Sonido Joanic

Band:LOS RETROVISORES
Album:Sonido Joanic
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:cd
Genre:Garage Punk

Already for ten years now the Catalan band has been a guarantor for tastefully staged and fiery performed music
with the spirit of the 60s – they elegantly combine beat‐pop, soul, garage freak‐pop and Yéyé and thereby create
extremely catchy and infectious songs.
After their debut album „Nostalgia Ya No Es Lo Que Era“ (2010) and their equally successful and sold‐out Single‐
EP’s „Alma Y Pisoton“ (2013) and „En El Surco“ (2014) „the rear‐vision windows“ are finally returning with„Sonido
Joanic“ and present ten new songs, that more than underpin their status. Almost exclusively sung in Spanish, songs
like „Mentiras“, „El Trovador“, „Pan De Ayer“ or „No Quiero Regresar“ stick out with a striking wind section, soulappeal,
upbeat beat‐pop‐flair and quirky garage‐finish. Wether it is outstanding own compositions or classics like
„Calamity Jane“ (THE RAVEN) or BOB & EARL's „Harlem Shuffle“, made popular through THE ROLLING STONES, the
boys master it all.
„Sonido Joanic“ is as much a perfect party‐record as it is a record suitable just for listening. Topped off with a
perfect retro‐artwork the Spaniards delivered a true genre‐highlight!

Greatest Hits Vol 1

Band:JON AND THE VONS
Album:Greatest Hits Vol 1
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Garage Punk

Here comes garagepunk at its very best! JON AND THE VONS play their 1966‐garage‐sound wild, loud and straight
to the point. Whoever saw this incredible band live or heard one of their two amazing singles yet, knows exactly
what we're talking about: JON AND THE VONS have once again revived that raw, fuzzy lo‐fi‐60s‐sound that many
others have tried to reproduce before and give us their debut‐album that is indeed named “Gratest Hits Vol.1” for
a reason!
The record includes one hit after the next and aside from mainly coverversions of 60s‐garage‐classics like “Stop and
Listen”, “My Brother The Man”, “Caught You Red Handed” and more, it also has selfcomposed songs like “Won't Be
No Next Time” or “I Gotta Know” that fit in perfectly with the rest of the songs and will catch you all the same. The
band (featuring members of The Rip Offs, Four Slicks, Les Dragueurs, Les Terribles, Les Arondes, Les Braqueurs etc.)
definitely knows how to make you go wild! You get a heavy fuzz‐guitar‐sound, catchy melodies supported by farfisa
organ, screaming vocals and a wild beat.
The amazing coverartwork of the record is made by the legendary Japanese scene‐artist Jelly Bean, so the album
doesn't only sound great, it also looks it!
Don't wait to get this top‐shelf album on your turntables ‐ it won't be easy to remove again!

Montreal, Quebec. The year is 1958.. or 1967.. or 2016. LES SEPARATWISTS will take you on a journey through time
with their exotic, seducing mix of instrumental 50s/60s Surf, R'n'B and Twist!
The debutalbum of this Canadian quartet is called “Bar Walking” for a reason – you'll feel like you're put back to
the late 50s/early 60s, partying in a cool bar with Gogo‐Girls dancing around you to those Tittyshakers.
Alongside their originals such as “Ruby's Mood” or “Melonball Twist” their covers of Mancini's famous motion
picture soundracks of “The Party” and “Pink Panther” or the classics “Sleep Walk” with its Hawaiian touch and
“Istanbul Twist” with its oriental mood will seduce you all the same.

and fresh way that won't be ignored!
“All Day And Night” is an all self‐written album, giving you an authentic, wild sound that is simply addictive!
The boys get you hooked right away with the first song “All Day & Night”, its wild guitar and cool, energetic vocals
and make sure you're gonna have a “Good Time” twisting and shouting to their crazy hits such as “Squeeze me”.
The Owls will give you fever not least with their absolutely catchy song “Fever”, that has that fantastic Modattitude
to it, “Mystery Man” (which was also released as 45 as a foretaste of the LP) that blows your mind with its
wild 60s garage‐beat, or finally “Doctor” that adds a screechy hammond organ to a dark and wild Garagepunk‐song
that just sounds incredibly cool.
You find melodic harmonies, a cool bass, swinging guitar riffs, a great deal of early sixties Merseybeat influence
with a rough and fun Rock'n'roll approach and wild 60s Garage‐rock galore.

Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Garage Punk

Here comes one true hit‐record! THE FADEAWAYS from Tokyo, Japan have a huge amount of energy that they put
across on this record perfectly. Aside from 7”releases and split‐singles the boys are well known for their fantastic
live‐shows in Japan or recently at the Burger Boogaloo in the USA. These wild Garagepunkers seem to be made for
the stage, where they live out their craziness and pass it on to the audience – now with their debut‐album you can
take this Japanese craziness right home with you to your livingroom.
Brilliant coverversions of “What A Girl Can't Do” (originally by THE HANGMEN) or THE JOLLY GREEN GIANTS' “Busy
Body” that they add an extra amount of power and punkrock to are mixed in with fantastic FADEAWAYS‐originals

Here Come The No Things LP

Band:THE NO THINGS
Album:Here Come The No Things LP
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Garage Punk

The NO‐THINGS are a new garage‐rock‐ and dirty 60s R'n'R‐band from Edinburgh, Scotland. Quite Low‐Fi and
primitive, they are composed of Laurent from Les BOF! (main vocals, harmonica and percussions), Alex (Ex‐Carpet
Sellers, No Whisky for Callahan (guitar + vocal) ), legendary drummer Calvin from Carbona, The Thanes and too
many other bands since the 80s to list, and finally Scott from Dabster Production, (ex The AMs) on the bass.

