Everything You Always Wanted To Know


Hmmm… You certenly know something ’bout 60’s instros but this Arf! collection gathered some real wyld & weird sides. That means fuzzz, feedback, backmasking, acid and other psychedelic effects to warp your mind. Comparing to ”Buzz Buzz Buzzzzzz” instro comps, this one is more on psych/lounge side ’67-’69 stuff. Anyways there are some ’66 ”b-sides” as feedback drenched Oxford Circle”Mind Destruction”, Vaqueros ”69”, Dantes ‘’80-06”, The Executioners ”I Want The Rain”… Question Mark [& Mysterians] ”Hang In” is actually instro cover of The Squires “Going All The Way” but my favorite trax are The Mussies ”12 O’clock, July” a great garage-fuzz rip-off the Link Wray’s ”Jack the Ripper”, fuzzed-out ”Ballot Bachs” by The Shades, psychedelizied Pinocchio & His Puppets ”Fusion”, The American Dream ”Tioga”, Front Office ”Wow” it’s really Wah-Wah alright! Then  Hal Blaine ”Love In (December)”, The Arrows [Davie Allan] ‘‘Make Love Not War” and three cuts from ”Astro-Sounds: From Beyond the Year 2000” Lp by 101 Strings.

All trax were transferred from original records and rare 45’s so I have to do some cleaning that means… Sound check by Mr.Eliminator [himself] = Real Cool. Dig!!!

Songs The LYRES Taught Us [60’s Garage]



I’ve planned this for a long time and now here is a big fat 72 trax collection of songs covered by garage rock heroes the Lyres. As you know Jeff ‘Mono Man’ Conolly is a big fan of 60’s garage/beat especially The Kinks, The Pretty Things, The Sonics, The Standells, Chocolate Watch Band, 13th Floor Elevators, Flamin’ Groovies, The Stooges, Dutch band The Outsiders as well as some obscure ”Pebbles/Back from the grave” kinda stuff. Lyres have that rare ability kinda ‘magic’ to make others tunes sound as their own [somethin’ like The Cramps or Ramones]. Most songs in this collection are from 60’s but there are some R&B/Roll from 50’s and two trax from late 70’s Boston garage-punk acts. Almost every song they covered on their studio albums and live recordings is here, sometime in 2 versions. So, if you’re a fan of Lyres and 60’s garage/beat you should check these Mono Man favorites. Dig !!!

PAUL REVERE & THE RAIDERS – Surfadelic Collection !!!



”One of the most commercially successful US garage bands. In 1965, the Raiders began recording a string of garage rock classics. Under the guidance of producer Terry Melcher, the group relocated to Los Angeles and increasingly emulated the sounds of British Invasion bands such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Dave Clark Five, and the Animals, while adding an American, R&B feel. Their first major national hit, “Just Like Me” (No. 11, 1965) was one of the first rock records to feature a distinctive, double-tracked guitar solo, performed by guitarist Drake Levin.

The band appeared regularly in the U.S. on national television, most notably on Dick Clark’s Where the Action Is, Happening ’68, and It’s Happening, the latter two co-hosted by Revere and Lindsay. In November 1966, the band appeared as themselves performing a song on the popular Batman television series in the episode “Hizzonner the Penguin”. The Raiders had an endorsement deal with the Vox Amplifier Company through its U.S. distributor, the Thomas Organ Co., with Revere using the Vox Continental combo organ and Volk occasionally playing the Vox Phantom IV bass. When performing, the entire band was plugged into Vox Super Beatle amplifiers. The band was reported to be the first major band in history to tour with all members amplified, including sidemen such as horn players.

Their hits from this period included “Kicks” (Billboard Pop Chart No. 4), “Hungry” (No. 6), “The Great Airplane Strike” (No. 20), “Good Thing” (No. 4), and “Him or Me – What’s It Gonna Be?” (No. 5). Of these, “Kicks” became their best-known song, an anti-drug message written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil that was originally earmarked for the Animals. (Mann later revealed in interviews that the song was written about their friend, fellow 1960s songwriter Gerry Goffin, whose ongoing drug problems were interfering with his career and his relationship with then wife Carole King.

In mid-1967, with three gold albums to their credit, the Raiders were Columbia’s top-selling rock group.”

This is ultimately definitive comp. of The Raiders 60s stuff from 1965. to 1969. so don’t go no further ’cause this is essential! Step out ‘n’ Dig!!!






KENNY AND THE KASUALS – Teen Dreams / The Impact Sound Of [60’s Garage Rock]



All meaning faded away
A journey to tyme
Nobody cares if I ever return
It’ll be a quick trip that never end…”


”Kenny and the Kasuals were an American garage rock band formed in Dallas, Texas in 1964. They played at various venues, including the Studio Club, with a repertoire that consisted of material taken from the British Invasion and R&B standards. Over time the band began experimenting with early elements of psychedelic music and are often cited as one of the first groups to play in such a style. Kenny and the Kasuals released several singles including their best-known song, “Journey to Tyme”.” [wiki]



The Impact Sound Of… was their first LP recorded in 1966. It’s a ”fake live” album with covers of popular R&B and British Invasion tunes, that ranks among the most collectable LPs of the ’60s,

Teen Dreams is their second album recorded in 1966-67 but not released until 1978 as a private press of 400 copies on MLP (Mark Lee Productions) on red vinyl. This is their best lp, a cool collection of original tunes [and only one cover of Al Kooper’s tune], a mix of ballads and garage rockers with touch of psychedelia.


