Black Moon Evil Wolf -Good Day Feelin’ –Obscure US Hard Rock (1973)

Black Moon Evil Wolf -Good Day Feelin’/ Searching For Nothing –Rains VPI-7301S (1973 US)

Black Moon Evil Wolf…God, you’ve got to love that name and the record itself nearly lives up to it. This track nails it, the drumming is stellar full on pounding throughout, the tune and the monotone riffing is also up there while the vocals resonate disinterested Punk attitude. It is just a shame that the lead break is organ-based and a bit pointless… now if only we had a blistering screeching Guitar lead instead. Out of Knoxville Tennessee; Black Moon Evil Wolf seems to have only presented this entry to the near Bonehead Pantheon.

Bran Vattën – I Just Want To Rock and Roll You -US Proto Punk 1972

Bran Vattën – I Just Want To Rock and Roll You/ From Now On – Segué SG-113 (1972 US)

Released in 1972, here is a slab of high energy rock n roll by an obscure Pittsburgh area band.  It reminds me a bit of a budding early Kiss but without the histrionics. I Just Want To Rock and Roll You is a short, cutting and succinct Proto Punk Rock n Roller of the highest calibre. Produced by local DJ/Producer/Manager Terry Lee who was also behind The Swamp Rats and The Fantastic Dee-Jays, but I am not sure there is any lineage there. Bran Vattën had another single out in 1972, and that seems to be it. I look forward of hopefully hearing more about this band soon
