The Human Beinz – Nobody But Me

Cool Garage Rock from the Ohio acts debut album from 1967; also titled ‘Nobody But Me’. Rez heads will know this from ‘Meet The Residents’, where the phenomenal Pop combo plundered it for the start of ‘N-ER-GEE (Crisis Blues)’. Dig.

Chrome – Abstract Nympho

It’s sometimes hard to believe how great early Chrome were. Imagine the drive and attitude of The Stooges and Velvets coupled with the fuzzed out mania of bands like Faust, and bingo! This becomes a driving Garage Punk tune until it folds back into the ether it emanated from. This is from 1979’s ‘Half Machine Lip Moves’.

Chrome – Chromosome Damage

Imagine if the Stooges actually sounded like you would have expected them too once you heard about the heavy duty substance ingestion. Well, once you hear 1970’s Chrome, you’ll never have to imagine again. This is from the brilliant ‘Alien Soundtracks’ from 1978.

The Fat White Family – Auto Neutron

The opening track for the band’s 2014 album ‘Champagne Holocaust’ is a lovely slice of ceremonial Rock which leaves you wanting more (the other tracks don’t really follow on from this); despite having a riff that sounds reminiscent of ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’ (by everyone’s favourite shit Scottish music act, Simple Minds). The video was directed by Thomas James.

Warmduscher – Johnny’s Blue Khaki

The opening track from Warmduscher’s 2015 album ‘Khaki Tears’ is a bruised maelstrom of garage rock of the highest order. Excellent stuff from this Brixton outfit.

Butthole Surfers – Cowboy Bob (LIVE 1984-01-03)

The Buttholes were renowned for timing their doses so they were peaking whilst n stage. Looks like they applied the same method when performing on a TV show. Here’s a fiery rendition of a track from their 1984 album ‘Psychic… Powerless… Another Man’s Sac’ delivered in true Surfers style. Oh, and on a side note, the pre-Hip Hop Beastie Boys also performed on this edition of the show.

Hawkwind – Opa-Loka

Hawkwind on the Kraut tip for this motorik chuggathon from their 1975 album ‘Warrior On The Edge Of Time’. More than a hint of NEU!, let’s be honest; yet still replete with the trademark whooshing sounds.

Butthole Surfers – The Revenge Of Anus Presley

Fantastic Black Flag parody from the Texan psychedelic maniacs; which is from the 1983 ‘Butthole Surfers’ EP (also known as ‘Brown Reason to Live’ and ‘Pee Pee the Sailor’).

Warmduscher – Uncle Sleepover (Live @ The Windmill; Brixton 26/01/2017)

Scuzzy Nu psych Garage from London’s wonderful Warmduscher. This whole gig was fantastic, and could penetrate the most jaded soul.

Warmduscher – The Salamander

More than a hint of Butthole Surfers on this scuzzy treat from the bands 2015 album ‘Khaki Tears’. The band are a result of a heated night of lovemaking between Fat White Family and Paranoid London.
