|LP’s for Tip, the last one in 69, called “Bad, Bad World” didn’t sound much like the Tonics anymore. Subtitled “Ravers Going Underground”, this obviously was a product of the Hamburg cheapo mafia, a bunch of Rattles, German Bonds and Wonderland musicians, who used to make some extra bread with exploitation classics like Hell Preachers Inc. or Bokaj Retsiem. “We’ve Got Too Much” is a typical Herbert Hildebrandt production (Ex-Rattle and somekind of a German Kim Fowley). No one could rip off a Kinks-riff like the Kinks, but The Ravers came close, although brother Ray would have frowned a bit upon using terms like chicken fucker.
The Rocking Jailmen’s nasty girlie-put-down “Over” was one of last volume’s highlights and caused hectic action among collectors. “Give Me A Chance” is another cork screw through your brain from the same Eurex-EP. Sneaking in rather than blowing the door down this time, but the Jailmen manage to do the trick witha sinister ballad just as well.
