Alleycat Scratch - Greatest Licks & Nasty Tricks (2013)


Recommended Posts


Formed in San Francisco in 1988, Sunset Strip lads ALLEYCAT SCRATCH arrived too late to the recording of their first full length CD (1993), as soon this type of music was phagocytosed by the grunge movement. But the band made some noise and gained considerable popularity during their five years of existence. Drummer Robbi Black has put together the ultimate CD package to ever be released from Alleycat Scratch: "Greatest Licks & Nasty Tricks", including 19 songs of the band's career all remastered by himself and published by Demon Doll Records.


The disc features the entire '93 album 'Deadboys In Trash City' (including the infamous bonus track "Love Song"), all 5 songs from the self-released EP 'Cheap City Thrills' recorded in 1991 with Tommy Haight on lead vocals, as well as 3 studio recordings from the never released 2nd full album 'Encore' : "Grave Gina", "Don't Forget Me" and "Sick (Of It All)". Also known as 'The Hollywood Deadboys', Alleycat Scratch is considered the last true pure sleazy hard rock act from the Sunset Strip, with hot, dirty glammy live shows. Many specialized magazines included 'Deadboys In Trash City' amongst the best Glam / Sleazy albums ever.


So if you like early Motley Crue, Vain, Faster Pussycat, LA Guns (Alleycat Scratch shared stages with 'em all) and Guns 'N Roses, you can't go wrong with titles like to “Stilletto Strut”, “Sexual Addiction”, the ballad “Roses On My Grave”, “Love Sick Junkie”, “Plastic Dolls” or the killer “Soul Survivor”. These guys were really good at their game, and this material is well produced and remastered.

Grab a bottle of Jack Daniels, turn up the volume to 10 and crank out of your speakers with "Greatest Licks & Nasty Tricks". Rocks.

    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
