I can't resist to add some notes myself: This LP came out in on Midnight Records, and contains 9 originals written by D. Herrera and 4 tunes written by his friends. As you may noticed if you read the names in David's notes, the musicians in this record are the cream of the NYC garage scene: members of the Optic Nerve, the Fuzztones, the Headless Horsemen, the Mad Violets, the Blacklight Chameleons and others.
More on the NYC scene you can read here. David John Herrera has a great web site, with much more info about Cheepskates. I din't want to go in a track-to-track description, but here are a few notes, just to get you curious:. Some Folks - rock'n'roll with odd vocals.
Frog Booth begins with tribal rhythm from the bass of Orin Portnoy and the drums of Bob Baker and a slow surf riff, then Jon Weiss's sax hovers above and a psychedelic guitar takes the lead and lifts the whole track for a short flight. The Fall - A streight blues with some fine slide guitar from Mr.
Herrera in fact he plays all instruments in this track - and sings too. As David Herrera wrote, this LP is long out of print and there's no chance for a re-release. You can visit D. Herrera in myspace. Thanks David for your offer.
Their sound was part of the Neo Kyma New Wavea style that blended the acoustic guitar-based psychedelic folk of France and England with the traditional bouzouki music of local Greek fishermen's bars. A lovely girl in her early 20s, Popi Asteriadi sings on about half these songs, accompanied by guitarist Lakis Pappas, who sings on some of the other tracks by himself and in duets on others.
There's purity and tenderness inherent in both of their voices, with the evocative beauty of the Greek language transcending the need to comprehend the lyric's meaning. A sense of wide-eyed and wondrous discovery pervades the album-to be young, beautiful, and in love in Greece.
All is perfect, yet the ache of the heart remains; no amount of earthly beauty can satisfy them. The title track finds Asteriadi singing a soft ballad over the gentle acoustic picking of Pappas, who then takes a vocal turn on the next track, "And You Dare Talk to Me," Kai ustera mou milas aided by an unabashedly romantic string section, tinkling piano, and drums, his voice a sweetened, husky, romantically tortured croon.
More traditional Greek melodies get dusted off along with the bouzouki and tin whistle for tracks like "Not Our Wine," Den einai aspro to krasi mas with Pappas adding vibrato to her voice as she harmonizes with Asteriadi.
With its mix of melodies old and new, rich tradition merges with a global movement of youth, and no one leaves until the sun comes up, even though they know with that sinking Sunday feeling that their boat's leaving at 9 a. Great guitar finger picking technique and a mellow voice over the guitar. Percussion is also been discovered in this album.
A folk album with many early Dylan-Drake influences. Ok he is not Drake, but maybe a new Drake is been born…. Why not? The Review One of the most highly sought — after artefacts of the British Psychedelic area, having started life as The Country cousins, changed their name to the more evocative Forever Amber in response to shifting musical tide of The love Cycle was the brainchild of undergraduate john M.
Hudson, an aspiring Brian Wilson style pop auteur who wrote the entire set, co produced it and also helped out on piano and harpsichord. Bearing in mind the limitations of the set up — the six piece Forever Amber semi professional status, their extreme youth, the fairly makeshift studio facilities- The Love Cycle was a ludicrously ambitious work. The album featured non less than five lead vocalists over its 16 cuts, which ranged from ornate, Left Banke-leaning harpsichord based pop to full-blown psychedelic freak out.
The overall effects is akin to a low-budget garage band version of Zombies masterpiece Odyssey and Oracle, and would have been a notable achievement for a major label act. Utilizing a revolving lineup of bassists and drummers, Kostelich and Kastelic have released five genre-spanning albums on Kostelich's own indie-wunderkind label, Get Hip by Matt Carlson AMG 1. The self-titled one has all of the Anatolian Rock features everyone gets excited about- crazy phased rhythm guitar "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz"fuzz leads playing snaky minor-key melodies "Ince Ince"herky-jerky time signatures, etc.
