THE HIGHSPEED V- DEMENTED R&B LP

GROO043LP

Although they existed for only a year, the Highspeed V made enough of a mark on Stockholm’s pioneering neo-garage scene for their name and music to live on several decades later. Along with the Livingstones and the Wylde Mammoths the Highspeed V were a local ‘second wave’ outfit, forming in the Spring 1986 as a combination of experienced players and newcomers to the garage punk circuit.

Bass-player/vocalist Jens Lindberg and harmonica cat Henrik Orrje both came from the notorious Crimson Shadows, a first-wave group whose story and recordings can be found on a recent Groovie Records sampler. ‘Crimson’ (as they were known locally) folded in March ’86 after two outstanding 45s and a series of alcohol-fuelled concerts, the last of which ended with a band member getting beaten up by the police.

To us young fans, Crimson’s falling apart seemed a serious blow to the whole scene, but we were happy to soon learn otherwise. During the preceding year the Stockholm underground had spawned numerous young moptops who lived by Pebbles anthems and Back From The Grave 3-chord grunge, and who patterned their look on Sunset Strip ’66 rather than the familiar British mod style. In such a thriving milieu the split-up of the great Crimson Shadows became a mere bump in the road, as new bands and new horizons emerged.

This LP brings all the HIGHSPEED V recordings along with some unreleased demos. A insert with rare photos, full story of Stockolm neo-garage scene and family tree by
Patrick Lundborg, Author of The Acid Archives and Psychedelia books.

SERGUEI - PSICODELICO 1966-1975 LP
GROO042LP

Sérgio Augusto Bustamante was a flight attendant. He flew by the Southern Cross, Panair and Varig. In the sky, above the clouds, he used to daydream about Elvis. One day, he came down from the heights and he added a "u" to the Russian name Sergei, which he took out from a friend. He put on his boots and with them he embarked in an exciting trail of Rock’n’ Roll. Like a dreamer, he let emerge in all its fullness the figure of a rebellious, argumentative, naive and, above all, authentic character. His true self, Serguei.

With his colorful clothes, long hair, red contact lenses, and in his hands, the hippies’ flag of peace & love, the anti-commercial Serguei, through several decades, carried on his back the weight of a public image much bigger than the work he was able to produce. Marginalized by option, Serguei tried psychedelia, tropicalism, and even Brazilian folk music without, however, settling down in any musical style.

Between 1966 and 1975, which correspond to his musically bolder period of time, his work materialized erratically through records released sporadically, which succumbed in the presence of the singer’s strong image. Archetype of Keith Richards rocker’s style but without the drugs (for many!), Serguei was just a caricature, whose work was just a prop. "I've never been recognized, few people give me value," he told to the magazine Pop in April 1978.

Despite his short adventure with singer Janis Joplin (in the summer of 1970 in Rio) has always been the most prominent reason in articles about him, were the records he released between the years 60 and 70 that attracted the attention of collectors and of people who have special appreciation for rock produced at that time .. Serguei self titled “psychedelic” long before everyone. He sang his hallucinations, found someone from alpha centaur and went in search of peace, from sunrise to sunset.

THE SKEPTICS - BLACK, LONELY & BLUE - LP - LIMITED EDITION
GROO041LP

Chances are, if you picked this record, you know what you're headin' for. If you don't, let me tell you this; you'd better gear up for an unhealthy dose of raw garage punk. But what makes this band all so different from any other garage punk outfit out there, I hear you say? Well, maybe it's the fact that the band doesn't fuck around with superfluous crap and certainly manages to keep it simple & efficient. That could be explained by the fact that what is now a full-blown band (well, a three-piece to be exact), started as a one-man project in a dirty garage somewhere (OK I actually don't know WHERE it started but I assume it's a garage). So maybe Bart (Vox & guitar) was limited by his ability to play all the instruments back then and it showed in his compositions, but most likely, he just knows how to write a good garage song! But don't think that the Skeptics went all fancy 'cuz Bart got himself a real band (that's Kristal on bass & vocals and Xavier on drums). The songs sound as vicious as ever and the formula stays the same, thick fuzz, skin bashing, gnarly vocals & straightforward riffs. And yet, we're led to believe that those garage-heads dig stuff other than their 60s punk comps if we're to listen to their fuzz-driven rendition of Chrissy Zebby Tembo's Troubemaker. And I gotta say, that's another point for the Skeptics, cause who seriously wants to hear another cover of Wildman? Anyway, I'm not gonna go into much more details about the sound of the Skeptics cuz if you're reading this, the record can't be that far and you should just give it a spin instead of wasting your time with my rambling.

