1 - GEARS, THE - DON'T BE AFRAID TO POGO - (DVD) 
WONDERCAP


This feature length documentary tells the story of 1970's punk band The Gears - in their own words. Rising as young boys and friends in North East Los Angeles these musicians self styled an infectious brand of surf/rockabilly/punk, which they still play today. "Don't Be Afraid To Pogo" chronicles singer Axxel G. Reese and The Gears' history in amazing detail, while allowing their stream-of-consciousness interviews to play out. Great archival footage and photos of this overlooked band, includes a wide variety of neighborhood contributors along the way- a rare event in the rock doc genre. Interviews with Freddy Cannon (Legendary rock singer), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Johnny Stingray (The Controllers/Kaos), Billy Bones (The Skulls), Steve Metz (Mad Society), Miss Mercy (GTO's), and East L.A. born artist Richard Duardo and watch for snippets of animation from low brow genius Kalynn Campbell. Heartfelt and respectful. Don't miss it.

3 - GEARS, THE - LET'S GO TO THE BEACH - (7") 
MUNSTER


Facsimile reissue of the debut 7" by legendary Los Angeles punk rockers The Gears, originally released in 1979.

4 - GEARS, THE - MOVIN' - (7") 
WONDERCAP


"Keep Movin'" is a driving bit of wide-eyed-trucker-high-on-speed r'n'r - a little MC5, some Flamin' Groovies and a touch of Motorhead. Cannon's voice is slightly deeper with age, but his raspy snarl is sharp as ever as he works the band into an Eric Burdon-ish frenzy. The song builds, crashes, builds and crashes again, perfect waves for the punk rock surfer. "Move It On Over," on the other hand, is simple 1-4-5 rock'n'roll performed with the vibrant electricity of an overloading powerstation. Call-and-response lyrics trade with rockabilly licks that pound to a beat that your feet can't resist. No pretentious pseudo-intellectual indie rock garble here - this is pure in-your-face rock'nroll: loud, explosive and fun. Got the 7" blues? Pick this up for an instant cure-all and a pick-me-up that'll last as long as the damn record plays!
