DJ Sophisticated Savage's compilation 'Buzzsaw Joint: Sophisticated Savage - Cut 5' is available here on LP.
Buzzsaw Joint was born of a club offering Londoners the chance to revel in the sounds of good ol' trashy rock n' roll in all its vintage vinyl forms. Club top-cat, Fritz, then took the primitive buzzsaw sounds online with a series of savage Mixcloud mixes created by record fiends from all over the globe. Now, the high-octane energy of Buzzsaw Joint has manifested into the physical form with a run of compilations on Stag-O-Lee. Get your ears around the wild n' weird sounds of the extraordinary and inimitable Buzzsaw Joint! There's something goin' on down here in these parts. It's put a buzzing in my head, a thumping in my heart. Buzzsaw Joint is back with a fifth cut and this time a Swedish selector wields the blade. DJ Sophisticated Savage first began sharing his wares in a Stockholm Tiki bar, which explains the raft of exotic sounds found on this compilation. But that's not all, add rock, roll, R&B and soul to the list. What's consistent from start to finish is the quality and obscurity of the selections. Open your ears wide and enjoy the ride. 16 tracks recorded between 1957-1962. Features Bill Springer, Stick Evans, Herb Zane, The Starfires, The Kingston Trio, The Don Schraier Rocktet, The Metallics, Blues Blenders, Jimmy Uke and his Islanders, The Demons, Jimmie Raye, Doodie Woo, Melvin Smith, Rhythmaires, Ray Johnson, and The Scholars.
