“Got that rabbit on the run, chase that rabbit with my gun
No long-ear rabbit laugh at me (I’m here, mail-special! hehehe)
Got a great big rabbit-trap, long-ear rabbit don’t know that
The cotton-tale’s gonna change his habbit (I hates rabbits!)…”
Issued in 1988. on French label GMG, ”The Madness Invasion” three volumes compilation series is one of the best source of US late 50’s/early 60’s Trash Rock’n’Roll and novelty tunes next to ”Wavy Gravy” and “Big Itch” comps. Volume 2 is my favorite part of this series, with such ace trax as Surfin’ Bird-alike ”One Potato” by The Elite [band from ”Back From the Grave” vol.1], “Crazy Talk” by The Loafers, ”Ballad Of A Juvenile Delinquent” by Phil Johns & The Lonely Ones, killer “She’s A Bad Motorcycle” The Crestones, “Rumble Rock” by Kip Tyler, “I’m The Wolf Man” by Round Robin, hilariously mad “I Hates Rabbits” by Jerry Neal, “Wombie Zombie” by Billy Taylor & The Tear Drops, “Goodbye Baby” by The Roxsters… Also there are four cool instros as crazy “Roo-Buh-Doo-Buh-Doo” by The Statesmen, Bo Diddliesque “Boom Stix” by Curley & The Jades, real cool “Expressway” by the Crazy Crickets and mysterious “Like Weird” by Tommy Falcone & The Centuries that closes this great volume. The other vols of this series you can find in Rockabilly/Trash/R&B section of this blog. Now, this is A MUST alright! you gotta dig, dig, DIG!!!
“…The rabbit’s swimmin’ in the river
I’ll just wait ’cause I’m no swimmer
To catch a rabbit’s lots of plannin’
(Oh boy) (Man, what a champion) (I hates rabbits!)”
Real COOL comp. of rare, primitive & outta control early/mid 60’s rockin’ tunes. If you dig stuff like “Greasy Rock`n`Roll” series “Desperate Rock`n`Roll” or “Born Bad” ya gonna love this too. Check some favs down below ‘n’ dig! LET IT RIP !!!
“AN OVERDOSE OF HEAVY PSYCH showcases over-the-top, fuzzed-out masterpieces. Excessive guitars, wild effects and tripped-out lyrics all produce magical and imaginative music from this by-gone era.”
“What sets this apart from the many other similar ’60s garage-psych releases is the extremeness of the music. Tracks collected here feature grungier guitars, slower or varied tempos and darker and more ominous atmosphere than earlier punk singles…and more fuzz and heavier feedback (even the occasional oscillator). These tracks were typically cut later than many of the other garage-band compilation series, and influences are second generation bands like Steppenwolf, Blue Cheer, Love, and the Stooges. While poppier sounds are eschewed on these sides, according to the liner notes these heavier slabs are the flip sides of lighter material. If the ballads on garage comps are the ones you skip over, by all means pick up a copy of this collection…you won’t be disappointed. An extra bonus are six caveman-stomping cuts by the Boneheaded 31 Flavors, originally from two low-budget psych-sploitation albums on the Crown label.”(AMG)
Probably one of the best garage/psych comps that feature mostly late 60’s fuzzed-out killer tunes by Orange Wedge, Quiet Jungle, 20th Century Zoo, Powered By Love, Crystal Rain, Glass Sun, Graf Zeppelin, Blu-Erebus, Boston Tea Party… Many alltime favs, killer fuzz all over the place… There are more fuzz than you ate hot meals. Don’t miss it! Dig!!!

And “freakbeat” is what?
“For those of us who pushed our transistor radios to the limits in the 60’s, looking for stations playing British rock outside the boundaries of the top acts, this compilation will make life a lot easier. No more holding that small plastic box up in the air, turning it this way and that to catch signals from WLS Chicago and similar stations which introduced us to the lesser known UK groups of the day.
But, truth be known, we would have had a hard time hearing these tunes even on those rare radio programs. Not much of this material made it our way. And the term “freakbeat” was unknown to us, it was coined much later (in the 80’s by British journalist Phil Smee) to identify songs which were a little outside what stations might have been willing to carry. Album cuts, 45’s by one shot artists, etc. There are many gems in here that would cost you hundreds of dollars in the rare chance you could find them at all. For example, “Tell Her” the male gender version of the Exciters “Tell Him.” This is one of many fine compilations available on the subject, indeed, one of the better ones for the rarities. And, in itself, this compilation is getting pretty scarce as well.”
Pretty solid freakbeat comp. featuring killer mid 60’s stuff by The Blue Rondos, The Sorrows, Tony Jackson, The Clique, The Primitives, The Worrying Kynde, The Montanas, The Movement, The Troggs, The Truth, Simon Raven … Many of these trax could be heard on comps like ‘English Freakbeat’ and others but anyways… Jump And Dance, Dig!!!
This is ’76. Sire rec. reissue of the Lenny Kaye’s legendary garage rock compilation but with different cover art. You’re familiar with 4CDs Rhino box set where 1st disc is like original ’72 Nuggets, but the sound is pretty different as Rhino discs are mono remasters [with brickwalled sound] while Sire and Elektra used stereo and mono masters. Vinyl rip by Surfadelic. Check it out!
Collection of raw rockin’ n’ surfin’ instros on Mr. Manicotti label that gave you legendary ”Diggin’ Out” comp. and ”The Big Itch” series. Already have posted this before but here it is again with slightly better sound. Concussion!!!
