UC356ab – 60s (mostly ) Uncomped - Mas Garage del Centro, pt. 3


I’ve been diggin’ again in the goldmines of Central America, and quite a bunch of nuggets have shown up. I admit, I’ve added Bolivia and 1 track by a band from Chile (tho’ recorded in Bolivia) to my collection although not precisely del Centro America. At any rate, I feel I can promise all tracks are uncomped and chances are you’ll hear them here for the first time ever (unless you don’t frequent the youtube channels listed below). Only a few 45 records (or 33rpm 10’EPs) came with picture covers, but I found some band photos and much info in the net and on dedicated (or even the band’s own) fb sites. You will pardon the bands for the bad audio quality (sometimes), but recording and pressing facilities were obviously not like those in the States (and some vinyl platters must have been played with a rusty nail, I guess). I was especially happy finding some 60s (and early 70s) output by bands from unexpected nations like Nicaragua and even Paraguay who must have fought a hard being under Anastasio Somoza Debayle and General Alfredo Stroessner. Which means the musician you will hear are the true heroes of Garage! Go and read the stories of their struggle to success in the 8 pg booklet attached.

eYeGeNeYe presents: Global Guitars a Go Go , Pt. 5


“…. with wild Farfisas!” I should have added. Here we are again with 90 tracks that do not need any language skills to appreciate at the fullest. I tried to avoid the better know staples of the instrumental songbook (like Apache, Baja ecc) although some versions had to be included inevitably (like Misrilou and Exodus plus a few more, hidden behind some foreign language titles) . And as usually, my Global Guitar installments are focused on rougher gogo-instros, hopefully with lots of shouts ad wacky instrumentation and recording gimmicks. Of course, the bulk of the pieces comes from the US of A, but combos from some unexpected nations of quite any part of the globe (from Chile to Russia and from Malaysia to Romania) give a strumming hand. I believe that even hardcore instrumental aficionados will meet some artists’ names (and tunes) for the first time here. The overall sound is quite homogenous(ly wicked), so my collection doesn’t need chronological order, the alphabet of artists is fine. Enough said, let the music do the talking! Instro Galore!!!

UC355 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped - NoN-Garage # 11


Back in the Garage, all non-Garage songs tonight! I admit, for one reason or another, none of the tracks I’ve selected would be tagged as Garage, be it for the stupid topic (Ougaougamochka , Johnny finds a Mermaid) be it for the year of recording much too early or maybe even much too late, at any rate all performed and published within a few days. They could also be tagged as “Anyway-Garage” tho’, and could be easily spun at any Garage frat party, right between 96 Tears and Pushing to Hard, maybe. Although the fuzz guitar and the snotty voices are missing, there’s something tho’ that sets them close to the classic Garage sound. I just wonder is it the wacky voicing, or the drums bashing? Or might it be the Yodeling of the Ski Bums, or the luscious stage dresses of the Ladybirds ? You decide! Consider this is an international compilation, and you will hardly find my picks on any other official or unofficial collection. Too stupid, too much non-Garage. What do you want, Sunny Boy?

UC354 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped – US Garage Gems, Vol. 59


Just a few weeks back we were working deep in the States’ goldmines, and her we are back again with more overseen / underrated / unknown / forgotten but shiny gems from little known groups and better known singles’ flip sides. By a quick look on the tracklist you will discover many no-name combos and unknown artists’ output that was stashed aside in the shelves of unsold records or mailed to DJs to gave the bands a chance of success in the national radio charts, at least. I just regret that Sandi & The Rockwoods’ promising 2 side acetate was abruptly cut off. Maybe Justin C can fix that at his youtube channel? This time, my booklet comes with just a few band pics but collects interesting notes on the artists’ bios. I’d like to know if there’s anyone who reads it (at least, partially) or maybe even prints it out and pastes it to a CD-libretto. Let me know!

PS: Once again, let’s praise all you tubers (and Chris at GarageHangOver) I mentioned in the booklet. My world would be empty without you.

