LIVE ONES: Yer Quite Welcome: LP

Another plucked gem from the city of Brooklyn, New York and the aural backhanded wallop this record delivers is the gift of rock that keeps on giving. Fans of proto punk/garage rock are going to have a real cool time with this full-length. When I gave this a listen the first time through, the thing that immediately jumped into my head was an image of 1975-era Ace Frehley being a hired gun for the Flamin’ Groovies, MC5, Teenage Head, The Dogs, and that short time The Stooges existed before Iggy went solo. If none of the above gets your private parts pulsating, you need to pull your thumb out of your ass and start slapping said parts around, because if this doesn’t get you up and party rocking, nothing will. Would love to hear what the Live Ones do onstage turned up to ten.
