Here's a typically eighties' styled stretchhhhhhhhhhhhhed 12" version of an early Gaye Bykers' track.
Alex Fergusson's arrangement and production is somehow reminiscent of a Foetus-styled recording - big beats, samples, touretteic-like vocals accompanied by a bombastic faux orchestral back track - yeah, Foetus-like.
But this recording is probably of more interest for its original B Side.
Two live tracks, very well recorded, capturing some full-on early nuggets from the tripped out arty musos.
The spirit of Dr. Feelgood hovers heavy, as does echoes of The Seeds, The Sonics and all manner of psyche, pub-rock, garage type influence.
Of course it didn't last long; their sound was driven by the zeitgeist; electonica and glow sticks lured them into new territory; but this recording only goes to prove that the Gaye Bykers could play some mighty fine boogie.
I wonder if Albert Hofmann, had he heard this, would have wished he'd been a watchmaker?
You know, like that other Albert-dude...
