Super-raw work from The ShadowsOfKnight – maybe the earliest recording ever of the famous garage combo – and a set that already shows them sounding pretty darn great! The material is from a small club on the outskirts of Chicago – and the young quintet is already completely on fire – not just transforming familiar tunes with the gritty approach that would give them their biggest hit a short time later – but also really coming across as a tight, top-shelf act that are wonderfully commanding from the stage – way more than you might expect for a few young guys from the Chicago suburbs! Titles include "Money", "Not Fade Away", "Carol", "Rawhide", "Heart Of Stone", "It's All Right", "Break Time", "You Really Got Me", "All Day & All Of The Night", and "Route 66". CD
Gloria ... LP Dunwich, 1966. Very Good ...
One of the finest rock moments to ever come from the Windy City – a raw, nasty little record that perfectly sums up the Dunwich ethos! Titles include their classic "Gloria" – plus "I Just Want To Make Love To You", "Bad Little Woman", "Hey Joe", "Spoonful", and "Tomorrow's Going To Be Another Day". LP, Vinyl record album
A fantastically dreamy little album from Siouxie & The Banshees – but one that also has a lot more edge than you might expect! These guys are really opening up in the post-punk years – still relatively stark, spare, and unadorned – but able to create all these shadows and channels in their sound – thanks not just to Siouxie's incredible vocals, which have really matured in just a few short years – but also to a complete reworking of fuzzier tones from the psych era, filtered more into a leaner punk-inspired sensibility. Titles include the classic "Arbaian Knights", plus "Voodoo Dolly", "Head Cut", "Sin In My Heart", "Night Shift", "Spellbound", "Into The Light", and "Halloween". CD
