In the days before the mash-up became the purview of every digi-geek, merging two contradictory (but weirdly complementary) styles of music involved intense labour. Witness London's currently-inactive Gabba, who like Dread Zeppelin before them created a fascinating hybrid of two divergent seventies phenomenon, the Ramones and ABBA. While the novelty factor is outta site here - bordering on dinner theater - this out-of-print 1999 record has grown on me over time despite my long-espoused ABBA-ophbia.

MRML is a blog about the devestating effects of culture: music, politics, comics plus etc. blah blah blah. At times MRML will post fine, unpurchasable three-chord obscurica (punk, pop-punk, new wave, mod, power-pop, gospel, reggae, hardcore, rockabilly, folk, country...whatever.) - - - - - - "The otherwise unavailable files in this blog are posted for a limited time and are intended for educational, non-commercial use.
