The Troggs With a Girl Like You

Unmistakable 60s garage-pop music that rings true almost 50s years after its release. Juan Wauters came, saw and conquered the Old Blue Last, bringing that same loveable edge that made The Troggs such a fine outfit. Reg Presley's carefree vocals, pokey and sweet but creaking too, are what makes the songs so easy to love.

 
Genghar Powder
 
First came 'Powder', then the announcement of the Transgressive 10th Anniversary: New Sounds show this October. This wonderful debut single from the four-piece, writhing with energy and spooky vocals, lingers long after it's finished. John Victor's bristly, charged guitars, arrive perfectly balanced with the softness of the "powder"-like voices. 
 
 
Los Apson Fue en un Cafe
 
Los Apson were one of the original bands that snatched Rock n' Roll from the USA, and took it across the border into Mexico in the 1960s.

Brian Eno Always Returning
 
A.G. Cook's tactful new ambient rework of How To Dress Well has been a delight all this week. It got me thinking back to the original ambient cruiser, Brian Eno, and 'Always Returning'.

Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Romeo, done.
 
 
The Minutemen #1 Hit Song
 
Famy let loose 'We Fam Econo' this week, we took heed and dived into some of The Minutemen's countless 2-minute wonders. '#1 Hit Song' schools Pavement and Parquet Courts on how really not to care, apathetic 101. Punk wit and nonchalance spiralling riffs that twang and ramble to whatever dis-satisfaction they so desire. "Blah, blah, blah.....", Fher-GeHt-About-It......
