Scandinavian Wanker CD EP

It´s so good that people like Arne Thelin (Kwyet Kings, Lust-O-Rama,
Bittersweets, Cosmic Dropouts....) still is out there to kick up some dirt.
Noone should feel safe - least of all the norwegian music scene. Check the review in the review-section.




The Bowery Electric EP

This is a must-have for every Ramones fan! For the very first and only time, Tommy, Marky and Cj Ramone rocks out together to celebrate their former lead singer, Joey Ramone. It´s a beautiful track written by Jed Davis in 2001, who also sings lead vocals on it. "New York City is a little less warm tonight..." It´s the kind of tune that won´t let go and you don´t want it gone either. You still fuckin´ remember!
Other bands include the fantastic Suzy & Los Quattro, The Kowalskis, Goin´ Places, Mensch and Cj´s band, Bad Chopper. 

No Tomorrow Records



Nikki Sudden & The Last Bandits
Treasure Island, CD

The very, very long awaited new solo-record from Nikki Sudden has finally hit the streets of Trondheim. Ten copies available, but most likely they will sell out pretty fast. And then I´ll get more in store!
Featuring among others Mick Taylor (Rolling Stones), Ian McLagan (The Faces), Dave Kusworth (Jacobites-partner, Tenderhooks and Bounty Hunters), Darrel Bath (Ian Hunter, Crybabys) Anthony Thistletwaite (Waterboys). Check Nikkis website for lots of more info and history behind this rock´n roll classic.


Tip Toppers
Subterranean Jungle, CD

The ultimate take on Ramones´ classic album from 1983,
to all you darlings from the amazing Tip Toppers! This is a whole new story for these great tracks from what some might say is a "lost" Ramones record. I think it´s a killer and so much more than the live-favourite "Psycho therapy". With the Tip Toppers twist on it and Sindre Matre´s excellent vocals you´re in for a joyful ride. Take the A-train and get this one while you can! Released by the norwegian Ramones Fan Club limited to 500.

Tunes from the trashcan, 7" single
Peggy Sue is dead b/w Electric vampires. EAST 020

Two songs from the cd-ep with the same title. Only on black vinyl, and in limited edition of 500! It also comes with a puzzle!! The band is almost sold out, and I was lucky enough to get hold of ten copies. Be quick or be dead!




Sparkling Bombs
Dead dreams from the silver gutter, CD
Coexistence Obscure records/Zone 51 CXO 005

The long awaited debut-album by France´s finest rock´n roll outfit. And what a follow-up to their fantastic ep from 2001, "From bubblegum fun to glittered depression". Enhanced cd with two live videos for your computer.  A review is up in the reviews-section.




Sleazegrinder t-shirt

Very cool and rockin´ t-shirt, with "Super Rock Revolution Now!" on the back.
Only got a couple of them in stock, but check out the Sleazegrinder web-site for more goodies, and to see how nice this tee looks on girls.








Trashcan Darlings t-shirt

Tour t-shirt from the legendary "Return to violence tour-2001".
Already a classic item with the small logo on the breast.
Only size small.

Action Pilots/Motown Torpedoes
split 10" vinyl.
Nosebleeder Records

This fine LP has always been in stock here at the rock´n roll HQ, but because of pure stupidity, it has never been shown here in the shop. We still got some copies left, so don´t miss out on Trondheim´s pride and glory that the Action Pilots represents. You won´t find a better rock-band from this town, and one of the best that Norway´s got to offer. Three tracks by each band.
Action Pilots (e-mail)



An evening at Muddy Waters, CD

Here´s the legendary energy from a Jetsurfers live-set, captured during a show at Oslo´s Muddy Waters pub. See the review-section for what I think of it, but as it may come as no surprise, I´m a huge fan of this cd!





Wildcards CD
Grammofon A/S Electra 00350

Fantastic follow-up to Jetlagged in Jetland. Another Dylan song, " Mama, you been on my mind" and not one single low-point. But then again, I can´t think of any regarding the Jetsurfers. I dig it all, baby! They´ll never let you down either.





Jetlagged in Jetland CD
Grammofon A/S Electra 00197

Jetsurfers first album, including the hit, "´Til She Finds Me", a great cover-version of Bob Dylan´s "One Too Many Mornings", the Bjørn Nilsen/Chris Doll co-written boogie-monster "Where´s My Medicine" and seven more honky-tonk songs. Don´t mind the promo-sticker, that´s only on my copy. 




Perfectly Stoned
A norwegian tribute to the Rolling Stones CD, Merry Records MRCD9510

You simply don´t need any other Stones-tributes than this one! Casino Steel´s version of Casino Boogie is alone worth the price, other acts included: Big Hand, Playmates, Merry Go Round, Ziggy and the Rhythm Bulldogs, Midnight Ramblers, Mads Eriksen´s Exile and the super-group Charles Watts International (feat. Stein Ramberg, Jørn Lande, Casino Steel, H.P. Baarli, Bjørn Nilsen, Pål Kristensen, Thomas Aron Hansen and Øistein Rudjord). And lots of great photos inside.