UC353 – Scraping the Beer - Beat - Barrel, Teil 15


I told you we are scraping the bottom of the barrel, but I never thought I’d meet Freddy, Roy Black, and Karel Gott, and pick up their rare attempts of hipness. As expected, among the un - and overheard there are a few budget beaters whose singles on Tip or Tempo I would never ever have bought at Woolworth, in 1966, not even for half the price. But I also found some tracks by completely unknown artists without no trace of their whereabouts and recording dates (El Dorado, Tommies, Teddy Olaf & Gamblers). We start early in 56, but soon the beat boom conquers the German teenbeat market, with bands contributing with their own budget version, maybe in Deutsch language. And many colleagues from abroad give a hand, as from the UK, Sweden, Scotland and Czechoslovakia. Finally, we reach the border of the famous Schlagerland, I know, it’s not the German Carnival, and, no, thanks, I don’t think I’d like another beer. So let’s all enjoy the Billig Beat, and remember the final track’s chunky lines: "Love makes the flowers grow and makes them be happy”. Only in Germany in the 60s, maybe.

eYeGeNeYe presents: Dance Crazes 3



Back again in the beautiful lands of Dada, where you can freely mix „Do the...“ with any odd thing you like, as „Do the Lamp post“ ,or ”Do the Powder Puff",  specially meal’s ingredients as with “Do the cold Grits”. In my last 2 Dance Crazes sets, we’ve already had the Slop, the Shake, the Twist and The Hully Gully, and here’s some new dances you might never have tried out before, like The The Kangouroo, The Shake Bob, The Click, The Crunch, The Romp and the Stagger. Although the singer, serving as master of ceremonies, most often more or less clearly explains the steps to do with the new dance, I just wonder what moves were required for The Bombie, The Tanglefoot, The Peg, The Wadda-Do, The Slauson, The Tator and, most of all, The Pig?!? Anyway, it’s all pure fun from times long ago when these wild tidbits from equally black and white artists, male and female, were spun at all parties of the globe, for nearly 8 years time (58 to 66). So oinkoinkoink do the piggy wiggle / wall to wall/ do the slop / once you start, you can’t stop” . (statement confirmed by your compiler who has never stopped ever since…)

Beat Wunderbar; Un-Lost Tommyknockers; RiP 19


6 month have passed since my lastTommyknockers set, but as there’s no time in heaven, I’m sure my friend the Lolly Pope (R.i.P.) won’t have suffered waiting for more unreleased / uncompiled UK gems (as you might have).  To break the rule of this series, this time I have included more tracks by single artists (like Saints, Carefrees, Bogies) as their LPs / samplers were missing in my own collection (and maybe are missing in yours, too). The rest is what you expect to hear in our UK Beat Wunderbar club, from 63 to 69, in slightly chronologic order. So get down on your knees, and let Don Compilatius serve you with delightful manna and sweet mass-wine. Ego te absolvo, a nome di Werner, the late great Lolly Pope, creator of the PraeKraut Pandaemonium LPs and the original Tommyknockers series. Amen, Halleluyeah!

UC352 – 60S (mostly) Uncomped – US Garage Gems, Vol. 58



Hurrah! And welcome to Vol. 58 of this series of rare and (mostly) uncompiled 60s gems from the US. To break the rule, the first and the final track are from the 70s, but I think they fit in well and I couldn’t resist to their beauty (so to say). That set apart, my selection, as usually, expands from early pre-invasion Beat to plain psychedelia (63-68) . And most groups’ traces  are hard to re-discover, though I found a few band pix and a little bio-data (tho’ I’m not sure if the 3 Stumps you see on the cover are actually the same Stumps from Daytona, OH). Anyway, I’m sure you’ll get your fun! (I guess my fave tracks are #06 I’ from New Orleans and #14 Short Shorty!)
PS: huge thx to all youtube channels listed in the booklet!
