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 band's four A's & B's alongside four unreleased, same-calibre tracks from the same period, 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.
