The Royal Nonesuch Something Strange / You Need Love 7″

All the markings (long bowl-like hair, funny suits, fuzztone guitars) of a prime neo-’60s garage band. And here it’s less of the PLASTICLAND-type goofery more of slower CHOCOLATE WATCHBAND groove. No real “rave-ups,” but they’re rumoured to be a pretty hard-driving combo live so wise up, shorty.

V/A Dirty Water: The History of Eastern Iowa Rock, Vol. 2 LP

While this label put out the great Surfin’ in the Midwest compilation, this sampler suffers from a little too much of the “folk rock” sound and not enough of the great ‘60s garage fuzz. Still, some respectable tracks from UNCLE AND THE ANTEATERS and DAYBREAKERS.
