LOTHAR And The HAND PEOPLE - This Is It, Machines ['68/'69/1986]

''Today Is Only Yesterday's Tomorrow''

Lothar and the Hand People was a late-1960s psychedelic rock band known for its spacey music and pioneering use of the theremin and Moog modular synthesizer. The band's unusual appellation refers to a theremin nicknamed "Lothar", with the "Hand People" being the musicians in the band, who included John Emelin (vocals), Paul Conly (keyboards, synthesizer), Rusty Ford (bass), Tom Flye (drums) and Kim King (guitar, synthesizer).

The band was notable for being "the first rockers to tour and record using synthesizers, thereby inspiring the generation of electronic music-makers who immediately followed them." Formed in Denver in 1965, Lothar and the Hand People relocated to New York in 1966. The band jammed with Jimi Hendrix and played gigs with groups such as The Byrds, Grateful Dead, Canned Heat, The Lovin' Spoonful and the Chambers Brothers. Lothar and the Hand People played music for Sam Shepard's play The Unseen Hand, and was the opening act at the Atlantic City Pop Festival.

After three initial singles, Capitol Records released two albums by this short-lived band: Presenting...Lothar and the Hand People (1968, produced by Robert Margouleff) and Space Hymn (1969, produced by Nick Venet).
The band's most popular recording was the title song "Space Hymn," which received significant FM radio play.
The first album featured a notable "robotic" cover of Manfred Mann's UK hit "Machines" (composed by Mort Shuman), which Capitol released as a single. [wiki]

Crazy man Crazy! A bunch of hippies went wild with eloctronics and stuff. Funny avant-garde experimentation with different styles, a cross between early Zappa, Pink Floyd, Godz, Fugs... First noticed their name on the backcover review of legendary Pebbles vol.2. This here is a fine selection of tunes from their  two '68/'69 slabs. How Bizarre!

Few thoughts:

 ''This is the most crapy music in the world! But I like it''

''I am not sure what I just heard and I have no idea if it was good or bad''

"It is electronic country, a kind of good-time music played by mad dwarfs"
[Lenny Kaye]

JAMES BROWN - I Got You (I Feel Good) [1966] Vinyl Rip!!!

At the start of 1966, James Brown was at his peak as a crossover star, having hit the pop Top Ten twice in a row in the last six months, first with "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag," and then with his biggest-ever pop success, "I Got You (I Feel Good)." But Brown was a singles artist almost exclusively; for him, LPs simply constituted a different configuration in which to re-sell his singles. So, his '60s LPs consisted of his current hit plus previously released singles tracks. The I Got You (I Feel Good) LP was no exception: Leading off with the title track, it included songs that dated back to 1959's "Good, Good Loving." Of course, some of these tracks, such as "Lost Someone," "Night Train," and "Think," were among Brown's classics, so the collection on the whole is appealing, even if arbitrary. [William Ruhlmann]

JARVIS HUMBY - Assume The Position It's... [2003/7]

Try as we might, no one here can think of a name more British sounding than Jarvis Humby. He clearly must be the king of mod-swingers, this Humby character. What you say? Jarvis Humby is actually four blokes? Well then, they've set themselves up to quite a task with a name like that. They even put images of Keith Richards, the Who, the Beatles and a friggin' Union Jack on their album cover. Fortunately, these Humby boys deliver everything they promise. Pure liquid adrenalin R&B, complete with fuzzed guitars, white-boy blues vocals and an omnipresent Hammond that coats everything with a 1964 flavor. "99 Steps to the Sun" could be the official follow-up to ? & the Mysterians' "96 Tears," but they don't leave it at that. Opener "We Say Yeah!" is excellent if typical garage rock until the closing holler of "Yeah, yeah yeah" that you can imagine soundtracking the toga party scene in Animal House (originally filled by Lloyd Williams' "Shout"). "These Eyes" sounds like R.E.M. sounding like the Byrds, with it's antique 12-string tumble and "The 4th Man" is pure spy show/surf guitar goodness. Coming complete with white pants and Fender reverb, Jarvis Humby will make you want to grow your bangs, pop a couple of pep pills and head on down to Brighton to dance around and fight with the rockers. Vintage! [Joshua Glazer]

REAL COOL! UK Garage/Mod revival crew sole lp in the style of another legendary Brit gang THE PRISONERS. Little Steven likes 'em, Austin Powers likes 'em, Mr.Eliminator likes 'em... Check 'em out!

"A bunch of white guys trying to play black rhythm and blues and failing miserably. Thank God!"

MFC CHICKEN - Music For Chicken [2012]

Mid 60's Pacific North-West style greasy rawk'n'roll ramalama debut elpee by this London Frat/Garage combo. Just imagine The Sonics fronted by Screamin' Jay Hawkins, put few drops of Little Richard, Chuck Berry and The Kingsmen slop and you get the picture. For my money this stuff is in the same category as heavy weight R&B champion Barrence Whitfield. So ladys & germs if you ''Dig Thy Savage Soul!'' you gonna dig this too... even more! Do The Chicken!

THE STANDELLS - The Best Of [Vinyl Rip!!!]

''Yeah, down by the river
Down by the banks of the river Charles
Aw, that's what's happenin' baby
That's where you'll find me
Along with lovers, buggers and thieves''

This fine compilation came in '86 and was a reissue of '83 Rhino Rec. ''Best Of'' Lp but with different cover art [later in '89 it was issued as 18 trax CD but with somehow inferior sound]. It's a real cool overview on one of the TOP TEN U.S. 60's garage punkers. 
With legendary proto-punk stuff like Dirty Water, Riot On Sunset Strip, Mr. Nobody, Mainline, Try It, Medication, Barracuda, Why Pick On Me, All Fall Down... they manage to beat the Stones at their own game. 

''Frustrated Women Need To Be In By 12:00''

Ingeniously produced by Ed Cobb who wrote some of their best tunes [later on created a sound for another cult garage crew The Chocolate Watchband], The Standells went straight to the top of Garage Rock Pantheon.
This here is <360> Surfadelic Vinyl Rip! powerful audio assault for the best garage/punk experience. It's causing A RIOT!

''I'm going down to the strip tonight
I'm not on a stay home trip tonight
Long hair seems to be the main attraction
But the heat is causin' all the action''
