LONG HOT SUMMER - FRIDAY AT THE CAGE A GO-GO [1965] Vinyl Rip!!!



"Recorded in 1965 by Detroit's famous Cage a Go-Go night spot, this is listed on the back cover as a compilation. However, many of these tracks are unavailable anywhere else. They were not recorded live at the club, but the club apparently paid to have several of their regulars record some of their best known and most popular tracks for this sampler. Due to its recording date, much of this has a very early sound in the garage vein." [Tymeshifter]

DAMN, What's this!? A '65 Psychedelic slab? Noooo. This is actually an early garage compilation featuring Detroit garage bands Oxford Five, Lourds, Individuals and The Fugitives, doing some real fine Garage/Folk tunes and covers. This stuff is RARE as heck and COOL as fu*k, so don't you dare miss it. Hide The Sausage, Dig!!!

MOGEN DAVID & THE GRAPES OF WRATH vs THE BEDLAM FOUR [1967] 7"s




 Here are two slices of 60's teen garage dementia

"Hard as it may be to believe, there apparently were at least three bands in the 1960's known by the name Mogen David & The Grapes of Wrath. There was a band using that moniker in the Detroit area; another from Barrington, Illinois; and one from Kokomo, Indiana. The Kokomo group is the band most commonly associated with the name, as they are the band that laid down the killer single Little Girl Gone and Don't Want You No More on the Cha Cha label."

The Bedlam Four were from Minneapolis and became famed for their '67 single "Hydrogen Atom", a garage/psych tune you are familiar with as it was landed on numerous comps as ''Mayhem and Psychosis'', ''Sixties Rebellion'', ''Quagmire'' etc. This here are their unreleased '67 recordings.

Two 60's novelty/lounge/horror slabs by arranger, and composer, Milton Delugg, best-remembered for score of the cult kiddie movie, ''Santa Claus Conquers the Martians'' and his bandleading on Chuck Barris' notorious game show, "The Gong Show."

''At The Monster Ball'' [as THE VAMPIRES] is in the R&B/Surf/Lounge instro style with funny horror dialogues [similar to Frankie Stein & His Ghouls], while ''Music For Monsters...'' is more in Lounge/Jazz/Film score mode.

BARRENCE WHITFIELD eta PETTI & THE BLOODYHOTSAK [2010]



Collaboration between Boston Garage/R&B shouter Barrence Whitfield & Basque singer/songwriter Petti. Interesting mix of hard rockin' Rhythm & Blues and country/folk rock tunes, some sung by Petti in Spanish, Basque dialect.

"The result of the meeting is a record with many “*”s, all that you can imagine. Barrence shows a preference for five covers which are thought for Petti to play as comfortable as if he was at home. Steve Wynn´s “Kerosene Man” sounds as a new song, just like  Dennis Brennan´s “Sugar Falls”. He is more respectful in Tom Russell´s country classic “Veteran"s Day”, but not with The Bottle Rockets´ “Thousand Dollar Car”. And in “No Reason”, he shows how good Treat Her Right, the formation from which arose Morphine, were. Petti corresponds with five compositions to share: “Bat ez bada bertze” to start the machine; a genuine blues near to Hound Dog Taylor style called “Ehiza”, that burns; “Solasaldia”, a song from the border continues the celebration, until the moment when they sing together “Min Ixila” or make the guitars explode in “The Lonesome Cowboy”.

!!! THE BRISTOLS feat. FABIENNE DELSOL !!!



"Attracted to the British music scene of the time, Fabienne moved to London in 1996, almost immediately joining the Bristols, a then studio project consisting of Liam Watson and Ed Deegan, two producer-engineers at Toerag Studios.

Fabienne had never really sung before but after Liam’s proposition for an audition and knowing that his taste in music was so perfectly matching hers, she was determined to give it a go. The first single ‘Questions I Can’t Answer’ was recorded in a couple of hours, the first vocal take being used on the record that came out the same year on a Damaged Goods 7”. The Bristols were by then willing to make the most of it and in order to play live and tour decided to form a full line up, including members of the Headcoats, Kaisers and Cee Bee Beaumont.

After two albums, a few singles and several tours of Europe, the Bristols came to an end when Fabienne was unable to find a suitable new bass player to replace the original one. Eager to carry on singing, Fabienne went solo, getting backing from various musicians but with no fixed line up."


Whoa! Whatta post! More girl voiced rockin' sounds in this REAL COOL 60's influenced Garage-Pop project, Fabienne Delsol & Liam Watson’s garage supergroup featuring amongst it’s ranks Bruce Brand (Milkshakes/Headcoats) Owen Thomas (Graham Coxon Band/Cee Bee Beaumont) Parsley (The Adventures of Parsley/Dutronc/Dee Rangers).
Influenced by 60's Garage/Freakbeat as well as Girl Groups, French Ye Ye Pop and stuff, THE BRISTOLS made perfect retro beat sounds for 21st century.

If you dig stuff like Delmonas ,April March or Ludella Black, well crafted 60's garage pop rock with a bit of psychedelia, you mustn't miss this 'cause... it's even better. This is the best stuff I discovered lately. THIS IS A MUST!!!
