about

Get Hip Recordings (GH-1051)

FORGET ABOUT THE WHOLE GODDAMN “SURF” REVIVAL, FOR CHRISSAKE!!!! Link Protrudi & the Jaymen were whippin’ up the meanest, grungiest instro-raunch this side o’ Link Wray while those guys were surfin’ their mommy’s tit! And to top it off, Link Wray wasn’t even a household name yet!

This steamin’ slab is a testimonial to what real rock’n’roll is all about! Link & the Jaymen's first two LP’s, Drive It Home (1987) and Missing Links (1989), are featured here on this collection of balls-out bone-crushers, totally remastered and appearing for the first time on CD (fer those of you who need to grasp every subtle nuance that modern digital enhancement can milk outta 4 tracks - ha ha). Up till now, these gems have only been available on import vinyl.
