Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-10-16
Australian label featuring a smorgasbord of international garage bands. Most of this has a retro surf, early 60’s, 50’s feel more than the balls out rawkin garage of the Estrus 90’s era. But searing fuzzy twangy guitars abound. Great stuff, includes some familiar faces from recent afile (e.g. King Salami). Pick any (FCC on #3). Play with stuff on the Dirty Water or Slovenly labels, stuff like Cramps, Holly Goightly, Headcoats, Nuggets Comps.

1) (2:36) Somebody put a hex on me, scary surfy spooky, perfect for halloween 2) (3:22) Gravedigger – female vocals 12 bar blues rock 3) FCC – “shitty” play in safe harbor (3:07) 12 bar swamp total Cramps, sexed up to the max “take it off!” 4)* (2:53) “I don’t want to work”, 12 bar feel, slow sexy swagger sway, Stooges in the “come on!” 5) (3:55) heres the farfisa and girl surf garage you ordered, sassy, killer 6) (2:36) King Salami, song about Yosemite “Same”, 50’s jump blues with sax, what youre accustomed to, high energy dance music 7) (2:00) Two to Match - shoo bop surf, sassy vocs kinda gender bend 8) (2:48) Please Yo’ Self - harmonica and slower swing gives this a rootsy bluesy tone 9)* (3:25) Unconditional Love – rockin drivin more of a Stooges Grand Funk upbeat rockin 10) (3:22) Got Nothing On - 12 bar boogie, vocal harmonies 11) (2:44) New Direction – Stepping Stone type feel and beat 12)* (2:11) Snake Save Skin – strange slow simple plod begins, then a big heavy bouncy beat with brit vocs 13)** (2:26) Do the Crawl – sexy girl rock, vocs are sultry and killer 14) (2:54) rockin hard, killer, “I don’t want to go to Sydney” 15) (2:32) farfisa organ gives it a 60’s psych rockin feel, rockin yeah 16) (2:30) 50’s flavored sorta spooky surfy
