DANGÜS TARKÜS - Rock'n'Roll for the People LP
- Label: OTHER LABELS
- Catalog Number: DIG004
- Availability: In Stock
After last years dazzling EP on Lumpy Records, its high time Dangüs
Tarküs’ mysterious, heretofore cassette-only, killer 2013 glam punk
debut, Rock ‘n’ Roll for the People, got a proper (limited) vinyl
Who is Dangüs and what’s a Tarküs you ask (after all the searches of
Google, Wiki and the works fail to reveal the truth…)? Dangüs Tarküs is
the alter ego of Joe Sussman. So who is Joe Sussman? Joe Sussman -
among other distinctions* – is the front dude
and guitar guru of NANCY (Brooklyn come Chicago’s dynamo punk duo).
Loyal NANCY fans will recognize Dangüs Tarküs originals on the album
(like “My Josie”, “Inverted Kingdom” and “Hot Love”) from NANCY’s
sizzling live sets, fleshed out here and tracked with a full band
(although little else is known of the rhythm section, comprised of
bassist Tüsh M’Güsh and drummer YouTübe FartTübe).
Well worth the wait and it’s weight – in meatballs, tushy tickles and
every last generation of pure AM/FM gold – listeners at home can expect
to find the best mutant punk blasts since the age of new records from
The Spits (on bangers like “Apocalloyd” and “Brain Teaser”). Pressed for
45 RPM and lovingly remastered and cut at +5DB, it’s legitimately loud
at ANY volume! And much like any serious Rock’n’Roll effort, this
platter summons it’s kindred spirits and primordial forbearers in a slew
of covers, ranging from the classics (Sparks and Nikki & the
Corvettes) to the more obscure and underappreciated (Pantherman).
They’re reinvented here, and newly indispensable – like all the songs
The Cramps ever taught us!
Desperate times call for Dangüs Tarküs; now let Rock’n’Roll for the People ring-a-ding-ding!!!
