SYNDICATE - THE EGYPTIAN THING
The story of the Syndicate runs along similar lines to countless other rock'n'roll bands in the mid-sixties. They got together to have fun, made some noise on the local teen scene, recorded a couple of singles, made a vain grasp for the brass ring, then vanished into thin air-all within the space of two magical years: 1965 and 1966. What makes the Syndicate special, though, is those two hard-to-find singles. 'My Baby's Barefoot' and 'The Egyptian Thing', both released in 1965 are two of the most savage, hot-wired blasts of Punk R&B mayhem ever etched into wax, while the flipside of 'The Egyptian Thing', 'She Haunts You' showed the group were equally adept at moody, minor-key material. The 'Egyptian Thing' album presents the bands four A and B-sides alongside four unreleased, same-calibre tracks, kinda KINKS-inspired, from '65-'66, and an earlier 45 by the Ris-Kays, featuring Syndicate front man Bill Rash. An in-depth insert written by Ugly Things' Mike Stax with a cache of photos compiles the legacy of a band, whose 45s are among the top wanted items in their genre, making this release the ultimate Syndicate collection and an unforgettable garage punk adventure.

SKEPTICS (BELGIUM) - BLACK, LONELY & BLUE
Chances are, if you picked this record, you know what you're headin' for. If you don't, let me tell you this; you'd better gear up for an unhealthy dose of raw garage punk. But what makes this band all so different from any other garage punk outfit out there, I hear you say? Well, maybe it's the fact that the band doesn't fuck around with superfluous crap and certainly manages to keep it simple and efficient. That could be explained by the fact that what is now a full-blown band (well, a three-piece to be exact), started as a one-man project in a dirty garage somewhere (OK I actually don't know WHERE it started but I assume it's a garage). So maybe Bart (Vox & guitar) was limited by his ability to play all the instruments back then and it showed in his compositions, but most likely, he just knows how to write a good garage song! But don't think that the Skeptics went all fancy 'cuz Bart got himself a real band (that's Kristal on bass & vocals and Xavier on drums). The songs sound as vicious as ever and the formula stays the same, thick fuzz, skin bashing, gnarly vocals and straightforward riffs. And yet, we're led to believe that those garage-heads dig stuff other than their '60s punk comps if we're to listen to their fuzz-driven rendition of Chrissy Zebby Tembo's 'Troublemaker'. And I gotta say, that's another point for the Skeptics, cause who seriously wants to hear another cover of Wildman? Anyway, I'm not gonna go into much more details about the sound of the Skeptics cuz if you're reading this, the record can't be that far and you should just give it a spin instead of wasting your time with my rambling.

MOBSMEN - SCELERATS SYNDICATE
Finally! After a tremendous live success and an enormous popular demand from all surfing teens in Scandinavia and elsewhere in the world you are holding the first release by the mighty Mobsmen in your hands. Whether you are surfing the waves in California or the fjords of Norway, this is the real thing! One of the most exciting new groups to hit the modern music scene, and the young dancing crowd really digs their exciting sound. Inspired by classic instrumental surf bands like Original Surfaris, Fender IV, The Pyramids, Eddie & The Showmen, and their own hits like Cicero Comet, Chunkje, and Tandelborstel The Mobsmen are now ready to conquer the world with their reverb drenched surfing sound! The band members identities have been hard to establish, but rumours say there are members from distinguished beat and surf combos. You can't be 100% sure though, since they always perform undercover.
ONES! - VOLUME ONE
As a follow up to the CD release, Gearfab now proudly presents this obscure album on beautiful 180-gram vinyl and with a thick board LP-jacket, an exact replica of the original 1966 Ashwood sleeve. Although these guys originated from Connecticut, they became one of the hottest opening acts in Boston in 1967, playing many of that city's best and most popular venues. Their versions of these cover tunes are better than the originals!!

STAR SPANGLED BANANA - PEBBLES 2000
Whoa! Daddy-o! Here's some 100% hi-octane grooviness!!! It's the long awaited debut album from these pioneers of the happening sound soon to be known to the masses as BUBBLEGRUNGE! Dirty amps tweaked to a happenin' rhythm and floorshaking beat, eviscerating the soul of your tired and over-referenced 'Nuggets'-comps and bustin' you loose with some wild grunt and grind! The songs may be familiar, but you will be too furiously wigging out to even care who or what wrote them in the first place! It's an ever-lovin' tribute to the bubblegum greats of yore! The Beatles! The Monkees! Paul Revere! Tommy James! Flipper! And more! LP on banana-yellow vinyl, including free CD.
WAILERS (USA) - AT THE CASTLE (IT)
In a region rife with garage bands, The Wailers were the first and, arguably, the best, and the Tacoma, WA group's 1962 album, 'At The Castle', is their finest moment. Nearly 40 minutes of shredding rock and soul that inspired groups across the Pacific Northwest and beyond, from The Sonics to The Kingsmen to The Raiders. An absolute ripper of a garage album that still sounds fresh some 50+ years later, reissued on LP by Mr. Suit. Side 1: 1. Wailers House Party 2. Dirty Robber 3. San-Ho-Zay 4. Rosalie 5. Since You Been Gone 6. Shivers 7. Sac O Woe 8. Mary Ann Side 2: 1. Talk Cool One 2. You've Had Your Chance 3. Limbo Twist 4. All I Could Do Was Cry 5. I Idolize You 6. Zig Zag 7. Soul-Long 8.
