LUKE WARM ‘s/t’ Lp (RUR 070)
In 1980, Detroit's LUKE MUCUS & THE PHLEGM morphed into the more accessible LUKE WARM. Catching
the New Wave/Power Pop bug, LUKE WARM discovered their strength as songwriters, and grew from
delivering raw, entertaining absurdities, to their now quirky-yet-catchy, polished gems. Notoriety came when
LUKE WARM's "Jesus Chrysler" single was released b/w "Why Don't You Like Me?". Continued gigging,
radio airplay, interviews and a Detroit Free Press article, gave LUKE WARM the motivation that they were
now on the right track. And, if fate smiled on their burgeoning talents thet they might also have been on the
fast-track. Time, of course is relative... but you can still follow their tracks!
GROUND ZERO ‘s/t’ Lp (RUR 071)
Ground Zero was more than a band; it was a group of outcast musicians and visual artists hailing from Ohio,
Maine, West Virginia, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and places in between. In 1978, in the dirty bowels of
Boston’s South End, this group of renegades rented some of the run-down and abandoned industrial loft
spaces on Thayer Street and began an alternative art movement that would challenge the established art
and music “culture” of the city.
24 Thayer St. (The Star Systems Loft) became the birthplace of Ground Zero, a group of musicians, film
makers, photographers, xerographers, artists, and videographers who decided to join skills to produce an
anarchic, movable musical and visual feast combining post-war angst, deconstructed 60s pop with Dada and
existential influences. Ground Zero soon hosted all-night, illegal concert/events at the loft performing with
alternative and punk groups from Boston and New York such as James White and the Contortions, Le Peste,
Bound & Gagged, The Girls, Mission of Burma, Ragged Rite, and The Stains.
Utilizing screens, projectors, TV monitors, and musical equipment, GZ provided a total immersive
experience. Combining video, film, photography, xerography, and music, they were one of the first punk/art
groups to combine all of these diverse elements into their live performances and led the way in transforming
the Boston art and music scene in the late 70s and early 80s.
The musicians, Duane Huntington (Synths), Geoff Alderman (Bass and Lyricon), Mark Olin (Vocals), Steve
Founds (Drums) and Michael Slygh (Guitar and Vocals), were the “live” embodiment of the imagery provided
by Phil Hopper (Film), Sherry Edwards (Video and Graphics), and Marie Favorito (Photo and Lighting).
The group recorded a 45 rpm, “Ground Zero”, in 1979 and a follow-up 33 rpm, 7” EP, “Born to be Bombed”,
in 1980. A rarely seen, full length video/film project, entitled “Televoid”, was produced in 1980 and can still be
found on YouTube. With the Cold War and Atomic Fever raging and Ronald Reagan kicking mental patients
into the streets of Amerika for the sake of the wealthy, these children of the 50s and 60s screamed into the
face of the unrelenting insanity.  It wasn’t always pretty and some of us burned out all too quickly, but it was a
sensational and always intense fight. The more things change, the more they stay the same......Half Life
Lives!
Rave Up records is now proud to produce the anthology of one of the best american underground bands
ever: Ground Zero!
 LUKE MUCUS & THE PHLEGM ‘s/t’ Lp (RUR 072)
In 1978, at the ages of 16-18, LUKE MUCUS & THE PHLEGM started playing the Detroit punk clubs
Bookie's, Lili's, and The New (Old) Miami. Combining the anarchist rantings of The Sex Pistols, the industrial
chugging buzz of The Stooges and The Ramones, the showmanship of Alice Cooper, and the nod/wink
social commentary of Frank Zappa, LUKE MUCUS & THE PHLEGM offered a unique entrée in Detroit's
booming punk buffet. But "getting" LMP was not an acquired taste. You either got it or you didn't. And if you
got it, YOU LOVED IT AND COULDN'T GET ENOUGH. Two curiously magical years, captured for you to
digest.
