PARTHIAN SHOTS: SWIRLING SIGHT

7/27/2019
More
It appears that The Turns only released one single, I'm not even sure if they're still going. They have a rich West Coast psychedelic sound, like Moby Grape meets The Rain Parade. I finally got around to buying some Mystic Braves material a few weeks ago and I've already played this 2015 album several times. It's a psychedelic delight from start to finish, there's not one number here that I want to skip. Most of the songs are long player material and drift well over the desired three minutes...

PARTHIAN SHOTS: WORLD'S END

7/26/2019
More
The Jack Cades is a superb 45, top side "Run Paulie Run" is especially strong with a riff Ray Davies would have been proud of. Back in 1964/65 this would have been a hit but times have changed and it's now up to the devoted sleuths to get thee message out. Hastings based garage band The Dirty Contacts released this single late last year on the ever popular State Records label. Both numbers were recorded live to 8-track at North Down Sound. It's a noisy affair with fuzz, not a disc to play...

PARTHIAN SHOTS: TIME WILL TELL

Both sides of this 45 were written by Mike Warren, who was a Higher State member for a couple of years. I assumed the numbers were written by Marty Ratcliffe!!! I've used the psychedelic "Trip On High" on mix #23 but check out the promo video of "Automatic Motion" cos it's way-out. Plenty to dig on this record. Released 2008. Graham Day & the Forefathers update The Prisoners number "Love Me Lies" released on State Records back in 2014. "Once Over Twice" is on Mix #23 and what a 'heavy'...

PARTHIAN SHOTS: FOOL FOR TEMPTATION

7/25/2019
More
In years to come this fabulous album by The Higher State may receive some plaudits as being ahead of it's tyme in a weird kind of way. The early line-up, may have even been the original line-up. Recorded between June 2007 and January 2008. Beautiful sounds and the thick card sleeve and heavy vinyl had not been seen since the late sixties. 12 string guitars, harmonies and excellent drumming throughout. Keen purist production too nailing the sound. It may have been darker by the day but it's...

Broken Moons and kaleidoscopic paths featuring: Asteroid No.4, Balduin, The Fuzztones, Marty Ratcliffe, The Social End Products, Cavemen V, The Omens and The Youth. Asteroid No.4 are on a trip to another part of the galaxy with this single from 2017. "Broken Moon" is a dreamy lament, similar to The Rain Parade material from the mid eighties. The top side "Ticking Time Bomb" is a little more heavier with treated vocals, sound FX and added dreaminess. Marty Ratcliffe went solo with this single...

PARTHIAN SHOTS: LONG BLACK ROAD

I've used two numbers from The Cavemanish Boys album. They were a short-lived combo with Gerry Mohr, a former member of The Miracle Workers. “Come On Baby” is a cover version of Al’s Untouchables 1966 legendary garage single. The Frantic V are another Greek garage band following in the footsteps of The Sound Explosion with a sound based on fuzz and farfisa. Two numbers from this 2004 LP made it onto Mix #17. Check out opener “Room 409” As far as I know this was the debut single by The...
