Pure Pop Records

If you just skim the credits'out on Geffen, produced by long-time Epic Records main man Tom Werman (Cheap Trick, Molly Hatchet, Blue √Ėyster Cult), and featuring such decorated sidemen as Al Kooper and Earl Slick'you'd have good reason to toss this 1989 release into the major label, er, junkyard. But hang on a second'is that Brian Baker of Minor Threat, Dag Nasty, and (later) Bad Religion and Chris Gates of the Big Boys on guitars?! Why, yes it is'and hence this set of self-described 'blooze-rock' has an edge all it's own as it simultaneously sends up and celebrates the dissolute Hollywood rock and roll lifestyle. Some folks compared Junkyard to Geffen label-mates Guns 'N Roses, and some compared 'em to AC/DC, but the Southern rock touches married to punk rock attitude carve out a nice 'n' nasty niche. If you blinked, you missed when Junkyard came out on vinyl the first time around; for it's first-ever LP reissue, we're pressing up 1500 copies in opaque yellow wax, with original inner sleeve. Let's rawk!
