If you happen to find yourself in London - check out the Hidden Door Club (Based in Camden at the Elixir Bar). Loads of 60s underground/garage/psyche/beat goodness. First friday of the month - be there or be everso slightly cuboid!
Probably my fave album by Luxembourg's best garage surf band. Lots of cover versions (inc. a Pixie's number - Cecilia Ann) and some self-penned numbers (a re-working of an older track - Desperado On The Beach). All in all good stuff!

I was sent an album by a reader and am posting it for everyone. The Band/artists name is Swilson and the albums called 'Demonology' and I enjoyed it very much - it's got a bit of everything, some garagey bits, some whacked out psychedelic bits and some acoustic songs (even spotted a Hammond organ at one point). It's very lo-fi (which is a good thing!) and on the whole sounded like a love-child of Daniel Johnston and The Bevis Frond (again, a very good thing!). Swilson mentioned that he is saving his hard-earned to get the album pressed, so if you like the mp3s, then keep an eye out and get the vinyl.
Don't know a lot about Rodriguez - dunno whether it's one bloke or a band (anyone know anything then let me know please!). I had a couple of tracks on a homemade comp and then picked up this CD last year sometime and ..IT ROCKS!!! Full of crunching garage rock'n'roll - it lived in my car CD player for weeks!!!
