grew the New York Punk scene. [read] Jackie’s “Femme Fatale or the Three faces of Gloria” brought together Jayne County, Patti Smith, Penny Arcade, The Winbrandt Brothers and Elda Stilletto, to act as the music scene began to explode with the Glitter and Glam of The New York Dolls, Eric Emerson and the Magic Tramps and KISS. In 1971 Elda formed Holly Woodlawn’s Pure Garbage - she sold her Andy Warhol cow to get a loft to live and rehearse in. She brought the show to the stage of New York’s top cabaret club Reno Sweeney’s, In 1973 bent on having a rock band, Elda left Holly to pursue the cabaret she was meant to do and recruited a Max’s Kansas City waitress who said she could sing, Debbie Harry. The Stillettos were one of CBGB’s first premiere acts billed with Television, The Ramones and Patti Smith. The fifteen year career of the Stillettos became a revolving door of some of New York’s most talented musicians: with Elda at the helm. And at any time you could find Sylvain Sylvain, Johnny Thunders, Lenny Kaye, Robert Fripp, Genya Raven, or Rick Danko sitting in for a song. On this album your ears will be candied with the sounds of Cheetah Chrome (Guitarist for the Dead Boys), Walter Lure, Billy Rath, (both of JT’s Heartbreakers) Tish and Snooky, (The Sick F**ks) Rick Derringer, Leon Neon and many others who believed in the talent and writing Elda Stilletto brought to the New York Scene.

With singer Hannes the first line-up was complete. After the HEINZ NITTEL assassination (city councilor of the social democratic party in Austria who was murdered by palestine group ABU NIDAL on the first of may on his way to town hall) the band name was an obvious choice - DEAD NITTELS (following our musical heroes the DEAD KENNEDYS). The space in the Wiener Gassergasse (referred to as GAGA) offered by the autonomous youth centre was used as a rehearsal room. GAGA soon would become the nucleus of [read] viennes punk. A lot of legendary DEAD NITTELS concerts took place in that time. Their first concert however was a gig as a supporting act for the female punk band A-Gen53. after several reshuffles considering the position of the singer, Christian Koczera, nicknamed Hulk, took over. With him a second guitarist in the person of Michael Neumann, joined the band. In this line-up the DEAD NITTELS recorded the so- called green Kassette AntiNewWaveLiga. CRUDE AND STRONG EURO PUNK!!!

Brat, Rick Rivets, actually quit The Dolls to form The Brats. The Brats would become the biggest draw in NYC from 1972 to 1981 and every band [read] hoped to open for them for the exposure. Just ask any one of the members of KISS or The Ramones (“Beat on The Brat!”) or any other NYC band for that matter, The Brats were a big influence on them and the whole NYC music scene of the Seventies. Their story begins one night while hanging out with Alice Cooper downstairs at Max's, Keith West and the boys were giving the waitress a hard time. Alice leaned over and said “You guys are a bunch of Brats” and they took him literally. Early on, The Brats rehearsed in a loft on Bleecker Street, where they would stage their infamous loft parties, often with an then unsigned band, KISS, as their opening act. They headlined all over the New York City area with other up and coming bands like Blondie, The Ramones, Television, Talking Heads and The Heartbreakers. They would often be featured in Rock Scene Magazine, which gave them international exposure and helped to sell out shows at places like Max’s, CBGB’s, Gildersleeves, and The Ritz.

