When skeletons play bongos...

Well, it' surely Tempo tantrum !

I remember this year 1989, when I came to Mulhouse, France, not far from the Germany frontier. My friend who lived there bring me to a cool vinyl shop where I found this superb piece of rock'nroll.
At that time I just known the name A Bones by another friend of mine who was fond of Cramps, (Miriam Linna was the second Cramps drummer), Gun Club, etc... (you know, this strange kind of stuff; devil rock for deranged kids !?)
Hmmm,, well, so do I buy this, certain to keep back home a -bizarrerie.
In the meanwhile, I did my rock'nroll way, and been introduced to Norton label, and so Miriam Linna, etc, etc...

Today, it's with real emotion,and great pleasure that I keep off this piece of pure rockab/rock'nroll from my cellar, just for ...you.