Nothing Better To Do 600


French label Eva released a couple of compilations with their 60’s recordings, ”Nothing Better To Do” and ”Things Gettin’ Better” in 80s.

Kenny and the Kasuals are one of the finest US 60’s punk bands, with their brand of garage/pop/psych influenced by the acts as The Kinks, Stones, The Zombies, Dave Clark Five and stuff. Fav trax: See-Saw Ride, Things Gettin’ Better, Revelations, Raindrops To Teardrops, I’m Gonna Make It, Journey To Tyme… Here you have vinyl rips of their two slabs + bonus trax. Reach your destiny, Dig!!!

I’ve reached my destiny
To be
Trapped in the walls of time
Held a captive
I can’t turn back
I won’t turn back…”

TRAVELER’S AID – Corduroy Roads / LITE STORM – Warning [Rare 70s Garage/Psych]


Two rare, early 70s US garage/psych slabs somehow simmilar in style. While Travelers Aid sole lp has more like raw rural rock, DIY garage sound [1970. private press 100 copies only], Lite Storm ’72 debut lp is kinda more cycedelic with male/female vocals [featuring Kali Bahlu], reminds me on raw, unpolished Music Emporium. ”This album was recorded prior to their coming under the “guidance” (read spell) of of an eastern religious guru [Sai Baba], who totally transformed their direction and sound for the remainder of their output”.Storm’s most accessible track ”Hanana” could be heard on Lycergic Soap and  Turds On A Bum Ride comps. Usually I’m not so keen on this kinda stuff [70’s hippie dippy shit] but there’s Wah Wah/fuzz guitar sound that appeals to me [some ”Bonehead Crunchers” vibe]. Originals of these lp’s change hands for lotsa $$$ nowdays, so… Check ’em out down there, Dig!



FLAMIN’ GROOVIES – Singles / Demo / Live / Bootlegs [70’s Mega Pack]




Ugh! Gorgeousness and Gorgeousity! An overkill of Groovie’s stuff. As you know Flamin’ Groovies were one of those high octane rock’n’roll groups of 60’s and 70’s same caliber as MC5, The Stooges or New York Dolls, so they deserve special Surfadelic treatment. Here we have some their 70’s singles, rare recordings and live stuff issued during several decades in various variations.

‘Slow Death’‘ – Trying to collect the Flamin’ Groovies can make you crazy. There are so many releases outside of their handful of official releases that it is hard to know which of the bootlegs, live shows, and demos you should get. Well, you definitely need this one. It focuses on the years after original wildman singer Roy Loney left the group and before the legendary Shake Some Action LP was released (October 1971 to July 1973, to be precise). The first six songs are self-recorded demos from 1971 and have been released a few times before, most notably as Grease on the Dog Meat label, but this is the first issue authorized by the band.”

”In Person!!!” – Live KSAN-FM broadcast from the closing of the Fillmore in San Francisco 1971. Great live garage sound! I Can’t Explain / Sweet Little Rock n’ Roller / Have You Seen My Baby / Road House / Doctor Boogie / Slow Death / Shakin’ All Over / Teenage Head / Louie Louie / Walkin’ The Dog / I’m A Man / Headin’ For The Texas Border.




”Sixteen Tunes: The Goldstar Tapes + More” – Same stuff as ”Grease: The Complete Skydog Singles Collection” Or “the great lost Groovies album,” filling some holes in the group’s discography. 16 Tunes combines the contents of the EPs Grease, Supergrease, and The Gold Star Sessions on one disc. The sound is raw, due to the fact that much of the material was outtakes and demos, and because Skydog never had ideal sources. Still, these are the Groovies in their prime years, and their energy and enthusiasm compensate for a multitude of technical flaws.

”I’ll Have A… Bucket Of Brains” The original 1972 Rockfield recordings Produced by Dave Edmunds. A personnel re-formation took place prior to the Flamin’ Groovies relocation to England, where the Rockfield sessions were held in August of 1972. The lineup now featured Chris Wilson (vocals , guitar) and James Ferrell (guitar), who replaced Roy Loney and Tim Lynch . Dave Edmunds immediately took to the Groovies, especially Jordan and Wilson’s power pop masterpiece “Shake Some Action.” In fact, Edmunds’ enthusiasm would almost immediately instigate Jordan’s equally inspired “You Tore Me Down,” which was written and recorded on the spot. Just as impressive are the cover versions of Frankie Lee Sims’ “Married Woman,” “Get a Shot of Rhythm & Blues,” and “Little Queenie.”



”Home To Roost” – Very rare Groovies LP collection of singles ’72-’75, studio recordings taken from various sources, plus several rehearsals recorded in San Francisco in 1971. 1. I Can’t Explain 2. Little Queenie 3. Married Woman 4. Get A Shot Of Rhythm And Blues 5. Talahassee Lassie 6. You Tore Me Down 7. Him Or Me 8. Jumpin’ Jack Flash 9. Blues From Phillys 10. Let Me Rock 11. Dog Meat 12. Sweet Little Rock ‘N’ Roller 13. Slow Death

Live At The Roxy L.A. 1976. & Live In San Francisco 1979. – Solid quality Bootlegs.
