"The ultimate punk rock ’n’ roll anthology - designed as an antidote for the current crop of pre-processed music clogging up chartdom!"

  -- Kerrang!

13 Volumes of Pure

FINALLY! A compliation series that accurately represents today's underground Rock & Roll scene. In the grand tradition of the Pebbles and Nuggets compilation series, "A Fistful Of Rock & Roll" features some of the finest music, influential artwork by today's most highly adorned poster artists, extensive liner notes, and much more!

A Fistful of Rock N' Roll is the brainchild of Electric Frankenstein's Sal Canzonieri, who, after many requests from bands, fans, and the music press, has set out on a project so ambitious that it can only be compared to the legendary Pebbles and Nuggets series; a series so vast that it will eventually document every great garage band performing today. The series, currently consisting of 13 volumes in all, also includes amazing artwork by some of today's best poster artists.

The A Fistful of Rock & Roll compilations series has been receiving international acclaim for its exciting High Energy Punk Rock and Roll, done with the all the great intensity of such bands as the Stooges, MC5, Dead Boys, NY Dolls,  Ramones,
Sex Pistols, Damned, Black Flag, Misfits, AC/DC, Kiss, Cheap Trick, Aerosmith, Motorhead, and other favorites.

Chornicling and shaping the second Garage Rock wave as it happens - A Fistful of Rock & Roll!

The compilation series covers a real movement, a working-man’s answer to what is missing from popular music in the world today; straight-up, raw, in-your-face, combustible Rock ‘N’ Roll.  The A Fistful of Rock & Roll series simply has no equal.

Each volume comes with a thorough music essay about each decade in Rock, from the 1950s to Now, tracing the history and development of Rock & Roll from its roots to its later mainstream status to its current underground state of affairs that's worth the price of admission alone, throughly researched and carefully written by various writers, such as Sal Canzonieri,  Howie Pyro, Joe Selby, Bryan Swirsky, John Mark King, Tim Stegal, and others.

The cover art alone is a who's who in the modern art world, which many of them consider one of their best works ever.  All of them feature the fantastic work of such artists as Alan Forbes,  Johnny Ace, Dirty Donny, Jeff Gaither, Spine, Marco Almera, Merinuk, Drazen, Big Tony O' Farrell, and many more!

Can You imagine a world without Elvis or Chuck Berry or Led Zepplin or AC/DC or Kiss or the Dead Boys or the Ramones? Imagine if Motorhead or Iggy & The Stooges  or The Sex Pistols never existed! Well, that's what the world would be like without the greatness of Rock & Roll.  These bands on A Fistful of Rock & Roll are making history in our time in their fantastic efforts to KEEP ROCK & ROLL ALIVE!

What do you get when you cross the wild intensity of Punk Rock with the power chords of Hard Rock with the melodic music of 60s Garage Rock? Curious? That's the sound of today's High Energy Rock & Roll! These bands took the best parts of the past classic Real Rock & Roll sounds and fused them with the raw power and burning fury of Punk Rock creating the most instense High Energy Punk Rock & Roll ever made.

You don’t have to wait too long to experience it. It’s all here! An amazing collection of exciting, fast paced, melodic, and energetic Real Rock & Roll anthems.

 A Fistful of Rock & Roll is the most exciting High Energy Rock & Roll compilation series ever!

"Join the new rock revolution! All over the world, real rock and roll is coming out with a vengeance! Hundreds of new bands, packed clubs, tons of press, screaming fanatics is all happening NOW! Hear why Kerrang! says the Fistful of RnR series is "The ultimate punk rock and roll anthology, designed as an antidote for the current crop of pre-processed music clogging up chartdom!" This is real rock and roll. That kind of music that juvenile delinquents are spawned from, rumbles are fought over and to, hot rods are gassed up to and cool people have sex to...!"

"A Fistful of Rock n' Roll provides you with everything you need. It provides you with the greatest underground rock, a reason to live, and the coolest fucking artwork out there. All in all, "A Fistful of Rock n' Roll" is an excellent idea. This set just spells FUN... with capital letters!."

"Rock N Roll aint noise pollution, so they say,
Like it says in the inner notes by Bryan Swirsky " Looking at the official record, today's red blooded Blink 182 loving teenagers could easily be forgiven for believing that punk's tombstone was carved in 1980, but nothing could be further than the truth".
This is what should be being called punk rock, these bands aren't commercial, these bands are hardly known but they still go out there and rock the place. Before listening I looked at the list of bands and had never heard of half of them, listen to the cd and you wanna hear more. This ones for the Sunday arvo in the beer garden playing pool with your mates and a slab by your side. Put aside your latest Blink and Limp Bizkit cds, grab this one and realise what punk rock really is.