GINA HARLOW AND THE CUTTHROATS
“Live at Max’s Kansas City” Lp (RUR 073)
Gina Harlow and the Cutthroats were icons in the hey-day of Punk and New Wave, in New York City. Their
shows at Max’s Kansas City, CBGB’s, Trax, Heat, Hurrah’s, and The Mudd Club were legendary. They
shared the bill with The Heartbreakers at Max’s Kansas City, at SNAFU’s they shared the bill with the Johnny
Average Band featuring Mick Ronson, they headlined the Beacon Theatre to a sold out audience, and
performed at the original Copacabana several times. Gina Harlow & the Cutthroats - Live on Stage hit the
stands as Billboard magazine’s “Recommended LP’s” when it debuted in 1978. The record was recorded in
1978 at Max’s Kansas City (the legendary New York City Punk/Rock club). The band consisted of Gina
Harlow: Bass and Vocals; Jesse Davis: Guitar and Vocals; and Nick Fuse: Drums. It was released with no
overdubs, preserving the raw and live sound of a new group in its infancy; this is a recording of the groups’
fourth gig. The group was a classic in the Punk Rock genre all songs are original and reflect the social
climate of the 70’s. Performing high-energy rock, the musical theme was a reflection of the era, served up
with social, political and religious satire, it was a highly visual stage show with lots of interaction between
Gina and Jesse.  The group disbanded in the 1980, Gina Harlow continued to perform in New York, until
1985. Then, she disappeared…it was reported that she lived in an undisclosed location, with wild and
savage head-hunters, until 2011, when Elvis is came to her in a dream…Well, she answered his call and
she’s back, watch out, she’s wild.
“Gina Harlow and the Cutthroats lived in New York City during the seventies and eighties, we were
described as New Wave, Nuevo Wavo, Punk, Kamikaze Rock…we were just writing songs and singing about
what we saw, experienced, or believed in….We definitely wanted to shock and awake our audience, that’s
why the nude photo of me on the cover. Watch and Listen! “ Gina Harlow
JACKET WEATHER
“When Shadows Move” Lp (SS 09)
“For kids in the 1960s, the moment of inspiration was when they heard The Beatles for the first time,” Jacket
Weather frontman Timothy Gassen says.  “For me, when I heard Kraftwerk’s ‘Computer Love’ for the first
time in 1981,I was hooked on making pop sounds with synths.”
Gassen formed the pioneering minimalist-electro-wave act Jacket Weather in 1982, mixing dual Casiotone
keyboards, real bass and drums — with the desolate imagery of the Arizona desert. “I loved the contrast of
the synths with human percussion and the sensual backdrop of the desert,” Gassen adds. “We thought the
tension of my cold, distant vocals and synths with the bombastic rock rhythm section made our sound
unique.”
Described in their day as a cross between Joy Division and Young Marble Giants, with some Wall Of Voodoo
mixed in, Jacket Weather etched their own minimalist sound. Staccato, expressionistic vocals accent the
snake-like mingling of the Casiotones, while a steady dance pulse backs the eerie mixture. Equally
enraptured with Euro-synth, English post-punk and Los Angeles punk-wave, Jacket Weather foundinspiration from such opposites as Our Daughter’s Wedding to the Suburban Lawns for their Casiotone
symphonies.
The band recorded a cassette album in 1982, released a six-song vinyl EP in 1983 (titled “When Shadows
Move”) and also recorded a complete album that remained unreleased — until now.
Original session producer Gassen (who has gone on to a career in indie rock and film) recently found all the
master tapes — from early demos, to the EP tapes, to the unreleased album — and re-mastered and
assembled them all into the collection that has been unheard for 30 years.
It’s the dark and mysterious (Casio) tones of Jacket Weather that finally take center stage, three decades
since they first drifted through the Arizona night.
SYSTEM 56 ‘s/t’ Lp (SS 010)
System 56 was a band from Cleveland, Ohio, formed by Steve Simenic, in 1981-82. The group drew much of
its early inspiration from artists such as Ultravox, BeBop Deluxe, Simple Minds, Gary Numan and the Cars,
featuring a stripped-down type of aesthetic, which blended edgy guitar riffs against a minimal synth
backdrop, and fueled by a driving rhythm section. The band was committed primarily to crafting and
recording their music in a small home studio setting, and in early 1982, released their first single – Metro-
Metro b/w In the Old World. Two live gigs followed, when shortly thereafter, the band had an internal split,
leaving Vince Scafiti and Steve Simenic to carry on by themselves, in the interim.
