UC243 – Non-Garage 5

Either too early, too stupid, too commercial, too wild or too childish, the 30 tunes collected here were often recorded in aim to jump on the (whatever?) wagon and mostly published (or should have gotten published) under the dubious "Novelty- Record" tag.
Well, again (for the 5th time) my tunes are definitely not Garage, although….. some affinities do shine through, like the occasional fuzz, stripped to the bone recording, we-have- to- be-out-by-tomorrow-  production, and non- conformist approach bursting out in hilarious FUN!
I’m afraid, the Non-Garage - series might become my favorite one, and I hope I’ve managed to dig up 60s single-records forgotten or never heard before. At any rate,  tunes that defy classification but might encounter the tastes of Garage-aficionados and alike. But now, unhook seat-belts, and enjoy the voyage through unabashed stupidity!

UC242 – Beat from the Boot, pt, 7

Who said that diggin’ in Italy’s 60s you don’t find any nuggets no more? False, my friends, as this set will hopefully prove. To my best knowledge, none of the 31 tracks have ever seen the light of reissues before, and they all sure deserve to be saved from oblivion. I also have excluded tracks that did appear on private compilations such as Caveman’s Atto di Forza series et al.  I don’t tell you what my favorite tracks are, but I assure you there’s a lot. Finally, if you read the booklet attached, you’ll find out more facts and ditties such as about Lolita (R.i.P.) who got brutally murdered (case still unresolved!), the never heard Mexican recording by Caterina Caselli with a unknown group, and Pier Pasolini supported group Chetro & Co.. The only question remaining is: will there be Beat from The Boot Vol.8?

UC241 Verlorene Mädchen Teil 5

While compiling this set I was aware I will be risking to trespass the border to dreadful German Schlagermusik, rightly also known as Humpta Humpta. But at the end, I noted that many of the sounds I collected recall Ska, Calypso, and Mexican Brass music. I admit this set might be appreciated mostly by my German speaking followers, and I really wonder if those who don’t will get their kicks out of it as well. For sure, as for originals as for cover versions, Germans took the job very serious to translate the original English text or write a new one which could never be superficial or ridiculous but had to “make a sense”. German quality, that is. That’s the reason why you’ll enjoy truly hilarious (and sometimes deeply serious) lyrics. Anyway, I’m happy the girls here hail not only from Germany but from the US, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, the UK, and even Japan and make this compilation appealing not only for German speaking listeners, I hope. Tracks are from 1964 to 1973 ( but don’t be afraid), in alphabetical order (My girls don’t mind). Sorry for some bad audio, I couldn’t get it better. Have fun y’all!

PS: good dbs and forums for German 60s music are http://www.rocknroll-schallplatten-forum.de, and http://memoryradio.de
PPS. Most of the tracks where posted on youtube by WaroftheSaucerman - Indien kann warten – Andrea Götze , vielen Dank furs Teilen Leute!

Un-Lost Tommyknockers, The RiP Edition, R.i.P. #10

For the tenth time now, I’m flying the flag once hoisted by the Lolly Pope. After so many rarities saved from oblivion, the risk is, the well of UK Beat is running dry and you’re scraping the bottom. Let’s put it this way: The combos and artists collected here are mostly losers, they all have somehow missed the train to success but still deserve to be heard. And as I know my pal Wenne the Pope loves losers, I’m 100% sure he will enjoy this set. Some tracks might have slipped his attention, others might be new even to him, and I’ve put some special features in the mix that maybe have been sampled somewhere else but are too good to be forgotten. The sets are more or less in chronological order and cover a mixed bag of genres like pre-Beat, Soulish sounds, some ballades and a few psychedelic gumdrops. Last track is dedicated to Wenne, we never talked about them but I’m sure he must have loved the Bonzos, so take my devotion to Viv, mate, next time you meet him… Halleluyeah!

