A rough shot of garage from the jukebox today. Some fuzzed up British nuggets and a pinch of San Francisco that are sure to please fans of this feature.

[MP3] Butch Engle & The Styx - I'm a Fool
An easy rocker out of SanFran that starts out vocal heavy and then pops into gear when the bass kicks in. Engle and The Styx weren't exactly chart toppers but this little taste of a West Coast swinger proves them well.

[MP3] The Accent- Red Sky At Night
A nice dose of garage-psych with phaser slapped all over the place and a heavy crumble of a bass line and just the right amount of acoustic breakdowns. A strange psych take on an old sailor's expression.

[MP3] Les Goths - Turn Over
Not exactly representative of their name, Les Goths were anything but dour. This spaced out psych rocket plays the phaser like another instrument and wields a popcorn drumbeat that propels the whole thing along at a fearsome pace. A damn shame they didn't produce more in this vein.

[MP3] The Sand - Listen to the Sky
Huge harmonious vocals smash into a bit of psychedelic imagery on this track by The Sand. A bit of Small Faces can be felt in this one, but mixed with a much more experimental nature than they ever reached. The breakdown is pure ridiculousness but the melodies more than outweigh the interruption.

[MP3] The Great Society - Heads Up
A quick dose of strum and a swagger of blues from the West Coast on this Great Society track. Very strong female vocals pervade this quick snippet that's over before you can begin to nod your head. A real fun track.

Wanted to hear that Goths track, so many thanks for posting that. It is great!

The group was from Gisors, France, by the way.

That Les Thugs track totally is blowing my mind. So Detroit - Stooges / MC5 or whatever