Later, that same year, another release followed - Beyond the Parade - a 6-song EP, which garnered some
critical acclaim, as well as both college and commercial support, on local Cleveland airwaves. As the group
had been reduced to just a two-piece, there were no live performances, with the band choosing instead, to
continue to recruit replacement members, and move forward with additional recording projects.
In 1983, synthesist Paul Teagle joined the band, shortly after which, they released their second single – Life
on a Cool Curve b/w The Other Side of Science. The resulting music was both more accessible, as well as
more layered and nuanced, further embellishing its minimal sophistication, with guest saxophonist, Phil
Capone, providing a smoky ambiance on the more ethereal b-side. The single garnered extensive airplay on
Cleveland airwaves, as well as a number of underground stations outside the local area, while positive
reviews continued to roll in. As 1984 arrived, the band added a new bass player, Tom Lash, to its lineup, and
restored the group to its original form. While the band continued to focus on recording and releasing its third
single – A Man Needs a Motor b/w Shapes of Things – they now began rehearsing for some live
performances. With the new single getting strong local airplay, the band made its Cleveland debut on
September 28th at the Phantasy Theater, playing to a sellout 1000-seat venue. A second synth player,
Dennis Richie, also augmented the live lineup. Two more shows followed later in that year, at the Phantasy
Niteclub, and shortly thereafter, the group dissolved.
DECA “Modulectron” Lp (SS 011)
Deca's is a project of Federico De Caroli's, started in the early Eighties. He moved from the spacey and
melodic style influenced by Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, Cosmic Couriers to experimental sound,
involving elements of industrial, noise, "musique concrete" and even Dark Ambient. 
His extensive discography ( vinyls, tapes and cd’s ) is the representation of his creative genius that makes
Deca one of most interesting musicians in the world of electronic music.  
"Modulectron" is an anthology of unreleased material recorded between 1984-1986, a small jewel of Italian
electronic music of the ‘golden age’. 
As he says: “The artistic soul of a musician never dies, it hardly loses its spirit, actually, it is quite the
contrary, and it can only grow with time: you can find new forms of inspiration, try new musical routes, mix
new and old sounds together. The tracks of ‘Modulectron’ still feature the sound of my first pioneering tape
recordings of 25 years ago”. Order this record right now!!! Only 400 copies available!!!!
SCORTILLA ' FAHRENHEIT 451 ' Lp (SS07)
The Scortilla were formed in 1979, influenced by DEVO, punk and early wave bands.They only 'hit' was
Fahrenheit 451, released on major label in 1984. Architects of live act with a great sound and visual impact
have played around Italy to the hideouts of the underground music by establishing their headquarters at the
Psycho Club of Genoa, the cradle of true art rock scene of that period. Intransigent about their artistic
choices, the band closed their career after the only vinyl release. This anthology collects the recordings of
the first period of the band, absolutely amazing material. Tracks like "Military rendez-vous", "Chanson de non
amour", "Dresden", "Climax", "ADA", "Mirror Dance", "Inside" and also their 'hit Fahrenheit 451, published by
the WEA in the summer of 1984, are on this vinyl. For all those that consider Gaznevada and italian 'new
wave' at the same level of euro stuff, this is a record that consume up to pulverize! Absolute masterpiece!
FRIGIDAIRE TANGO 'THE COCK/DEMOS' Lp (SS08)
July 1977 Carlo Casale and Stefano Dal Col, beginning a musical collaboration and founded the Outkids,
oneof the first Italian punk rock formations. After a series of concerts in the local area, training expands with
thearrival of Marco Brenda, keyboardist, which gives the band a sound more personal and in short,
scramblingtheir background, become one of the new wave band of the peninsula most appreciated . With the
name ofFrigidaire Tango, in 1980 they recorded their first LP 'The Cock', a small masterpiece that was
inserted inSeptember 2010 by the French magazine Tsugi between 100 LP fundamental least-known rock. In early1983, with the addition of a second keyboardist, the band returned to the studio and a self-produced
mini-LPtitled 'Russian Dolls', one of the 'classics' of the new Italian rock of the period. At the same time the
bandwas on tour with The Sound in Italy. In mid-1986, at the height of their popularity, after being invited for a series of concerts at the Biennale in Barcelona, the band split-up. This unique collection contains a series of
unreleased sessions of the period of 'The Cock', a unique opportunity to know the BEST Italian new wave
band of the 80's!!
