SALT FOR ZOMBIES LP
MISTY LANE/TEEN SOUND 028 (2005)

This is a fine example of how it really should be done, for all the newborn garage heads hit by the “white stroke”. Being one of the sixties garage revival pioneers, I must admit that, with the last couple of albums, I had a feeling that they drifted away a bit from the initial concept themselves, but this is where they’re turning back to their own roots. Two thirds of the album are carefuly chosen covers of garage/psych classics that never were, like the spooky riff-leaden pair of “My brother the man” and “Face of time” or the Shy Guys’ 7-minute freak-out “Black lightning light”, sounding like The Spencer Davis Group gone punk, or the more familiar “Don’t blow your mind” by The Spiders. As for the originals, there’s only five of them, but they’re worth the price of the admission alone. The album’s highlight might be “Johnson in a headlock” with it’s Farfi-sized garage beat fuzz at it’s best, “Get naked” is a moody punk ballad, “This sinister urge” is sure to “light the fire” of any Doors fan, while still maintaining the expected garagey vibes, and the remaining pair of “Hallucination generation” and “Idol chatter” covers the darker corners of the eastern-tinged psych feel. If it happens that none of the above can convince you to het hold of this piece of vinyl, I suppose mentioning a couple of guest appearances by the likes of James Lowe or Sky Saxon, might be of some help.
