FINALLY! A compilation series that accurately represents today's underground Rock & Roll scene. In the grand tradition of the Pebbles and Nuggets compilation series, "A Fistful Of Rock & Roll" features some of the finest music, influential artwork by today's most highly adorned poster artists, extensive liner notes, and much more!
A Fistful of Rock N' Roll is the brainchild of Electric Frankenstein's Sal Canzonieri, who, after many requests from bands, fans, and the music press, has set out on a project so ambitious that it can only be compared to the legendary Pebbles and Nuggets series; a series so vast that it will eventually document every great garage band performing today. The series, currently consisting of 13 volumes in all, also includes amazing artwork by some of today's best poster artists.
The A Fistful of Rock & Roll compilations series has been receiving international acclaim for its exciting High Energy Punk Rock and Roll, done with the all the great intensity of such bands as the Stooges, MC5, Dead Boys, NY Dolls, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Damned, Black Flag, Misfits, AC/DC, Kiss, Cheap Trick, Aerosmith, Motorhead, and other favorites.
Chronicling and shaping the second Garage Rock wave as it happens - A Fistful of Rock & Roll!
The compilation series covers a real movement, a working-man’s answer to what is missing from popular music in the world today; straight-up, raw, in-your-face, combustible Rock ‘N’ Roll. The A Fistful of Rock & Roll series simply has no equal.
