Just got the latest Ugly Things mag last week, and it's a KILLER!! For those who haven't seen/read it yet, there's a lengthy and detailed interview with Johnny Echols on his time with LOVE, great articles on Groep 1850, The Electric Eels, Syndicate and tons more!! Buy it NOW!!!
Yep, got my copy! This thing really shouldn't be called a magazine, though. Each issue is really a friggin' BOOK. Mike Stax & co. never cease to amaze me with the work they do on each issue. Talk about a labor of love...
Everyone who's ever been interested in this kinda music needs to order each and every issue. Well worth your measly ten bucks.
Ugly Things goes from strength to strength , and is not delivered in a snotty "If you don't know , why should I tell you?'' kind of way. The Johnny Echols interview is so in depth , yet , so personal , it makes me want to defend e-mail interviews for the first time.
Buy "Ugly Things" so Prince Phillip can cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony of The Garage/Psych and Punk Hall of Fame , Shame and Infamy .
Got my copy the other day...all of the above mentioned articles/interviews are MUST reads!!!
And i finally got the full story on the band that did one of my fave songs, 'The Egyptian Thing' by The Syndicate!!!
Thanx Mike Stax!!
