Sheena & The Rokkets – #1 LP

Here comes Mentai Rock legend Sheena And The Rokkets‘ 1979 debut LP, appropriately titled #1. The music is of course less punk than new wave rock (here too with a bit of a 50s influence), but the opener Highway Of Tears is such a driving, stomping and heart-thumping punk rock number you just wanna put on a moth-eaten Oxfam jacket, bounce around your room and gob at your parents! No wait, that would have been the UK… No idea what the punk kids in Fukuoka did.
This version of the LP is a later pressing from the mid-eighties with a different song order and one extra track.

Enjoy!

Sheena & The Rokkets – Kiss Me Quick + 恋のムーンライト・ダンス 7“

Here comes one of Mentai Rock legend Sheena And The Rokkets‘ earlier (well, 1980) singles, with two lovely new wave numbers. In my opinion, the b-side „Love’s Moonlight Dance“ is the winner of these two. Listening to it, you can just see love-sick teenagers, doing that awkward slow dance under a bright Fukuoka moon, haha…

No idea if the lyrics are appropriate for that, though.
