Album Review
Your Imaginary Friend
Reviewed 2017-10-16
Slovenly records release in 7” form archival recording by mid 60’s garage love-psyche band made up of high school friends. Really an historical artifact in some sense, digging up a very obscure recordings. In Slovenly’s words: “Sites n' Sounds were students at Kennard-Dale High School when they recorded this absolutely genius single at Courier Recordings studio in Fremont, MD, releasing it on Ohio's CEI Records label in 1967. We dug up this 45 towards the end of 2016, listened to it about 100 times in a row that evening, and began researching the band the next day, which resulted in locating organ player Mike McFadden in our own backyard. He provided insanely cool band photos - two of which are reprinted in full color for the 7inch insert. When we alerted Crypt Records honcho Tim Warren to the discovery, he declared it an "unknown MONSTER mooder!" and applied his loving and astute mastering touch for re-release. We couldn't be more proud to present this haunting teenbeat single to the world 50 years later.” As if I couldn’t love Slovenly Records more…

1) (2:16) quintessential mid 60’s proto psychedelic rock 2) (1:32) sounds kinda like a low fi “you really got me” but its 12 bar, so genuine, so authentic, wow
