Eddie and the Hot Rods - Teenage Depression

A banda Eddie and the Hot Rods foi formada na cidade de Essex, Inglaterra, no ano de 1975 e começou tocando covers de bandas de blues. A primeira formação contava com Barrie Masters (vocal), Dave Higgs (guitarra), Pete Wall (guitarra), Rob Steel (baixo) e Steve Nichol (bateria). Pete Wall e Rob Steel não seguiram em frente com a banda, e foram substituidos por Lew Lewis e um garotinho de 16 anos chamado Paul Gray (que mais tarde faria parte do The Damned).
Com esse novo line-up, o Eddie and the Hot Rods tocou no famoso Marquee Club abrindo para os Sex Pistols e assinou com a Island Records para o lançamento do álbum Teenage Depression, em 1976.
O Eddie and the hot rods na verdade não surgiu como uma banda punk, mas foi contaminado pela explosão da década de 70 e tornou-se uma das mais influentes bandas do início do punk.
Esta versão do álbum Teenage Depression traz 12 bonus tracks incluindo o EP "Live at the Marquee" e singles que só saíram em B-sides e não estão presentes em nenhum LP da banda.

5 mins. later:

OH NO..!!!! Whoever (or the software!) ripped this one didn't do a good job. The songs are totally messed/screwed up BIG TIME! Have a listen for yourself and then please re-rip and re-post, Thx!

Toxxy said...

I'm sorry...the songs are alright, nothing wrong with the rip. It was my player, KMPlayer, which somehow f*cked up the songs...don't know what happened, Jetaudio is playing the files just fine :-)

Sorry guys...

Thanks much. One of the first "punk" singles I bought was by Eddie and the Hot Rods. (Also got The Damned's first single on Stiff the same day.) And then the live at the Marquee club ep. And then the lp. Life was very cool and opening up large back then. Guess it never stopped. Thanks again.
