COLOURED BALLS- Ball Power LP
"Coloured Balls were one of the best pure rock n roll groups to emerge from the early 70s Australian scene. Sure, The Saints and Radio Birdman stayed together longer and released a slew of fine albums during the punk era but it was the Coloured Balls who pioneered the proto punk sound earlier in the decade. Their wildcard was Lobby Loyde, Australia's premier guitar hero whose pivotal roles in beat/psych/blues rock groups The Purple Hearts, The Wild Cherries and Billy Thorpe's Aztecs made him a major home-grown star down under. Ball Power is full of raw, hard guitar rock, and proto-punk. It's not only the Coloured Balls's greatest album but also the finest music of Lobby Loyde's long, fabled career." Gatefold sleeve.
