EyEgEnEyE Productions proudly presents: Kid's Hits, Vol. 5|
Welcome to the Wigwam , kids! I admit the first records I bought were Speedy Gonzales, Juanita Banana and Hazy Osterwald’s Kriminal Tango. These songs must have sparked my passion for the funny tunes jukebox, which has never left me since. But don’t call it Novelty, please, since those records were made to jump on the train of the latest fads and newest dance trends. Instead, the tunes I have collected here (except a few exceptions such as Porky Twist and Mini Kini) take their inspiration from heroes and stories of the past. My collection (more or less in alphabetic order, kids don’t mind) starts in 1956 (Gadabouts) arriving in ‘73 (Tam Tam) proving that kids around the world always knew how to get the ball a'rollin’. I am sure Tarzan, Cheeta, Topolino, Cleopatra and the Princess of Persia
will not annoy you. So saddle your monkey, put on your Colbacco, take your ticket to Tokio, do the Wiggle Wobble and ….. have FUN!!!!

UC 270 - 271 – 272 – Cracks in the Iron Curtain, vol.s #7, 8; 9|When I searched beyond the Iron Curtain the last time (in march 2016!), I never imagined there will be a follow up, but never say never. In the meantime, I have learned that Pieciolinie and Piec Linii are two different Polish bands, how to pronounce words such as Gdzie chcesz, and I know now that Ej ta droga does not mean what you think (Google suggests "Hey, this way!”, and anyway, ‘t would be Vodka, and these sets are dedicated to two of its most famous victims, i.e. Peter Novak of George & the Beatovens and Miki Volek of Olympic). So I hope you’ll welcome 75 new entries of rare and never compiled Sovjet gems (tho’ in some nations, like Poland and Csz, some groups had anthology CDs, but try to get them). I collected some lesser known (and better) tracks from the “famous” groups (at least in their homelands), a good charge of versions (all a little pedestrian but still fine and sometimes, like Romanian Sincron’s Money Money (sic!) even better!), challenging no singers less that Eric Burdon, Steve Marriot, Phil May, Mick Jagger et al), and to good avail I’d say. You ‘ll be stunned by their most particular harmonies and rhythm patterns by the many original tunes which prove a strong homegrown tradition you won’t find in many other nations I guess. And even though in the lands behind the Curtain there was not one single fuzz pedal to get a grab on, all bands succeeded to deliver a sharp sound anyway and you will easily feel just like in a Western garage. Of course, the musicians featured here earn an extra praise as they struggled hard to build their own instruments and amplifications (including guitar pick-up wiring by means of sewing machines!), risking heavy censoring and concert interdiction and sometime even ended in jail.We have to thank Google Translator for many strange sounding titles which add some extra-fun to this set, and all bloggers and youtubers who proudly presented and still present their treasures in the net. My plough through the Russian Beat diasporas is continuing and has already yielded two nice songs for Cracks #10, so just wait another 2 1/2 years! In the meantime, enjoy the gems!PS: if you want to be right in the middle of it, don’t miss the Omega 1968 convert excerpts at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZ9FoFewteU Volume #7 01/ Kvratet Elektron - Sputnik - USSR02/ Kvratet Elektron - Postup' veka1 - USSR03/Dzikusy - El Passo - PL04/ Szwagry - Babunia - PL05/ Pop-Pojad - Fever - ESTONIA06/ Metro - Help! - HU07/ Metro - You Know You So Misty - UH08/ Liversing - Mama, Keep Your Big Mouth Shut - HU09/ Czerwone Gitary - Nikt Na Swiecie Nie Wie - PL10/ Atlantis - What Do I Say - HU11/ Atlantis - Inside looking out - HU12/ Sincron - Wooly Bully - ROM13/ Czeslaw Niemen Niebiesko Czarni & Blekitne Pon - Ach jakie oczy - PL14/ Phantoms - Hello Josephine - SCT15/ Phantoms - Hey Girl - SCT16/ Golubye Gitary - Barynya - USSR17/ Dogs - I Am A Believer - HU18/ Theo Schumann Combo - In meinen Gedanken - GDR19/ Theo Schumann Combo - Wer war gestern bei dir? - GDR20/ Aigul - [unknown, instro] - KAZAKSTHAN21/ Aigul - Barinende Sen Sulu - KAZAKSTHAN22/ LIversing - It's all over now (live) - HU23/ Pannonia - Szerelemben nincsen szimultán - HU24/Pannonia - Tusket szurtal a szivembe - HU25/ [unknown] - [One way ticket] - ?Volume #801/Sputniks, Die - Shazam - GDR02/ Olympic - Nebezpecan postava - CZ03/ Pesymisci - Nocny Spacer - PL04/ Gear Cutters - Hippy Hippy Shake - GDR05/ Liversing - Walking the Dog - HU06/ Liversing - Now I must go - HU07/ Skaldowie - Nie chce odejsc - PL08/ Filipinki & Dzikusy - Oj Maluski - PL09/ Atlantis - At the Scene - HU10/ Atlantis - Kislany, gyere velem - HU11/ Pieciolinie - Szkolne wspomnienia - PL12/ Pieciolinie - Wzburzone Morze - PL13/ Phantoms - Since I Lost My Baby - SCT14/ Phantoms - Talking about you - SCT15/ Optimistid - Stop The Music (live on TV) - USSR16/ Sincron - Money Money - ROM17/ Omega - Azert mert a faterod gore - HU18/ Omega - Azt Mondta Az Anyukám - HU19/ Scampolo - Ne írjon fel rendőo bacsi! - HU20/ Pavlo Hamell & Prudy - V sedive rano - CZ21/ Blues Five - I don't need no doctor (live) - CZ22/ Mercur - Csunya lany - HU23/ Kek Csillag - Aki téged sírni látott - HU24/ Peter Novac - Ja budu chodit po spickach - CZ25/ Josef Laufer - Rozbij Ty Chmure Hradby - CZVolume #901/ Tajfuny - Ej ta droga - PL02/ Kristallid - Kes Sa Kuuled - ESTONIA03/ Fryderyka Elkana - Tyle wiem - PL04/ Liversing - Down Home Girl - HU05/ Liversing - Carol - HU06/ Blackout - Gdy ja spotkacie na swej drodze - PL07/ Blackout - Gdzie chcesz isc - PL08/ Helena Majdaniec & Washington D.C.'s - Duzy Bad (live) - PL / UK09/ Atlantis - Holnap délután ötkor - HU10/ Atlantis - Nem vagy Te nagyuri dama - HU11/ Sincron - Stop Stop - ROM12/ Mira Kubasinska & Blackout - Zaspiewam ci tak - PL13/ Phantoms - What Kind of Girl - SCT14/ Phantoms - You must believe me - SCT15/ Polanie - Deszcz i wiatr - PL16/ Polanie - Podobni do mew - PL17/ Omega - Nem új a Nap alatt semmi - HU18/ Omega - Kiabalj énekelj - HU19/ Bergendy - Csunya csunya fekete leany - HU20/ Kvaratet Electron - Mirza - USSR21/ Shut Up - Charon a obesnec aneb Pisen Viselcova - CZ22/ Pasztor Lazlo / Neoton - A télböl tavasz lett - HU23/ Syncopy '61 - Mel jsem rad tvou penezenku - CZ24/ Syncopy '61 - Hej, pane muj - CZ25/ Electric - Povedz mi Miro - CZ

