THE LIMIT - The Limit [USA 1983] EP

THE LIMIT sprang from fertile ground. In the early 1980s, New Orleans was home to a thriving punk, hardcore, new wave and metal scene. The Limit, who coined their brand of music “powerful pop,” began playing the local club scene in the spring of 1982.

The trio recorded their debut EP at the end of 1982 and released it as a 10” in May of 1983 in an edition of 500 copies. Featuring four infectiously catchy tunes, the record sold well and received promising reviews.

THE HORDE - Press Buttons Firmly [USA 1967]

Undoubtedly the most exciting mid sixties garage album to be recently discovered in the genre is that by The Horde from North Carolina. The existence of this self-produced album came to collectors' ears and eyes only about a year ago. It was recorded more or less accidently in early 1967, released in a micro quantity of only 25 copies and among the local U.S. garage albums of the decade it is one of the few eclectic examples with all the ingredients that makes it outstanding compared with the usual prep-school albums of the time.

PRUDENCE - Tomorrow May Be Vanished [NOR 1972]

This group from Namsos took their name from the famous Beatles song "Dear Prudence". Partly influenced by Bob Dylan, The Band, Jethro Tull and The Beatles, their idea was to make a new kind of rural Norwegian rock with the unhip accordion as one of their main instruments (along with electric guitars, mandolin and recorder).

Their first album, ‘Tomorrow May Be Vanished’ (1972), was an uneven affair, but included some of the best tracks they ever wrote ("Going Through His Life" and the title track).



GROOVE was Sudden's last official album of the '80s (as well as his final for Creation). Recorded with his band The French Revolution, it is probably Sudden's grittiest outting.
