TAV FALCO'S PANTHER BURNS - Deep In The Shadows (1994)


Rockabilly, Garage, Rhythm & Blues, Country, Tango, Calypso ... all executed in Tav Falco's unique latin lover style. Alongside groups like The Cramps and The Gun Club, Panther Burns dig deep for the roots of American music, getting inspiration from 50's and 60's underground rock'n'roll and some latin flavours. This here is a collection of trax from various albums and Ep's compiled by Patrick Boissel from BOMP records. You got cool covers of Chuck Berry, Hazelwood, Nightcrawlers, The Crestones, Charly Feathers, some tradicionals and one Grrreat! original, personal favorite "Cuban Rebel Girl". All the stuff was recorded at Sam phillips studio in Memphis and produced by Alex Chilton, Jim Dickinson and Tav Falco.  
This 10'' vinil ripoff is supervised by Mr.Eliminator of untouchable Surfadelic cult. So you know what you'll get is a superior blazing garage fidelity.

ALAN VEGA - Collision Drive [1981]



 Ghost Rider Motorcycle Hero

Alan Vega goes Rockabilly. Ingenious mix of New Vave, Electro and Rockabilly with touch of Art from this NY underground cat second solo effort, became my favorite party record. Great stuff all over, from Rockabilly of Magdalena 82, cool rendition of classic Be Bop A Lula, energetic Raver and Rebel Rocker to New Vave/Electro/Punk of Outlaw and Ghostrider, with great heart popping tearjerk balad I Believe and Suicide-like Viet Vet. This is Alan Vega best solo Lp, [as always] way ahead of it's time. Minimalist Electro/Punk for Psych-heads. This is A Must !!! 








IMPALA - El Rancho Reverbo [1994]



Great spaghetti western, latin flavored surf debut album for these "Kings Of The Strip". Recorded at Sam Phillips Recording Service, Memphis, TN. Special bonus tracks 14, 15 and 16 from the single Impala on Power Of Bob Records. Pretty nice soundtrack for the ultimate gunfight. Dig!

Them - Belfast Gypsies (1967) Vinyl Rip !!!

BELFAST GYPSIES

Them or not Them ?!?
Well, the story goes something like this ...

In late August 1965, Billy Harrison and Pat McAuley formed a rival Them, competing with the Morrison/Henderson line-up. In March 1966, the latter won the rights to the name while the former, now without Harrison but with Pat's brother Jackie McAuley, were only allowed to use 'Other Them' in the U.K. The McAuley brothers became, unofficially, The Belfast Gypsies (or Gipsies), though they were never actually billed as such, and recorded two singles on Island Records (one released under the name Freaks of Nature) and one Swedish-only album, all produced by Kim Fowley. They toured Europe billed as Them and released a French E.P. under that name but broke up in November 1966. [Wikipedia]
Sad but true... but what a heck. When they teamed up with Mr.Fowley it was pretty cool arrangement as he's something of "Garage Guru" and one hell of a man. He produced this fine Lp issued only in  Sweden. It's a mix of Folk Rock and wyld Garage R&B similar to Morrison's Them. Vinyl Rip by Surfadelic. Dig!

THE BETTERDAYS - Howlin'



"The Group That Makes The Rolling Stones Sound Like The Monkees" - NME

The legend says that these Plymouth garage/r'n'b cats were wilder than the Stones. Well, don't know that, but I know that this is a pretty rare stuff ripped from their '96. vinyl comp. Formed in 1960. The Betterdays were one of the very first U.K. R&B groups best known for their '65. minor hit singl Don't Want That [Pebbles Vol. 6, English Freakbeat, Vol.1] They were inspired by raw Rhythm & Blues of Bo Diddley, Howlin Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Chuck Berry ...They gain some regional success playing at the local overcrowded clubs, causing violent reactions from audience, but fail to get to the top. This Lp includes all of their '60's 45's + some live stuff. There's even cool '91. reunion Howlin For My baby [Howlin' Wolf] cover. 

"Turn the volume up, close your eyes and imagine the sweat is dripping off the walls. It is 1964 and The Betterdays have just walked on the stage"  [Dave Teil]

BLACKTOP - Up All Night [1994] Vinyl Rip!!!



Vinyl Rip! of one of my favorite garage records from 90's. As you know it's a MICK COLLINS' new garage "project" after The Gories. It was simmilar basic sound but this time with the Bass. Somebody says it's even better than The Gories! well who knows? Maybe. Anyways, this is unique Garage/Blues/Punk Lp issued on Australian "Au Go Go Records". It's pretty rare vinyl issue and for my opinion better collection than I Got A Baaad Feelin'. The sound of this rip is supervised by Surfadelic so you know what that means. Full blown superior <360> garage sound. As mr.COLLINS said "Get it while you can!"

