Changing pace with 'Wavy Gravy' For Adult Enthusiasts... Various Weird Recordings From The 50's Vol. 1, the origination of what today we call podcasts and other compilations of the like combining B horror/grindhouse film trailers with weird obscure tracks. This is where I got the idea to mix in recorded film scenes into my mixes I used to make for people way back- but nobody can do it like the Wavy Gravy creators. Not only are the trailers along with the songs extremely entertaining- the way they're woven together is brilliant. This compilation is meant to be listened to in its entirety, I suggest having a couple of friends over who won't let their douche flags fly to high and bright to listen to this remarkable comp- you won't be disappointed. The combination of trailers and tracks gives the album a seedy 50s degenerate feel that will hook you, you'll be scrambling to find Vol. 2. Some highlights include the demented country song "Psycho" by none other than the sinister Eddie Noack who's other mental song "Dolores" was featured on the God Less America comp. If I had to pick a favorite it would be "L.S.D" by Wendell Austin, a song about his awful experiences on acid or as he calls it "hallucination blues." This is mandatory people, enjoy the weirdness...
