A total Crisco orgy from start to finish.

As any loyal Kicks zine reader can tell ya, the Pacific Northwest had a happenin'music scene a good thirty years before the grunge brigade showed up. Stomp! collects 18 smokin'instrumentals, frat-rockers and soul groovers (and one humorous radio ad for Seattle's Northwest Recorders studio) from 1960-1964, and it's a total Crisco orgy from start to finish. If the Artesians'”Monkey Chain,” the Adventurers'”Mashed Potatoes” and the Frantics'”Cooker” can't get your party started, you'd better call the morgue — ‘cuz you've probably got a living room full of corpses!
