SAMEHADA SHIRIKO & DYNAMITE are from Fukuoka, Japan and have played together since 2013 now, ever since released three albums and played countless explosive live-shows. The group around dynamic and beautiful singer and guitarist Shiriko, mad lead guitarist Abbey, stylish bassist Wetton and classy drummer Massiveeffect have an intense stage presence combining retro- and modern style in a fun and crazy way. Their third album “Newretrock” is just that – powerful retro-rock which
is refreshingly new at the same time.
The LP was previously released as CD (Sazanami Records) and contains 12 songs, including a coverversion of a band-favourite, “Dangerous Saturday” (originally by Japanese girl-group The Candies from the 70s) among 11 originals. It is covered in a pretty artwork, somewhat influenced by classy 60s and psychedelia. Be enchanted by the “Enchanting Newretro World”, rock and boogie along to “Old House Boogie”, shout along with “That Girl’s Shout” and finally get overwhelmed by “Samehada Typhoon”.
Samehada Shiriko & Dynamite have a highly unique, very Japanese, slightly crazy sound one can hardly compare with others, yet it is somewhere in between nostalgic Japanese Group-sounds, 80’s-“Mentai-Rock” and Girl-Garage-Punk with a few 70’s- and hardrock-influences here and there – certainly one of a kind!

ROMAN AND THE ROSARYS – Going Home With… LP (SFR-110)
Wade In The Water (There's A) Ghost Inside The
Confusion, Trouble Chains Of Time
Back For More Gypsy Woman
Come Back No More Going Home Baby
Baby Don't You Weep Baby I'm Coming Home
15 Days, 15 Nights I'm Going Home
ROMAN AND THE ROSARYS channel the trance like monotony, the drama and the female worship of the Rosary prayer into 12 minor key dance numbers.
“Going home with Roman and the Rosarys“ was recorded by Jim Diamond at Living Room Sounds and features Roman Aul (REDONDO BEAT) on Vocals and Guitar, Maximilian Schneider (REDONDO BEAT) on Drums and Thomas Bruchhäuser (THE SATELLITERS) on Bass.
On their debut album they hijack early 60s Memphis and Detroit RnB numbers and twist them, in alignment with Roman Aul’s originals, into little 2 and a half minute soap operas that plea for salvation on this journey to paradise.
If it’s their captivating approach to classics such as “Wade In The Water” or “Baby Don’t You Weep” (original by FRED BRIDGES), or breathtaking one-of-a-kind tunes like “Confusion, Trouble and Despair” or “Chains Of Time” that sound both exciting and elaborate, almost like a brilliant version of NICK WATERHOUSE that meets JAMES HUNTER SIX. You’ll have no choice but to fall in love with this album from the start!

THE ELECTRIC MESS – The Electric Mess V LP/CD
Too Far Speed Of Light
Bad Man Laserbrain
Last Call Before The World Bloes Up
Cesspool Strange Words
City Sun After The Money's Gone
New York City’s THE ELECTRIC MESS returns with a bang on their fifth album, „The Electric Mess V“.
Formed in 2007, the band is fueled by 60s garage, 70s punk and hard rock, psychedelia, and New Wave. They have toured throughout Europe and the States, putting on tight and electrifying live shows. Led by the chameleon-like front-woman, Esther Crow (vocals, rhythm guitar, percussion), with Oweinama Biu (keyboards, vocals), Dan Crow (guitar), Derek Davidson (bass), and Alan J. Camlet (drums, vocals), THE ELECTRIC MESS has taken their songwriting to the next level on this record, taking the listener on a melodious trip over the course of its 10 tracks, with all of their influences on display. It was recorded and mixed at Hoboken Recorders by Alan J. Camlet, and mastered by Jim
Side one opens with „Too Far,“ a fine slice of West Coast folk/psych, with layered guitars and soaring vocal harmonies, and the tough Brit-Invasion type R&B of „Bad Man,“ followed by the dark psych pop
of „Last Call,“ with its haunting choruses and break. The band adds synthesizer to the mix this time out, prominently featured on the New Wave garage punk rocker „Cesspool,“ and on „City Sun,“ the dystopian proto-punk ripper that closes side one. Side two opens with „Speed of Light,“ a space metal/punk barn burner that Hawkwind might have been proud to call their own, and the slow jam „Laserbrain,“ with acid fried guitars and swirling organs. „Before the World Blows Up“ is darker surf punk that asks a serious question for today, while „Strange Words“ is the angry love child of The Stooges and Blue Oyster Cult. The album closer, „After the Money’s Gone,“ is mellower psych-rock that darkens with time and repeat-listens and an apocalyptic outro.
„From harmony-laden hard folk to psych-pop, the ingredients of their sound lead to tracks like the Nederbeat soundalike „Last Call“ and then switch back to the punkier Johnny Thunders vibe of „Cesspool“. The band is certainly no one trick pony… If heavy psych/rock is your thang, check it out.“ (Shindig!)
„With three excellent songwriters, fierce playing, and urgent vocals, The Electric Mess are contemporary and forward looking, yet planted firmly in the great tradition of Nuggets styled garage rock.“ (Sal Maida, bassist, Sparks, Roxy Music, Cracker)
HIGH OCTANE BOYS – The Change I Need 7″
The Change I Need Down On Boring Street
HIGH OCTANE BOYS are currently the top 60´s garage rock band in Norway. The group, consisting of veterans from the Norwegian surf/garage scene, started off playing a rawer kind of instrumental rock that gradually turned into a wild mix of fuzz and farfisa with fantastic vocals.
When looking at their brand-new 45 “The Change I Need”, covered in a stylish 60s-styeartwork displaying their current line-up in outlines, it immediately becomes obvious what their music is all about and where the boys draw their inspiration from – namely all these fantastic 60s Garagepunk-pioneers such as THE MUSIC MACHINE, but also organ-driven fuzzy garage-revival-bands from the 80s till now.
“The Change I Need” will absolutely take you away – what a mighty sound with a heavy fuzzguitar, wild farfisa, a strong beat and vocals! This is downright fantastic songwriting reminding one of the likes of THE SATELLITERS.
But don’t be scared, the B-side “Down On Boring Street” does not at all take you to musical Boring Street, but it does just the opposite! It is a catchy Garage-dancer with a fine beat that you’ll find yourself playing repeatedly.
“The Change I Need” by HIGH OCTANE BOYS – a highly exciting must-have 7” for any lover of garagepunk-music!
THE SMOGGERS – Lo Que Daría Yo 7″
Lo Que Daría Yo Recuerdes Para Mí