THE NEW DIMENSIONS - The Best Of



A Beverly Hills teenage surf band formed in 1962. recorded three instrumental surf LPs for the small budget label Sutton. Their style reminds me on The Astronauts, but there's also a touch of Dick Dale, The Chantays and The Revels. All the stuff is written mainly by Jimmy Greenspoon (later keyboardist for Three Dog Night) and Michael Lloyd (later in the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band) This is a collection of trax recorded in '63/'64 with great stuff like Failsafe, Cat on a Hot Foam Board [well known from Diggin'Out comp.], Soul Surf, National Breakout, Bongo Shutdown ... So get your board and catch the ... Wild Wave!

THE SONICS - Sinderella [1980]



Some garagers don't dig it but put aside your prejudice and believe me this Lp is pretty cool even it's not the real Sonics. This is actually Gerry Roslie + bunch of guys called The Invaders. On this 1980. album they covered some well known Sonics and North-West 60's classics, as well as Bo Diddley, Freddy Cannon or Holland-Dozier songs. With its original and interesting sound this record is not part of 80's retro garage fever, it stands on it's own. "The songs were chosen to represent the spirit of Northwest music its history and its future" [liner notes]. There's great versions of He 's waitin', Louie Louie, Tallahassee Lassie, Open Up Yer Door [Richard & the Young Lions], Turn-on-song ... Non stop raw rock & roll fest. This lp is way better than many retro garage records you can find out there. Ripped from White Vinyl for coolest audio experience. Dig!!!

THE REAL KIDS - No Place Fast [1981/82]



Power Pop/Punk legends from Boston formed by John Felice in 1972, after he left the Modern Lovers. with Rick Coraccio on bass [Later DMZ, LYRES], Steve Davidson (guitar), and Norman Bloom (drums), they became a successful live band in the Boston area. Influenced by early rock'n'roll of Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly, 60's British invasion and garage rock as well as Flamin' Groovies and Ramones, they crated theire own brand of hard edged energetic Pop/Punk sound. 
With different line-ups they recorded some great records in 80's that are not well known as their debut '77 classic. This Norton Records 1999. compilation includes the '81. Taxi Boys EP and their '82.Outta Place album. Supercool stuff indeed, shows their real potential for rock'n'roll action.

THE UNCLAIMED - st [1987] Vinyl Rip!!!



The Unclaimed were one of the most interesting acts of the great Garage Revival scene in 80's. Formed in L.A. in '79. by Shelley Ganz, they were heavily influenced by 60's punk heroes like Chocolate Watch Band, Count Five, Music Machine, Seeds, Shadows of Knight, Standells. You can read their story here. They managed to capture the wild 60's sound that reminds me of Chocolate Watch Band No Way Out album and Ed Cobb production.
This is '87. Dutch reissue of 1983. mini Lp "Primordial Ooze Flavored". Vinyl rip is executed by Mr.Eliminator in SURFADELIC style for highest aural performance. You got to say... UGH!

THE HENTCHMEN - Formfollowsfunction (2004)


Somewhere down the line, longtime Detroit garage rock primitives The Hentchmen learned something about the importance of production values, and if you know them best from their stripped-to-the-bone early albums such as Ultra Hentch and Campus Party, then 2004's Formfollowsfunction may come as a bit of a surprise. By the Hentchmen's standards, Form Follows Function is downright slick, with clean and crisp engineering, a snappy drum sound, occasional sound effects, vocals and instruments that are actually in tune and in time, and a mix that actually involves panning and such -- in short, it doesn't appear to have been recorded in someone's rec room, unlike the majority of their efforts. But before any longtime fans begin howling "sell out," to these ears adding a bit of polish and buffing off the rough spots only makes it easier to tell that The Hentchmen write really cool songs, and play 'em with the right balance of style and sweat. John Szymanski's vocals finally get the attention they deserve, and he sounds tough and soulful throughout, while the spunky snap of Szymanski's keyboards (he lets go of his Farfisa to play piano and other stuff on some cuts), Tim Purrier's guitar, and Mike Latulippe's drums remain as solid as ever, just better recorded. The Hentchmen have always known how to play a great gig, but now they've learned how to make a record, and while an excess of craft is usually the downfall of a garage band, Form Follows Function is one example where a little technique in the right places goes a long, long way.  [Allmusic] Dig!
