Dismissed by critics, shunned by historians, reviled by some, The Troggs were the first primal punk antidote to a bourgeois pop scene with too many teenage idols. Their primitive pop sensibility was a major influence on the '70s punk movement, particularly the Ramones, Iggy Pop, MC5, Sex Pistols, and R.E.M. who've cited The Troggs as a major influence. In 1977, the Beatles and the Stones were dismissed by the punks while the Troggs were embraced. Between their hits "Wild Thing", "With A Girl Like You", and "Love Is All Around", the Troggs made 12 appearances for the BBC courtesy of host Brian Matthew. Stand aside for a defining chapter in British rock as we unearth the raw Neanderthal sound of the Troggs live at the BBC from May 1967 to September 1968. Stunningly re-mastered here from the original transcription discs, with background liners, original interviews, anecdotes, and a plethora of rare original memorabilia. First time on vinyl. 180 gram, blue vinyl; hand-numbered, fold over sleeve with insert; edition of 1000.
