The Day After The Sabbath 17: Evil Woman

Download from  [mf] or [mg]
pass:  tdats

This special volume features music with female vocals, making for a varied collection that was a lot of fun to compile. Track 1 'Pieces of Me' features Linda Hoyle, the singer from the Vertigo-signed Affinity. Track 2 is from The Runaways, where Joan Jett's career started and track 3 is a nice slab of stonery groove from Australia's Mcphee. Room's 'War' reminds me favourably in form and theme of 'War Pigs'. Arktis are  regarded as part of the Kraut Rock movement while Aguaturbia, Brainticket and Fifty Foot Hose all offer up some excellent heavy psych, track 11 is a Dutch pop/rock band who are noted for their single hit, the much-covered 'Venus'. The Savage Rose finish up with the atmospheric doomy 'A Trial In Our Native Town'.

  1. Great idea! I figured you'd have Carmen Maki on here, that track from the first DATS is awesome.

    The Aguaturbia vocalist is pretty cool too, as I remember.

    Does the band McPhee have anything to do with Tony McPhee of Groundhogs?

  2. Hey man. You may also have noticed that the track here by Fantasy is the same song that Carmen Maki did on TDATS1, don't know who did it first.

    'The Wrong Time' is a great track, one of my faves here. They are not connected with Tony Mcphee though:

  3. I should start listening to some I've ignored it for too long.

    Interesting about "Understand." I found it odd that a 70's artist (don't remember the name, it's on the LSD comps) covered Bloodrock's "Timepiece," unless that song wasn't originally by Bloodrock. I know that Stray Dog song on your DATS is a Bloodrock cover.

    Obscure artists covering obscure artists...

  4. I love this series you are doing. Great work ! I noticed though that track 9 will not play when I download this Vol 17
