THE UNTAMED YOUTH (AN INVITATION TO PLANET MACE WITH)
The Untamed Youth were a band from Columbia Missouri who I think formed some time around the later half of the eighties . They played great surf and frat style rock and roll mixed with great covers . I'm not sure if their still around or not . I was lucky enough to see them live once, and I have to tell you, they were a really fun band to see live. I really enjoyed myself that night . Sorry for the cover but I bought this as a promo . I love the Gary Lewis cover on here . An Invention to Planet Mace is named after Untamed Youth bassist and, according to the liner notes, King of Men Steve Mace. The Untamed Youth managed to channel the original charge they absorbed from listening to rockabilly, surf, and '60s punk records and spit it back out with vigor and unabashed humor. Highlights include the twangy guitar/ Farfisa organ, hully gully injected "Without a Word of Warning," "Two Wheel Show Stopper," "Fire Breathin 32," and "Mailbox Jamboree" (in which the joys of mailbox smashing are explored,) a swipe at Billy Childish on "I'm More Punk Than You!," the gravelly vocal ranting on "Beer Belly Baby" and "Beer Bust Blues pt 2," and instrumental Watusi mayhem of "Ghost Wave," "Scramble,r" and "Jet's Julep."

Welcome to Shotgun Solution.
I use this Blog to share my passion for records, and underground music. If your not into having your record featured here, or if you just want to contact me, you can do so here.
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
Records I'm Looking For
Here's a few records I wouldn't mind adding to my collection; some rare, some not so rare. Please click on the Records link to see them. If you have an extra copy to sell me or maybe even trade; I would love to hear from you. Maybe you can even point me in the direction of someone who may have a copy to sell. I would prefer to "buy"; although I may still have a few things I might be willing to part with; my collection is pretty condensed these days..
