LAST COPIES- ABOUT TO GO OUT OF PRINT FOREVER.
Recorded in Albuquerque, New Mexico and released in 1985 from Voxx (and Lolita in Europe). The band (never seen performing live, as mentioned in "Knights of Fuzz") maybe had the "curse of Voxx" i.e disbanding right after the release of their album, or maybe was an one-off only project.
The album kicks off with "Fly Tonight", a crazed garage track, followed by the 6 minute-long title track, which speeds up and slowes down, complete with an eastern scale solo from the Vox organ of the leader Bob Fountain. The highlight is "She's so wild", another speeding-slowing track, with a superb guitar-organ dialogue. The speedy instrumental "Go-Go 85" closes the a-side. The b-side runs in the same vein with 3-minute songs, delivered straight from 1966, full of teenage fever and naive lyrics, with "Tell me why" and "One Last Kiss" outstanding, and closes with the calmed-down "Bittersweet", up-lifting, almost pop-psych tune that features a nice guitar solo.
This one stands side-by-side with the teenage garage anthems of the Pebbles or the Moxie records, which apparently the band had studied very well, alongside with the ? and the Mysterians.
