THE SCORPIONS – Rem!nd [1964-1966]

This ain’t no heavy metal band from Germany [God forbid!] but 60’s beat combo from Manchester, England. They proved far more successful in Holland than in their home country, and are often believed to be a ’Nederbeat’ band alongside The Outsiders and Q65, all falling into a category of so-called ’freakbeat’, a term invented two decades later to describe a certain type of wild, raw-sounding beat music.
First heard ’em on superfine garage/beat comp. Trans-World Punk Rave-Up!Vol.1 with frantic “Just Like Me” and now here they are with solid retrospective of their 60’s recordings. Mostly upbeat covers of classics by Chuck Berry, Little Richard and others, with touch of Downliners Sect style. Rip It Up!
