Jimmehs:

now look here!

Ah'rm askin' YOUSE fer info, nort otha waay raand.

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles

Popsike is such a broad term Wallace. Can you give an idea of what you already have or what you think fits into this genre. Some may include Kaleidoscope as popsike, some may think of it as psych.
What about freakbeat, which is of course a more recently coined term. Do you have anything in that area?

Aye Freakbeat - gibbit here.

(But I don't like too much lovey-lovey lyrics. That's fer skirt to list to.)


Ages ago Phil turned me on to Pillbugs which is a real wick group. That's the sound ah'rm aftah.

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles

Ahh so we're talking current bands not 60s?

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles

Yep. Current bands.


Dont like garage. Don't like an American-vibe.


Any recent VA comps that are any good (not just major rehash)?

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles

Okay, seeing as you're not getting too much of a response Wallace I'll chuck a few names at you. Can check them out on you tub or spotify I'm sure. Opinions differ of course. If you want more info on album titles let me know.

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles




I know both Starry Eyed.


Baby Woodrose is a band I particularly despise. Don't like Chemstry Set either.

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles

Fast Camels is good!

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles

Prescriptions - Psychedelicatessen. Best neo-psych pop LP and cheap to get. On UK Target from 1993. Small press, big pleasures.

Both Olivia Tremor Control LPs - get lost in their multi-layered psych pop dream weavery.

Tame Impala - Innerspeaker

Edie: Just seen, last 2 years. Don't know anything recent to tell you about.

Re: Sorry lads: bin outta the scene for a whiles

If you want to go back to the 80's there's the excellent Emergency Third Rail Power Trip by Rain Parade. Did have a couple of other very good ones too but this is my favourite.

You'd swear that Starry Eyed's version of Dylan's-Forever Young was actually The Byrds.
