Vibrasonic – Kingsley J

January 26, 2007

Watch this video and keep in mind that this single was NOT released in the middle of swinging 1967. Vibrasonic, and their jaw-dropping Kingsley J from the mid nineties, recreate the wonderful wacked out sound of Syd era Floyd without sounding… well… shit. This is a brilliant record that every single person in the world should own.

Blind Faith play The Stones Under my Thumb

January 23, 2007

Steve Winwood, Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and  Ric Grech made up sixties super group Blind Faith. The group debuted at a free concert at London’s Hyde Park on June 7, 1969 which ultimately led to a disasterous debut in the United States. The group made their debut at Madison Square Garden on July 12th for more than 20,000 and during the performance a 30-minute-long riot occurred on stage involving police and concert goers. It led to Baker accidentally getting clubbed on the head by a police officer and Winwood’s piano being destroyed. Sadly, this footage is from their debut and not the incident packed Madison Square Garden performance.

The Seeds sing Mr Farmer

January 18, 2007

The Seeds and Sky Saxon are incredibly undervalued by the world. One glimpse of recognition was the use of Mr Farmer on the Almost Famous soundtrack, so watch the video below and see what the fuss is all about.

Iggy and the Stooges rip up TV Eye and 1970

January 17, 2007

No words can adequately convey a performance by The Stooges at the peak of their powers. Suffice to say, this poor TV link up man cuts to a break due to the chaos, watches Iggy vanish into the crowd and smear himself with peanut butter. This is a lesson in real rock’n’roll kids.

Stephen Stills & Manassas – Song of Love

January 11, 2007

Stephen Stills, of the mighty Buffalo Springfield, and of course, the ‘S’ in CSN, created one of the most underrated LPs of all-time with the marvellous Manassass. Check out this cracking version of ‘Song of Love’ then go and buy the damn thing.

Beach Boys sing Wouldn’t it be Nice in 1971

January 4, 2007

The Beach Boys, when in full flight, are a tough act to match. This video, shot in 1971 when the group were sporting an incredible array of beards, is of the masterful Wouldn’t It Be Nice from the incredible Pet Sounds LP. Videos like this make you long for a real and proper reunion of the group… so Mike Love and Brian Wilson… sort it out.

Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry: Studio Wizard

January 2, 2007

PopJunkie has suffered from a complete absence of reggae over 2006 which is something that should be rectified immidiately. So with that, let’s look at the production of the Raggae master, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry working up a storm with the Heptones.
