Comment:

Just a bunch o' stuff rockin' my boat at the mo. 3,5 & 7 c/o Valis (indebted as ever amigo) Public Nuisance are one of my fave discoveries this year (even if that track is almost 40 years old!)Anyone else checked out The Dragons album B.F.I. ? Psych meets dance but again damn near 40 years old hard to believe it sounds so new!

I echo Terrys comments almost exactly. And I LOVE Animal Collectives latest also. Fine Mix Cliff.

like what I've heard of Blue Cheer, Animal Collective... but that's about it. would love to give this a listen, as Public Nuisance and The Dragons both sound cool, and I'm pretty sure anything called The Chocolate Watch Band is right up there too.

Ok, people like you make me sigh the longest sigh; I don't know 99% of those bands but I wish I did.

gotta admit i dunno much here but the idea of psych meets dance 40 years ago intrigues me - any chance of a download?

Looks like some great stuff all around, although "Let's Talk About Girls" and "Da Da Was Here" top my personal list.

What's familiar looks great - lots of wonderful, garage-y stuff. Makes me very curious about the rest...

Aye Kathrynand Rupert,"Jenny climbing up the flagpole, Jenny looking out a porthole." The bloody tune won't leave me alone must have found myself breaking into song about 30 times to day alone!!!

Gotta love that circus-disco sound that AC seems to aim for. Really like the Circulatory-Coral coupling. Mmm.
