Love That Album - The Compilation Series: Episode 11 – A Real Cool Pop

Happy New Year everyone. Love That Album podcast is back again for 2015. We here at LTA headquarters will strive to continue to bring you great music discussion.

We start the year off with an episode of LTA: The Compilation Series hosted by Eric Reanimator…..and he’s bringing you a high dose of energetic punk and garage sounds via two fantastic compilations.

First of all, Eric discusses an Australian compilation Do The Pop!: The Australian Garage Rock Sound 1976-1987. Eric’s passion for Radio Birdman was the starting point for him picking up on this brilliant 2 CD set, but there’s a treasure trove of material here from the likes of the Hoodoo Gurus, The Eastern Dark, The Saints, The Sunnyboys and a plethora of other bands, mixing and influenced by the punk, garage and pop sounds of the 60s and 70s. This corner of the world was making essential music all northern hemisphere music fans of these genres need to pick up on. [As an adjunct, I’m hoping to get an interview for a future LTA with the man who put this anthology together – stay tuned].

Then, Eric goes to Sweden to tells us about the virtues of A Real Cool Time Revisited: Swedish Punk, Pop and garage Rock 1982-1989. Essentially, the Swedish equivalent of Do The Pop, it features bands like The Nomads, The Crimson Shadows, The Bottle Ups, and The Creeps. Like the Australian bands, the Swedes put out excellent material in a scene worked independently of the Americans and the British. This is another terrific compilation worthy of your attention.
Once again, Eric delivers the goods with intelligent music discussion about music you truly need to hear. Listen to the podcast and be convinced.
