G.I. - Six On One Disc

We've discussed the Mod Revival Revival here before. The movement, worthy of a single CD Nuggets-styled compilation, bridged the gap between the mid nineties garage rock revivalists and the pop-punk kids. G.I Productions as label helped this along by comps like the retro-centric Six On A Disc. This disc gathered the mid-nineties indie strains of power-pop (the Decibels, "Radio") , garage rock (the Peeches, "Well Worth Talkin' About"), pop-punk (the Bomb Bassetts,"Take a Trip") and mod (the Gain, "She Said") together. Since it's a sampler (based on the labels' early release), this collection is strong and filler-free.

This compilation was orignally posted on the first incanation of the mighty Twilight Zone (the grandaddy of obscure music blogs) and Blogmaster RYP gave his blessing to re-post it here.


  1. great blog! please check out or maybe add this to your links:

    we share same interest in music. thanks and keep up the good work!

  2. That Decibel's song is great but does no one understand what dB's stands for? I mean they even have an album title that explains the situation!

    Also, I have yet to hear a bad cover of "She Said She Said". Please don't find one.

  3. Love this blog. But I wanted to contact the guy who runs it with a question and I don't see an e-mail anywhere. Can that person contact me at

    My name is Ava and I'm the blog moderator for a site called Jemsite, which is about guitars and music.


  4. Ah the dB's vs. the Decibels, two fine underloved power-pop bands. Maybe the Decibels album could've been called "Abbreviated as dB's"