SPIKE 'YEAH YEAH... BABY!' Lp (RUR 068)
Rave Up has finally discovered the legendary Eliot 'Spike' Kagan 1973 tapes! Yeah, the king of basament
rock started their career looong time ago, and this is the proof!!! Pure garage demented lo-fi rockn'roll at the
same lavel of the garage rock masterpiece 'Kings of the Basement' album.
Sloppy sound in the tradition of the rebellious rock'n' roll of the 60's!
Great artwork. A "must have" for any punk and garage fan!!!
"We're the Penetrators, we don't fuck around...Cause we're the number one band in this town!"
THE STILETTOS 'PUNK TRAMPOLINE' Lp (RUR 069)
The Stillettos were born out of the back room of Max’s Kansas City in the late sixties when, if you could get
into the back room, you would be in the company of Andy Warhol and His Superstars, up and coming actors
Al Pacino, Sly Stallone and Robert DeNiro, graced by the presence of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin , The
Stones and even an occasional night with Dali or Fellini holding court at the round table. Before the Sixties
waned artists and freaks clawed their way to be in Warhol movies and some found themselves in Bizarre
plays of Jackie Curtis appearing at La Mama Theater which turned out to be the seeds that grew the New
York Punk scene. Jackie’s “Femme Fatale or the Three faces of Gloria” brought together Jayne County, Patti
Smith, Penny Arcade, The Winbrandt Brothers and Elda Stilletto, to act as the music scene began to explode
with the Glitter and Glam of The New York Dolls, Eric Emerson and the Magic Tramps and KISS.
In 1971 Elda formed Holly Woodlawn’s Pure Garbage - she sold her Andy Warhol cow to get a loft to live and
rehearse in. She brought the show to the stage of New York’s top cabaret club Reno Sweeney’s, In 1973
bent on having a rock band, Elda left Holly to pursue the cabaret she was meant to do and recruited
a Max’s Kansas City waitress who said she could sing, Debbie Harry. The Stillettos were one of CBGB’s first
premiere acts billed with Television, The Ramones and Patti Smith. The fifteen year career of the Stillettos
became a revolving door of some of New York’s most talented musicians: with Elda at the helm. And at any
time you could find Sylvain Sylvain, Johnny Thunders, Lenny Kaye, Robert Fripp, Genya Raven, or Rick
Danko sitting in for a song. On this album your ears will be candied with the sounds of Cheetah Chrome
(Guitarist for the Dead Boys), Walter Lure, Billy Rath, (both of JT’s Heartbreakers) Tish and Snooky, (The
Sick F**ks) Rick Derringer, Leon Neon and many others who believed in the talent and writing Elda Stilletto
brought to the New York Scene.
Limited edition of 400 copies of this grain of punk history!!!!!!!!!!!!


DIAFRAMMA 'DEMOS 1982' Lp (SS 05)
Diaframma were the best italian post punk band of the early 80's. They came from Florence, the city that

was the most important center of new wave music of the period (see bands like Litfiba, Pankow, Neon,
Moda, Polyactive, Karnak and many others...). In the wake of the English decadent dark-rock, strongly
influenced by Joy Division, in 1982 they recorded their first single, "Pioggia/Illusione Ottica" (Italian Records)
. The beautiful lyrics of the poet/guitarist Federico Fiumani push the group among the most popular on theitalian scene of the time. Followed by the split 7", "Circuito Chiuso" (Free/Industrie Discografiche Lacerba-
1982) and the Mlp "Altrove" (Contempo-1983), which confirm the remarkable ability of the quartet (Gianni
Cicchi on drums, Leandro Cicchi on bass, Federico Fiumani on guitar and Nicola Vannini on vocals ).