UC269 – Scraping the Beer-Beat-Barrel, Teil 7|
…on the other hand, when your’re scraping the bottom what you find is what you get. So prepare to meet serial killers (Der Harman), forbidden kiddy songs turned into beat tunes (Umma Latta), people who want to live in HillyBilly Town so much for the shootings, and maniacs that get their kicks in derailing trains (Roy Clark), whereas my fave drink becomes the Last Potion No9. But at the end there’ll be your Kaplan to save you. In between some deranged live tracks and demo tapes in trashy audio quality (sorry), many tunes you probably snobbed until some year ago, more infamous budget bands and missed hits from the neighbor lands (Holland, Switzerland, GDR), mostly all never compiled before and many not even mentioned in the bible (HJ Klitsch’s "Shaking all Over”). I guess the Hounddogs trumpet the message out loud and clearly: “Satzs what I want!” Anyway, I hope you don’t speak German. And listening to the Kraut’s versions of famous UK hits, it probably would even be better if you don’t speak English (“I can’t buy a man to another smoke / than sell cigarettes on me”)..

Losers of Rock’n’Roll - Drrrafi ! |
My favorite loser ever since. After some small hits in 63 and 64, Drafi hit big time with his “Marmor Stein und Eisen bricht" (Marble breaks and Iron bends in the English version) in 1965 - even today, every German can sing this hymn -, followed by more hits in 1966. But then bad luck stroke hard: Two little girls reported they saw Drafi pulling out his **** from his balcony, go figure! (at the trial, it was never been proved he tried to invite the girls, and Drafi stated he just had a piss at a party). Thus, the 20yo singer got sentences to 9 month of jail on probation, plus a 1000 DM fine, but what was worse was the German media, spearheaded by Axel Springer’s Bild Zeitung, started a hate campaign and totally ignored his recordings. Nevertheless, Drafi would soldier on outing recordings after recordings, many published under the most various pseudonyms, often with little success, and he would keep on recording until his death in 2006. Without never really charting it again.
I’ve called this little collection of his best work Drrrafi! as he had the quirk to stress the rrrr in the German speaking which gave him kind of a trademark. You’ll hear a great singer with a unique voice and a strong like for highly commercial sounds, backed by The Magics who where one of the sharpest bands around, progressively sounding like The Creation. Commercial meets Garage. More that the pinnacle of German Pop music, Drafi is the epitome of Germany. Hail to my hero!

eYeGeNeYe - First Ceskoslovensky Beat Festival (Praha Beat 1967)|
This is a mighty fine find I guess, and I think it shouldn’t get missed. Posted on youtube by Martin Boriš
, there’s a 45‘ video excerpt of the first Checoslovacian Beat festival in 1967, featuring 13 Garage songs, all killers, and in good audio quality to boot (and nice filming, too). You should admire this piece at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RJhD-InmV8
and you sure won’t be deluded.
I just have created a MP3 track for CD lovers plus a little booklet, translating some information I found from Check to Google-English, and trying to identify the artists / song titles of each track (which were wrongly stated in the youtube post). I hope there’s some Cecz Beat fan out there who can help finding the missing words. Huge Thanks for sharing the film go out to Martin Boriš !

