If it takes a cassette to gather all the psych pummeling madness of CHARLES ALBRIGHT into one place, so be it. The First Four Years would be recommended even if it came out on just 8 track. Charles Albright's under the radar garage punk noise making has gone very under appreciated by many, but maybe this collection of way out of print singles can change that. Here's the scoop from Sacramento Records:
"CHARLES ALBRIGHT has been a fixture in Sacramento's underground punk
scene for over a decade. Chances are the only band of Charles' that
you've heard is THE PIZZAS, but he has been in a ton of them (all of them awesome and so under the radar.) This
cassette features his various singles released on labels like S.S., Permanent and Goodbye Boozy. No bullshit psych punk that still lurks in the garage and has
great over-blown guitar that sounds like young Charles has soaked up
plenty Leigh Stephens and Greg Ginn, which he has."
Yes and add to that crazed drive of those old Rip Offs records, the
feedback buzz of the Wipers and a heavy overdose of anything psychedelic,
and what you get is someone who ought to be selling records as fast as
The Oh Sees and Ty Segall combined.
Like shotgunning a six pack of
cheap beer and lighting a pile of Maximum Rock n Rolls on fire to burn
yr ex-girlfriends house down. You have some fun reckless nights ahead
of you with The First Four Years tape........
heavily suggested for those of you who love TYVEK, JAY REATARD, THE OBLIVIANS, SUPERCHARGER and the like.........
