Isn´t so frequent that I post up tribute or covers´s albums , but is it uncommon for me to get one filled with so much great garage rock. Castle Face really has cobbled together a fantastic line-up of musicians for tribute an album which has and will forever have for me a special appeal, I´m talking about The Velvet Underground and NIco
Can add that I’m a huge classical 60´s bands fan and that this is one of my most played albums with my garage obsession to highly recommend anyone who listens to wearethelastbeatniks music to give this album a run.
All eleven tracks are finely done lo-fi psych garage that should appeal to any fans of White Fence, Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees or Burnt Ones . To my shame not all here were known to me. In either case now I have more musicians to sight and I’m happier for knowing of them
