BACK IN STOCK! Too good to be true - further unearthed tapes from authors of highest grade pubescent garage / psych, INDEX!
Comes as more than good news, almost a sense of relief, now that we can start to slightly distribute our overly intense, unrelenting adoration for the original platter to more than the original 9 songs. Yes, these 13 streetwalker / sweetheart bonus blizzards, all but one or two, FULLY make the cut in our book.
Angsty, distorted themes for petty crime are scattered amongst soaring, hi-spec garage takes on songs The Byrds taught em. Like “Jill” - what the fuck is a song like this doing sitting in a cupboard for 50 years?!?! Sounds like a fierce, early version of The Clean running it in the red - EVERYONE feeling some sorta flicker of what cocky, youthful self-assurance would feel like when those DEEP, bellowing toms distort on the drum fills. Argh!!
Perhaps this is being dictated by our current playlist but we do get a similar sorta buzz out of Les Rallizes Denudes. WAY more direct body shots with the Index but with the sorta caveman simple rhythm unit sat high and proud while lead guitars get deep fried in distortion and whiz around your noggin like a convoy of ambulances with broken sirens. Best music!
Throw away bonus material business can take a fucking HIKE! Sanjay’s sound of the summer and probably the first thing we’ve agreed on since May.
