Urusei Yatsura formed in Glasgow in 1993 after bonding over a love for Velvet Underground and Galaxie 500 among others. This is the debut LP of the band. They released three more Lps before split up. "We are Urusei Yatsura" is a great LP of classic Scottish lo-fi noisy guitar sound and pop sensibility. Check them out:
Back in the dirty rock n roll sound again after a few days off. Here are the UK kings of the garage, the lords of the dirt, the incredible Masonics with their third and maybe their best LP so far. Simply awesome!!! Enjoy...!
"The Thanes have been one of Europe's top Beat acts since the mid 80's. Their fabulous 1997 album (originally released only on LP) is finally available again on CD, along with 6 killer tracks taken from the same recording sessions, and later released onto various singles in the past years (on the Corduroy, Larsen and Do The Dog labels). Not only this a garage-beat and folk-punk sound masterpiece, but the new mastering adds even more energy to the tracks for your listening pleasure. New artwork too..so don't miss this release since it's a limited edition! "Having cut one stirring song after another, it's fair to say that everything the Scottish band has recorded is worth seeking out. Formed of cocky vocals, raspy fuzztone guitar riggings, and swarms of needling melodies, 'Thrown Away the Key' and 'The Winner' evoke the authoritative aggressiveness of bands like The Standells and The Underdogs. Dizzy keyboard figures guide the gig on 'What's It All For,' giving the tune a swinging beat that's simply irresistible. The disc also boasts covers of The Caretakers of Deception's 'X + Y = 13' and The Guess Who's 'It's My Pride' both channeled with comparable style and taste. Soaring harmonies pinned against jangly, six-string licks further make for some mighty good listening. Alive with heart, soul and honesty, this just may be the best 60's garage rock album not recorded in the 60's!" -