UC268 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped - US Garage Gems , Vol. 38|
With 4 different bands of the same moniker, this set could have been dubbed “The Chosen Few of..”
Apart from the Astronauts and Cyrkle, Terry & the Flippers and Jack Ely, all other bands’ names were new to me, so I’m proud to present another charge of rare records that have slipped the official discographies (with highest esteem to TeenBeat Mayhem) and have been collected in no place but here. And I promise, in one way or the other, they’re all shiny gems. As listeners might have noticed, I have widened the Garage-term slightly to include records beyond the usually suspected so you’ll meet novelty records, bands with full fledged brass sets and even orchestra. All deliver great garage sounds tho’, at least to my ears.pic: American Beetles - FL1/ Wrecking Crew - Demolition - US, MD?2/ Mike Minor - Rumble in the Night - US, ?3/ Vikings - The Swomp - US, NY4/ Ronnie & Sinsashuns - Laugh It Up Baby - US, KY5/ Angie & Monoco's - Sad As I Can Be - US, MI6/ Gary Ray & Charms - What'cha gonna do - US, MN7/ Bobby & Boss Hosses - There's A Time And A Place - US, ?8/ Bobby & Boss Hosses - Sunlight in her hair - US, ?9/ King Bees - Long Tall Sally - US, CT10/ King Bees - Karen - US, CT11/ Astronauts - Buy me a Round - US, CO12/ American Beetles - She's mine - US, FL13/ Cyrcle - Big little woman - US, PA14/ Chosen Few - Another Goodbye - US, ?15/ Chosen Few - I've had it - US, CA16/ Chosen Few - It just don't rhyme - US, IN17/ Chosen Few - Synthetic Man - US, CA18/ Ritchie Weems & Continental Five - Wild In The Night - US, KY19/ Ritchie Weems & Continental Five - Natural born Man - US, KY20/ Danny Burk - A bit of alright - US, TN21/ Danny Burk - Promise Her Anything, Giver Her Me - US, TN22/ Julian - Sue Saturday - US, ?23/ Thyme - Shame Shame - US, MI24/ Clique - Ballad of a destitute man - US, IL25/ Mike Tingley - A Real Fine Time - US, CA1/ Dominic & Dominos Band - Dominic's Inferno - US, IA2/ Dominic & Dominos Band - It's alright - US, IA3/ Tommy Burk & Counts - True Love's Gone - US, TN4/ Sharon Lynn & Night Riders - A Letter To The Beatles - US, OH5/ David Dunn - Oh, Dancing Doll - US, ?6/ Joey & Continentals - No One Can Make My Sunshine Smile - US, OH7/ Sultans - She's got it - US, KY8/ Barons - Wild Inside (I Just Got) - US, CA9/ West Coast Five - Good Golly Miss Molly - US, CA10/ Freddy Koenig & Jades - I've Never Been In Love Before - US, TX11/ Green Giants - Pity me - US, IA12/ In - You're so fine - US, AL13/ Ponees - Here's The Place - US, TN14/ Clouds - Jeannie - US, TX15/ Jack Ely & Courtmen - Louie Go Home - US, OR16/ Terry & Flippers - Ready - Aim - Fire - US, KY17/ Castaways - Can't You See (demo) - US, OH18/ Maurice Monk - Come Home - US, VA19/ Second Hand - Tell Mama - US, NY?20/ Dream Machine - Broken Hearts - US, TX21/ Dream Machine - Houdini - US, TX22/ Forth Form - Thousand Days - US. ?23/ Chesmann Square - Try - US, KY24/ William Morgan & C's - Medicine Man - US, MS?25/ Swanks - My college Cry - US, NY

UC267 – Strange Sounds from Japan|
Strange sounds indeed, you’ll hear some promotional clips, gravy sounds, hens’ clucking, a Glockenspiel, vibraphone, sitar, a boys Choir, an entire music hall singing… I have tried to collect overseen and unheard i.e. never compiled tracks from the 60s that leave the grounds of Eleki and even GS but go a little further. Some of the famous groups are doin’ their best to switch on to the new psychedelic wave, and many newcomers prove that Japan must have enjoyed a wild and thriving scene. So welcome the 6 piece groups, the beat girls, and even some orchestra, and don’t miss Minoru Shiraki, a 140 cm tall man who, by birth, still looked like a baby but finally got famous in the movies. Only in Japan, I guess. Enjoy, brothers and sisters!
