UC298 - 60s (mostly) uncomped; Non-Garage, Vol. 8

As usual, the tracks I collected for this series have one thing in common: they’re definitely not Garage! Either they are too early (like 55 and 58) , or too stupid (One Hot Dog, Abend am Red River), or too commercial (Hey Jean , Hey Dean) or they refuse to be tagged under the Garage label for other reasons. Anyway, I hope you’ll get your fun out of Tante Anna, Cleopatra, The Jinx, The Jingle Jump, and The Machabee, and you’ll pardon me for being un-pc (Mr. Kannibal, eat me one more time) . And if you listen closely, you’ll hear some sharp drumming and some hot guitar solo any Garage band would be proud of.

eYeGeNeYe Prod. - Kid's Hits - A Child's Guide to Garage-Music - pt. Six

Hi Kids (and all people with childish minds)! You’ve waited a long time, but finally here‘s more songs for all of you who are curious about that Garage music craze this site is all about. Once again, you’ll be listening to groups and artists from all the world, tho’ I’m not sure all songs I’ve collected were penned specially for children. Moreover, you might ask yourself what Spaghetti and Baccala, Yogi Bear, and Mickey Mouse have to do with, say the Seeds or Music Machine? At any rate, you’ll be introduced to some most attracting new dances like the Baby’s Boogie, the 4 Gears and the Dog’s Surf, learning a lot of interesting new words, like Ai au a et i ae, Kili Kili Watch and Kann-Gu-Wa. You never know when they might become useful, don’t you? Finally, I’m afraid there’s some songs in the book that are not really educational, talking about the Bomb, Tequila with Lemon and Rum, even mentioning the Mafia (Mazzarino) and suggesting to set your schoolbooks on fire (Les cahiers au feu)! As nearly all tunes clock in in less that 2’03" (kids will get bored after that), I’ve managed to stash 34 pieces on my CD. Maybe you’ll like one or two songs specially (my favorites are Bikini e Tamburé, Abra Kadrabra and What's a Wooly Bully). So I hope you’ll have some bold and unabashed fun, just like children can get (and don’t forget to put the apostrophe between Kid and sHits! )

UC297ab Surf Instros a Go Go, Part III


I admit it might be misleading to start this set with the date of the JFK murdering. At any rate, you’re welcome to the third edition of Go-Go Surf Instros. Once again my collection proves two things: First, Surf music was not limited to California or the US but had spread all over the world from Ecuador to South Africa and from the Philippines to even Paraguay. Second, as you will testify, starting with classic surf guitar licks (Wipe Out, Walk don’t Run) and drum breaks (Pipeline) Surf Music offers a wide spectrum of interpretation which makes it a true “genre” in its own right. I’ve featured some of the better know groups (The Buddies, The De-Fenders), whose repertoire is available elsewhere, but I bet you will hear most of the tunes for the first time here. Also, I’m happy I’ve found many nice group shots you can see in the booklet attached I hope you’ll dig. Cowabungaaaahhh!

UC296 – Surf Songs a Go Go, pt. 3


Welcome once again to Surf paradise! You might have heard a few songs before, but I think mostly all have never been comped or anthologied. As usual, I have widened the scope of this dlouble set slightly introducing  Ski surfin , Drag racing, and slot car racing, plus few tracks purists would hardly tag “Surf”. Anyway, although borderline, I hope you’ll agree they add an interesting twist to the listening, even if they were issued as early as ’59 (The Romans- Drag Race) or where recorded at the tail end of the wave (1966). As usual, they come in alphabetical order,  just like waves burst in wild, Surf boarders hail mostly from the infamous Hollywood factory (Johnston/Usher/Christian/Wilson), although some buddies from nations like Hungary, Belgium, France and Japan proof you can do the surf even if there’s no sea around. So wax down your surf boards, saddle your Woodie, and shoot the curl!
(pardon the bad quality of the cover shot, due to my bad printer)

UC296 - US Garage Gems, Pt. 43


Hi to all! Only 2 month ago precisely (July 18) I had posted the last US Gems set which means the stream might have become a creek by now but is still running. Thanks to various and valid youtube masters I have mentioned in the booklet, specially Dan’s Low Budget Showcase, Bolt24 Hot Sound, downstate sounds s and  bjorestorm (thx brothers). Digit them and you probably ‘ll dig up more. Anyway, here’s 28 tremendous terrific tracks, none of them ever comped anywhere but each one, in its own wacky way, a shiny GEM! A few groups a part, I had never even heard of the combos, tho’ I succeeded in finding some info, labelshots and bandpics. The time warp ranges from ’63 to ’69, groups hail from Montana to Florida, all strictly Garage, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy this new set!

Mod Party! . Vols. 9, 10, 11

Hi comrades, once again I’ve organized the soundtrack for your perfect Mod Party! As usual, I’m afraid you can’t easily tag this set, so I think “Mod Party!” is the best label, as I’m sure they played it and still will play this type of music at Mod meetings and Mod joints in London, Amsterdam, and Barcellona, even after nearly  5o years. What you get is a mishmash of Soul, black and white RnB, early Teen sound, Boogaloo, Tamla Motown, even some reminders of Reggae and Bossa Nova. I guess Spanish Shuffle, Shake  a Tailfeather, Shout! Bama Lama, She’s Looking Good  and Respect say it all. What puts these sounds apart from, say Beat music and “Garage”, is 2 facts: More black musicians than whities, and instead of mind wrecking fuzz riffs we get full blown brasses What this series has in common tho’, with the Garage comps, is that most of the singers and combos were 2nd league, widely unknown or, at best, underrated losers who hardly made it to the top but insisted in their own ways.  Sometimes wackier, sometimes wilder, sometimes even better, but always different, always extra-cool. So what are you waiting for? Get on Board of the night train, grab your dance partner, or try to find one, move your body and soul to the Mod Party sound, have fun! I need Love and Affection, not the House of Correction! I guess I’ve always been (and still am and will be)a MOD.

eYeGeNeYe productions presents: Un-Lost Tommyknockers, R.i.P. # 15

Well, it seems the Tommyknockers are firing their missiles once again cross the Pond. I’m happy to announce that I have saved 28 more corpora delicti from the vaults of the British catacombs, and I’m sure his Magnificence the Lolly Pope (RiP) would have picked them as well. (Hi mate, we never talked about the Bonzos but I’m sure they’re your fave Brit group as well). We start from some early Beat records and cover versions like Respectable, I Like It, that equal or even top the originals, and will finally hear some late 60s soft syke, but don’t be afraid, no lame slouches here! You will meet a few better known groups and artists though most combos were completely unknown to me and have never seen the light of any compilation. Plus some rare acetates and demo recordings, and 2 live tracks taken from a Swedish TV station. (To my ears, The Ivyes’ Shout! is one of the fastest and best versions of the 40 tracks I collected!) (michaelvee.livejournal.com/62202.html).  I wonder if someone can shed a light on the unknown groups. So get on your knees, praise the great late initiator of this series, and I hope you will appreciate the work of your humble compiler Don Speculatius.

01/ Heinz - Questions I can't answer
02/ Heinz - The Beating of my Heart
03/ Johnny Carr & Cadillacs - Respectable
04/ Starlings (Sparrows?) - I like it
