Captain Crunch & The Crew-Nowadays People
These guys were from Ohio and that’s about all I know. I found it on a solid psych comp Psychedelic Experience Vol.3 (Mystic Records). The guitar lead from 2:25 to the end is amazing
Cheap Time-Slow Variety
In a year of great albums, Tennessee trio Cheap Time and their newest album Exit Smiles (In The Red records) might have slipped through the cracks. This could slot in nicely with what’s going on out in San Francisco (Ty Segall, Oh Sees, etc). Garage rock shot through with early english punk and glam.
Ebonics-Rock & Roll/Partytime
Here are both songs from the A-Side of the Ebonics single on Daggerman Records, which I think came out in 2010. These guys are/were from San Francisco, I never heard anything else by them. Sloppy, noisy, garage punk. Yeah, I know that’s a trite description, but it fits. This kind of shit doesn’t need to be over analyzed. [click on arrow below to play]
The Original Three-This is the way I’m walking
This is from a 2005 album called Been Dealt a Losing Hand on Empty Records. I think they’re from the Memphis area and (CAUTION: falling names zone) The Black Lips, Alicja Trout, and Jay Reatard have something to do with this record [click on song title below to listen] 03 This Way Is The Way I’m Walking
