    Info:
    Spock was a short lived band from Rome(Italy)
    this is their only effort on vinyl(needless to say
    it's quite rare!),soon after the recording Spock quitted,
    musically they did not have a clear line(some tracks reminds
    of the AC/DC's hard/Boogie,a couple seems inspired by early
    Van Halen stuff and some others sounds like a mix of Prog/Rock
    and post Punk/New Wave...),there are very few news about them,
    i just found out that the bass player actually is Stefano Pistolini
    who later became a well known writer(he wrote also a
    Nick Drake's biography),journalist and filmmaker,enjoy!!!

    Line up:
    Dontin Dupres - guitar and vocals
    George E.O. - guitar and vocals
    Pistols - bass and vocals
    Andy Devil - drums

    Tracklist:
    Rock&Roll beach
    The Wind/Dream
    American Drive
    Saturday Morning Sun
    Boogie Blend
    Water Water
    More Flesh For Uniforms
    Electric Love
    The Voice
    Lighter

    This is not the same upload as was originally posted above by nonseinormale65.
    That rip was brick-walled & treble-heavy, so i had a go at fixing some of the audio issues that the original rip had, and although i'm no expert at these things, and the end results are still far from perfect, i feel this 'new' upload is a huge improvement in terms of overall listenability.
    There's still a little audio artifacting that i was unable to fix, but overall it's a lot easier on the ear sonically.
    Also included some custom CD art for those that still burn their own CD-r's.
    Hope my efforts enhance your listening pleasure as it's an interesting little record with some unconventional songwriting & rather good guitar playing. At points it sounds to me like Greg Godovitz from GODDO singing with HANOI ROCKS, but for most of it's running time their sound has no easy comparison.
    Grab it now if you want it coz once the link expires i won't be re-uploading.
    Thanks to nonseinormale65 for providing the original rip & i hope he approves of my redux version.

    On my channel a rare promo video:

    https://youtu.be/O_xwNZ4PuUQ


    P.S. a couple of songs (Dream and More flesh...) from this album were included in 1982 in the soundtrack of the Lucio Fulci's movie "The New York Ripper" (Lo Squartatore di New York).

    And finally i got some real names of the line up...

    Dontin Dupres - guitar and vocals - Claudio Natilini
    George E.O. - guitar and vocals - Giorgio Paciotti
    Pistols - bass and vocals - Alessandro Pistolesi
    Andy Devil - drums ???

    That explains it, I'd assumed it wasn't you who ripped it because usually the stuff you rip & post are always consistently of a high standard. Thanks for the chance to hear this obscurity, it contains some interesting music that doesn't fit neatly into any one category and i hope you didn't mind me taking the liberty of messing with your work.
