  • 60's garage rock / pop psych..

    i've been listening to my copy of the s/t lp by wool a lot lately- can't get enough of 'comination of the two', 'love, love, love, love, love' etc.. their "witch" 7" promo (is it rare?) and a 7" by ed wool and the nomads are hopefully winging their way to me as we speak, but is there any more non lp material that i should keep my eyes out for?

    and i quite like the cover of 'love, love...' by the nite people that divine used on his easter cd too (is this an a or b-side?).. can anyone recommend any other groups/tracks similar to these? the rawer the better!

    my knowledge is practically non-existant, but i do know/ have some of the creation, mark four, the smoke etc.. (a few of the vv mix cds are proving great resources for this, but i thought i'd ask anyway..)

    thanks

    Maybe start with going for stuff on bigger labels I think. Because a lot of the good (UK especially) funky rawer stuff is sadly the stuff the big scarey beardy collectors want!

    Maybe check some of the rubble comps if you want to get into uk freakbeat sounds. Cannot recommend them enough.

    Stuff you might want to check out. They are intune with what I think Wool is rather than 60's garage rock (if that makes any sense).

      The 'Witch' isn't especially rare as far as I know, but it is a nice version. And that 45 by the Nomads (is it the one with the cover of 'Please, Please, Please' that you're getting?) is a little different to the sound of the LP. I don't know of any more non-LP stuff by them... As for the Nite People I *think* 'Love, Love, Love, Love, Love, Love' is the A - 'Hot Smoke And Sassafras' is the flip.

      There's plenty more people on here more knowledgeable than myself but, if it really is rawness that you're after, I'd recommend The Sonics. Also try Shocking Blue.

          thanks both..

          i have bit of rare earth stuff- and i've been kicking myself for never picking up the many different 7's (by other groups on the rare earth label) i used to see around berlin flea markets for pence. i've been meaning to check out power of zeus for a while too.. is the lp any good, or just over hyped for a break? and is the re-ish better quality than the original?

          i kind of realised it would be difficult to track down the smaller groups, but if anyone knows any gems easliy available... i'm quite partial to the b-side of amen corner's hit 'bend me, shape me'- 'satisnak the jobs worth', for instance

            Power of zeus is a really really really good record. I personally think the break is a pretty weak one at that. I love the record full stop.

                COMPILATION
                this comp is a prime introduction for such musical flavours - most of the tracks have been well flogged out on the mod/6Ts scene/clubs but they're all goodies aimed directly at the dancefloor. There's a vinyl version knocking about too. Horrible cheesy cover though!

                  are there any good resource websites for this stuff, particularly the smaller acts that wont get covered by amg?

                    just search the archives for funky rock. Or those band names. Most have discussed often!

                    From memory belsons mix was lovely psych - col's mix was packed full of freakbeat gems - johns mix was 100% fire and my mix was full of mentalist rocky funk too.

                      re: col wolfe.. that comp does look like a good intro, i'll see if i can spot the vinyl anywhere..

                      and it is indeed john's, belson's, sermad's and col wolfe's mixes (and a few other bits and pieces here and there) that kick started my interest again..

                      now i must get on with some work- this shop wont run itself, sadly..

                        I have not hear the Love Love track by the Night People, But their Hammond Instro Version of Summertime Blues is fantastic.

                            With respect to Sermad, I think that Power Of Zeus sound a little different to the other sounds discussed hear. It's like comparing Soundgarden to Mudhoney - both grungey but one's heavy rock while the other's garage. 'The Gospel According To Zeus' is heavy rock, in my opinion. Nevertheless, it's a great LP. With a great break (for the reason that it's hard as hell as and prime for chopping, not because it's funky drumming).
                            You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.
