eYeGeNeYe presents: Beat Wunderbar; Un-Lost Tommyknockers; RiP #17



I’m afraid, my friend the late great Lolly Pope will  draft up an apostolic exhortation to reproach me for my short fallings. In fact, he rarely repeated tracks from anthologies and only exceptionally he put more tunes by the same group on one same set, and I have walked that way of exception.  Up to 4 tracks from the same group, and several which have appeared on some rare anthologies which I’m sure you don’t want to hear all the way through but only the tunes that sound more in the Beat vein. In between, of course, many unknown groups and rare tidbits from acetates. Maybe someone can shed a light on them. My top group on this selection is The Mersey Beats from Lillipool, I found an unreleased tune and some wacky photos you might enjoy..  So I hope my Pope will be generous with his humble Postulatius and forgive me that this set is breaking the rule of reliquies , comprehending that they all are worth to be picked up from the holy catacombs to be served to the community. Let the good times roll!

UC323ab Ultimate Pigtrad



After more than 4 years have passed since my "More Pigtrad!” compilation (UC125), time was overdue for the Ultimate Pigtrad collection. As the Danish 60s scene is widely (one might say: completely) covered by various record labels (Frost, Grufus, Universal) and series (Jacks Beat Anthologies, Viking Beat, Beatkillers, Absolute Hit House, Pigtradsmusik, ecc), it was hard to pick some tracks that have not been considered yet. So I concentrated on the "minor", lesser known groups and their overheard output. Of course, Danish resident aficionados will most probably be familiar with many of the tracks I selected; still I hope repeating doesn’t hurt and you will also find some never heard 45s and sound clips. Like the live-tunes of the Ladybirds who are the stars of this set, of course, thus I have honored them with 4 tracks and some tasty pics on an entire page of the 13 pg-booklet.
For the rest, all information comes from the unique archive "Danish Rock, Pigtrad and Beat 1958-68” (http://www.dk-rock.dk/) which has done a great job entering all (at least nearly all) Pigtrad groups together with a bio and full discography. If you digit the group / song names one by one in the youtube browser, you will surly find more uncomped goodies. Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy my set! A Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin’ On!

eYeGeNeYe presents: Int’l Twisters, part 3


Around and around and up and down we go again! You asked for it (otherwise you would have skipped this page), and now it’s too late: You have to get through 100+ versions of Twist songs and so many versions of Let’s Twist again, Go Kart Twist and YaYa Twist.  As I already commented on part 2, this set too proves that the Twist should be regarded as a genre in its own rights, a global  phenomena that swiped the world for 3 years at least.    “BaBa PaPa ..Twist!”  was the winning pattern to mix with whatever comes to mind, and the result is always hilarious, innocent  fun. So prepare for Cha Cha –Twist, Tango Twist, Twist in the Jungle, Totem Pole Twist, Locomotion Twist, Sexy-Twist. Train-Twist, Orbit Twist, Pedro Twist, Goose Twist, Small Elephant Twist, Napoleon Twist , Diabolical Twist and even Jodel Twist as performed by GDR artists in the Swiss Mountains. Remember You asked for it! Have a Twistin’ fun!

eYeGeNeYe presents: Vinyl Fun


This is definitely too good and too funny not to post it! All tracks come from youtube channel VinylFun and the name couldn’t have been chosen better. I promise, each track I’ve picked is better that the next, and you won’t keep from laughing about discs melted to the table, Chinese chop suicide, c-sides and sea-sides, unreliable geezers, and impossible names like Engelbert Humperdink (instead of Fred) . All tracks (except one) come from the UK and stand for a British tradition of ‘fun’ records (spoken or vocal) that is much different to that one of the American “Novelty” records. From Peter Sellers to Marty Feldman and even Benny Clark, I have selected 32 vocal recordings, all with a swing, and many with electrical gueetars. You will hear singers stepping out of the chorus, dropping their sneakers to follow like a shadow, and locked in the echo-box. My set ends with a lovely version of that unforgettable “End of the Season”, as originally done by … the Kinks! I still wonder what’s funny about Benny Hill’s poised "Garden of Love” and “Andalusian Gypsies” and were the 'Boom Oo Yatta-Ta-Ta' and the 'Rama Lama Ding Dong' and the “Pop Shewhupshewhup” went. You will find out.
PS Go visit the VinylFun channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChWtm9ECkSBPx6lkL5-_dIg)  and you will sure discover more funny records (that man has great taste, hats off) .

