VARIOUS ARTISTS
A Fistful Of Rock N' Roll Volume 3 (Tee Pee Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Volume three of thirteen in what is turning out to be one of the most top-flight compilation series ever! These are bands that have come crawling out of garages around North America and have not forgotten the lessons taught by bands like THE STOOGES, THE AMBOY DUKES, and THE SEX PISTOLS. Although volume three doesn't quite hold its own against the first two, it is excellent nonetheless. Some of the finest bands who check in this time are STUNT MEN, STITCHES, NEW AMERICAN MOB, LIBERTINE, SINISTERS (best track on the CD... dig that Nugent worship!) and the legendary JEFF DAHL. Although that isn't to say there is anything shabby about the contributions from TOILET BOYS, VALENTINE KILLERS, ROCKET ASS, JOHNNY BLACK & ASSASSINS, THE BULLYS, HOOKERS and LAZY COWGIRLS. Less impressive are ADZ (who have no right being sub-par considering they are the reincarnation of the ADOLESCENTS) and FUMES. The cover art for this volume is a guitar slinging rotting corpse courtesy of splatter punk doodler Jeff Gaither.
