Fat White Family - Auto Neutron
This band is my favorite discovery of the year. They bring some spontaneity to the landscape where it looked like there might not be much left. This is one of the more tame tracks from their debut lp.
The dream machine makes a big appearance here.
T. Rex — Venus Loon — Bolan was always on some whole other tip. This is years after the mystical folk phase, and years after Electric Warrior. His popularity was waning, but this is great stuff.
Flamin Groovies — Slow Death — Classic SF band. Everyone knows about the Dolls, but the Groovies aer just as raw and catchy.
Tom Waits — Goin’ Out West
I know a lot of people know this song, but when’s the last time you listened to it? eh? Tom Waits holds the test of time like no other
MC5 — Lookin at You. —- Truly amazing performance here. Kramer has to be one of the best hard rock guitar players from the era.
All we really need are some smooth sounding cool rock tunes right? These guys are playing some tasty garage/surf/psych in a way we can all get behind.
Gil Scott Heron & Brian Jackson— Possum Slim
This is smooth music. From the ‘76 album, Its Your World.
This might be the most overtly psyched out video I’ve seen in the last ever.
It’s important to remember that the philippino midget james bond is a thing.
