Compilation of Previously Released Limited Edition Tapes VAGUESS (pronounced "Vegas") is the moniker of rock and roll nobody Vinny Vaguess.

It's a band that's bound to elicit a lot of those "Crossed With" declarations. Like, "Man, they sound like The Seeds.crossed with The Reatards," or "Dude, they're basically The Mummies.crossed with The Vibrators," but let's just put all that bullshit to bed and get down to why Vinny Vaguess' songs have people reaching for their garage rock thesauruses.

Since self-releasing a cassette called Back Off Warchild in 2012 (complete with a killer Xeroxed Swayze on the cover) and playing a triple-digit number of shows around the greater Los Angeles area, VAGUESS has tapped into punk rock at it's most elemental: fiery riffs, wiry attitude, and raw power with a prankster's sneer.

Even underneath the muffling hum of a Tascam 4-track recorder, the rhythm section is a rolling thunderhead and the firecracker riffs smoke.

The Bodhi Collection compiles the snottiest, loudest gems from Vinny's cassettes, all perversely remastered so that we don't get sued for frying your stereo.

Even though these two-minute nuggets are caked with bonehead rude and crackling distortion, Vinny's no slouch when it comes to songwriting and recording.
