DESCRIPTION


A chaotic and intense Craig Leon-produced hybrid of Dolls, Stooges and most of the Nuggets bands by Jeff ‘Mono Mann’ Conolly’s pre-Lyres group DMZ.


Unavailable for over three decades, we are happy to reissue this garage rock’s essential gem, originally released in the early days of Greg Shaw’s Bomp! label.



Bomp! Records of Burbank, California was likely the most significant American independent record label of the 1970s. It was the first in this country to recognize and actively support the punk rock and new wave revolution with its releases, at a time when both America’s vast regional disparity and an extremely conservative record business had deemed this new, strange idiom anathema. In its first five years Bomp! the label wore its heart on its sleeve with a series of fascinating, unpredictable, and memorable 45 RPM releases. And the whole was brainstormed by Greg Shaw, likely the only maverick alive at that time who could have created and populated such a scenario.


The winter 1976 issue of Who Put The Bomp (Greg Shaw’s fanzine) had featured a detailed report on the Boston scene, with favorable mentions of two future Bomp! acts. Willie ‘Loco’ Alexander was a local legend, the storied former lead singer of the Lost, and his 1975 single ‘Kerouac’ (reissued on Bomp!) was a suitably eccentric, Dylan-ish ode to the beat maven. DMZ was a more predictable proposition, sporting obvious glam roots and an eccentric but dedicated rock & roll fan in lead singer, Jeff ‘Mono Mann’ Conolly.


Wearing his heart on his sleeve, Conolly and crew went for a chaotic and intense hybrid of Dolls, Stooges and most of the Nuggets bands, so Bomp! the label was a natural choice. With killer cuts like ‘Busy Man’ and ‘When I Get Off,’ their Craig Leon-produced 1977 EP captured the DMZ zeitgeist considerably better than the album they would later record for Sire.*
