A few years ago a New Jersey based promoter was looking around the Asbury Park area for a venue to present shows featuring garage and psychobilly bands. He discovered a neglected bowling alley (vintage 1961) and envisioned a cool music scene with a campy 50's vibe and a stage out in the middle of the alleys. Asbury Lanes was born. Countless shows built The Lanes's reputation as one of area's most exciting live venues. Bands from every part of the US and Europe consider the Lanes a favorite stop on their tour schedules. Headshop Records recognized the unique energy and excitement of the performances there and invited some of the East Coast's finest garage bands to participate in a live compilation recording project. Here is the result. This album features: The Brimstones (New Brunswick, NJ) The Coffin Daggers (New York, NY) Thee Minks (Philadelphia, PA) The Misteriosos (Philadelphia, PA) Mondo Topless (Philadelphia, PA) Muck & the Mires (Boston, MA) Sons of Moon (New York, NY) These live performances are a kick ass representation of the kind of excitement typical of a show at this unique club. The tracks are high energy and have a raw intensity that is electrifying. Enjoy the fun!
