THE VIBES – What’s Inside [1985] + EPs (Psychobilly/Garage Revival )

The Vibes

 

Formed in Essex, UK, this garage-billy John Peel favs managed to realese several singles and an lp in ’84/’85. This is not ”slap bass boring dickhead boom boom billy” as some of you could expect, but pretty interesting kick ass 60’s garage influenced rockabilly with it’s own kink. You can hear cool covers of some of you favorite Pebbles/Nuggets etc. garage tunes as ”No Friend Of Mine”, ”Ain’t It Hard”, ”Judgement Day”, ”Double Decker Bus”, ”Mini Skirt Blues”, ”Im In Pittsburgh (And It’s Rain’in)”… as well as fine originals with touch of early The Cramps as ”Hasil Adkins In My Head”, ”The Underestimated Man”, Footsteps” [xerox of ”Don’t eat the stuff off the sidewalk”] or great rockers as ”Inside Out (See All)”, ”Ballad Of J.D.” and garage psychedelics ”Hear Noises”, ”Loosing My Mind, ”Something Ain’t”. By 1986 they evolved into The Purple Things but that’s another chapter. Now dig this!!!