After several performances in clubs in the main italian venues, often together with Litfiba, and the removal
of Vannini (replaced by Miro Sassolini), Diaframma recorded, in 1984 for the independent label IRA, 'Siberia',
an album that sold 50,000 copies, a huge sales success for the band that continue to play, with various
changing of music styles and line-up 'til now.
This anthology contains different studio versions of their most famous tracks of the early days. If you are a
fan of early UK post punk, you will be suprised to listen this AMAZING italian underground band. Limited
edition to 500 copies + original 1982 poster of the band!!!!

EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTION!
AMIN PECK 'ESSENTIAL TRAX' Lp
Like most ’80s electronic bands, Amin-Peck walked a fine line between disco and minimal wave throughout

the course of the early 1980s, oftentimes incorporating shameless pop melodies and avant-garde leanings.
Amin Peck were an italian band leaded by Giorgio Fioroni (aka George Fyron, arrangements, production,
vocals) with Leonard Parker (arrangments, keyboards) and Max Marne (production). Incredible but true,
Amin Peck started as 'hard rock' guitar band in the 70's...there are some tracks also on You Tube before
became one of the best examples of italo disco.
Well, finally an album that contains their best tracks for your 'italo party' at home!
If you like "Italo disco" or "minimal synth" this record it will be a 'must'! Get it!!!!
NUVO WEST 'S/T' Lp (SS02)
Hailing from the ashes of Phoenix legends of THE RED SQUARES, after their disbanding in the winter of
1983, Sonic Mike Stephens (lead vocals and guitar) and the other guitarist and keyboard player Roger Lee
Chavous decided to start another band. They met bass player Walter Charchuck, and than started kicking
around a crazy idea of combing Country with Synth/Punk material using a shitty drum machine. Greg David,
the drummer, combined both drum machine and electronic drums. The plan was to dress like a new age
cowboys, as all of them were from Arizona. Unlike some of the local Rock groups, NUVO WEST took a
decidedly different approach to their style of playing. Art galleries like the Awun House, hosted basement
parties with the band that people were taking notice of. Opening for everyone from the Del Fuegos to
buddies Rank N File, Nuvo worked their tails off. Enter buddy/studio wiz, Fred North. Using Sonic Mike’s
practice studio, Fred set up his TASCAM 4 track and recorded the now sought after “Scary” EP. Included on the record were original songs written by Fred with a very heavy western influence, aka “Apache” and
originals written by Sonic and Wally. Debuting the EP at a trendy “Alternative” club in Scottsdale, the band
combined fence post props with several TVs playing homemade videos, including violent car crashes and
porn. The audience loved it. The EP sold well locally, and the boys went out to tour in a limited fashion.
In 1984, the band recorded their biggest album to date, “Twankin”, a word the band loved. Gone “were the
keys/synth, and the look turned to jeans, large cowboy hats and nudie shirts. Released on cassette,
“Twankin” out sold the previous EP twice over..
THE STREETKIDZ 'LOOKING FOR A THRILL' (RUR 065) Lp
The Streetkidz were a bunch of NYC rockers that released only one rare EP in 1981 with three tracks (Go To
School /Easy Way Out // In The I.R.A.) on their own label (C.K.). Their sound is a mix of punk and hard rock
in the same vein of many NYC band of the period.The MC5, Stooges, NY Dolls, and the punk explosion of
the mid to late 1970s were the main inluences of the band that was quite popular at Max's Kansas City and
CBGB. This anthology contains ALL STUDIO MATERIAL, and it will be a 'must' for every fan of Dictators and
original NYC punk rock! Dig it fast!!!!THE NAMES 'YOUNG ROMANTICS' (RUR 066) Lp
Punk Rock hit Phoenix, Arizona in a slow and violent way. The dirt brain mentality of "rock" fans in the area
showed resistance to any new musical group that didn't conform to the model.Finally, after a Ramones show
in town, four young guys decided starting to play punk rock: The Names were born!
The band and headed into the studio. Songs like 'Young Romantics', 'Love/Hate', and the anthem 'I Don't
Like Radio' gathered the band airplay on the AM radio station K-15. Bands such as the Rubber City Rebels,
the Gears and many others came through the area and The Names opened for most of them. The last show
of the band was on New Years 1980. The next day, the band became Red Squares, that recorded the
amazing 7” 'Modern Roll/Time Change' (see American Lost Punk Rock Nuggets # 25). All studio tracks + 4
live cuts!
