SRC - Self Titled
1968 - Detroit USA
I remember years ago meeting american artist/musician Mike Kelley (Destroy All Monsters) and talking music with the guy for awhile. The only band he seemed to think where worthwhile from the early Detroit rock scene which he grew up around was the "SRC." I remember being shocked that I had never heard of this band though not too shock when I found how hard it was to find their S/T album. Skip a few years later and I finally found a reasonably priced reissue Lp and man was I floored.
Amazing Hammond/Bass/Drum melodies with scorching fuzz guitar leads that make me think guitarist Michael Karoli of Can was into this record. The SRC really had their own sound on their first record, I can't really compare it to anything of the time. Unfortunately I found the couple of later albums they produced quite boring but that may be due to the fact that the band had kicked out Gary Quackenbush who did all the lead guitar work on the album.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ! !
