D: The Animals performing ‘It’ s My Life’, on US TV in 1965. The set is ahh-mazing! The “the ex-girlfriends” heads mounted and moving to the music in the hunting lodge environment. No regrets.
D: i post mixes made regularly onto my mixcloud, via this link…
Lulu’s Marble- I Feel Alright, a cover of The Stooges, off their album ‘Love Rock’ (1994)
D: The Stooges, ‘I Feel Alright’, also known as ‘1970’, is off of their Fun House release in 1970. This is my favourite cover I’ve heard; other notable mentions include The Damned’s version off of their 1977 debut, Damed, Damned, Damned.
Lulu’s Marble (ルルーズ·マーブル) are:
Akko—vocal & guitar (Sadly, Akko died in February 1999)
Toshie—bass & background vocal
Oka—organ & background vocal
“Four young Japanese women kicking out some classics in a ruthless garage mode. This powerful, rockin’ band’s signature is the background screaming (nearly every song). I swear, it doesn’t get better, or wilder, or crazier than this! Technically, they could be better, which only proves how totally unnecessary that would be. The whole band’s great, and there’s a definite SONICS influence in the way they pound these songs out like they own them all!”
The Black Lips - Dance With You (2012)
D: So Little Time Edition of Lady Squalor, featuring some favourite Girl Group, Garage, and otherwise tunes that hold a narrative for me. You can listen live every second Wednesday, for two whole hours as yesterday, from 6pm to 8pm (UK time) on Subcity.org.
D: Formed by Don Grashley and Lloyd Palmer,The Gaiety Records label was active in Canada between 1961 and 1969. This label out of Winnipeg, Manitoba was an outlet for many Canadian garage and rock bands in the years that ran, such as, The Checkerlads, White Knights, Tomorrow’s Keepsake, Plague, Lexington Avenue, NRG, and Solid Reputation. “Gaiety Records released its own bands’ singles as well as licensed material to other labels as RCA, Columbia, Decca, Epic, Musicor, and many others. The Gaiety Records label featured many obscure but good bands that had become lost in the shuffle in the quest for that elusive hit single.” I would really like a copy of the compilation LP released in 2000 by Pacemaker records. Tracks like this one will be played on my new radio show ‘Lady Squalor’, that I will be hosting on Subcity Radio every second Wednesday from 7:00pm-8:00pm, as of next week (April 4th, 2012). After the first week, I will be inviting various friends along to have conversations through music; each week will have a theme, allowing me to cross the genres and years with logic. Stay tuned for more details. Subcity.org
