The Day After The Sabbath 22

Download: [mf] or [mg]
Volume 22 is an eclectic mix from all over the board, three slabs of 60s heavy psych from Peacepipe, Waters and Mass Temper mix in with the krautrock of Kravetz and Electric Sandwitch. Luv Machine are likely the only Barbados band you'll see on this blog. The heavy prog of Omega remains Hangary's biggest rock export so far and Suck represent South Africa's shot at Sabbath heaviness. Cool Feet have two joined tracks here, the album from which is a rare pressing that combines an intriguing mix of hard rock with NWOBHM hints. Another classic cover appears on track 13 from a UK alt/sludge band, who employ fuzz of evil magnitude to cover Cream's standard, Sunshine Of Your Love.

01. Luv Machine - Witches Wand (1971)
02. Peacepipe - The Sun Won't Shine Forever (1968)
03. Piel De Pueblo - Jugando A Las Palabras (1974)
04. Elonkorjuu - Future (1972)
05. Suck - The Whip (1971)
06. Waters - Mother Samwell (1969)
07. Electric Sandwich - China (single version) (1973)
08. Hallelujah - Mini Funk (1971)
09. Cool Feet - Hello Lucy / Burning Desire (1976)
10. Omega - You Don't Know (1974)
11. Mass Temper - Gravedigger (1968)
12. Affinity - Three Sisters (1970)
13. Fudge Tunnel - Sunshine Of Your Love (Cream cover) (1991)
14. Kravetz - Routes (1972)

Cheers, Rich

The Day After The Sabbath 21: Uluru Rock (Australia)

[Also see Vol80 for a new Aussie comp] TDATS number 21 "Uluru Rock" features Australian bands, and one from New Zealand slipped in too. Due to the size and remoteness of the Austalasian scene, and the remoteness between the cities of Australia themselves, It was hard for bands to network and find support to progress. Many of these tracks are from singles. Lots of the bands, like Chook, never had the opportunities to produce a full album. I have used their track in a previous comp, but thought it should be put in here as it's a perfect candidate for the theme and also I have managed to find a far better quality version. Fanny Adams appears again with a new track, showing their appealing take on driving simple hard blues riffs that hook into you like Free do.

Rabbit feature none other than the original singer of AC/DC; Dave Evans, and another band that only produced a single, 'The Ash', have two songs joined here as I think they are equally great, being some of the heaviest sabbath-styled stuff I have found from Oz at the time. NZ's Ticket offer an uplifting psych anthem to individuality and Coloured Balls (a name that surely shows the Aussies' bawdy humour) start with a meaty riff and ends the comp on a contemplative note, as does the moody final track from Master's Apprentices.

01. Flake - Breadalbane (1974)
02. Buffalo - 'Til My Death (1973)
03. Bakery - No Dying In The Dark (1971)
04. Long Grass - Anywhere You Wanna Go (1967)
05. Rabbit - Dinosaur - (1975)
06. Southern Cross - What I Am Waiting For (1976)
07. Chook - Cold Feet (1971)
08. Fanny Adams - Ain't No Loving Left (1971)
09. The Ash - Warrant / Midnight Witch (1971)
10. Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs - No More War (1973)
11. Ticket - Awake (1972)
12. Coloured Balls - Human Being (1973)
13. Master's Apprentices - Games We Play Part 2 (1971)

Thanks for listening!

The Day After The Sabbath 20

Volume 20 begins with Granmax's driving tenacity and goes on to the masterfully wah'd up heavy blues of track 2. Blossom Toes have a stand out track here, don't let their name fool you, this is a seriously heavy psych trip with some unbelievably aggressive vocals. There is an interview with Blossom Toes guitarist Brian Godding here at Psychedelic Baby webzine. Brain Police come back with some more gloriously heavy psych and track 9 jazz's up the procedings before Dirk Steffens (Ex of Birth Control) supplies some razor sharp hard rock riffing. Some more 60s groove comes our way courtesy of Brainbox before this installment ends with another cover, the bands involved needing no further introduction here...

01. Granmax - Glitter Boots Boogie - 1976
02. Chicken Shack - Poor Boy - 1972
03. Días De Blues - No Podrán Conmigo - 1972
