SLEEVE NOTES / INFORMATION:
This compilation was put together by the staff at rough trade shops.

rough trade shops rock and roll 1, the third in the ongoing series of compilations with mute, features a vast selection of rare, obscure and classic tracks carefully chosen and compiled by the staff at the rough trade shops in london. like the two previous albums in the series, electronic 01 and the box set 25 years of rough trade shops, the album doesn’t calim to be a ‘genre defining’ greatest hits package, rock and roll is far too important to encapsulate on two cd’s, what we have tried to do here is bring together a bunch of records that capture the true spirit of rock and roll and have excited and indeed ‘rocked’ customers and staff alike over the last 25 years”

“Trying to put into words the exhilaration and excitment you feel when hearing a track like Iggy’s ‘I Got A Right’ is not an easy thing. It’s primitive rawness is overwhelmiing, it can leave you either ranting uncontrollably or speechless, but it’s stuck in your head and under your skin.

For a good few hours after, nothing else matters. Listening to this compilation I hope you get that feeling 46 times over.

Each one of the tracks included here has the ability to lift you out of your seat, to give you that rush of energy that only great rock and roll supplies. There’s an uncompromising edginess to a lot of this music too, the jazz/rock freakout of The Birthday Party’s ‘Big Jesus Trashcan’ and the claustrophobic monotones of Suicide’s ‘Rocket USA’ still sounds uncomfortably scary.

This collection has been intentionally laid out to run like a mix tape, old sit’s next to new, multi-track production nect to bootleg cassette quality. Hearing The Modern Lover’s ‘She Cracked’ demo from ’72 followed by The Von Bondies’ awesome ‘It Came From Japan’ from last year, demonstrates how little bearing ‘time’ and ‘production values’ have on music like this.

And yes, I know there are countless great bands missing from this collection: The Sonics, God, Black Flag, 13th Floor Elevators, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Monks etc. I’m sure everyone would love to hear something off Jerry Lee’s amazing ‘Live At The Star Club’ LP, but hey, you can’t have everything can you? Remember this collection is Rock And Roll 1!

Just to let you know for a record to stake a claim for ‘authentic rock and rollness’, at least half of the tracks must contain guitar solos. It’s over 70% on this baby.

And the last track sounds like ‘Silver Machine’ – Just with added wind…
MICK PETTS”

“First of all let me say how honored I am to be featured (not once! not twice! but THREE times!) on this here record. It is indeed an honor, not only to be in such good company, but also to give you this message. To give you THE WORD.

I have been asked to write about what we call ROCK AN ROLL. When they come and asked me to do this (and when I say ‘they’ I mean the WHITE CORPORATE MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, and don’t give me no looks cos Rough Trade has MILLIONS invested in weapons technologies and if you were thinking that they were NOT part of the problem then you ARE), they sent me a copy of the track listing, which I promptly threw out/lost. Then I put-off and procrastinated and kept them waiting for so long that everyone became real nervous, and all sorts of threats were made, and embarrassing things were said and so on. Now some people might cite my cavalier attitude towards work and responsibility as an example of “rock and roll”, or so-called “rock and roll” attitude. NONSENSE! And this is a sorry thing in our world today: the fact that people equate delinquency, or drugs, or poor manners, or bad haircuts, or leather jackets with “rock n roll”, and it just ain’t true. ROCK AN ROLL is about strageness and humor and sexuality and aggression and spirituality. It feels GOOD. It offers a release. Cos sometimes when all you have is NOTHING, all you can do is play songs like these. LOUD (…’78 Chevy Van …Car stereo up full… Screeching treble… Cheater Slicks!) Really fuckin loud. I can’t tell you how much I loved so many of these songs, how important they were to me. I played them over and over. And sometimes, they made me feel alive. In some way, a little bit. And that’s the attraction: My world was dead, I was dead. I wanted life. Rock an Roll showed me a way to live! FREEDOM! (Thank you Monsieur Jeffrey Evans.)

Now this music was hidden. These songs and these bands were not and are not the stuff of the MAINSTREAM. You had to dig deep to find these diamonds. (At least I did.) Or you had to have a connection: a friend to turn you on. And in a way, that made it all the more special. That it was like a special language or code. A shared SECRET, passed along, from friend to friend. And for me, nothing feels finer than getting a new favourite song (or band) from a friend.

So now let me do YOU a favor, friend. Here are your new favourite songs. Your new lease on life. Your salvation. And you can thank me later. AMEN.
