Wife randomly found it for me in a record shop in KY a couple years ago. I'm glad they fired their original singer...he was simply awful.

Recently, I came across this little gem, the debut release of the Irish alternative rock band My Bloody Valentine, a mini-LP of seven songs, much to my surprise their debut is very different from their later soegazing-orientated work,

The music is very retro in terms of all the positive aspects of what made the pioneers of rock and punk so big, what you here is an enjoyful blend of 50ies rockabilly and 70ies punk, it's like James Dean meets Johnny rotten in a Lost Highway car crash.

from the mood the album sometimes reminds me to Joy Division, there's also a certain The Doors influence in it, the singer Dave Conway performs a similar vocal style but after he left the group the band's guitarist Kevin Shields took over and the vocal style changed significally to a more balanced and calmer one.

The album benefits from its minimalistic instrumentation which gives it that authentic live-feeling.

The opening song "Forever and Again" reminds me of a certain imagery, smokey streets of chicaco in the 50s, gloaming street lights, and seedy statures the perfect sound of a an old gangster movie.

Another highlights are the powerful and punky "homelovin' guy" and two psychedelics "inferno" and "the last supper"

I recommend this album to every serious punkrock fan.
