SLEEVE NOTES:
“Howdy & Welcome

“fresh” new Crypt sampler. This baby catches ya up on alla our modern groups’ releases of Sept 94 to March ’97 crud, pops in a coupla older title replugs, misses out on just-signed punkrock hepsters The Dirties outta Port Huron, MI (debut alb coming in Sept ’97), and gives an update of our fine DISCOgraphy AND North American mailorder aktion (caus a lotta you prob’ly ain’t gon’ find our ENTIRE cat’log o’ boldness in yer local store)… Well, we somehow survived a mighty fucked up 1995, moved our “plush” (har!) USA “office” out to lovely (& low rent!) Caliphoneya (a mucho big tip o’ de hat to Monsieur Larry Hardy of In The Red!!!), where the Brett-meister sho’ be kickin’ ass! If the enclosed direct mailorder lowdown AIN’T enuf, send a stamp for our new (MARCH ’97) souped-to-high-hell 48-page catalog that is stocked to the bone wit’ wild-ass roots raunch of 1950-66 and 1976-NOW prime-ity that’ll set yer ass ablaze with the bold sounds o’ sech essentials as JERRY McCAIN, DMZ, the SONICS, BO (DIDLEY & DUDLEY), LINK, HOWLIN’ (& GUITAR) WOLF, etc etc etc !!! Anyhoo, blast forth with this scorch & dig, daddy, dig! And REMEMBER: CRYPT USA is now at 1409 West Magnolia, Burbank, CA 91506!!! (CRYPT EUROPE is still at P.O. BOX 304292, 20325 Hamburg, Germany)

01. REVELATORS – Serve The Man Gadzooks! Wailin’ thangs off to a rip-roarin’ start be this scorchin’ chunk o’ punkbilly hoot offa these Columbia, MO wildcat 3-some’s awesome “ WE TOLD YOU NOT TO CROSS US..” debut LP/CD which you should run right out & get NOW!!

02. OBLIVIANS – She’s A Hole Eric Oblivian cuts loose wit’ a prime caveman stomp offa their July ’96 “POPULAR FAVORITES” LP/CD, which fer those unhep, happens to be the utter g-damned greatest R&R outburst of quite a long time! Buy it of live a lame life….

03. DM BOB & THE DEFICITS –Two Headed Woman A shapr cover o’ Junior Wells’ ’57 stomper to preview this Hamburg, Germany combo’s upcoming (July ’97) 2nd alb, “BUSH-HOG’N MAN”.

04. BANTAM ROOSTER – Miss Luxury Prime Stooge thievery from this Lansing, MI guiy-drum due’s bran’ new debut LP/CD “DEAL ME IN”; a bold burst of 18 stripped-down chunks o’ bluesy punk wail!

05. DEVIL DOGS – Cheesecake Seein’s how we got some riff coppin’ we might as well follow “Miss Lus” wit’ this similarly “69”d rocker and simultaneously REMIND ye that this fineity is back in print on a 19-cut LP, “BIGGER BEEF BONANZA” and on the newly revitalized “30 SIZZLING SLABS” CD (with 2 EXTRA cuts, makin’ it actually “32 Sizzling Slabs” but whot the fug).

06. LOS ASS-DRAGGERS – College Rock Shit Eeyow! Super hi-speed amphetamine poonkrawk wail from this 4-piece destructo combo outta Oviedo, Spain! From their 21-cut debut LP/CD “ABBEY ROADKILL”

07. FAYETTE COUNTY HOOKERS – Satan’s Highway Oh gawrsh! I hear it already “What is with Crypt & this fuggin’ heavy metal shit???!!?” and then ya sit around jerkin’ off in the dark ‘bout yer “gearheads” & THEN cream all over such lame-ass cute-as-indie-rock fluff like the 1-4-5’s…. THIS is the sound offa revved-beyond control muscle car wjeeled by a pill-poppin’ gearhead piece o’ white trash runnin’ over YER lame ass! Expect these Lexington, KY badasses’ debut LP/CD “SATAN’S HIGHWAY” around August ’97

08. NINE POUND HAMMER – Steam Roller Oh, dear… more “metal” scree to bum out the lo-fi crowd… Listen up you newly “punk”-hep lo-fi & ’77 xerox cats: The Stooges, Dolls & Plenty o’ prime poonk wail sech as “Solitary Confinement”, “White Minority”, etc. prob’ly qualify in yer books as “Metal” and that’s YOUR loss. Balls & power don’t quite equate HM. From their 3rd & final alb “HAYSEED TIMEBOMB”.

09. NEW BOMB TURKS – Fingernail Chomp Majorly ass-whup tune ‘bout caffeineated nerve psychosis from the 2nd alb of these Columbus wailin’ wonders “INFO HIGHWAY REVISITIED” LP/CD of November 1994.

10. LAZY COWGIRLS – Time & Money A swangin’ tune ‘bout the 2 unfortunate essentials o’ life from their muchly bold “RAGGED SOUL” LP/CD of Sept 95.

11. THE GORIES – Ghostrider Sharpshit Suicide cover (sorry, garage purists!) off their 2nd alb, “I KNOW YOU FINE”. Find yer post-Gories fix with Mick’s slew o’ ace combos (Blacktop, King Sound Qt, Dirt Bombs, etc) & Danny’s Demo Doll Rods.

