Teengenerate - Live At Shelter


You've seen Guitar Wolf, you know The 5678s, you heard about The Gimmies, now you can get the real action. Bop Records and The Tote announce two exclusive Australian shows of the true kings of Tokyo Garage Punk, Teengenerate. The Tokyo quartet 2were at the spearhead of the mid 90s Japanese Garage Rock Craze. Although they only existed between 1993 and 1995, their impact on rock 'n' roll was enormous: garage rock would not be what it is now without them. Centered around long term musical collaborators (& brothers) Fink & Fifi, together with Sammy and Shoe, Teengenerate recorded everything in the red - the fuzz became a fifth member. Far from a gimmick, as their stand out long player Get Action suggests, (along with a hoard of 7 inches, split singles and comps), these guys were wild and tight. Their records have also included covers of Radio Birdman's "Burn My Eye", The Eastern Dark's "Johnny and Dee Dee", "Savage" by The Fun Things and "All I Want" by the Dirty Lovers. Following the demise of Teengenerate, members continued playing in other name droppers, including Firestarter, Supersnazz, and most recently the reformed Raydios. Teengenerate's "Live at Shelter" confirms what fans of the band who never saw them live assumed; few acts could ever hope to match their no-frills but manic live energy. For the others who dismiss this kind of timeless garage/punk trash and the greatness of Teengenerate, well this'll be forever lost on them!!! (Recorded at Shelter Club 23/Dec/1995 - enginieered by Yokoyama)

I persuaded my wife to drive us over to Newport in Wales to see Teengenerate, Gaunt and New Bomb Turks. She managed TG then went off to the Bed and Breakfast I'd booked. She'll never know how privileged she is. :)
