WAVY GRAVY [revisited!]


Don’t you think I’m psycho, Mama?

Now, this is legendary! I’ve already posted it several times but now, here’s “Revisited” HQ version of this ingenius compilation LP issued in late 80’s. It’s a fun mix of 60’s trash, wacko country songs, novelty tunes, garage and B-movies trailers. Several track titles are changed to their original titles so don’t you worry, everything’s here. It’s Howdy Doody Time… Slide Her Under The Door!

You’re A Groovy Boy, I’d Like To Strap You On Some Time

“Every track on this album is a real laff riot. Demented novelty records from the 60s including an American senator’s stab at gettin down with the kids on a version of Wild Thing and a song about a guy who’s girlfriend was run over by a steamroller – solution – slide her under the door!
Standout tracks for me are Wendell Austin’s dire acid warning record ‘LSD’, the lyrics need to be heard to be believed (“I started using LSD/ it gave me quite a kick/ cheaper than booze and easy to use but it made me mentally sick”) and Eddie Noack’s country masterpiece Psycho (written by Leon Payne and covered by Elvis Costello, amongst others) ranks very high in the horror/ comedy stakes.
These are both beaten into second and third place by Porter Wagoner’s truly epic song ‘The Rubber Room’. Words can’t do justice so just hear this song if you can. It’s got the best demento echo sound ever (on the vocals!) – simulating the sound of a patient slowly succumbing to insanity in a mental facility.
Just to sweeten the deal – between every track on the vinyl you get twisted ads for cheap n nasty exploito ’60s films as well!”

You Pigs, We’re All Gonna Be Slaughtered !




THE MADNESS INVASION Vol.2 [50’s/60’s Rockin’ Trash]

BenQ DC S1410

“Got that rabbit on the run, chase that rabbit with my gun
No long-ear rabbit laugh at me (I’m here, mail-special! hehehe)
Got a great big rabbit-trap, long-ear rabbit don’t know that
The cotton-tale’s gonna change his habbit (I hates rabbits!)…”

Issued in 1988. on French label GMG,  ”The Madness Invasion” three volumes compilation series is one of the best  source of US late 50’s/early 60’s Trash Rock’n’Roll and novelty tunes next to ”Wavy Gravy” and “Big Itch” comps. Volume 2 is my favorite part of this series, with such ace trax as Surfin’ Bird-alike ”One Potato” by The Elite [band from ”Back From the Grave” vol.1], “Crazy Talk” by The Loafers, ”Ballad Of A Juvenile Delinquent” by Phil Johns & The Lonely Ones, killer “She’s A Bad Motorcycle” The Crestones, “Rumble Rock” by Kip Tyler, “I’m The Wolf Man” by Round Robin, hilariously mad “I Hates Rabbits” by Jerry Neal, “Wombie Zombie” by Billy Taylor & The Tear Drops, “Goodbye Baby” by The Roxsters… Also there are four cool instros as crazy “Roo-Buh-Doo-Buh-Doo” by  The Statesmen, Bo Diddliesque “Boom Stix” by Curley & The Jades, real cool “Expressway” by the Crazy Crickets and mysterious “Like Weird” by Tommy Falcone & The Centuries that closes this great volume. The other vols of this series you can find in Rockabilly/Trash/R&B section of this blog. Now, this is A MUST alright! you gotta dig, dig, DIG!!!



“…The rabbit’s swimmin’ in the river
I’ll just wait ’cause I’m no swimmer
To catch a rabbit’s lots of plannin’
(Oh boy) (Man, what a champion) (I hates rabbits!)”

REAL GONE GARBAGE [50’s & 60’s Trash]


“One man’s garbage is another man’s gold”

”Or as the world’s greatest Rock’n’Roll band puts it, “Your Trash, My Treasure”. Here is a goldmine of garbage dug deep from the dump. Unwanted one-non-hit blunders from the bowels of the 50s & 60s. Put on your gloves, clamp a clothespin on your nose and prepare for a VISIT TO HECK!”

Yo peoples! Here are some real funny and sick shit for a change. Check out some stoopeed dance hits as Steve & The Holidays ”Unemployment”, ”Irving Gluck Twist” or suicide hit single Ralph Smedley’s Suffocate/Drown – ”You feel great when you suffocate, You lose weight when you suffocate…” Dig!!!

!!! KOOKIE COOK !!! [60’s Wacko Garage]

“Kookie Cook, second only to Dean Carter as a rock screamer of no small dementia, was a drummer and played in local bands with Carter and Miller, before cutting a bizarre version of Roy Orbison’s Sun-era rocker Ooby Dooby in late 1965. The following year he returned to Midnite Sound to lay down a batch of self-penned material brimming with feverish excitement and reckless abandon, every song punctuated by thumping drums, piercing guitar and tortured screams. One listen to stupendous selections like Workin’ Man, Misery and the bloodcurdling Revenge should make a gibbering convert of any non-believer.”

And finally, after all these years of straight pop rock, comes a time to post some really wacko garage stuff. Sometimes in the mid 60’s KOOKIE COOK [as he was known to his friends & family :-)] takes a hostage at ‘The Midnite Sound” studio in Danville, Illinois, to record what [he was thinking] should-a-be a string of hits to shook the world. Well, if you have close relations with Dean Carter [studio owner and founder of Milky Way Records, famed for the crazy cover of “Jailhouse Rock”] everything’s possible right!…or maybe no.
Now seriously, this here is some real COOL & CRAZY [serial killer garage!] shit that reminds me on some of the wildest sides of Hasil Adkins & Dean Carter, so don’t be square ‘n dig! You’ll thank me later. And remember… Don’t Lie To Meeee!!! Dig!!!
“Measuring the songs in terms of their manic value, Kookie Cook’s “Revenge” has to be combing the lunatic fringe while his instrumental “Space Monster” is just a crazed jam punctuated by screams and alien voices. How everyone managed to get through the latter without bursting into hysterics or ending up in a straitjacket is forever lost in the mists of a very loopy time. And the way he beats the hell out of the eponymous instrument on closer “Drums” makes me question the common sense of anyone living in close proximity to the studio.”

MILTON DELUGG / THE VAMPIRES – At The Monster Ball / Music For Monsters, Mummies And Other Tv Fiends [1964]

Two 60’s novelty/lounge/horror slabs by arranger, and composer, Milton Delugg, best-remembered for score of the cult kiddie movie, ”Santa Claus Conquers the Martians”and his bandleading on Chuck Barris’ notorious game show, “The Gong Show.”
”At The Monster Ball” [as THE VAMPIRES] is in the R&B/Surf/Lounge instro style with funny horror dialogues [similar to Frankie Stein & His Ghouls], while ”Music For Monsters…” is more in Lounge/Jazz/Film score mode.
Calling all Munsters… Dig!!!