Hailing from the ashes of Phoenix legends of THE RED SQUARES, after their disbanding in the winter of 1983, Sonic Mike Stephens (lead vocals and guitar) and the other guitarist and keyboard player Roger Lee Chavous decided to start another band. They met bass player Walter Charchuck, and than started kicking around a crazy idea of combing Country with Synth/Punk material using a shitty drum machine. Greg David, the drummer, combined both drum machine and electronic drums. The plan was to dress like a new age cowboys, as all of them were from Arizona. Unlike some of the local Rock groups, NUVO WEST took a decidedly different approach to their style of playing. Art galleries like the Awun House, hosted [read] basement parties with the band that people were taking notice of. Opening for everyone from the Del Fuegos to buddies Rank N File, Nuvo worked their tails off. Enter buddy/studio wiz, Fred North. Using Sonic Mike’s practice studio, Fred set up his TASCAM 4 track and recorded the now sought after “Scary” EP. Included on the record were original songs written by Fred with a very heavy western influence, aka “Apache” and originals written by Sonic and Wally. Debuting the EP at a trendy “Alternative” club in Scottsdale, the band combined fence post props with several TVs playing homemade videos, including violent car crashes and porn. The audience loved it. The EP sold well locally, and the boys went out to tour in a limited fashion. In 1984, the band recorded their biggest album to date, “Twankin”, a word the band loved. Gone “were the keys/synth, and the look turned to jeans, large cowboy hats and nudie shirts. Released on cassette, “Twankin” out sold the previous EP twice over.
Prostitutes were a cult band from Turin (the italian motor city) that released only few tracks on vinyl and some demo tapes. The sound of the band was inspired by Velvet Underground, 70's decadent rock and UK new wave. The band was leaded by Augusto and Bruno Panebarco, now a writer/poetry... deeply into drug abuse. People in "middle" who lived the laceration and existential generational clash of the 80's. So, this is their definitive anthology that contains their best tracks recorded between 1982-84, studio and live stuff. A wonderful picture of the 'dark' side of the golden era of the italian style!

Disillusionment with the "mellow 70's" was turning to rage as the US waged a proxy war in Central America, and San Francisco ignited into fiery riots after the assassination of its mayor and first openly gay city council member. The Saucers reflected these times with caustic humor and impassioned social commentary. In 1980, the band after the departure of first keyboard player, Joey Michaels, renamed themselves The Allies, adding dynamic lead guitarist Craig Magee, formerly with Dyan Diamond (Runaways). With the addition of Magee, the band pivoted from the Saucers' Farfisa-dominated garage punk to a more muscular, guitar-driven sound. Local music producer and KALX engineer Terry Hammer worked behind the scenes to get both bands into the studio, with varied [read] results, on display here. He also recorded a number of live shows for the two groups, and it's mostly thanks to his efforts that this music survives today. After the definitive split of the band, the drummer Jake Smith went on to join hardcore punk band Crucifix, played in an early version of Faith No More. "Pretty Cool. I like the lyrics. I really like that song 'Piggy's Jukebox'. It was tough in those days to stand out and do something different.... had some real power.". HENRY ROLLINS (KCRW FM - L.A.) on "The Saucers/The Allies" vinyl lp - on Rave-Up records.
Guitarists Mike Enright and Byron Stevens met drummer Curt Gary at the University of Cincinnati in the early ‘70s. By 1975 they were jamming together, abusing controlled substances, and listening closely to Lee Perry, Pere Ubu, and the singles coming out of New York and London. A visit to a Bloomington, Indiana, basement to see MX-80 Sound was pivotal, as were debut LPs from The Ramones and The Patti Smith Group. In the winter of 1976, local guerilla art collective We're Just Like You put on a show at the university and needed a band. With the addition of Mike’s high-school friend Bob Cotter on bass and a few weeks of rehearsals, Mike, Curt, and Byron formed Ed Davis, a [read] name chosen because it meant nothing and revealed nothing. The group stayed together after the show and slowly built a following in Cincinnati clubs, eventually playing a series of legendary parties in their downtown loft. In '78 the band cut a single, played on WAIF-FM, opened for The Patti Smith Group at Bogart's, and lost guitarist Byron, who moved to NYC. Ed soldiered on for another year with new vocalist and pianist Fran Slater; bassist Bob switched to guitar; and Mike picked up the bass. Their last show, at the 5th Street loft backed by the Shake It label’s legendary The Customs, was in June of 1979.

In 1975 the band recorded five studio tracks including the amazing ‘Neo City’.
