The Apemen - 7+ Inches Of Love CD With Bonus Tracks

Image

If you follow Double Crown on Facebook you probably already saw this, but we're really stoked to announce the release of "7+ Inches Of Love" by The Apemen. It's a reissue of their popular 2000 release that quickly went out of print. We've added 3 extra live tracks as well as "24 Hours From Tulsa", which featured on the That's New Pussycat compilation CD in Italy (which explains the "+" in the CD title).

The physical CD release will be followed by digital release for the first time. The whole CD has been remastered for the best sound quality possible for these tracks.

Tracks: Bajjad - Crunch - Invasion Of The Apemen - Cruisin' - Intoxica - El Tortura - Percolator Stomp - Pogo a Gogo - Toronado - Surf Dracula (45 version) - Baha-Ree-Ba - When Johnny Comes Wreckin' Home - Shake Your Hoover (alternate) - Squad Car - Het Grote Surffeest (live at KFJC) - Miserlou (live at KFJC) - Queen Jacula (live) - Cor Steijn Rides The Wild (live) - Toronado/Bongo Bongo (live) - 24 Hours From Tulsa

ORDER NOW!

Through the end of February you can get this fine disc for a buck off the standard retail price!
