Dear Garage Music Explorers,

Find a Tardis nearby,
Enter as invited by the Doctor,
Select appropriate time zone, say 1966,
Enter the time-warp and
there you are, in Fuzzland.
Pop in in a café with a real good stereo and order a fuzzy drink.
Now then, you are ready for some organ-driven, fuzz-drenched psych-o-delic sounds, as the 5-piece band from Berlin - DE described their style.
Mix horror fiction fuzz punk'n'roll inspired by B-movies from the 5ts & 6ts + garage Legends like The Fuzztones, The Blue Magoos,The Haunted (of course) or The Sonics.
Very nice taste. Waiter, bring me another one please !
Sofort, mein Herr.
On the X-Ray Harpoons' gravestone, one passing by around midnight (CET) could read :
C-Ray Harpoon on drums / Schlagzeug
B-Ray Harpoon on guitar
J-Ray Harpoon on bass
M-Ray Harpoon on organ
P-Ray Harpoon : Sänger

The X-Ray Harpoons released a 7" - EP on 23.04.10 ; you can find it in all good e-shops.
Art cover is by Kiryk Drewinski, art designer & Garage rocker from The Magnificent Brotherhood.
Discover Fuzztones'cover of Charlotte's Remains, previews of their great 7" - EP, like Zombie Love or Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! (which each ranked #2 in my charts in weeks 1 & 5 !) + live extracts on their MySp to get a glance of their music and live performance, as you might not have been one of the lucky guys @ The Stargate Club in Berlin yesterday evening.

The X-Ray Harpoons' label is CopaseDisque.
I missed their Tour de France last September, a shame isn't it.

The Hentchmen

Added 3/2/2011

THE HETCHMEN,DWC1046,Detroit garage,dirty water records,

Dear Rock'n'Rollers,

this garage trio has been on the rocky roads of Detroit for a while, as their latest release simply titled The Hentchmen, is their 8th !
The band is composed of :

Mike Latulippe on drums,
Tim Purrier on guitar
John Szymanski on Farfisa organ

The 1rst title Messed Up My Brains catches your ears straight away, some few early seconds sounding like some revisited Led Zeppelin's beats from Misty Moutain Hop.
That's very nice to recall, but only lasts a snap, as their influences also come from 6ts rock, post-punk of the late 7ts & 8ts, sometimes singing in the same way  as Adam Ant on Dirk Wears White Sox in 79, with riffs from the Stooges, eg like on Iron Pimp.
Claude's Remains is one of my favourites, but wait till you have listened to Wild Wild Lover (more repetitive & heavy as of from the 9ts) or Aladdin's Castle, also a hit.

If you believe a garage-rock album's primary function is to rock, then The Hentchmen have managed to make one of that roll kind.
I Love it, an enjoyable discovery you will be listening to for a long while.
I have just bought my copy @ Dirty Water Records' shop (along with other nuggets I will hopefully soon be able to write notes about once I have had time to listen to them).

Discover & Enjoy !

@+/bis bald/see you/un saludo (listening to Accusatory, track n°9 from
The Hentchmen
's S/T LP).
