"War Extention is proud to announce the vinyl re-issue of "Rok y Roll" by Vic Serf & The Villains originally released by the It's War Boys label on cassette in 1982. Musicians on the album comprised Vic Serf, Cathy Spermwrecker, Rita Chulo and Larry O'Houlihan along with guest appearances from Ron Dealo, Lepke B. and Sara Fancy. The recording is situated in a particularly fervent and inventive period of 1980's independent and experimental music making, in which many musicians moved freely between such bands as Milk From Cheltenham, Tesco Bombers, Raincoats, Sarah Fancy, and record labels such as Rough Trade, Y Records, and UMYU in Barcelona. This album, however, was more part of a rampant recording program by Whelton in which he released, with help from many collaborators, an irrepressible number of bands and their albums, such as by the Just Measurers, Milk From Cheltenham, Amos and Sara, The Aaron Tenecil Singers, Klak Klak Moguls as well as Vic Serf & The Villains. "Rok y Roll" imagines an alien race based on a planet far away who have received radio signals beamed from earth in the 50's - rock and roll music. They assume that these signals are the language of the earth people and, inspired to communicate in the spirit of galactic fellowship, concoct a suitable reply. Unfortunately, their culture has no concept of music or song and, as a consequence, their replies are somewhat skewed. "Rok y Roll" is the result." (label info)