QUARTETO NOVA ERA - APOLO/VIAGEM NO TEMPO/DE REPENTE
O TEMPO NÃO ESPERA
GROORS103EP

Exclusive repress on Groovie Records, with the suport of the founder band member Chico Aguiar.

This is the extreme psychedelic band from Brasil. Or at least the best Garage Psych EP released, in the 60's, in Brasil. Its our opinion, maybe yours to. And when you first listen to this MONSTER you gonna aprove what we are saying here. Originaly released in 1969 its was rapidly tooked to obscurity by the public or the corporative music of the time. The content of this records is far away haead of he's time. Working in the fields of psychedelia and fuzz guitars can be compared only to Os Mutantes in greatness and quality. Or even in creativity. The band fronted by Chico Aguiar also was the band that suported Serguei "burro Cor De Rosa" and "Ouriço" tunes. The release can be aquired with a monster poster made by artist João Maio Pinto, that is a master in to put that psycdelic energy on he's art. Two colour poster with every release 50cm X 35 cm. Buys it, listen to it and blow up you mind in to outter space.

  THE SOUND REASONS - TILL THE END OF TIME/IF I CARE/I WALK WITH MY SHADOW - GROO010EP

It defied reason. Forming a band in order to raise from the dead a short, obscure musical period of lawlessness between 1965-67, in a day and age of predictable, artificial and uninspired "music".

Coming from the 4 corners of LA County, The Sound Reasons got it together. Locals began seeing where it was at, because, every performance they saw, the boys brought the thunder and lightning down in the form of a hip shaking, pounding, jangly, fuzz drenched soundscape.To the Sound Reasons, music is THE THING with no artificial ingredients, and real SOUL. With the Sound Reasons, Rock and Roll, really,
is alive and well. For this band, the only thing that counts is getting it tight, out of sight and nailing the elusive SOUND.

This debut release is sure to turn your party, cookout, or freakout ON because these guys have the stuff. The stuff that defies Reason!

  THE FUTURE PRIMITIVES
INTO THE PRIMITIVE
GROO039LP

Cape Town didn’t know what hit it when The Future Primitives formed in late 2011. From the first strum, this feral three-piece attacked in true garage style with an unmistakable rockabilly attitude mixed with an array of psychedelic leanings drowned in surf-drenched guitar. The Future Primitives alter between old and new, blending and blurring the lines between the two, bending the sound into a shape of its own.

South Africa has a small but rich history in garage music (The A-cads, The Gonks, Powerage, The Makeovers etc.) and a fantastic art scene, while being famous for exports such as Distict 9 (the film) and Die Antwoord (hip hop crew)... From today, the wind will blow in another direction... three misfits from Cape Town are hitting up straight from their dark rehearsal room into the clubs where all the cool kids go to change the face of South Africa’s music forever…Feedback Orgies. Fuzz Guitar. Direct in Your Face Stomping. Stupid Primitive Drum Beats and Desperate Futureless Screams. This is The Future Primitives. Their name hints at a contradiction that can be heard in their sound as the recordings are stripped of all technological advances, using analogue gear and minimal microphone setups to record live to tape. To them, it’s more about capturing a feeling.

THE ROUTES - INSTRUMENTALS - INCLUDES A DIGITAL CARD FOR DOWNLOAD
GROO038LP

That is one of those bands I would love to release myself on VOODOO RHYTHM RECORDS, just to make that clear... I met CHRIS JACK back in Japan when I was touring with my band, THE MONSTERS. The gig in general was amazing and wild. We had naked men and almost naked girls at the show... and a rock’n’roll scene that I dream to have in Switzelrand, with lots of girl's bands.
I was super impressed, then Chris told me he had a band. He gave me his recordings and I heard that like 20 times a day... It was something like 10 years after I met The Sonics. FUCKING KILLER. Anyway, time went by and we kept contact all these years... Now THE ROUTES released an album on the fantastic GROOVIE RECORDS, from Portugal. A full INSTRUMENTAL album, a super fox on bass and a animal on drums, with the new Jeff Beck on guitars.
That is RAW WILD and OUT OF CONTROL guitar instrumentals with sometimes an EXOTIC touch as in "Bossa Hossa Nova", in "Shove-it" or in the beautiful "Yeti Spaghetti" and SURF instrumentals like "Luck Of The Devil" or the SMASHER "Hang Eleven".
This album is a super INSTRO KILLER! If you like The Shadows only, it may not be your cup of tea... but if you live in the gutter and drink booze instead of water, this album will be the HOLY GRAIL FOR ALL YOU SURF PUNKS OUT THERE!

REVEREND BEAT-MAN (Master Of Desaster)
