Les Grys-Grys (France) — Whoa! Is there any other word to effectively describe this assault on the ears? It’s the sound of suburban frustration taken out on unsuspecting punters at the local dancehall circa ’65, but served up on black was today for everyone to marvel at.

The debut single from The Stones-aping quintet from Montpellier, France is « Only » a pair of covers but that just adds to the R&B authenticity, doesn’t it? The Masters Apprentices get done over on the A-Side, with everything turned up into the red. The unintelligible slurring vocal is the only thing stopping in from being world-beating. Meanwhile their other cover, of the Jimmy Hughes ( via The Spectres ) classic, is brazen: they speed things up, completely alter the lyrics just for fun, and basically spin it into Back From The Grave – worthy garage – punk gold. A provocative and unhinged beginning. Based on this evidence, our world is theirs for the taking.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...Grys-Grys are comically shit hot...everyone that's seen them live knows that...but let's go to Boston for confirmation:

«They are monsters!!» JJ Rassler — DMZ

Also featuring…

The Ogres — The East Bay's favorite cavemen, featuring members of The Phantom Surfers and The Barbary Coasters

The Control Freaks — SF punk feat. Greg Ripoff from The Ripoffs & Zodiac Killers

THE SELLWOODS (Portland) — 60's punk/hot rod/slop rock from Oregon!
