Steep during an era! This music will be lasts eternally if I replace batteries!
Two records now available as a single CD, these really show off Yo La Tengo's ability to create musical extremes. New Wave Hot Dogs has the firm pop sense and strong songwriting of the debut, but President Yo La Tengo offers up a little more free-form skronk in the ten-minute live version of "The Evil That Men Do," a gloriously squalling, over-the-top crash-and-bash session which proves how liberating and fun sonic dissonance can be. Just in case you don't like that sort of thing, "Evil" also shows up as a straight-ahead folk-rock track. This is a great collection of material that, as well as anything else they have recorded, gets to the heart of what makes this band tick.
Powerman 5000 is an American rock band formed in 1991.

The band's latest release, New Wave, came out in 2017 on the Pavement Entertainment label, and the group is touring in support of the album. Frontman Spider One is the younger brother of fellow metal musician Rob Zombie.
The Wave Pictures are an english band consisting of David Tattersall (vocals & guitar), Franic Rozycki (bass guitar) and Jonny Helm (drums). Susan Rode The Cyclone is their fourth official album release and their second for Little Teddy Recordings. The Wave Pictures do not tire of playing their contagious cheek on whatever stage allows them to do so, in fact they make the most of the quiet moments between touring to go into the studio and come out with a collection of cheeky and playful songs in which folk and pop come together completely naturally. Still not satisfied with recording the brilliant "Instant Coffee Baby" (2008) and "If You Leave It Alone" (2009), now "Susan Rode The Cyclone" (2010) confirms they are in top form with its stripped-down sound and witty lyrics, the scratching guitars, the overwhelming choruses.
