Pedro Iturralde Vampisoul

Jazz Flamenco 1 & 2

Pedro Iturralde was born in 1929 in Falces, Navarra. He received his first saxophone lessons from his father and soon started to play in all kinds of orchestras and learned a repertoire of popular music which included compositions by Falla, Albéniz and Granados. His permeability towards local folklore also awakened in him a great interest in the musical traditions of countries such as Lebanon, Turkey and Greece, places he would visit before turning 30 as part of several orchestras.

On his return to Spain, Madrid’s Whisky Jazz Club became his artistic residence for y …

Bad Brains Vinilísssimo

Black Dots

By the early summer of 1979 the Bad Brains were already tearing up Washington DC. They were armed with a tape they made at rehearsal, a real rugged thing, and were looking for people to play it to. The Slickee Boys heard it and suggested the band go out to record these songs at the fledgling Inner Ear Studios in Arlington, VA. What you are holding in your hands is the band’s first full length session of any kind in a recording studio.

At that time Inner Ear was Don Zientara’s basement. Don had a four track Teac 1/4" tape deck and a small drum booth to one side of the basem …

Los Amaya Vinilísssimo

Los Amaya y su Combo Gitano

Released by EMI in 1971, the debut LP by brothers José (A Coruña, 1950) and Delfín (Uvieu, 1952) Amaya with their Gipsy Combo is the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega of a cultural and musical movement, the rumba, that spread its infectious rhythm all over the dancefloors of Spain and beyond.

What Los Amaya y su Combo Gitano achieved in this LP is a milestone, a place where nobody had gone before and few would reach later (not even themselves, even if their biggest popular successes, such as the international smash hit ‘Vete’, were yet to …

What Have We Wrought? A Mike Atta Benefit Compilation

When the good guys at Burger Records asked me to curate this compilation, a benefit for Middle Class guitarist Mike Atta’s cancer treatments, I said yes in a heartbeat. Middle Class changed my life, and the sound of every other punk and hardcore band living in the shadow of their brilliant 1978 debut 7" EP "Out Of Vogue"; I owed this to Mike Atta. We ALL did.

Middle Class, consisting of the three Atta brothers: Jeff on vocals, Bruce on drums, Mike on guitar, and their school friend Mike Patton on bass (and later Matt Simon on drums), were already turning heads in the nasce …

Dangerhouse. Complete Singles Collected (1977-1979)

Once upon a time (197?) in a magical kingdom called LA, there was a defect in the space/time continuum known as "punk rock". Only in such a depraved environment could Dangerhouse have existed. Dangerhouse, created by the triumvirate of yours truly, Pat "Rand" Garrett and Black Randy, was a highly naive attempt to create a politically and artistically correct playground for the unique, nihilistic talents of the LA punk "scene". It was clear something needed to be done.

In the beginning there was a lot of musical talent that was going to unrecorded waste. Whereas the English …

Burning Vinilísssimo

Noches de Rock & Roll

At last, Burning’s fifth album becomes available after nearly three decades when it was almost impossible to get hold of in good conditions. Forget about cheap editions part of cheap series with the flat sound typical of cheap productions: the hidden gem of the discography of the kings of Madrid’s nights, always rock & roll nights, is rescued here with great sound and packaging. A gem that has a story.

Burning, already icons of Spanish rock, had just practically split in half. Toño, their charismatic singer, told his partners Pepe Risi (guitarist) and Johnny Cif …
