Ball Power is the debut album by Australian rock group Coloured Balls, originally released in 1973 by EMI Records.

Coloured Balls were one of the best pure rock n roll groups to emerge from the early 70’s Australian scene.  Their wildcard was Lobby Loyde, one of Australia’s premier guitar heroes. Ball Power is not only the Coloured Balls’ greatest album but also the finest music of Lobby Loyde’s long, fabled career.

Ball Power favorably recalls the latter day MC5 or the Pink Fairies from their great Kings of Oblivion LP.  The best moments on Ball Power are transcendent.  “Human Being” is a blistering hard rock masterpiece notable for its crunching buzz saw guitars and bludgeoning rhythm section.  “That’s What Mama Said” utilizes a foot-controlled Theremin and lots of guitar soloing/guitar noise (progressive raunch).  

Other highlights are “Won’t You Make Up Your Mind”, the powerful boogie rock of “Hey! What’s Your Name” and “Something New”, a hard psych number with phased guitar work.  

From beginning to end Ball Power is an excellent album that’s mandatory listening – all the performances have that road-honed tightness and tense, proto punk edge.

Check out the tracks: “Human Being” and “Hey! What’s Your Name”.

This LP record is a 2014 reissue on 200 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a heavy duty gatefold cover with Obi strip, featuring remastered audio, pressed in Australia via Desperate Records.
