Die Mummies - Party At Steve's House - Pin-Up Records LP Pin Up 94012.


The most blatant manifestation of the 'Euro Mummies', this LP on Germany's Pin-Up Records has never been released on CD or made available for official download. It's by no means perfect. The band sound bored, louche even, and the choice of covers is as poor as the decision to try to make this sound like a live LP by dubbing in crowd sounds between each track.

The introduction of saxaphone on some tracks provides a new spin on The Mummies' schtick, but it's undermined by the overall laziness of this release. Compare this with Never Been Caught to see what I mean.

Enjoy.