The 7” is a fantastic extra to perfectly complement the album musically. You get two fine Spanish garagepunk-tunes with a heavy dose of fuzz-guitar, screaming vocals, a crazy organ and a lot of wildness!
“Lo Que Daría Yo” is a highly addictive, honest garagepunk-song that has a lot of 80’s Garage-revival to it. And the flipside of the 45 is even wilder, starting off with a captivating fuzz-sound, which is followed by a catchy melody spiced up with hammond organ, a punkrock-harmonica and screaming vocals.

THE MINNESOTA VOODOO MEN – Voodoo Stomp 7″
Voodoo Stomp Ikimochi
THE MINNESOTA VOODOO MEN formed in 1998 in Tachikawa near Fussa, the capital of garage rock/group sound in Japan. They have since not only developed a unique and absolutely fantastic lofi-garage-surf-beat-sound but also built their infamous reputation as mindblowing live-act while touring throughout Japan as well as all over Europe displaying crazy yet stylish Japanese “Merseybeatle” Ringo, wild drummer Pete and frantic guitarist Fabian playing his guitar virtuosically while hanging upside-down from the ceiling.
After their several first releases on Japanese labels and their LPs (“s/t” and “Shake Your Mind”) and lastly their 45 (“Don’t Come Around”) on Soundflat Records, this brand new 7” “Voodoo Stomp” is their first release since 2012 and it was definitely worth the wait! The title-song “Voodoo Stomp” is an extremely catchy, cool 60’s-beat-tune while the B-side is a live-recording of “Iikimochi”, a slightly calmer ballad. Both songs have Japanese lyrics and of course they have that raw Voodoomen-sound that we all love, containing Ringo’s rough
voice, a wild guitar and a stomping beat.
Finally here it is: a new piece of hit-vinyl by our favourite Japanese Garage/Beat/Surf’n’Rolltrio!!

THEE CHA CHA CHAS are a One-woman/One-man garagepunk-band from Melbourne, Australia that originally formed as a joke for a backyard battle of the bands in 2015… but the joke never stopped and we’re extremely glad it didn’t! This power-duo plays raw Garagebubblegum-punk with 60s roots and a high dose of wit, so they are an absolute blast to watch live! They already toured Australia and Europe and after their brilliant first single “Here Comes That Feeling” (ZENITH RECORDS) and their split-single with the BREADMAKERS
(FOLC RECORDS) the fiery two-piece now releases their next piece of vinyl on SOUNDFLAT RECORDS.
The EP includes 4 original tunes by the couple that one just has to fall in love with! The titlesong “Runnin‘ Out Of Time” is a fast, very catchy tune that is followed by a RAMONESque guitar on the second song “Stop Trying”.

Serfs Up! Sing Along With Creighton
GHOUL A GO-GO is an American TV-show based on the American tradition of the Horror Host of the 1950s and 60s á la Vampira and Zacherle. The show itself started in 2000 and ever since has not only
become a cult TV-show including a lot of musical gems (such as star appearances by HASIL ADKINS or The 5678’s), but the show also does many live-shows, hosting horror conventions, burlesque-shows and lots more.
This 7” features two brilliant songs recorded by VLAD AND THE IMPALERS – Mister Vlad Tsepis being one of the spooky hosts of the show and The Impalers, who might look and sound suspiciously
familiar when you compare them to our favourite German 60s-Garage-heroes THE SATELLITERS. You will dig the surfy sounds of the ghost guitars on the A-side “Serfs up” with spooky hammond organ,
ghoulish sounds and creepy laughs by Mister Vlad Tsepis himself!

This single is an absolute must-have for anyone, who likes chilling 60s-horror-films and -shows, all fans of the GHOUL A GO-GO and of course anyone who likes some good 60s-dance-tunes!