Here they come with their debut album (LP released by SOUNDFLAT and CD released by COPASEDISQUES) including
14 all original NO‐THINGS‐songs! The liner‐notes have been written by Lenny Helsing (of THE THANES).

Be prepared for a dirty, rough Medway‐sound with a wild attitude and just enough punkrock‐influence to shake
and party to! Whether it is catchy, furious tunes like “The Norvin” or raw, rockin' garage‐punkers like “Why Do You
Love Me” – it's a wild, screaming piece of vinyl, that makes a lot of (garage‐)noise indeed!

If you dig that Low‐Fi Garage‐sound à la Headcoats or Billy Childish , THE NO‐THINGS might just be your cup of tea!

 

 

A WHOLE LOTTA SHAKERS!

Band:THE SHAKERS
Album:A WHOLE LOTTA SHAKERS!
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:cd
Genre:Surf / Beat / Instrumental

The world famous Cavern Club has a new resident Beat‐quartet to put forward: THE SHAKERS. These guys from Liverpool have
Merseybeat in their veins! After countless, fantastic live‐shows and two almost sold‐out EPs, finally their debut‐album “A
Whole Lotta Shakers!” was first released on vinyl by SOUNDFLAT RECORDS and now, in cooperation with the Japanese label
MAJESTIC RECORDS, also on CD. The CD comes with two additional bonus tracks, which are coverversions of “Red Sails In The
Sunset” ( ‐ originally made popular by the Nat King Cole‐version of 1951 and after that covered by numerous other artists like
The Beatles, Paul Anka, The Searchers etc.) and “Sit Right Down & Cry (Over You)” ( ‐ best known from the versions of Elvis and
The Beatles).

This album is authentic 60’s‐Beat to twist and shout to! The experienced live‐band plays music like the Liverpudlians already
did in the early Sixties; twangy guitars, a dancin’ rhtythm, a bit of moody blues and melodic harmonies amount to an album
containing hits only! While THE SHAKERS’ coverversions of classics like “Soldier of Love”, “Besame Mucho” or “Love Potion #9”
are of high quality and complemented with the band’s own input, their original songs seem to stand out even more. Every
single song is a hit; weather it is the dreamy beat‐ballad “For A Little While” or the catchy “Draggin’ Me Down” with its touch
of danceable 60’s Pop. If you like bands like THE KAISERS or PETER BERRY & THE SHAKE SET, you will more than appreciate THE
SHAKERS’ 60’s‐Beat‐album that proves its authenticity not only through its albumcover.

“A Whole Lotta Shakers!” by THE SHAKERS is a record one simply has to fall in love with. Pure Merseybeat from beginning to
end!

Moonrite

Band:MOONRITE
Album:Moonrite
Label:SOUNDFLAT RECORDS
Format:Vinyl LP
Genre:Psychedelic Rock

Heavily attracted by the mix of genres “gothic/pop/psychedelic”, the two brothers from Grenoble, France
(including Yann Cracker from TOWERBROWN and THE GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENTS) play dark and groovy music,
that sounds like a gloomy hippie trip interpreted with an original organ/drum line up.
The album tells a whole story with its versatile sound. It starts off with “Time Is Fast Running Out”, an extremely
catchy and dark song with a dramatic, incredible organ‐sound, moving on to the more pop‐sounding “The Same Old
Show” and “Let's Start A Fire”, that has an ARTHUR BROWN‐influence with a wild organ‐solo in the middle and a
sinister, gothic church‐organ climax. A definite highlight on the LP is their beautiful, soft ballad “The Giant Wood
Man”, that drags you into a gloomy, dreamy JACCO GARDNER‐kind of mood that you want to get lost in. Then the
A‐side finishes off with “Stella Star” that is a purely instrumental, “outta space”‐psychedelic piece.
The B‐side carries on with the heavy hammond‐organ‐piece “Festa Candelarum” and while “Caught In A Trap”
creates a more groovy 60s‐mood, “The Astral Gate” is a tension‐filled and absolutely spaced‐out song. “La Danse
De Geziale” constitutes their psychedelic sitar/autoharp‐instrumental that displays the brothers' dark approach to
that perfect hippie‐sound. Finally the record finishes with a fabulous interpretation of THE BRAIN TRAPS' “Me”,
that is in fact the only cover version they included on their album.
MOONRITE don't sound like any other band in the SOUNDFLAT RECORDS‐catalogue – or rather, they don't sound
like any other band you'll have heard before. They have an absolutely unique sound that is so powerful, that you
will find yourself wondering how on earth it can be just the two of them creating such a rich and fantastic sound!