THE PROJECTIONS 'HYPERACTIVE' (EP 7" RUG 04)
Mario Micheli (bass, vocals and littering), Tony Samuels (drums) and Johnny Spark (known outside of Detroit
music circles as John Micheli, guitars, vocals and attitude) were The Projections, a punk/power
pop/detroit/garage band formed in Detroit in the early 80s. In March of 1982, the band recorded their 7"
'Hyperactive/Individual', a solid punk wave two sider now really collectable. This EP contains their original
recordings, the re-mastered 2009 versions and one great unreleased original tune!
ED DAVIS BAND ‘KEITH RICHARD’S DEAD’ LP (RUR 061)
Guitarists Mike Enright and Byron Stevens met drummer Curt Gary at the University of Cincinnati in the early
‘70s. By 1975 they were jamming together, abusing controlled substances, and listening closely to Lee Perry,
Pere Ubu, and the singles coming out of New York and London. A visit to a Bloomington, Indiana, basement
to see MX-80 Sound was pivotal, as were debut LPs from The Ramones and The Patti Smith Group.
In the winter of 1976, local guerilla art collective We're Just Like You put on a show at the university and
needed a band. With the addition of Mike’s high-school friend Bob Cotter on bass and a few weeks of
rehearsals, Mike, Curt, and Byron formed Ed Davis, a name chosen because it meant nothing and revealed
nothing. The group stayed together after the show and slowly built a following in Cincinnati clubs, eventually
playing a series of legendary parties in their downtown loft.
In '78 the band cut a single, played on WAIF-FM, opened for The Patti Smith Group at Bogart's, and lost
guitarist Byron, who moved to NYC. Ed soldiered on for another year with new vocalist and pianist Fran
Slater; bassist Bob switched to guitar; and Mike picked up the bass. Their last show, at the 5th Street loft
backed by the Shake It label’s legendary The Customs, was in June of 1979.
THE ALLIES / THE SAUCERS ‘EAST BAY PUNKS-FROM THE STREETS OF BERKELEY 1978-81’ LP (RUR 062)
Disillusionment with the "mellow 70's" was turning to rage as the US waged a proxy war in Central America ,
and San Francisco ignited into fiery riots after the assassination of its mayor and first openly gay city council
member. The Saucers reflected these times with caustic humor and impassioned social commentary.
In 1980, the band , after the departure of first keyboard player, Joey Michaels, renamed themselves The
Allies, adding dynamic lead guitarist Craig Magee, formerly with Dyan Diamond (Runaways). With the
addition of Magee, the band pivoted from the Saucers' Farfisa-dominated garage punk to a more muscular,
guitar-driven sound. Local music producer and KALX engineer Terry Hammer worked behind the scenes to
get both bands into the studio, with varied results, on display here. He also recorded a number of live shows
for the two groups, and it's mostly thanks to his efforts that this music survives today. After the definitive
splitM of the band, the drummer Jake Smith went on to join hardcore punk band Crucifix, played in an early
version of Faith No More.
THE PLOD ‘NEO CITY’ LP (EGS 02)
"The Mighty Plod" were formed in May 1972 by Colchester Musician Steve Greenfield. The original line-up
was Steve Greenfield - Rhythm Guitar and vocals, Carl Szymanski - bass, Carl Seager - Lead guitar, and
Terry Lloyd – drums, later replaced with Michael Natkanski. Their music was based on glam rocks hits of the
day such as Slade and Sweet, and a selection of rock'n'roll standards like 'Johnny B. Goode' and 'Shakin' all
over' done in a fast thrash style. In 1975 the band recorded five studio tracks including the amazing ‘Neo
City’. The Mighty Plod turned up again in a feature on lost treasures from the Glam Rock era, the most
important bands that got away, in the January 2002 ‘Record Collector’. As a result of this In March 2003
RPM records released the ‘classic’ compilation CD ‘Velvet Tinmine’, that includes also the Plod.
