Exotic Adrian Street and the Pile Drivers

Adrian Street"I can break a door down with one hand behind my back,
I can crush a grizzly till its bones begin to crack,
I eat a dozen T-bones for an early morning snack,
So imagine what I could do to you, Mmmm..."

- Adrian Street

So, you have “Classy” Freddie Blassie’s "Pencil Neck Geeks" on your copy of Dr. Demento’s Greatest Novelty Records Of All Time Volume IV, a scratched up 45 of "The Crusher" by the Novas, you unfortunately still own The Wrestling Album released from WWF in 1985 (with “Mean” Gene singing "Tutti Frutti"), and you have a burned CD loose somewhere in the back of your car’s glove compartment with Kamala the Ugandan Giant singing his Casio keyboard truck-driving love songs, but your rock n’ roll wrestling music collection is still missing one priceless record: a diamond in the rough…the supposed treasure of Oak Island’s Money Pit…Exotic Adrian Street and the Pile DriversShake Wrestle ’N’ Roll album!

Adrian Street, the flamboyant Welsh glam-rock wrestler (who was always accompanied by the lovely Miss Linda), played a villain in the squared circle and all the songs on this record are sung by the Merchant of Menace himself. Ringside rumors claim that Adrian’s costumes were so amazing in the 1970’s, that Elton John, Gary Glitter, and David Bowie copied them.

Have you ever been sitting at a fondue dinner party when you wanted to fold the chair you were sitting onAdrian Street and use it to hit the guy at the end of the table who was trying to pick up on your girlfriend? Play "Mutilation Mambo," "A Sweet Transvestite with a Broken Nose," "The Krippler," and my personal favorite "Breakin’ Bones" at the next cucumber sandwich soiree you are forced to attend and watch the party explode into a true Battle Royal. 

In fact, take this record everywhere you go and you will be sure to make new friends!

Re-released by those super awesome fellas down in Fullerton, Burger Records makes this album available again after 30 years on CD and blood-splattered colored vinyl!
