“REPTILE MAN”-The Dog That Bit People

Crisp bursts of brilliant sound snaking its way up through a swamp of jungle toms and overloaded prog
synth vocals that would make Gene and Dean Ween weep .

“Reptile Man” spits and screams at you with all the patience and spatial awareness of a psych-rock
number, while maintaining the groove of a brooding antihero’s theme song. It’s Rick Wakeman’s blues.
It’s Brian Eno’s funk. It’s Tony and Ozzy’s little brother.

Whereas “My Love” has more of a lounge, bordering on Roy Ayers feel, this tune is straight out of
the 60’s psych-pop era, and considering it was written and performed by the same group, it couldn’t
possibly be more different if it tried. True to the myriad jangly elements that define many of that
era’s offerings, its rhythm section is a burlap sack of tambourines, hi-hats and loose change shaken
furiously in time, as the bass bounces and works its way through the forest of monotone vocal hooks
and enthusiastic group harmonies. All of this colliding with a guitar that’s as fuzzy as it is frenetic, results
in a tastily layered combo of an under 3 minute pop tune that’s enough to make Britpop consider a
relocation to Lima, and proof that this group is anything but the English translation of its name.

“MY LOVE”-Laghonia

This 60’s Peruvian psychedelic lounge rock group is as reminiscent of German songstress Nico as they
are of The Beatles. A melancholy mix of forlorn lyrics, rich, full bass lines, longingly aching organ
pads and unresolved chords makes this one of those “turn-down-the-lights-and-slow-dance-in-your –
living-room” kind of tunes. It’s guaranteed to make your heart break in all the right ways. Just make
sure that you have the one you love there with you to help pick up the pieces.

A predecessor to alt country, complete with a band name homage to a Gram Parsons tune, how could
this late 1960’s outfit from Indiana that so embodied the “San Francisco sound “go under the radar for
so long?

On “Father Come With Me”, a waltzy beat is accentuated methodically by a slow-dance, 50’s style
rhythm guitar that wouldn’t be out of place next to “Earth Angel” if not for the subtle darkness of a layer
of minor chords and swirling organ, which brings it back into balance with the times, and closer in that
sense to The Animals version of “House of The Rising Sun”.

This record is one of the rarest finds out there, so if you come across it, snatch it up. It’ll be the best
decision you made all year.