This album is from slightly later than most of the prime Turkish psych cuts of the other acts mentioned above, and it seems in the years between and the monophonic synth made its way to Turkey, and on a couple of the tunes here it's used to great effect check "Gitme," "Yaylalar," and the aforementioned "Yaz Gazeteci Yaz" Plus Selda's got a great, passionate, declamatory voice.
Get it HERE. The album "Vurulduk Ey Halkim Unutma Bizi" is a far more traditionally folky and mellow affair file under "World" - I think there's only electric instruments on two of the tracks. This album also includes more folk cuts from earlier singles as bonus tracks.
This one just went over MB so I had to split it. Here you can find the original post and tracklists. Get them fast Amboy Dukes - - Amboy Dukes. Just found this recently The debut album by the Amboy Dukes should be high on collectors' lists. Fusing the psychedelia of the early Blues Magoos with Hendrix riffs and British pop, the band which launched the legend of Ted Nugent has surprises galore in these lost grooves.
The latter tune was the flip side of the group Them 's single "Gloria," but Ted Nugent and the boys totally twist it to their point-of-view, even tossing a complete Jimi Hendrix nick into the mix.
The Amboy Dukes issued this as the single backed with their sitar-laden and heady "Psalms of Aftermath. Those latter-day Dukes projects took themselves too seriously and got a bit too out there. The dancing piano runs and Ted Nugent confined to a pop-blues structure certainly got the benefit of Shad 's record making experience, and it is a treat.
Of the 11 tunes, seven are band originals. Taking on a faithful version of Cream 's "I Feel Free" is interesting, and like Slade 's first disc, they inject enough cover material to make the product interesting for those who had never heard of this group.
As essential to the Amboy Dukes' catalog as the non-hit material on Psychedelic Lollipop was to the Blues Magoosthe first album from the Amboy Dukes is a real find and fun listening experience. This is a far cry from Cat Scratch Feverand that's why fans of psychedelia and '60s music should cherish this early diamond. Band with no success in Some fine musicanship and fairly decent tunes, this recording works as having a certain dated 'cool kitch' feel to it.
The songs — often linked by brief interludes — are a mixed bag, though, that seem to indicate a confusion over direction, Nothing Seems Right - Shane Faubert - Squirrelboy Blue (CD, or a bit of a psychedelic throw-in-everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach. There are haunting tunes with a folk-rock base and a faint Renaissance ballad melodic influence, jaunty narratives with a vaudevillian air that bear the mark of then-recent albums such as Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and harder-rocking period psychedelic tracks with a bent for unpredictable bittersweet progressions and vocal harmonies.
It's unusual, and in some senses attractive. But to be less charitable, there's a sense of listening to a generic psychedelic band that sounds better than many such acts mostly by virtue of benefiting from Elektra's high-class production, here handled by Paul Rothchild of Doors fame. Put another way, the songs themselves aren't as good as their arrangements. This is a very unique album by a very unique band formed in New York. It's made up of so many different musical styles ranging from Jefferson Airplane late 60s psych to almost medieval troubadourian dansa's or balada's.
The term 'Ars Nova' pertained to a period in French medieval history, in the early 14th century. Translated it means 'new art or technique'. Listening to this LP is like a freaky acid trip back to that time! The band employs such a variety of instruments, you never know what you'll hear next. From psyched out distorted guitars, to banjos and bells, brass and classical instruments The music is quite varied throughout. It was originally released on the 'Elektra' records label inand I feel it's light years ahead of what anyone else was doing at the time, with the exception of maybe 'East of Eden' over in the UK.
Paul A. This is a schizophrenic album to be sure, combining good-natured rockers with weird-yet-accessible avant-folk. The album opens with a killer one-two punch: the first cut is the dynamite soul-rocker "Call Me Diamond," which is followed by the wistfully loping "Flowers of the Forest," whose hook the "deep is the river running through my life" part is the best little melody Cat Stevens never wrote. After that we drop into "Very Cellular" territory for a couple of tracks, where we can enjoy weird modal melodies and raga excursions before returning to rock with "Warm Heart Pastry," where Heron's backing band is The Who!
