Surfadelic Presents – GET THE PICTURE? [60’s Mod/Freakbeat]

Surfadelic Presents - Get The Picture a

Hey man, I mean peoples, what is Freak-Beat? Is it a beat music for freaks?

… But wait, there’s more! More dynamite, more savagery, more killer sounds from the Mod 60’s. Wasn’t so sure if I was going to make another compilation with my freakbeat & mod favorites but it turned out there were enough of them for at least one more Surfadelic volume. Again, there are mostly UK bands with a little help from few garage rockers from Australia, Scandinavia, Canada…  60’s Mod rockers as The Who, Small Faces, The Artwoods, John’s Children, The Loot, The Birds, The Attack mixed with raw R&B/Beat punkers like The Pretty Things, The Sorrows, The King Bees, The Talismen, The Master’s Apprentices, Downliners Sect, The Ugly Ducklings, The Outsiders… Wow just WoooW!!! And yes, Freakbeat is a beat music with wicked, harder rocking sound and touches of early psych, that’s my definition. Don’t believe me?, well try it yourself. Get the picture? Dig!!!

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!

Surfadelic Presents: Punks In Thee Garage!

punk garage 1a1x

 

This Surfadelic compilation is dedicated to 70’s & 80’s punk and new wave bands those who dared to cover some of their 60’s heroes like The Sonics, The Seeds, the Standells, The Wailers, The Kingsmen, The Music Machine, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Chocolate Watchband, The Shadows of Knight, The Doors… 

As you know many 70’s punkers were fans of 60’s mod & garage rock bands. Boston garage punkers DMZ were one of the first to dig into 60’s punk legacy. Wayne County of The Electric Chairs is a big fan of sixties garage bands, Nuggets and stuff and made maybe the definitive version of The Electric Prunes ’67 classic “I Had Too Much to Dream Last Night”. The Cramps create their whole style and career around the covers of 50’s & 60’s r-billy, trash and garage loosers. Some bands like UK The Inmates, a pub rockers which were not expected to dig US garage rock but did just that with cool cover of The Standells hit “Dirty Water”. You’re already familiar with Johnny Thunders & Patti Palladin silky cover of the Seeds “Can’t Seem To Make You Mine”. NY proto-punkers The Dictators covered “California Sun” well before their neighbors the Ramones. Bebe Buell [ya know Bebe?] sings “My Little Red Book” anyone cares? There’s an really cool cover of “I Never Loved Her” [originaly by The Starfires from Pebbles 8] by The Vogue, little known new wave group from Vienna. Todd Clark Group did a great job with Paul Revere & The Raiders hit “Hungry”. Also you can hear Hollywood Brats doin’ The Kinks’ “I Need You”, The Undertones cover of CWB classic “Let’s Talk About Girls”, Pagans with “Little Black Egg” etc. The most recent cover is from 1990. by my fav garage punkers The Devil Dogs doin’ great cover of The Shadows of Knight classic “I’m Gonna Make You Mine”. 26 trax of supercool garage-punk-new wave action Surfadelic style! Enjoy!

JOHNNY THUNDERS – M.I.A. (Surfadelic Collection)

JOHNNYTHUNDERS10a1b2a

 

Here’s brand new Surfadelic collection dedicated to one of my alltime guitar heroes J.T. As ya know there are loads of Johnny’s collections out there, some are great, some are weak so I decided to gather his rare & lesser know studio recordings and demos from 1979, 1982 & 1990 from various sources and put ’em in one place just fer your listening pleasure. Most of these songs never found a place on the proper studio album which is shame. Some of the tunes feature colaborations with acts as The Chesterfield Kings, Jerry Nolan and Wayne Kramer and the Gang War. Who Do Voodoo, Countdown Love, Help The Homeless, Hey Thanks, King Of The Gypsies… Cool stuff indeed. Don’t miss it, dig!!!

Surfadelic Safari vol.3a

Surf’s up! Brothers and sisters

 

Summer time’s here kitties and it’s time for ”Adventures In Paradise”, 3rd volume of Surfadelic Safari series, the most surfin’ one to date.  Oh boy, I really enjoyed making this compilation while I was watching ‘Shark Month’ on TV.  ‘Blue water White death’, ‘Golden Breed’, ‘Big Wednesday’ and stuff, so I got pretty inspired alright!. 🙂 Anyways, I hope you gonna like it. Here you gotta deal with classic 60’s surf/hot rod bands as The Atlantics, Jim Messina & The Jesters, The Buddies, Hal Blaine & The Young Cougars, The Hondells, Jerry Cole And His Spacemen, Dick Dale & His Deltones, Aki Aleong And The Nobles, Takeshi Terauchi & His Blue Jeans, The Super Stocks, The Ventures, The Tornados, The Avengers VI, Davie Allan & The Arrows and some lounge/score acts like The Dave Myers Effect, Jimmie Haskell, Harry Beatinger Formation, Hollywood Persuaders, Luis Enriquez & His Electronic Men, The Eliminators and The Back-Wash Rhythm Band [actually Davie Allan with other studio musicians]. Interesting is there are some early 70’s recordings by Takeshi Terauchi from his ”Manatsu No Umi Wo Buttobase!!” 1972′ LP and Harry Beatinger Formation ’73 lp and they fits very well with 60’s tunes.  Most of this stuff I’ve alredy posted here and on my old blog so some of you are familiar with it but others ain’t. So surfers, I wanna know what ya think about it alright?! Check some favorites down there and do da Dig!!!

 

‘Surfin’ is the only life, the only way for me…”
