"There is so much groovy music here..." WHERE TO START???

I recommend to
start with the HLFP-Samplers (especially HLFP 04).
Here you will come to know many of the bands/musicians featured in this blog. If you like what you hear, you may check out more of their music later on.
(You may also click on the picture on the sidebar and you will find the original post with download links.)

There is also a "FOCUS ON..." section. Here you will find albums that in my opinion are absolutely great (***** = "five-stars-recordings") and that are essential listening and strongly recommended for download.

Please don't send me any more music submissions

and emails until further announcement!

I TRY to RE-UP some stuff that has been down from time to

time, but I still don't have enough time to

listen to/post much new stuff.


IMPRESSUM: see here!

The Mackerel Heads - I Was A Teenage Mackerel Head (UK 2007)

Here is another one of DEMIS COUSCOUS' records for your enjoyment.

"A pseudo phoney folk band. Largely an Opportunity for us all to get very drunk on whiskey and do BOB DYLAN or CAPTAIN BEEFHEART impressions. It all started with a few Open mic nights as a three piece which proved popular enough for us to be continually offered gigs and increase in size to a seven piece.
THE MACKEREL HEADS album consists of home recordings made between 2006 and 2007 which were then revisited as a band once things started rolling. Largely the performances on the album are played by DEMIS COUSCOUS and DIVAD BRYAN..."

This is a bit of fun - some of the tracks have a real "Basement Tapes" kinda feel.