It's a great song with lyrics as questionable as the Stones' "Brown Sugar"but Heron sounds a little overwhelmed by the musicians playing behind him, though my jury's still out on whether or not he's outclassed by his bandmates or just mixed too low. And then Saturday, April 07, Hawkwind - Hall of the Mountain Grill I love how the members of Hawkwind are always so grimy in their photos.
It's the sort of grungy look you can only get by rolling around in a field all day because you're tripping which is something I suspect Hawkwind did quite a bit of.
Someone said "more Hawkwind" at some point recently, so I thought I'd put this little treat in everyone's Easter basket. Say Psych Folk Rock if you want, as some people do. They are also two of my favourites. If you need more info, check wikipedia, both bands have an article there. Times Of Change. An old, old favorite -- in more ways that one, since these guys hail from the '70s. Well, perhaps they are or were? Los Dug Dugs are, for us, a perfect blend of rock n' roll things we love: garage rock, psych-pop, power-prog.
Lotsa cowbell, fuzz guitar, and flute, yes flute Part Tull, part Beatles, part Kinks, part Kiss They picked up a few gigs across the border in the States, and smuggled the sounds of American and British rock and roll back with them. The influence of outsider music went beyond simply chords and attitude--Los Dug Dug's also adopted the English language, becoming the first of their native brethren to sing in English.
Shortly thereafter, an American tourist heard them in Tijuana and offered to finance the band's attempt to break through in America's densely populated rock scene in the late-'60s. They flew to NYC, but ultimately failed to find success Back at home in Mexico, the group's music was received well and their fame began to rise Then, just as Dug Dug's had proven to be trendsetters in switching to English vocals, they sparked an interest among Mexican bands to return to their Spanish roots.
By the group's second album, recorded inthe band had shrunk from a quintet to a trio and had switched back to singing in Spanish in the process. They went on to record a total of four albums in the '70s. If you liked the first Ultimate Spinach album, than you'll Love this one!
The Bachs - Out Of The Bachs Since the big-traffic blogs I checked that were sharing this in past Album) all seem to have let their links expire, I doubt I'm stealing anyone's thunder by putting this up here and keeping it deservedly in circulation.
Ahem: This album is a private pressing in an edition of only Nothing Seems Right - Shane Faubert - Squirrelboy Blue (CD. Rare as hen's teeth but far more enjoyable. Sweet, naive melodies crash into passionate performances and fuzz guitar solos, and that one microphone being held in position with a beer bottle somehow manages to capture everything necessary.
There are a couple of places where the album loses some momentum, but overall, this is seriously high-quality Nuggets-level 60s garage pop? The album includes all the best parts of acid-folk and psych as a long meditative track, but also funky tracks with tablas, violin, percussion, flute and sitar.
Sida A: 1. Kungen 3. Att ta och att ge 4. Skeppet 3. Here's the AMG review: Lightning-Rod Man rescues 15 tunes cut by this unit, including the single and over a dozen outtakes and demos. Almost exclusively original material, most of these tracks were recorded in and They show the group pursuing a slightly eccentric folk-rock vision that neither bears much similarity to George's more famous work nor matches the best work done in this genre by their L.
A few songs cut toward the end of the decade feature a heavier, bluesier sound that show George edging in a different direction. Frank Zappa produced and played on a couple of the demos, and one-time Mothers of Invention members Elliot Ingber and Roy Estrada show up on a few others. An enjoyable vault find, but not a major revelation. Their first single was in after winning some "battle of the bands" competition.
Notably it was produced by Rob Younger of Radio Birdman fame. It wasn't until that they managed to get a full-length album out, The Cave Comes Alive! Despite their difficulties at maintaining a stable line-up, The Lime Spider's neo-psychedelic garage rock made quite an impact.

Like rock ‘n’ roll itself, power pop has come to mean many different things to different people. Just as rock ‘n’ roll (or rock, if you must) is commonly used in reference to Little Richard, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, KISS and Duran Duran, with little consensus among fans of the individual, contradicting styles, so too has the meaning of power pop been diluted over time.
