Potato Chip: Crunchy Dunwich Garage: Seagrass Blue Double Vinyl LPLPBEAT176C
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Label: Beat Rocket
Release Date: 15th July
Few things give us an instant kick like a good garage rock nuggets'esque comp and this is the swiftest boot up the pants we've had all year with 36(!) absolute belters. This selection brings together some of the crunchiest and immediate grove nuggets from Chicago's Dunwich Records. Pop this on of an eve and we challenge you not to be moving... at least a foot tap or a wee air drum-a-long.
For those who dig: Nuggets (ha), primitive garage rock beats and fuzz guitars, grown out mop haired rock n roll and rnb.
Thundering thumpers from the Dunwich Records catalog, featuring the Shadows Of Knight, The Luv’d Ones, Things To Come, The Banshees, and absolutely no crumbs!
Chicago was home to one of the most vibrant American rock ‘n’ roll scenes of the mid-sixties and the most prolific outlet for Chicago’s rockin’ teen sound between 1966-67 was Dunwich Records. From its very first commercial release, “Gloria” by the Shadows of Knight, to classics by the Del-Vetts, the Banshees, Saturday’s Children and Knaves (to name just a few), the label was, in retrospect, arguably the most consistent garage rock production house of its era.
The label, with its cryptically named subsidiaries like Yuggoth Music, outrageously hip art department, and amazing roster of garage bands, was formed by three jazz buffs: Eddie Higgins, George Badonsky and Bill Traut.
