COOL NEWS!!

LANA LOVE LAND AT GROOVIE RECORDS

LOVELAND - ORDER TO LOVE - LP - TO BE OUT FEBRUARY/MARCH 2011

Up to now we've known her as the FUZZTONES' keyteaser and former BONNIWELL MUSIC MACHINE organist, but LOVELAND's debut single shows her to be a gifted vocalist and songwriter as well as an accomplished musician. The two original tracks, "Black Glove" and "Missing Illusions" (written 1995 by Loveland and guitarist Lenny Svilar) are from her upcoming smash album, "Order To Love"! What do they sound like? Something like a supergroup comprised of various Strawberry Alarm Clock, Music Machine, Doors and Seeds alumni. Lenny Svilar contributing some fine psych guitar and Rudi Protrudi displaying his impressive bass skills, while drummer Alex Tenas is completing the vibes with his superlative West Coast inspired percussive flair. Lana sings and plays soulful, sexy, and sultry! A psychotropic experience!

CRIMSON SHADOWS - GROOVIE RECORDS 2011

GROOVIE WILL REISSUE ALL THE CRIMSON SHADOWS OFFICIAL RECORDINGS. REAL RAW AND SAVAGE MATERIAL FROM A 1986 REHEARSAL WIL BE ALSO RELEASED IN A LP WITH UNSEEN PHOTOS OF THE BAND TAKEN IN THE 80'S.

These guys were the absolute definition of the term "mayhem"!
The Crimson Shadows were among the very few and the very first that took on garage punk not only in Sweden but Europe in general, the first half of a suck ass decade like the 80s.
They had three at least talented song writers (Peter Maniette, Jens Lindberg and Mans P. Mansson), that more or less on 'em the whole rock n' roll scene of Sweden lean on, with later bands like The Wylde Mammoths, The Highspeed V, The Livingstones and continue to these days with the Maharajas, the Maggots and the Strollers!
They were drunks to the bone, savages and terrorists not only in their music but in lifestyle. There are lots of stories about them on how raised hell and gave the creeps in every single band of that scene or every single show!

They were ex-mods which means they had a thing about fashion...They were the best looking band or maybe the coolest gang of punks the last 25 years! Again the stories about how many women attracted and ate, are now legendary!
They left a huge legacy and with a good reason. Some of them written above.
If you're looking for primitive, raw and mindless fun you came to the right place...
This is the 2nd single by them and i chose it for the reason made me buy it lotsa years back. The incredible photo of the back sleeve, with Mans holding a Lyres-like guitar and an old type microphone in front of him...
It doesn't get much cooler that this!

BRAZILIAN NUGGETS - BACK FROM THE JUNGLE!! -LP

VOL 1 - VOL 3 - VOL 2 - LP'S - SOON IN 2011!!!

This project is nothing than a homage for those who fighted for rock n’ roll in Brazil during the 60’s and the mid 70’s. The tracks on this 3 volumes compilations are mostly from very obscure bands, most of them where not even part of the “JOVEM GUARDA” movement. So don’t expect to find here Roberto Carlos, Jerry Adriani or Erasmo Carlos, between other big artists of the time. Here you only gonna find the most wild and raw garage, psych and strange rock n’ roll approach, embedded in FUZZ and screamings that you ever listen to. These records, mostly, have been released in unknown labels, like California Records, RCS, FAMA, LEAO DISC, YOUNG, INSPIRAÇÃO, etc.

The most part of those labels were from outside the big cities. Brazil have always been a big country, most of the states, something like what happen in USA at same time, had their own labels to release local rock bands. The Blobs, Os Nativos, Lup e Loy, Os Espiões, The Rocking Fevers, and many, many others were something like outsiders among “Jovem Guarda” movement. So here we are, giving a chance to people who want to know more about what happened during the 60’s in these incredible country that is Brazil.

The first 3 volumes of these vinyl comps will be released soon, artwork by the well known canadian artist, DARREN MERINUK. So keep your eyes on this and don’t loose this for nothing. The records will bring a lot of texts, never seen photos, among other curiosities.

Brazil is not only good in football and samba… the Fuzz lives there too!!!

OS HAXIXINS - UNDER THE STONES - LP GROO0024LP

They are perhaps the best sound advert fo a non-English speaking
garage psych band living in the very instant of here and now. 14 tracks driven by the schizofrenic Diatron organ of Alex Romera, and powerfull fuzz chords trough the fingers of Mr Fiuza. Twelve original songs, and two covers, inspired on the most obsure music made in the 60’s. This brazilian guys aren’t here to play around, this is serious mindblowing music.” Before redemption we can finally back too obscurity”.
