ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TVH comes to your planet with a message - and a warning: People of Earth: you've lost the plot. Your taste in music stinks. Stop now before it's too late. Your biggest selling records are by latex-coated robots dancing in vacant lockstep to the bleeping and clanking of giant computers. Your so-called 'Alternative' and 'Indie' Rock is slack and feeble. Most of the rest: reheated leftovers, dumbed down and diluted to nothing. Your vaunted Punk Rock is nostalgic novelty music, about as relevant and dangerous as Dixieland Jazz. Rock'n'Roll -- once your deadliest weapon -- is detected as only a dim pulse by even our most powerful scanners; a secret language known and understood by a few last members of your dying species. End of message.
Johnny Strike speaks the secret language. He speaks it fluently. Back in '76 he led CRIME: San Francisco's First & Only Rock'n'Roll Band, and one of the few groups of their era to tap the pure, vital source. Too wild for the radio, the few records they left behind have a raw potency that few others can lay claim to. Now, along with bassplayer Jimmy Crucifix and drummer Biff O'Hara, Johnny Strike is back with TVH. "Hot Wire My Heart" re-ignites the original CRIME fuse, while new sparks blind and fly on explosive NOW creations like "Black Light", "Yo! Slim Fats" and "Tibetan Head". NIGHT RAID ON LISBON STREET brings you haunted, hunted tales from deserted towns, dark nightclubs, dank gutters, dusty crossroads, and the pits of deep, forgotten wells -- all rigged up to the primal Rock'n'Roll pulsebeat. Listen, learn the language, and maybe you can save your planet.

Mike Stax, Ugly Things Magazine June 2002
