SHUTDOWN 66 - "COME ON GIRL GIMME HALFA CHANCE" LP
Melbourne garagepunk legends get the reissue treatment for this long sold out and extremely limited (100 copies only!) 2003 LP. For fans of Nuggets and Brave From The Grave style dirty 60's garage punk noise! Notable for being one of the first recordings by Eddy Current Suppression Ring's Mikey Young and featuring one of the first songs he wrote in the style, this is a piece of Melbourne rnr history.
SOUND FLAT RECORDS:
Melbourne's legendary neo-garagepunkers SHUTDOWN 66 are back again! Featuring members of THE BREADMAKERS, HEKAWIS, THE PURITANS and DRIVEWAY SERVICE these boys have created their own unique and mindblowing sound, strongly influenced by 60's garagepunk and British R&B, that has a worldwide fanbase. Between 1998 and 2004 they released four smashing albums and several singles and split-singles on CORDUROY RECORDINGS - all of which sold out long ago; while GET HIP RECORDINGS reissued their debut album 'Welcome To Dumpsville' the other albums are hard to come by. Now SOUNDFLAT RECORDS wants to make sure that their fourth album 'Come On Girl Gimme Half A Chance' (originally limited to only 100 copies) is available again, seeing that it is our mission to keep providing you with the best of today's garagepunk and this album definitely is among the essential must-haves.
You get that premium stomping garagepunk with a strong R&B-infusion flaunting dirty fuzz-guitars, the right amount of farfisa-organ and harmonica, and of course singer Nicky Shutdown's cool, screaming voice!
While the catchy 'You're Killing Me Down' and 'In This Town' remind one of 80's-garagepunkers THE MIRACLE WORKERS and snotty songs like 'I Dig The Way You Put Me Down' and 'I Saw Something Good (I Had To Make It Bad)' go more in the raw, punky direction best compared to bands like THE GRUESOMES and with 'I Don't Wanna Cry' and 'The Saddest Girl In The World' they also added moody garage-rock-songs.
An absolutely stunning garagepunk-album, indispensable to any good record collection!
