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 ) cla ssic, 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:

If you like The Sonics, The Fuzztones, The Cynics and all that 80s Garage-Rock style....you should definitely check out The Krypters!

«The Krypters are a classic five piece garage/punk rock band with great early 80's punk energy and a charismatic front man leading the way. » — El Rio reviews.


Aloha Screwdriver delivers a high-octane mix of surf and twang. The Alameda, CA-based instrumental group formed in 2009 by three friends (possibly from another dimension) who have been playing music together since they were 15 years old.

In 2011, Aloha Screwdriver released their first CD, titled No Way Out. Recored to tape entirely on vintage gear, the 8-song EP has a uniquely saturated, old school sound that sonically sits right alongside '60s recordings of Dick Dale, but calls itself out with its punk-tempo pacing and rock-inspired drumming.
