Surfadelic Presents – COLOURS OF MY MIND [60’s Mod/Psych]

Colours Of My Mind 1

 

60’s Mod story continues in the new volume of ‘Surfadelic presents’ collection with title inspired by this 60’s chick body painting and song ”Colour Of My Mind” by my favorite mod/psych gang The Attack. Here I’ve managed to gather some of my alltime mod psychedelic tunes mostly by UK bands as The Action, John’s Children, The Creation, The Open Mind, The Smoke, The Electric Banana (Pretty Things), The Factory, The Longboatmen, you could find on legendary comps as Chocolate Soup for Diabetics, Rubble series or Electric Sugarcube Flashbacks and others. Also there are trax by classic acts as The Troggs, The Who or The Yardbirds and some lesser known losers. This stuff is more on psychedelic side of mod genre than on previous freakbeat collection. And yeah, attention! There’s one real cool tune not from the 60’s but by an modern band, so you could guess who it is and you can win my respect.  The cover model is famous 60’s boobastic chick Michelle Angelo. Take Her Any Time, Dig!

optical 1a1a

 

Whatcha say ’bout spiral cover art, ha? Do ya feel kinda dizzy miss Lizzy? Ok, here we go! This is brand new Surfadelic comp dedicated to 60’s Mod & Freakbeat rock action, as you could see already. I’ve borrowed the title from an real cool Dave Clark Five song, they won’t mind I quess. Here I’ve gathered some of my favorite tunes mostly by UK bands and few by others like Dutch, Scandinavian, German & Italian groups. There are couple of trax by unknown authors or bands, so maybe you can help to solve that mystery. All I can say is, it’s a 100% killer collection you have dreamed of. Non stop raw, fuzzed-out & sexy rockin’ action by yesterday’s savage youth. There are many 60’s comps out there but hey, this one is Surfadelic, alright! You gotta deserve it, you have to concentrate! Look at those spirals… you gotta dig!!!

JAY-JAYS [1966] Vinyl Rip!

Jay Jays 1

 

“At the end of 1965, four members of The Hagues popular Jumping Jewels dumped their manager and struck out on their own as the Jay-Jays. With the name change came a new musical direction, a pent-up beat music sound inspired by the Beatles, the Who and, especially, the Kinks. Their first single, Bald Headed Woman, was a Top 10 smash. The Jay-Jays most impressive recordings were all released within the span of one tumultuous, action-packed year: 1966. Their self-titled album included such Dutch beat gems as Come Back If You Dare, I Keep Tryin, Today Im Gay and the fuzz-packed instrumental Cruncher. Every one of those jumping 66 jewels can be heard on this twelve-inch platter, remastered in dynamic mono sound, each sounding louder, more vibrant, and more crunch-filled than ever before.”

Vinyl rip of this 60’s garage/beat band from Holland fine ’66 LP. Already have posted their stuff before but hey, ya gotta git it anyway. Keep on tryin’, Dig!!!

PEBBLES Vol. 6 (Revisited)

Pebbles Vol. 6a

 

This Pebbles volume is dedicated to raw 60’s Brit rhythm & blues rather than Mod as it’s stated on the cover. It features cool garage/r&b by The Fairies [Twink pre Pink Fairies band], The First Gear, The Betterdays, The Wild Ones, David John & The Mood, The Wheels, Bill & Will “Goin’ To The River” (later covered by The Gories), covers of Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, Jimmy Reed. One of my favs is “Singing The Blues” by Jason Eddie And The Centremen, a neurotically played tune produced by legendary Joe Meek! [apparently he added the wild guitar afterwards without the band knowing and they weren’t happy]. Last track on this comp is a pop tune by Bo & Peep and the band is mainly The Rolling Stones plus others that might have included Gene Pitney and Phil Spector.

As with other “Revisited” volumes the sound quality is quite improved with trax from the best possible sources. There is also cool bonus cut by Jimmy P. just for your listening pleasure, don’t miss it! Dig!!!

CINECYDE – I Left My Heart in Detroit City [1982]

I Left My Heart in Detroit City

 

This is debut LP by somehow overlooked Detroit new wave punkers formed in 1977. It’s turn out to be a gem full of hard rocking melodic punk tunes as Don’t Come Crying To Me, Better Dead, Wondering Why, Girls Who Play Tricks On You, Wake Up, I Don’t Want Nothin’ From You…  Somehow reminds me on X. Vinyl rip of 10 trax lp + 4 bonus cuts. Check some favs down below ‘n’ Dig!!!

DMZ – Relics [1977/81] Vinyl Rip!

Dmz - Relics _a

 

“Four Craig Leon-produced tracks released on BOMP which is the parent company of Voxx and five demo tapes that were recorded on four-track comprise this excellent collection. “When I Get Off” was the number two Garage Record of the Year in 1978 in Boston’s Real Paper, and it is a psychedelic masterpiece. The dueling guitars, slashing riff, and great Corraccio bass complement Mono Mann aka Jeff Connolly’s blitzkrieg vocals. Here is a slice of pyschedlia that is the fans outdoing the bands they idolize. Also, as with Willie Alexander’s demos, it seems Craig Leon did a much better job on smaller budgets. The lyrics are sexist, but fun in “Barracuda” — definitely not the Heart song — “Lift up Your Hood,” and the aforementioned “When I Get Off.” There is also a cool cover of Roky Erickson’s “You’re Gonna Miss Me” and a fantastic album jacket of the band photographed at what looks like the Rat nightclub inside a red background covered in barbed wire fence.” [AllMusic Review by Joe Viglione]

You could hear this legendary garage punk band on Surfadelic comps I put recently and here is Mr.Eliminator 360 sound vinyl rip of this classic 9 trax Bomp records comp of 1977. EP + 5 Demos. I already have posted CD version but you should try vinyl alright! This is kick ass stuff, don’t miss it!