Trashcan Darlings
You lucky bastard!!!
Criminal Porn b/w Psychotic Barbie 7", TrashFan Records

These two songs are only released on the out of print "You lucky bastard" promo-cd. This 7" single is a bootleg, made by a mysterious man, but the band think it´s a funny idea. "Psychotic barbie" is an early live-recording from Germany.
Limited to 315! Dark blue or white see-through vinyl.
TrashFan Records
Reeperbahn 36, 20002 Hamburg


Union Carbide Productions Tribute 7"
The Sonic Barrels vs The Celophane Flower
Golden Shower of Hits Records 001, 50NOK/6euro/7$

One song each by these swedish bands, The Sonic Barrels doing a hard rocking version of "Ring my bell", and The Celophane Flower does a nice country-influenced twist on the classic "Golden Age". Limited to 500.             
Golden Shower of Hits Records




The Basement Brats
Shining Down 7", Sneak 2, 40NOK

3 song EP by this wonderful punkrock combo, hailing fromHalden, Norway. An amazing mix of the Ramones and the Devil Dogs. The titlesong is really outstanding. If you can´t move to this one, you must be fucking paralyzed!





The Basement Brats 
I Hate It 7", Sneak 6, 40NOK

Wow! What a great single! One of the all time faves on our turntable. Sadly, it was the last to be recorded by the band.R.I.P. Brats!







The Hellacopters/The Powdermonkeys
Check This Action 7", Butcher´s Hook rec, 50NOK

We´re lucky to have some copies of this rare single, thanx to
Kjelli (legendary Motorpsycho merchandise-salesman). It´s on
red vinyl and not too many were pressed. So hurry up!
The ´Copters covering Arthur Lee & Love´s "A House Is Not a
Motel" with Matthias Hellberg doing the guitar-duties here. Aussies The Powdermonkeys covering Dead Moon´s
"Destination X", and getting away with it pretty damn fine too.




The Scarecrows
4 track CDEP, SCACD001, 25NOK

This is Sweden! Not the norwegian band.
Still haven´t met someone who don´t dig this record. If Trashcan Darlings, Ramones, Backyard Babies, Hanoi Rocks, Wildhearts and just plain sleaze is your deal, hurry up! Not too many are available.
I´m sleeping with this at night, and if the girl don´t like it, just kick her out.  




The Tennesse Beats
7" single, Stiff Little Records, 40NOK

Great single from this Oslo band. The A-side is a damn good rocker, somewhere between the Sewergrooves and the Hellacopters, but with a nice touch of fine 70´s hard rock originals.
These guys know their records!
The B-side is a cover of the Hitmen´s "Tell Tale Heart". Not as good as the A-side, but then again I´m not familiar with the original
Sup hårt and be ready for The Beats!





The Carburetors
Fast Forward Rock´n Roll CDEP, 50NOK

This is Rock´n Roll!! Two fast rocking originals and one hell of a cover of Kiss´ "Getaway". Worth every goddamn penny, and sure as hell is a hot place, this disc will occupy your stereo for a long, long time. Perfect for parties!

Sold out!





The Graves
Amazing Graves CDEP, BDRCD022, 50NOK

Norways only garageband. Thats what they say anyway. And I don´t think we need anybody else. It´s like when you´re  with that special girl, and don´t want to be around other people. This you want for yourself, and only share on parties.
All hail the amazing Graves!





The Marsmen
6 song 7" EP, Sneak 7, 40NOK

More great Ramones-punk from Halden. And with a helping handfrom the Brats, you can´t go wrong. "Fighting In The Streets"is alone worth the price.






The Nuggets
Powerpop Girl
 7" EP, Sneak 8, 40NOK

The title says alot what the Nuggets are about. Two Brat-guys moving into a bit more 60´s pop world, anddoing it real fine too! We love this EP, but they are even better on the fullenght "Crystalline creations......and pop sensations" released by Sreaming Apple records.Another LP is in the making, or maybe it might be out already.




The Tip Toppers 
4 song 7" EP, Sneak 11, 40NOK

Sneakers records will never let you down! Here is yet another proof. The Tip Toppers includes members from theYum Yums & Gluecifer, and with head honcho Sindre Matre at the wheel, this EP turns into a killer! Melodic punkrock,powerpop, powerpunk or whatever they call it, you won´t miss out on this band.





Trashcan Darlings/Silver
a tribute to Hanoi Rocks
7" single, Strangedolls Records 0101/Christiania Rock Records 008, 40NOK

A fantastic tribute to one of the best bands ever, by two amazing bands. What more can you possibly want? 
Trashcan Darlings does a fueled up version of Tragedy, that will stay for days in your head. As if it wasn´t already good enough, this joins the punkrock classics. Malibu Beach Nightmare is  Silvers excellent choice. And Mike & Andy should be proud as a horny rooster. Get it while you can, not many left now. 



Trashcan Darlings
Episode 1: The Lipstick Menace

12" black vinyl (first 777 w/bonus 7") East Side Records, 150NOK

The best punkrock-record ever released! Here you got it all:
Ramones, Sex Pistols, Motörhead, Hanoi Rocks &  New York Dolls.
This will probably stand out like the "Apocalypse Dudes" did, and still does, but here you got more glam, more sleaze and even much more make-up. Already a punkrock classic!
