Killdozer - Intellectuals Are the Shoeshine Boys of the Ruling Elite & The Snakeboy Album (1994)

front cover

Killdozer was formed in 1983 in Madison, Wisconsin by singer-songwriter Michael Gerald and the brothers Bill and Dan Hobson. Within a year they had released their debut album, "Intellectuals Are the Shoeshine Boys of the Ruling Elite". The band split in 1990 but reformed in 1993, losing guitarist Bill Hobson and gaining Paul Zagoras, and continued until they split up in 1996. Killdozer was notable for its slow, grinding song structures and blackly, humorous lyrics. Killdozer is regarded to have set the foundation for the popular grunge music in the early nineties, despite grunge always has linked with Seattle.

The Countdowns - Right on Sound (1998)

front cover
Produced by Tim Kerr, L.A. based trio The Countdowns' debut LP is loud, snotty and rich in attitude; The Right On Sound doesn't break any new ground, but cuts like "Activate-Her," "Wray Gunn" and "Ghettoblaster" are carried over the top by their boundless energy and conviction. Are you looking for a good garage punk'n'roll album, than is 'Right on Sound' something you don't want to miss.

Missmoses - Limbs Divine (2007)

And again another Belgian band, I'm a bit chauvinistic, isn't it ? If you are a fan of (Belgian) bands such as Millionaire, Evil Superstars or Goose, here's a quite unknown five-piece, from Sint-Niklaas, you would might like. Expect some stonerriffage mixed with eclectic electro. Produced by Alex Callier (Hooverphonic). File this under Stoner meets Pop meets Electro.

Fifty Foot Combo - Ghent - Bxl (2004) Re-up

front cover

Garage, surf fuzz, exotica, horror and thunder make the Fifty Foot Combo to be a very infectious experience you'll never forget. It is an undeniably fact that Fifty Foot Combo was one of Belgium's hottest live-acts. Smooth but trashy, wild and exciting but stylish...Sadly, Ghent-BXL was their last album, before they decide to quit. Requested.

Belgian (Ghent) garage band, formed in the early eighties by Luc MG and Paul Brusseel.

Les Thugs - I.A.B.F. (1991)

Here's another opportunity to discover this great melodic-hardcore band from France. Les Thugs are the most underrated band from France, or like Pascal Thunder wrote, they are the history of French rock music! I.A.B.F. is Les Thugs' last record before their short-lived sojourn to the higher-profile Sub Pop label ( initials stand for "International Anti-Boredom Front")
