VA: Tangerine Bubble Beat


as promised before, here i am back with some new fresh music. again, this is a compilation i put together as an mp3-cd for my car, so its basically just all the stuff i happen to listen to a lot at the moment, thrown together (although i tried to sort the tracks in a way that makes sense according to genres) – so again you have to expect very few famous hits and loads of obscure rare stuff. about the first 60 to 70 tracks are pure nitty-gritty garage rock, then it gets a little more psychedelic. tracks 105 to 121 are old, vintage rock n roll and even older rhythm n blues, followed by another bunch of sweet psychedelia. the whole collection finishes off with some more heavy stuff, so it really covers a lot of moods.

the first of some highlights id like to mention is track 32, “somebodys gonna get their head kicked in tonite”, a late-60s rocker by some obscure group called earl vince and the valiants – which is a pseudonym for nobody else but peter greens fleetwood mac! yeah, this is just the way we like them – despite that heres absolutely no blues in it, just straightforward, badass rock n roll – kick it!
track 87 is an awesome favourite of mine. last summer the german/french tv channel arte put on the 17 episodes of “the prisoner”, a 60s secret agent tv series starring patrick mcgoohan. the soundtrack was provided by ron grainer, after edwin astley (“the saint”) had declined. here we have single version of this fantastic instrumental, brimming over with coolness – perfect for the coolest of all cool irish secret-agent-actors!
last but not least theres track 160, and this shows my love for trash again. the german crooner couple cindy & bert made a cover of sabbaths paranoid in 1971 called “the hound of baskerville” (“der hund von baskerville”). very much off their usual style (as normally such artists are simply a no-go), it sure has some freaky trash-appeal. just try it out and let me know what you think (i you didnt know it yet) :-)

as you may have noticed the blog url has finally changed from twenty-flight-rock.blogspot.com to twenty-flight-rock.co.uk. this is because i decided to move the blog from google blogger to wordpress, because it many rich features that give back the control to the blog owner. the “old” links though are still valid, youll even be redirected to the right post and not just to the main page. anyhow, im still testing and experimenting with layouts and styles, so dont worry if the site still may look weird from time to time or some functions may not be available – im working on it :-)
