• A veritable torrent of essential dime-worrying jukebox 45s from Lux and Ivy of The Cramps’ overheated jukebox with freckled fish, wolves and a dab of the ole Uranium blues.

• 50 sub three-minute epics from twangy instrumentals to hopped-up novelty tunes, insane rockabilly tirades to RnB scorchers, new dance trends and swaggering rock ‘n’ rollers to aching melancholy laments – all undercut with an inevitable streak of madness and everyday irreverence.

• Featuring a cavalcade of no-hit wonders bemoaning ill-advised beards, car club etiquette, broken school romances, Martian invasions, overweight feathered friends, purring kittens, lonely travellers, relationship-inducing mental cruelty and all points between.

• Add to that some life affirming anthems aided by Lee Hazelwood, Kim Fowley, the unheralded Don Cole, latter day soul legend Bobby Freeman, Louis Jordan and Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson plus a teenage love letter to Elvis from The Threeteens who also hold forth on algebra.

• Remastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by MOJO magazine’s Dave Henderson.
