Robert Plant, Technobilly

Chuck Eddy, Creem, June 1988

A FEW MONTHS back, Robert Plant walked into Atlantic Records' London offices and played 'Scream', by Ralph Nielsen & The Chancellors. Now, I dunno if you've ever heard 'Scream', but it's on Crypt Records' Back From The Grave, Vol. 2 garage compilation, and trust me when I say it rages nastily – five adolescent Jersey Link Wray fans in shiny suits waxed it on Route 1 not far from Princeton in the summer of '62.
