For me, it doesn't get much better than when Roky is beltin' it out; his inner demons giving the rest of us a "welcome/warning sign" to climb aboard his alien spacecraft.
This collection chronicles recordings from 1976-1982 w/ his bands The Aliens, as well as with The Explosives. There are also some solo joints on here too.
This is going down well with the heavy rains that have finally hit Northern California today. Enjoy.

It fucking blows what has happened to so many of my fellow bloggers in the past 2 days - I was lucky enough to not use Megupload - so I am still here. For now. Hopefully this will be the end of the file-hosting crackdowns, and we can get on with it. Hopefully also, those of you who have had your blogs ripped to shreds by the file deletions will hopefully continue onwards. Good luck, comrades.


  1. Roky is something I've only dabbled in so this will be a nice lesson...thanx. Lost quite a few files with the fascist destruction of MegaUpload. This SOPA thing is crazy and will effect freedoms outside of filesharing, goes hellishly well with the senate/congress/president signing the defense bill which amongst other things allows citizens to be detained without due process under the banner of anti terrorism. Crazy shit. We shall see...thanx again as always.

  2. Thanks for all. United states of fascism indeed. Keep up the good fight and don’t let the bastards grind you down.

  3. Got almost everything Roky has ever put out, dubious and official releases. Mad Dog has a few quality tracks. Well worth grabbing.