UC240a/b – US Garage Gems #32

Who said the creek of Garage goodies is running dry? Not even 2 month have gone since my last edition of the series, and in the meantime I’ve collected 60 more tunes , and to my best knowledge none of the tracks was ever compiled before.  Some of the groups‘ stories are covered by the phenomenal GarageHangOver site (Hi Chris!) and the fab BasementWalls blogspot , weather many other  bands seem lost in oblivion. At any rate, you’ll hear a pretty wild collection loosely put in order from 1964 to 1968, with a few ballads and some TV-spots thrown in the mix.  (The Illusions‘ "Burning Ember“ is my favorite track,  I’m afraid, but also The Glencoves’ Keep away,  The Coronaders’ Center of Attraction and The Trackers‘ Jilted Fever). I’m sure you dig.  If you know some missing data on the groups, let me know.

- Interlude - Siam Sound, A private Collection

This has nothing to do with Garage, not even with Pop or Psyche.  But I promise it’s hyper-psychedelic , strange hypnotic sounds all the way through that will open your inner eye and take you on a flight above the paddy fields of Chian Rai to the dance halls of Ang Thong, from Luk-thung ("Country songs") to Malam tunes. I can’t say when exactly these songs were recorded, somewhere from 64 to 1982, as Soundway indicates on its 2 “Siam Sound”  CDs of which I’ve borrowed a few tracks. The recording date really doesn’t matter though since the music will take you back to cultures whose roots were planted under the Khmer empire and in the Reign of Siam. And once the singers and singeresses have warmed up their voices, I’m sure they will capture you with their unique mysterious charms. I have to apologize for the incomplete tracklist as it wasn’t easy (and sometimes impossible) to transliterate Thai to our alphabet.
PS thanks go out to Youtube channel "Thai Funk"

UC239 – Cool Canadia, part 2

For the second time in cool Canada. As one may expect, we get a load of francophile cover versions tho’ I skipped the pedestrian ones and I hope the tracks I selected all excel by slight differences / interpretations and have a special twist. I promise none of the tunes are lame and none has never been reissued before, stunningly, not even in the homeland as far as I could check. At any rate  I think the whole set will prove that Canadian Beat is topmost! (and maybe the Révoltes’ splendid version on Good Times is the precursor of Dub?)

PS.: I have to send a huge thank you to Benjamin Shulman who posted most of the tracks on his youtube channel, great taste mate!

1/ Neil Sheppard - Beyond The Shadow Of A Doubt
2/ Frères Flamingo, Les - Dansez Le Shake
3/ Noel Delisle & Kon - Dors - Au Beau Pays Du Quebec
4/ Bel - Air, Les - Thunderball
5/ Ardels - So Glad You're Mine
6/ Donald Lautrec - La Fille Qui Me Plait
7/ Lynx, Les - Petit Frère
8/ Dean Curtis & Lively Set - Stuck On Yourself
9/ Du - Cats - Maybelline
10/ Du - Cats - Good Thing Going
11/ Ook - Piks, Les - I can tell
12/ Ook - Piks, Les - I don't love you
13/ Del - Hirs, Les - Elle m’attend
14/ Cesar & les Romains - Tu n'ameis que moi

Interlude – Encyclopedia of British Bands, The Early Sixties

This is a true gem, my friends!  I found these pre Beat tunes at the youtube channel “Paul Loneliness” (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmzCIhFcevGk0uHYiUUJrLA), divided in 11 parts, and it was an easy job to make 2 CDs (and a little booklet) from it. Kindly, the author gave me his permission to post the set here, so you’re lucky to get 45 tunes of which only 16 tracks have appeared somewhere else tho here they are inserted in the right time frame. I think this set proves that the tunes and bands were musical “humus” for the Beatles when they played the Cavern, so it seems the Fab Four didn’t actually have to “invent” from scratch. Not sure if it’s thanks to the author’s great taste, but to my ears none of the tracks sound lame, not even the slower ballads.  I hope you’ll dig the pre Beat sound as much as I do. Huge thanks go out to Paul (or whatever is his real name)!
