KMA369 Pop Rivets – Greatest Hits

I believe I’ve raved in these pages before about the talents of one Billy Childish. I’ve managed to collect a few of his records over the years, which really should be more because he’s released a couple hundred by now, easily.


Anyway, on a recent trip to Toronto I managed to find a couple of discs by one of his bands, the Pop Rivets. What a blast of fun! This one, which they’ve called Greatest Hits, is a collection of great garage punk, boldly diplaying that perfect late 70’s sound and an energy that’s refreshing. It makes me want to continue turning up the volume as it plays on. Think I will…


Ah, there. That’s better. Yeah, there’s old 50’s beats and surf influence and straight on punk and a general love of barely controlled chaos all mixed together into a delicious swirl that make these songs absolute keepers. You’ll be sure you’ve hear it all before, but that’s because this was the influence for what you’re remembering. Awesome.


Yeah, baby, this disc rocks.
