Imagine if you will...
It's a Saturday night in May, 1967. You're at The Bayou Club, way down at the end of Wisconsin Avenue in Washington, DC with your date. You've had a few drinks - beers are 50 cents - and you're hoping that a) the band will be good and b) you'll get laid later. The group hits the stage and you are shocked silly. They're not just good, they are great! They rip through a set list that includes '96 Tears," `I Want Candy,' `Louie, Louie,' and `Kicks;' to name but a few. You dance and drink and dance and drink and have the best time.
After the encore - there's gotta be one because this is rock 'n' roll - you wonder, "Who are these people?"
Well, what if - in a turn of events that could only happen in some alternate universe allowing time travel and, hopefully, success with item b on your to-do list - the band includes some authentic rock `n' rollers from your own era; namely Phil May and Dick Taylor of The Pretty Things and Matthew...
It doesnt get much better than this! Phil May and Dick Taylor from The Pretty Things along with members of The Inmates pay tribute to the great garage rock hits of the 60s. Yardbird Jim McCarty guests on 'I'm A Man' If you dig 'garage rock' then you need to buy this one. My personal favorite on the album is 96 Tears. Nice one, lads!
Here's one Pretty Things CD release that until recently I wasn't aware of. Assuming, this December, 1992 gig was a one-time performance - Pretty Things guitarist Dick Taylor and vocalist Phil May had joined up with member(s) of The Inmates and Procol Harum to play this notable live set of - mostly covers. Tunes that I couldn't get enough of were the Seeds classic "Pushing Too Hard", "Candy" (many of us initially know of this song when it was covered by Bow Wow Wow in the early '80's), ? And The Mysterians "96 Tears", the Standell's "Sometimes Good Guys Don't Wear White", Bo Diddley's timeless foot-stomper "I'm A Man" and the only Pretty Things tune that shows up on 'Rockin' The Garage' - the ass-kicking "Midnight To 6 Man '93". Definitely, a must-have.
