This sticker won The Sticker Of The Year Award,

Below is a recent (Jan 05) E-Mail from Rick Rivets of The New York Dolls, and The Brats. I am deeply flattered as the Dolls were great heroes of mine.
A very battered copy of the STREAK Biog., written by the one and only PETER MEADEN.
The Deram single. A side.
Bang Bang Bullet.
Here's the B side
Black Jack Man
Here are the words, so that you can sing along. Altogether now.....
The four tracks below are from an acetate labelled Monitor Mixes, that we did for an album that was never released. I thought they were lost for all time, and have not heard them since 1973.
A copy of this was very kindly sent to me by Pete Bonner at Psychotron Records.
They were recorded at DECCA West Hampstead, and ISLAND STUDIOS, Basing Street, London in 1973. I think, but don't quote me, they were produced by David Hitchcock (He produced Bang Bang Bullet) and us. Sadly, the album was never finished. Jake and I both played lead on these, and for info purposes, he used a Gibson Gold Top (I can't remember the year) and I used my '63 Strat. These tracks need cleaning up a bit, but I think they sound okay. If anyone has info as to the rest of the tracks on that album, I would appreciate it.
