my loveliest vinyl, part 3

Teenage Bottlerocket - They Came From The Shadows (Fat Wreck Chords, 2009)
Teenage Bottlerocket – They Came From The Shadows (Fat Wreck Chords, 2009)

 

This one now spans decades, ain’t it? Released in 2009, that is quite a distance from 1979 (and the glory 7″ of The Pack). On this one there is so little to say other than if such a record comes out every year then every year since 1976 was a great year.

Again, by all counts a great record with a monster track in „Bigger than Kiss“:

1977 – does that matter here? Naaaa – not.
published by a cool lable – ticked, Fat Wreck is a great home-brew type of lable (gone big)
found in a cool shop – not ticked, unfortunately i do not own the green vinyl version…
catching sound – tick, tick, tick or „1,2,3…4“
not too bad words – conscious words to explain why they are big. damn good.
Bous: recorded at a great place – yes, right there, at the Blasting Room (of Bill Stephenson fame)

There is not a lot history to state on Teenage Bottlerocket, but i can tell you the (actually twin) brothers Carlisle do rock, big time! Bring them on! Anyday, Anytime!

Here it is it in all glory:

Detroit couldn't rock itself out of a paper bag
Gene Simmons looks kinda cool
But Paul Stanley kinda looks like a jag
Ace Frehley can play guitar
But he ain't no fucking Kerry King
So get your ass out of the way
Here comes a rock revolution
Listen up cause I'm about to sing
The creatures of the night
Can't hold a candle to this
We'll be kickin' ass we'll be takin' names
When we're bigger than Kiss
I never thought cocaine
Could be as good as this
We'll live our lives in alcoholic bliss
When we're bigger than Kiss
Rock!

Me and Charlie we have it loud
Yeah you know we rock and roll all night
Paul Stanley fell down on stage and broke a hip
Let's hope he's not alright
The ladies don't like old men
Now my love gun is the one in demand
And we're gonna go down in history
As the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band
The creatures of the night
Can't hold a candle to this
We'll be kickin' ass we'll be takin' names
When we're bigger than Kiss
Calling Dr. Love hey geta load of this
Ray beat the piss out of Peter Criss
Now we're bigger than Kiss

There is a little side note to this: Artist Ben Levin is worth a mention! As i do like my Bro Hernadez style comics i do like this too. Sure!

Millerntor Roar back in town, 2:1 last minute win

Home, sweet home...
Home, sweet home…

Wer einfach mehr investiert, wer nach Fehlern nicht aufhört – der wird belohnt. Und wenn die Kraft nicht reicht, dann gibt es Doping von den Rängen. Meine Fresse, das war gestern abend eine 2te Halbzeit! Es ist lange her das der FCSP einen „Last Minute Win“ eingefahren hat und es ist lange her das der Millerntor Roar die letzten 13 Minuten so laut war. Nimmermüder Einsatz + Kondition + Roar = Goal. That simple! Wow!

 

 

Himmel hilf!

Home, sweet home...
Home, sweet home…

Das war ein starkes Stück: Ein völlig durchgeknallter Schiri, der offensichtlich nach seinem eigenen Regelbuch pfiff. In diesem gab es nur wenige Regeln:

1. Handspiel. Egal welcher Koerperteil wann erwas machte. Er sah „Hand“. Konsequenz – 2 Handelfmeter gegen uns über die der Gegner nur lachen konnte.
2. Meckern. Jedes Geräusch das ein Spieler nach einem Schripfiff von sich gab wurde konsequent mit gelb geahndet.

Wir gewannen 2:1 nach Verlängerung, es war Pokal, aber wenn einer den Schiri umgehauen hätte – ich hätte Verständniss gehabt.

Der Gegner auch – die haben den Schiri öfter die Armen.
