THE SYNDICATE – The Egyptian Thing [1965]

”The story of the Syndicate runs along similar lines to countless other rock’n’roll bands in the mid-sixties. They got together to have fun, made some noise on the local teen scene, recorded a couple of singles, made a vain grasp for the brass ring, then vanished into thin air—all within the space of two magical years: 1965 and 1966.
What makes the Syndicate special, though, is those two hard-to-find singles. “My Baby’s Barefoot” (released on Doré Records in August 1965) and “The Egyptian Thing” (released on Dot in December 1965) are two of the most savage, hot-wired blasts of Punk R&B mayhem ever etched into wax, while the flipside of “The Egyptian Thing,” “She Haunts You” showed the group were equally adept at moody, minor-key material.
This LP presents all four of the band’s single sides along with four previously unreleased 1965 tracks of similar caliber, plus both sides of the rare 1963 Ris-Kays single featuring Syndicate front man Bill Rash.”

L.A. 60’s garage crew famed for their ’65 tunes ”My Baby’s Barefoot”& ”The Egyptian Thing” included in Back From The Grave vol.7. The Syndicate were influenced by the British Invasion bands as The Rolling Stones, Zombies, Kinks, The Who… This here is a comp. of 45’s and unissued recordings, a real cool collection in the rank of The Swamp Rats, The Squires, The Tempos, Zakary Thaks 60’s stuff. Raw & Rare, Dig!!!