12. .OBLIVIANS – Feel All Right The Oblivs cut loose wit a spiritual number from their Jan ’97 session wit’ keyboard whiz Mr Quintron. Tyhis & 8 mo’ unbeleivably great tunes out soon as the “PLAY 9 SONGS WITH MY QUINTRON” LP/CD, out May ’97.

13. RAUNCH HANDS – Everybody Loves Yo Mama The finest of fine & a rare example of a tune on Crypt runnin’ the usually-prog length o’ 6:30! From their supremely ace 1990 “HAVE A SWIG” LP or on the CD of “FUCK ME STUPID”.

14. DM BOB & THE DEFICITS – Cow Power Ace tune praisin’ the joys o’ red meat from their “BAD w/WIMEN” LP/CD

15. THE WYLD – Goin’ Places A blatant plug fer out mucho fine series o’ snot-caked ORIGINAL mid-60s punkrock, “BACK FROM THE GRAVE”, which I’d recommend you blow the $69 to purchase all 8 vol’s of & getting’ 132 lessions in cool instead o’ plonkin’ that $69 down onna slew o’ 19 “noveau garage” 7”s.. This UNISSUED ’66 stomp from Grace 4 alums outta South Carolina is from the bold-as-hell 1996 comeback monstrosity GRAVE VOLUME 8.

16. COUNTRY TEASERS – Black Change OK OK! Start whinin & baggin’ on Crypt RIGHT NOW!! Yes! Crypt’s most hated band – hated by the punkrockers & “garage” folks, it’s the COUNTRY TEASERS! And to add fuel to the “Crypt’s gone arty” fire, this Teasers’ cut features a rather blatant riff-copping o’ friggin’ Zep’s “Cashmir”!! (izzat spelled right? Heck, I wouldn’t know – I’ve hated Zep fer more fuggin’ years than you newly hep garage kids loved the Smiths or Husker Douche afore yer arrival on the “garage scene”….)

17. CHEATER SLICKS – Hook Or Crook Ace cover of a tune from Alex Chilton’s “Like Flies” alb from these recently-transported to Columbus, Ohio Bostonians.Look fer a cool comp of unissued & rare Slick-age on Crypt in Summer ’97.

18. CHROME CRANKS – Shine It On Stooge-ism supreme from this NYC crew’s “DEAD COOL” LP/CD.

19. THE BEGUILED – I Walk Alone A tip o’ the hat & saludos ro out sadly departed hero & pal Mike Ball of the mighty Beguiled! From their masterpiece “BLUE DIRGE”, which you either own or a complete dork.

20. COUNTRY TEASERS – Mosquito More “art rock” from these bent lads, this time from their debut 10”/CD. Alrighty… Enuf whinin’ awready! Tracks 16 to 20 have prob’ly bummed enuf of ye out, so without further ado we’ll get back to the straight-ahead full-on R&R stuff, and how better than with….

21. TEENGENERATE – Right Now An utterly GENIUS rewrite of the Real Kids’ “Better Be Good” from these too-short-live Tokyo greats’ “GET ACTION” LP/CD which you are lame without!

22. THE REVELATORS – Earthshaker, Yeah! Yet annuda scintillatin’ slab o’ the mighty R&R outburst to be had upon purchasing their awesome debut alb! Look for these cats to tear up YOUR town in Summer-Fall 1997!

23. THE NEW BOMB TURKS – Summer Romance Just HOW in heck these cats pulled off such an utter ROAR is bound to be a subject matter fer historians of the future, but methinks the most head-scratchin’s gon be over THIS scorching cover o’ a tune offa possibly the LAMEST Stones alb of all, “Emotional Rescue”. This & plenty mo’ fineity can be found on their “PISSING OUT THE POISON” singles/rarities comp.

24. LOS ASS-DRAGGERS – Shitty Instro I’d hafta say the MOST-abused nouveau “movement” at this point’d hafta be the surf geeks. Well, here’s an instro to ingratiate Crypt amongst the big spendin’ surf twerps….har…

25. LOS PRIMOS – On My Floor The Fab Andy G’s post-D Dogs combo’s greasey-assed debut 7”.

26. MIGHTY CAESARS – Got To Get You Outside My Head Bold stab at Amurika by Monsier Childish from the LP “English Punk Rock Explosion” of the “Surely They Were” CD.

27. BANTAM ROOSTER – Shit Town Another bold tune from their debut alb! Tom & Eric are gonna be touring the heck outta the USA in Summer & Fall 1997 so get offa yer ass & go SEE ‘EM!!

28. PAGANS – Dead End America A reminder plug fer our mighty sharp Pagans CD! Look for a new DOUBLE-LP vinyl of “Everybody Hates You” with 5 unissued 1979 beasties as BONUSES out in late ’97!

29. OBLIVIANS – Viet Nam War Blues Mighty bold Lightnin’ Hopkins cover from their “SOUL FOOD” LP/CD!

30. LYRES – Let’s Talk About Girls It took 3 g-damn years (WHY? Hell I dunno!) to get our long-promised LYRES CD out but here’sa fine tune from it recorded a cold nite in January 1979 at their 2nd gig ever, where Mono proves his utter genius at cover tune reworking!

31. LAZY COWGIRLS – I’ll Tell You Why Sharp-shit remix of the b-side from their new Sympathy limited-edtion “Route 66” shaped picturedisc 7”. Look for the spiffy new Cowgirls LP/CD, “A LITTLE SEX & DEATH”, out on Crypt in August 1997.
