RATIONALS - FAN CLUB ALBUM
The Rationals' "Fan Club Album" is legendary in collector circles as one of the rarest 60s garage artefacts known to man - only two test pressing copies are confirmed to exist. Consisting of unreleased outtakes from the bands earliest sessions in 1965 and 1966, the longplayer was intended as a farewell "thank you" to the group's loyal fanbase by the band's producer and mentor Jeep Holland, when he parted with the Rationals in late 1968. Save for one cut, this Big Beat vinyl reissue reprises the album's original tracklist and running order, and the fully illustrated sleeve comes with detailed liner notes.
SATELLITERS - OUTTA HERE
The album, available both as CD and LP, offers an archetypal and authentic Garage sound that might just as well have been recorded in the 1960s. Compared to their previous two albums, the record is a little bit more back to the roots and thereby perfect for any lover of 60s Garage Punk and fuzz guitars.
SPIVS, THEE - BLACK AND WHITE MEMORIES
Thee Spivs are back with their second album, following their debut from 2010 the critically acclaimed 'Taped Up'. Thee Spivs are Ben Edge (git/vox), Dan May (bass) and Steve Coley (drums). Rock'n'Roll hasn't been this much fun for years, give it a try, you might like it!
