The next classic from Its War Boys! is the hilariously strange, Vic Serf and the Villans cassette only release from 1980 (£6).
What happens when you put classic rock'n'roll into a blender, and strain the pure juice through a tea strainer, and flush the liquid down the bog, leaving only the crappy cruddy parts of rock N roll:
Elvis's pub singer vocals, laughable do-woppy harmonies, sub-moronic lyrics that are an insult to meaninglessness, twangy guitars, and skiffle-lite drumming......that'll give you most of the ingredients for Rock Y Roll, plus a barrell load of unhinged experimentalism.
But the most important ingredient is Jim 'Amos' Whelton and his nonband of squatters, to make this one of the best rock'n'roll parody/study's this side of the Residents 'Third Reich'n'Roll', or Zappa's 'Ruben and the Jets'.
You can just imagine Vic serf singing these tunes on Vic Reeves' Big Night Out in th 1990's.
A sense of humour is required,so if you don't have one then don't listen to it.
