THE GEARS "Four On The Floor" 10" EP (Wonder Cap)


The Gears were formed in 1978, the heyday of Los Angeles punk, when two childhood buddies from the Glassell Park neighborhood of LA - singer Axxel G. Reese and drummer Dave Drive - joined forces. They created the "punk surfabilly" sound after seeing the early Hollywood punk bands while being influenced by other SoCal cultures. The band's recorded tour de force was the live album "Rockin' at Ground Zero." Shortly after this epic live recording in 1982, the Gears' guitarist Kidd Spike angrily smashed his ax to smithereens mid-set at the Starwood and the Gears were done. Four On The Floor is as fun, loose, and roots-infused as the LP The Gears left off with, 1980’s Rockin’ at Ground Zero. Recorded in 2003 but only released now three new originals (plus a wonderfully punked-up cover of Chuck Berry’s 1958 #2 “Sweet Little Sixteen*”) and could serve as bonus tracks on a Rockin’ reissue without complaint.
