Heads Up for 53
THE recordings that made Three Blue Teardrops reputation as the baddest, grittiest, nitro-fueled Rockabilly bastards straight outta the Rustbelt! This collection of recordings has an overly complicated and convoluted history, first being self-released 1n 1992 as 'Heads Up! For 53 Here Comes... Three Blue Teardrops!' Later the band signed a deal with London based Psychobilly label Nervous Records & re-recorded 8 of these early tracks which came out in 1993 as part of the 'One Part Fist' CD. The band then signed a deal with Florida based Teen Rebel Records in 1994 and released most of these American tracks in this collection on the'(Stiletto) Poised In Hate' CD. After the label folded in 1998, these recordings became unavailable and increasingly rare to the point used copies were sold and ridiculously high prices and bootleg copies were being sold in far flung places like Los Angeles and Germany. Finally the band got pissed off enough to reissue it themselves. So... here you have it: The OFFICIALLY sanctioned, Lo-Fidelity, 4 and 8 track early complete recordings of THREE BLUE TEARDROPS, all recorded by engineer and rock scene stalwart Chuck Uchida at his Attica Studio in the heady early days of the Wicker Park rock scene of Chicago, Illinois in 1991-1994. EVERY track from the band's original cassette and Teen Rebel release is contained here including outtakes, alternate takes and some shit that should probably never see the light of day. Enjoy this document of some classic early American raw Garage Punk-Rockabilly and Psychobilly from one of the United States earliest purveyors of this exciting genre!
