BEAT, BEAT, BEATSVILLE!: Beatnik Rock 'N' Roll

"Some people like to rock. Some people like to roll.
But me, I like to sit around to satisfy my soul.
I like my women short. I like my women tall.
And that's about the only thing I really dig at all."

"Hey Daddy-O! Don't hand me one of that Kerouac and Ginsberg jive. That's Drag-City! These are the sides I wanna hear. So what if they're all a put on?! Big Deal. The whole Beat Generation was a put on right from the beginning anyway. Man, I'll take Maynard G. over Jack K. any day. Or the Wild Man of Wildsville (Lord Buckley guesting on Beany & Cecil dig?!). Those cats know where life's at. Get Hip. This is the real score, the platter that puts the beat back into beatnik. Endsville!" A crazy set of cool '50s & '60s rock & roll, free-garageish sounds, beatnik poetry, hip-jazz and a whole lotta wacky weirdness. A few familiar tracks plus lots of really hard-to-find stuff, compiled into a set of instant party mashers! Absolutely staggering array of sounds, from Herman Munster opening off reading "Beat" poetry to Lord Buckley providing the voice of "Go Man Van Go" as The Wild Man of Wildsville and lots and lots of hipness in between."

"I belong to the beat generation.
I don't let anything trouble my mind.
I belong to the beat generation.
And everything's goin' just fine."

[Bob Mcfadden & Dor "The Beat Generation"]

THE STORY OF OAK RECORDS [Freakbeat/Psych 1964-68]

RG Jones' Recording Studio in Morden, Surrey would probably qualify as a historic landmark today, if it hadn't been long ago demolished by the local council. The Rolling Stones and The Yardbirds laid down their earliest demo recordings there, in 1962 and '63 respectively, and over the course of the ensuing decade Jones had a steady stream of clients, mostly young unknowns who left the premises with a handful of acetate demos made on the studio's in-house disc-cutter. The studio's own Oak label went a step further, issuing limited run vinyl pressings (usually just 99 copies, to avoid Purchase Tax) which were manufactured at Pye's nearby pressing plant. These records have become some of the most sought-after `60s artifacts, not only for their scarcity but because they contain some of the deadliest R&B and freakbeat ever made, as The Story of Oak Records amply demonstrates.

A 2LP vinyl issue appeared on Tenth Planet in 1994 but is now out of print. This CD version is a somewhat curtailed version of that set, omitting several of the weaker tracks and making some key substitutions, including the addition of several killers not on the vinyl edition.

Getting to those first, The Four Degrees provide a raving version of "Too Much Monkey Business", modeled after The Yardbirds, but with more teen energy and some bangin' Jerry Lee-style piano work; I love how the harmony vocal drowns out the lead on the chorus. Also new here, The Exiles' "Love In the Making" is an excellent charging beat number and The Phoenix's "You Are The Moon And The Stars And The Sun" is an upbeat pop-psych winner. However, the pick of the new bunch are The Gremlins, who give some freakbeat aggro to the Spencer Davis Group's "High Time Baby" with slashing amped-up guitar and an aggressive vocal from future Fleur de Lys member Chris (later Tim) Andrews. 

These Solskjaer-style `super subs' enhance an already stellar line-up that includes R&Beat gems by the likes of The Bo Street Runners and The Betterdays, freakbeat essentials by The Kingpins and The Game, and superb psychedelia by Amber and Mike Stuart Span, and not to forget the delectably mysterioso Velvet Frogs. 
[Mike Stax]

''Overview of the small but feverishly collected Oak custom label. This 23 track anthology includes all the Oak legends - The Game, The Kingpins, The Betterdays, The Mike Stuart Span, The Four Leaved Clovers, The Thyrds, The A-Jaes, Sons Of Man etc etc, as well as more recent discoveries. Full blown freakbeat/R&B/psychedelia spanning the years 1964-68.''

CRIME - Exalted Masters [2007]

"Crime were pioneers in San Francisco—playing the lowest-fucking-fi rock’n’roll the West Coast ever heard; a sound so sordid only the Electric Eels could compare. Crime were nefarious, witless bastards too, playing the infamous San Quentin prison in cop uniforms (Jesus!). Needless to say, these actions do not represent an algorithm for longevity, and, after only a handful of singles, Crime was dissolved. After their breakup in the early ‘80s, Crime’s cult grew. Crime’s influence on bands past and present is immeasurable—simply put, anyone name checking The Oblivians or the Wipers needs to go back to Crime for the source. Exalted Masters is the new LP by Crime. It’s mainly a collection of unrecorded Crime songs from the late ‘70s, finally recorded in 2007."

"As different from other punk reunions as CRIME was from other punk bands, most of the songs on this album are never-before-recorded songs from the band's 1970s set list. Original members Johnny Strike and Hank Rank are on board for this totally rippin' LP-only release."

Legendary 70's stoogesoid proto-punk SF cop-gang comeback slab. If you dig punk stuff like those of The Wipers, Pagans or Electric Eels this is for you. 
It's a CRIME-Time on Surfadelic, Dig!!!

THE SYNDICATE - The Egyptian Thing [California Garage 1965] Vinyl Rip!!!

''The story of the Syndicate runs along similar lines to countless other rock’n’roll bands in the mid-sixties. They got together to have fun, made some noise on the local teen scene, recorded a couple of singles, made a vain grasp for the brass ring, then vanished into thin air—all within the space of two magical years: 1965 and 1966.
What makes the Syndicate special, though, is those two hard-to-find singles. “My Baby’s Barefoot” (released on Doré Records in August 1965) and “The Egyptian Thing” (released on Dot in December 1965) are two of the most savage, hot-wired blasts of Punk R&B mayhem ever etched into wax, while the flipside of “The Egyptian Thing,” “She Haunts You” showed the group were equally adept at moody, minor-key material.
This LP presents all four of the band’s single sides along with four previously unreleased 1965 tracks of similar caliber, plus both sides of the rare 1963 Ris-Kays single featuring Syndicate front man Bill Rash.''

L.A. 60's garage crew famed for their '65 tunes ''My Baby's Barefoot'' & ''The Egyptian Thing'' included in Back From The Grave vol.7. The Syndicate were influenced by the British Invasion bands as The Rolling Stones, Zombies, Kinks, The Who... This here is a comp. of 45's and unissued recordings, a real cool collection in the rank of The Swamp Rats, The Squires, The Tempos, Zakary Thaks 60's stuff. Raw & Rare, Dig!!!

Scott.Never change a winning team, so the Mighty Gordinis bring you more of their exciting mix of 70's punkrock, 60's surf & hot rod & 50's rock&roll, a balanced mix of vocal songs & choice instrumentals."[Kris Verreth]
