MISSING LINKS
(LP)
[ERA : 60s / Garage ]

DELUXE reissue of 1965 Aussie garage RARITY in 180 gram vinyl LP with bonus 7" EP/ Though they have different approaches, a common thread runs through Australian bands like the Saints, Hoodoo Gurus, Midnight Oil and AC/DC : an aggressive, take-no-prisoners posture designed to grab audiences by the throat. And it's been there from the beginning. For proof, check the wild, outrageous sounds of the Missing Links. Formed in Sydney in 1964, a series of personnel changes eventually replaced all original members, leaving vocalist Andy Anderson, guitarist Doug Ford, drummer Baden Hutchens, bassist Ian Thomas and Chris Gray on keyboards. It was this lineup that recorded the band's 1965 debut album, The Missing Links. An instant garage punk classic, The Missing Links took the UK R&B combo model and drenched it in attitude and feedback, making contemporaries like the Troggs and the Who appear tame by comparison. The sonic guitar meltdown at the end of You're Driving Me Insane presages Jimmy Page's Zeppelin lift-off by a full three years while Wild About You defies description, except to say it still sounds shocking nearly 50 years on. This slice of vigorous vinyl became one of the most prized acquisitions for garage punk fans the world over, with each successive wave of Down Under musical malcontents spreading its legend. Sundazed has now restored the album in all its magnificent MONO glory! What more could you want? Well, how about the IMPOSSIBLY rare EP, The Links Unchained, featuring four more cuts of mid-Sixties madness? For a limited time, Sundazed is offering both of these audacious aural artifacts in one convenient package!

LP TRACKS : Wild About You * Hobo Man * Bald-Headed Woman * Not to Bother Me * Mama Keep Your Big Mouth * Some Kinda Fun * You're Drivin' Me Insane * Nervous Breakdown * Speak No Evil * On The Road Again * All I Want * H'Tuom Tuhs * 7" EP TRACKS : I'll Go Crazy * Don't Give Me No Friction * One More Time * Wooly Bully
