Side A: Doin' Time / Bad Man / Pocky Whore
Side B: Shakin' All Over / The Itch / Mischievous
The debut mini album from London garage punk sensation MINISKIRT BLUES. Formed in 2002, the band features members of Klingonz, Nocturnal Teds and Spacewasters. Influences are drawn from punk, garage and psychobilly with a complex distillation from both ancient and contemporary. Think The Cramps on speed.
Having played with the likes of Dememted Are Go, Deadline, Nekromantix and Sick On The Bus etc., they are building up their reputation with incredibly powerful and explosive live performances, adding their own individual style with their strong growling vocals. You can catch them live at the Speedfreaks Ball this November one of the UK's top festivals.
This is a limited edition 10" vinyl, pressed on black wax, handnumbered to 500 copies and including a cover of "Shakin' All Over" written by Johnny Kidd and The Pirates that can be heard regularly in their sets. The Itch is an intense fusion of all things MINISKIRT BLUES. Sleazy garage to the max, this is no bullshit, no gimmicks, just reality!
