!!! BEAT REVIVAL EXPLOSION !!!
Two of the most interesting beat revival groups in last 10 years. The Outta Sites from L.A. with members of Los Straitjackets [Chris “Sugarballs” Sprague and Pete Curry] sound like mid 60’s Garage/Beat attraction “British Invasion” style. Their 2013. debut slab features cool retro-beat originals and covers of “One Track Mind”, “Jezebel”, “Just A Litte Bit”, “What a Girl Can’t Do,”…
In the other corner are MerseyBeat gang from Norway, influenced by famous bands like THE SHADOWS, THE SWINGING BLUE JEANS, SHANE FENTON & THE FENTONES, BILLY J. KRAMER & THE DAKOTAS. This is their 2005 debut + some 7″ EP added for a good measure. If you adore THE KAISERS, THE RAPIERS and stuff, ya know… Dig!
!!! SHAKE Baby SHAKE !!!