UC322 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped – Verlorene Mädchen, Teil Acht


Hallo Beatfreunde! Es ist mir eine Ehre, nunmehr die 8the Folge der Verlorenen Beatmädchen zu präsentieren. Bei meinen Abstiegen in die Goldgrube dringen dann und wann immer wieder Mädchen- und Frauenstimmen an mein Ohr, und sofort werden meine Knie weich und meine Seele kriegt eine Gänsehaut. Auch wenn nicht ohne die Hilfe ihrer männlichen Kollegen, ob an der Schießbude, im Orchestergraben oder am Mischpult. Aber es sind die mal fröhlichen mal traurigen aber immer süßen Stimmen der Girls and Ladies, die dem Ganzen die Krone aufsetzen. Natürlich heißt es stets aufpassen, um nicht in bierseeliger Humpta-Stimmung oder im Festzelt auf der Kirmes zu versacken, aber viele Strophen machen wohl die deutsche Schlagertradition aus und bringen gut zu schmunzeln (und zu trinken). Tatsächlich verblüfft mich immer wieder die poetische Absicht der deutschen Verseschmiede, und ich werde mir bewusst ,dass mir ihre oft unschuldigen, scheinbar einfachen Zeilen („…Einsamkeit ist Mangel an Gelegenheit" oder „..das Glück kommt zu dem nur, den es mag“) (Fortes Fortuna adiuvat) mehr sagen als es die beste deutsche Dichtergarnitur vermag. Auch wenn es immer um das eine Thema geht ( er liebt mich / liebt mich nicht mehr / liebt mich schon wieder). Es wird schon werden! Hauptsache, die Sache hat Schwung (und das Booklet ist vollgepackt mit vielen spannenden Autogrammkarten und Portraitfotos!) Ich wünsche viel Vergnügen!

UC321 – 60s (mostly) Uncomped – US Garage Gems , pt. 50



To celebrate the 50th edition of this series, many more or less infamous groups and artists have gathered. In first line, some from the 50s and early 60s  so too early to be tagged as Garage groups tho’ they all embody the same Garage spirit and kick out the same energy of their later descendants. Our further expedition takes us down into the “real scene” and we can dig up some shiny, unheard or at least underrated, gems such as by Johnny Gee, the Beagles LP or Bumpy & the Jaguars. After the happening, our trip ends softly with tunes that take us to psychedelic meadows, right near (tho’ not too near!) to some hippies and jug bands. I’m proud all tracks of this jubilee set are uncomped with only a few featured on some hard to get anthologies. I’m sure even Garage aficionados will appreciate some fresh tunes you only get here. And we’re far from scraping the bottom of the gold mine, I mean, so let’s wait for volume # 51. Cheerio!

UC320ab - 60s (mostly) uncomped - Non-Garage, Vol. 10


If your collection starts with Pushin‘ too hard and ends with 96 Tears, then this set will most probably best neglected. I’m aware songs about Popeye, Hungarian choruses, Armenian pop music, novelty giveaways, cheapo sampler instros and German Humpta can’t be tagged Garage. At any rate, all tracks I’ve collected have one thing in common, fun. And all tracks excel by an IDEA, which maybe a catchy line, a funny noise, or an unusual environment like space, the jungle, the Arabian desert or days of Peking. It’s because of that Idea you won’t forget my tunes after the first time hearing. Also, you’ll meet lots of interesting animals like apes, frogs, moles, Popeys, Sputniks and Flintstones, and you will learn new useful words such as Oomp Boomp, Macacafoo and Yamasuki. Another unique factor, my non-garage tracks have in common: They can easily be mixed chronologically, a song from 67 can be followed by a record from 58, and I don’t feel disturbed. More than that, the contrast in change of genre and timeslot creates an interesting , variable all-over listening experience. At least to me, as I feel I’m the only one to collect those stupid, childish examples of innocence and unabashed fun (apart from the Cramps’ Lux Interior and the delicious Tittishakers albums, maybe). For the first time, to make this set more accessible, I’ve entered a few comments and some translations in the booklet. I’m not sure you’ll read it, let me know. But now: Yabba Dabba Dooo, and Wooleh Booleh!

UC319 - 60s (mostly) Uncomped - Rare Ossies and Unheard Kiwis, Vol. 5


Meanwhile, in the Australian bush….. welcome back, for the fifth time, in the land of the Billibong and the chewing gum. As you will notice, Australian / New Zealand garage ranks somewhere between UK Merseybeat and snotty US garage, and you might say it incorporates the best and most essential of both genres. Hardly a horn, and just a few Farfisas, no production  gimmicks. Obviously, the technological standards of national recording studios and production facilities were suffering, but you can’t make the same statement regarding the crowd’s enthusiasm and the musicians’ persistence. And even as many groups tried their luck overseas, apart from the exceptional Easybeats, it was not before the Bee Gees and AC/DC that an Australian artist would take off internationally. Anyway, this selection focuses on the uncompiled output of the minor groups, and on my our way down the pit I have found some nuggets by bands you – like me -  might never have heard of, such as the Blue Streaks, The Changing Times, The Cyclones and Rick & the Bad Boys (unless you are OZ/NZ resident, that is). All of them, plus a few rare pieces of the better known groups, deliver rough, high energy fueled Beat and Pop music. What makes me wonder is that many singers, tho’ from an English speaking continent, produce the most hilarious examples of Dada wording you can imagine. Fun don’t need studying. I’m sure you’ll enjoy!
