Johnnie Allan - Promised Land (1978)

Johnnie Allan, real name John Allen Guillot, is a pioneer of the swamp pop musical genre. Born March 10, 1938, in Rayne, Louisiana, Allan, a Cajun, grew up in a musical family, and at age six obtained his first guitar. By age thirteen he was playing with Walter Mouton and the Scott Playboys, a traditional Cajun music band. About two years later he switched to Lawrence Walker and the Wandering Aces, another traditional Cajun band. In 1956 he saw Elvis Presley perform live on the Louisiana Hayride music program, and shortly afterwards Allan began to play rock and roll music. In 1958 he left Walker to form the Krazy Kats, and in doing so helped to pioneer what became known as swamp pop music. He returned to the Jin label in the early 1970s and went on to record many notable swamp pop tunes, including his version of Chuck Berry's "Promised Land" in 1978.

The Belgian synth-pop group Telex was formed in 1978 by Marc Moulin, Dan Lacksman, and Michel Moers, with the intention of "Making something really European, different from rock, without guitar—and the idea was electronic music." Mixing the aesthetics of disco, punk and experimental electronic music .Telex had a typically Belgian, self-deprecating sense of humour. They were influenced by the famed Brussels school of comics (Tintin etc.). For their initial press shots they had gone for a bizarre, faceless image (later also to be assumed by the likes of Devo and The Residents). In 1986, Telex released the album “Looney Tunes”, with the single ´Spike Jones´.

A - Chili Con Carne (2:46)
B - But You´re Beautiful (3:47)

Label: Vertigo Records
Genre: Rock
Producer: Streetwalkers
Country: U.K.

Streetwalkers were an English rock band formed in late 1973 by two former members of Family, vocalist Roger Chapman and guitarist John "Charlie" Whitney. They were a five piece band which evolved from Chapman and Whitney's previous touring band Chapman Whitney Streetwalkers. The band was managed by Michael Alphandary and Harvey Goldsmith and were best known for their live performances. By 1977 their potential to become more important in UK rock history was diminished by changing musical taste, due to the growing influence of Punk rock and New Wave music on European culture. The band had success in USA and Europe, particularly Germany. The euphoria surrounding Streetwalkers began to diminish and the potential of becoming more established in Europe evaporated. The album “Vicious But Fair” was released in 1977 with the single ´Chili Con Carne´.

Bob Marley & The Wailers - Roots Rock Reggae b/w Talkin´ Blues (1976) - single

Bob Marley & The Wailers was a reggae band created by Bob Marley in 1974. “Rastaman Vibration” is a roots reggae album by Bob Marley & The Wailers released on April 30, 1976. While the album was a big hit in the USA, becoming the first (and only) Bob Marley release to hit the top ten on the Billboard 200 charts , it did not generate a significant hit single, although "Roots, Rock, Reggae" was the only Bob Marley single to reach the Billboard Hot 100 charts, peaking at #51. Synthesizers are featured prominently on this album, adding a breezy embellishment to otherwise hard-driving songs with strong elements of rock guitar.

Fortune - Saddle The Wind b/w Certain Kind Of Feeling (1978) - single

Fortune is an 1980s rock band that had a number of minor hits in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The Fortune Band began in the late 70's when brothers Richard Fortune on guitar and Mick Fortune on drums decided to join together and form a band. The first Fortune self-titled album was released on Warner Bros in 1978 with follow-up WB singles releases including "Squeeze Me, Tease Me" and "Saddle in the Wind."  The songs are sung, respectively, by Maureen Thornton and Colleen Fortune. Fortune co-wrote most of the record with Richard Fortune. Colleen and Richard seems to be a husband-and-wife musical team, but she left the group at some point, which I assume detracted from both the music and the cover art

A - God Save The Queen (3:20)
B - Did You No Wrong (3:09)

Label: Virgin Records
Genre: Punk
Producer: Chris Thomas
Land: U.K.

The Sex Pistols are an English punk rock band that formed in London in 1975. The Sex Pistols are responsible for initiating the punk movement in the United Kingdom and inspiring many later punk and alternative rock musicians. Although their initial career lasted just two-and-a-half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, “Never Mind The Bollocks, Here's The Sex Pistols”, they are regarded as one of the most influential acts in the history of popular music. The Sex Pistols originally comprised vocalist Johnny Rotten, guitarist Steve Jones, drummer Paul Cook and bassist Glen Matlock. Matlock was replaced by Sid Vicious in early 1977. Under the management of impresario Malcolm McLaren, the band created controversies which captivated Britain. ‘God Save The Queen’ was the second single released by the punk rock band Sex Pistols. It was released during Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee in 1977. The record's lyrics, as well as the cover, were controversial at the time, and both the BBC and the Independent Broadcasting Authority refused to play the song.

The Buddy Odor Stop - Buddy Odor Is A Gas b/w I Love You Madly (1979) - single

Terwijl de platen van Gruppo Sportivo met een grote publiciteitscampagne in de Verenigde Staten worden uitgebracht komt tot ieders verrassing het bericht dat Hans Vandenburg heeft besloten de groep op te heffen omdat hij zich beperkt voelt in zijn muzikale ontwikkeling. Zijn plan is een nieuwe band op te richten met muzikanten die hij in New York zal uitzoeken. Eind van het jaar verschijnt het debuutalbum van Buddy Odor Stop, waarin geen Amerikanen voorkomen maar wel o.a. de Gruppo-muzikanten Peter Calicher, Max Mollinger, Meike Touw en Lisa Bialac (zij zong mee op het album Unforgiven van Tim Hardin). De begeleidende concertreeks trekt veel publiek, maar de reacties zijn gereserveerd. Het jazzy geluid is voor velen een te grote stijlbreuk en de zaal roept voortdurend om de oude successen. Het album Buddy Odor Is A Gas! en de gelijknamige single floppen genadeloos.
