The One In The Middle
|Ragnar of Ravensfjord|
Just like the title says, mid-60’s garage rock from Sacto. Plenty o’ fuzz, twang and farfisa organ at play here. Some “should been hits” and a few misses. Generally good stuff that helps you understand the nationwide (or really worldwide) garage rock pheonomeon aka: the post-Beatles/pre-psych era. |
(((((1)))))) Up tempo & waaay fuzzed out riff and “I’m so down” lyrics. Pretty funny breakdown, too.
((((2)))) Twangy, farfisa, a decent amount of bass & harmonica. Very Eric Burdon vocals.
((((3)))) Standard, swingin’ tempo with a killer fuzz/organ tone. Pre-punk attitude for sure.
(((4))) More swingin’ tempo with a strong British influence ‘ala Donovan & The Yardbirds.
((((5)))) Bluesy guitars and slow twang from the 2nd guitar. Kinda similar to the Troggs.
(((6))) Too lo-fi but some nice drumming and too reliant on the Beatles/Easybeats type harmonies.
((7)) Super twangy, reverby, mess of hippy haze
(((8))) “Proper” lo-fi, twang & rave-up. Though a little flat overall.
(((((9))))) Groovy, fuzzy & wild raw soul & rock combo. Awesome!
(((10))) Raw, early rock n’ roll infused garage action.
(((11))) Mellow, strummy, introspective and kind of folk-rock. Pretty decent.
((((12)))) Fast (for 1966 anyway), with lots of “doot-doot-doot” guitar. Like pop-punk before the fact.
((13)) Rough & raw version of Yardbirds & early Stones, really TOO raw. Everything’s so loud it’s distorted almost beyond recognition.
(((14))) Nice bits of harmonica, guitar and pretty decent soulful vox. Although too many loose parts.
(((15))) Super lo-fi, mid-paced twang & tamborine. heavy percussion. Like the Who in a $5 studio.
((16)) Boring, farty, hippie folk-rock.
((17)) Sloppy, shouty, swaggery like a discount version of Them or The Animals.
((((18)))) Snappy beat, nice guitar sound and totally poppy vocals. (Not the best sound but it works).
((19)) Simple early r n’r formula but it was probably big at somebody’s malt shop in ’66.
((((20)))) Galloppy guitars, dirty vocals & overall sound. Raw and right from the gut. Spot on!
(21) Huh? Mommas & The Popas type of elevator pop. Kack!
(((22))) The usual overblown vocals & organ sound. Not bad. Their “hey, little schoolgirl” theme should go.
((((23)))) Twangy, swingin’ early rock vibe with a nice sound sorta like Buddy Holly brought up to Mid-60’s speed.
((24)) Chorus-laden, dreary kinda Beach Boys/kinda Beatleish melancholic pop. Nothing special.
(((25))) Fun & simple, silly 60’s dance band take on Little Richard tunes. Custom made for a movie on “Mystery Science Theater 3000”.
(((26))) Pretty good cover of the American rock classic tune.
((27)) Badly recorded, kinda fuzzy, white blues-rock-garage tune all ‘bout alimony. Yawn.
((28)) Cruddy Brit invasion wannabe junk.
(((29))) Twangy very, uptempo & vocal harmony depend Brit/Beach Boys sounding but not too bad for what it is.
(((30)) Slow, organ & really loud vocal version of the Yardbirds classic. Decent but sounds mostly like someone’s square dad trying too hard to be “cool”.
