Austin's The Explosives (who would go on to be Roky Erickson's backing band) lived up to their name in the late 70s and early 80s, packing more power than their so-called punk rock peers.

That's because they were not actually punk rockers themselves. Like Elvis Costello (saddled with the same inappropriate tag at the time), they played something that had been out of fashion for a while, music of rhythm with a jangly melody, something called "rock and roll".

This is a facsimile reissue of their blasting 1979 debut.
