ROUTES - INSTRUMENTALS
That is one of those bands I would love to release myself on VOODOO RHYTHM RECORDS, just to make that clear... I met CHRIS JACK back in Japan when I was touring with my band, THE MONSTERS. The gig in general was amazing and wild. We had naked men and almost naked girls at the show... and a rock'n'roll scene that I dream to have in Switzerland, with lots of girls' bands. I was super impressed, then Chris told me he had a band. He gave me his recordings and I heard that like 20 times a day... It was something like 10 years after I met The Sonics. FUCKING KILLER. Anyway, time went by and we kept contact all these years... Now THE ROUTES released an album on the fantastic GROOVIE RECORDS, from Portugal. A full INSTRUMENTAL album, a super fox on bass and a animal on drums, with the new Jeff Beck on guitars. That is RAW WILD and OUT OF CONTROL guitar instrumentals with sometimes an EXOTIC touch as in 'Bossa Hossa Nova', in 'Shove-it' or in the beautiful 'Yeti Spaghetti' and SURF instrumentals like 'Luck Of The Devil' or the SMASHER 'Hang Eleven'. This album is a super INSTRO KILLER! If you like The Shadows only, it may not be your cup of tea... but if you live in the gutter and drink booze instead of water, this album will be the HOLY GRAIL FOR ALL YOU SURF PUNKS OUT THERE!" - REVEREND BEAT-MAN (Master Of Disaster)
SKEPTICS (BELGIUM) - SKEPTICS
Cryptic fuzz punk meets 60s influenced garage weirdos: no clichés, just super original super raw garage tunes. THE SKEPTICS are a unique one-man creation interpreted live by a French-Belgian three-piece combo. Already well-known in the international garage scene: two 7" on Frantic City Records (B), another one on Cheap Pea Records (USA), various European tours, reviews in Bananas Magazine (USA), City Trash (NL), Rock Hardi (F), Lost in Tyme (GR), etc. Sir Bart van Vraantijk played or is still acting in many other garage punk bands (in the tradition of The Sonics or The Monks, just to name few) such as The 60 Second Swingers (Fuzz Overdose + Howlin' Banana Records), The Mean Things (Soundflat) or Wild Zeros (Frantic City + Chick Pea Records). This album by THE SKEPTICS is a must-have for all garage freaks interested in NOW! music, and will do pretty well too on any turntable. 14 extremely exciting killers on vinyl, to be filed under Fuzz Punk!
