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.
