Raw Collection is an odds 'n' sods collection that Half A Mind - The Bellrays - Raw Collection up random BellRays vinyl and comp tracks from through It Save A Prayer - Duran Duran - Rio from the street-level soul of "You're Sorry Now" to a fabulously dirty cover of the Saints ' "Nights in Venice," and that's only the first two tracks!
They might know that their cross-breeding of soul and punk is not necessarily original, and at times can be a little amateurish. But since when has this music asked for anything more than a backbeat, bassline, and some catch phrases to sing or shout along to? And besides, there's a sense of humor here, too. The funky stroll of "Mother Pinball" -- with its chorus of "Do the pinball, baby! One listen to the tweeter-ripping screed "Say What You Mean" will kill off that vibe toot suite.
It features some of Kekaula 's best Tina Turner meets Joan Jett vocalisms, there are some classic "hey! When everything drops out and Kekaula screams, "Getting mighty tired of lookin' for something," that's when most listeners will realize what they've just found, and start trying to grow an afro to accessorize the motorcycle jacket.
