You May See Me Cry
Thanks for all the kind words - they really make me happy!
Welcome to the 28th set and yet another downer/loser bunch of tunes.
We start out with a classic - I Can Go On by Riots.
I Can Go On is spooky and moody, slightly sounding like the Animals on a bad day.
Great guitar and harmonies.
Illusions is not as primitive-sounding but a bit more mersey-ish.
Her Own Way is a total loser ballad. From Feb '66.
You Let Me Down is soopah-spooky and bad vibes all the way.
Oncomers 45 are from 1967.
Shadow Casters dishes out this ditty riddled with hippy-dippy imagery and Byrdsy harmonies and some "baaa-bopbopbop-baa-baa" in the end.
Kick ass solo. April '68.
Same Old Worries. Aaah, I love this track. Also Byrdsy in its harmonies but that don't matter.
Incredible stuff. Reasons Why released three 45's (I think) and the one before this one has Tell Her One More Time on it and you can find it here:
Members are hellbent on surviving the breakup. They won't sigh, they won't cry and they won't die.
Instead, they'll get by. Without her. From April 1966.
Another classic, this time served by Best Things and their epic You May See Me Cry.
Best Things was really the Madhatters. I don't know why they reissued the 45 as Best things.
The flip is Chick Are For Kids.
Morning After released this jangling lament in 1967.
The guy in the song is getting a total teen-boner while he thinks of thing his girl does.
What a one-track mind. Funny he makes it sound so romantic.
You Know I Do by Crucibles is also a super-classic.
The song is galloping away then halts at the solo only to gallop away again chased by crashing drums and twangy guitars.
More loser garage! The Only Girl I Love is not too refined, and we like that don't we.
From August 1967.
"Aaaw, giddit now!"
Landlords try to calm things down again. They totally succeed with I'll Return.
The flip is called I'm Through With You and is a pretty nice ballad too!
MOVE OVER, LANDLORDS! Heeeere's Barry Ebling & the Invaders huffing n puffin the house down with the raw power of FUZZ alone.
Semi-fruity chorus, but they totally make up for it with fuxxxx and a baaaad attitude.
From Mars 1967.
Aren't we done with fuzz and primitive beats? NOOO!
Wild Things need to punish us first. Tell Me gots organ, gots fuzz, gots attitude. Gots it OHN!
Converts is so funny..
They're all "Don't leave me girl!" first, and then is all "there's fat chance baby that you'll ever get another man" and tops it off with the classy line "because you're not so hot!"
Next out is Cavemen (not the It's Trash-bunch) and their Sandy is a one-mic-hangin-in the-roof and is primitive, awesome, supercool and the best fukkin song on this set!
Last out is another classic - Intruders and their epic I'll Go On.
That was it this time. Thanks again for all the kind words. I will busy for a couple a weeks now so don't bother checkin in before mid august.
