FUN THINGS - Ep [1980]

                                    FUN THINGS                                   

The Fun Things were Australian high energy punk band that was formed during the heyday period of punk rock. Known for their admiration of Radio Birdman, they also have been documented as being "modeled on almost exclusively on the Radio Birdman / Stooges / Sex Pistols mould". Original band members were Brad Shepherd on guitar and vocals, John Hartley on bass guitar, Graeme Beavis on guitar and Murray Shepherd on drums. Brad Shepherd and Murray Shepherd were brothers in the band, which released one highly acclaimed E.P. and has become "one of the most collectable artifacts from Australia’s punk rock era". After The Fun Things dissolved both Shepherd brothers eventually went on to subsequent profile bands such as The Hitmen, The Hoodoo Gurus for Brad Shepherd and The Screaming Tribesmen for Murray Shepherd with John Hartley. In 1984 Beavis was a member of The Apartments. [wiki]

Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames - Do The Dog [1964/65]

                                 GEORGIE FAME                                

''Say Yeh Yeh...''

Georgie Fame's swinging, surprisingly credible blend of jazz and American R&B earned him a substantial following in his native U.K., where he scored three number one singles during the '60s. Fame played piano and organ in addition to singing, and was influenced by the likes of Mose Allison, Booker T. & the MG's, and Louis Jordan. Early in his career, he also peppered his repertoire with Jamaican ska and bluebeat tunes, helping to popularize that genre in England. [AMG]

Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames were one of a dozen or so bands who were nurtured at The Flamingo Club in London, in the late 1960s. At a time when American classic R&B (James Brown, Curtis Mayfield, early Ray Charles) was available only as expensive imports through a very few record stores, Flamingo artists introduced the music to British audiences. (Note that the Beatles had followed a similar path a few years earlier, introducing British listeners to Tamla-Motown, which also had been unavailable in the UK.) Even bands such as The Who included some R&B in their repertoire during this period; so did Rod Stewart (who appeared a few times at The Flamingo). But the R&B never really broke out of the club scene. Bands such as Zoot Money and Herbie Goins and the Night Timers remained obscure. Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames were the only Flamingo regulars who enjoyed any real national success, and they did it by diluting the R&B with a more pop-flavored product. Thus we have a strange crossbreed: British pop and American R&B that was already out of date when Georgie Fame started playing it. [Amazon Customer Reviews]

Infamous INSTRO-MONSTERS of Rock'n'Roll

  Infamous INSTRO-MONSTERS of Rock'n'Roll   

Once upon a time there was a land where instrumental Rock 'n' Roll would hit the charts for 10 years. Bands didn't need a singer: blasted off audiences just with guitars, sax and drums!. They invented new words as twang, growl or surf and their sounds crossed the oceans having an amazing effect on youngsters' ears. Unfairly many of those bands were forgotten and most Rock history books don't waste a single line to talk about those days. But times have changed and here's 22 of those Infamous Instro-Monsters Of Rock 'N' Roll.
50's & 60's twangin', growlin' & sax wailin' instro rockers. Dig!


Link Wray - Slinky / Rene Hall - Twitchy / The Admiral Tones - Rocksville / Young John Watson - Space Guitar / Sonny Burgess & The Pacers - Itchy / The Strangers - Rockin' Rebel / The Intruders - Jeffrey's Rock / Grady Martin - When My Dreamboat Comes Home / The Gamblers - Moon Dawg / The Virtues - Flippin' In / Duane Eddy - Ramrod / The Tune Rockers - Green Mosquito / The Kingsmen - Week End / The Champs - Twenty Thousand Leages / Arvee Allens - Fast Freight / The Fugitives - The Fugitive / The Rockin' R's - Nameless / Santo & Johnny - Caravan / Jewel & Eddie - Strollin' Guitar / The Ventures - The McCoy / The Elrondos - Cool Breeze / Plas Johnson - Blue Jean Shuffle

Nevertheless, there's enough garage feel to keep it interesting for ''Garage Crowd''. Just check the opening track, the thundering ''Mindbreaker'', it sounds better than ever on this Surfadelic ''Tour de force'' Vinyl Rip. $100 Dig!!!

THE LITTER - Distortions [1967] Vinyl Rip!!!

                                    THE LITTER                                     


The Litter was formed by members of two Minneapolis area mid-'60s groups, the Victors and the Tabs. Heavily influenced by the fiercest British Invasion bands such as the Yardbirds and the Who, they recorded their debut single, "Action Woman"/"A Legal Matter," with local producer Warren Kendrick in late 1966. "Action Woman," in fact, was not a Litter original, but a Kendrick composition. Bill Strandlof, who had played the searing guitar lead on "Action Woman," was replaced by Tom "Zippy" Caplan in the spring of 1967, just before they recorded most of the tracks that comprised their debut album. Leaning heavily on covers of songs by British bands like the Yardbirds, the Who, and Small Faces, Distortions was nevertheless a prime example of '60s garage rock at its most powerful. [AMG]

One of the top 10 sixties garage records for the first time vinyl ripped from K-tel 1990. reissue. For me it sounds better than Get Hip or Arf Arf reissues you can find out there. Comes with two bonus trax The Egyptian and Blues One. Vinyl Rip by Mr.Eliminator for Surfadelic production. SuperFuzz <360> Garage Sound. A MUST. 
Dig The Fuzz!!!

THE BLASTERS - Sounds Of The Drags [1963]

                                 THE BLASTERS                                 


Founded in 1957 by the Bahari Brothers, the Crown Records label was reknowned for issuing cheap, budget cash-in offerings, and had a fairly sizable catalogue to its name by the time it dipped its toes under the tread for a series of hot-rod tie-ins during 1964. 
The Blasters album was the third such release to come out of the stable (following on from albums by The Hot-Rodders and Jerry Kole & The Strokers) As with all of the labels releases, there were no writing, performing or studio credits anywhere to be found on the package, although it is known that ace session guitarist (and future Rockabilly Hall Of Fame inductee) Jerry Cole (Kole) made significant performing and production contributions to these Crown releases, although specific roles have yet to be ascertained as to who played what on which release ... but one thing IS certain, whoever is/was playing the guitar on the awesome "Steering Wheel Stuck" really knew how to play that thing! [net]

Jerry Cole again with his hot rod studio crew. Cool rubber burned instros and some solid vocals on this rare drag race slab. VROOOOM!!!
