Note: Single ‘Not If You Were The Last Dandy On Earth’ was on the soundtrack of
Jim Jarmusch‘s 2005 film ‘Broken Flowers’ with the great Bill Murray…

Turn Up The Volume! says: striking garage rawness reinforced with BJT’s vintage
psych grooves and fueled, here and there, with some great sitar vibes. One of the
most impressive achievements of Anton Newcombe and his gang …

Three of many highlights: Super-Sonic / Not If You Were The Last Dandy On Earth / Satellite…

* SUPER-SONICintoxicating sitar injected groove

* NOT IF YOU WERE THE LAST DANDY ON EARTH you know this cracker’s story

* SATELLITE (lyrics clip) – sonic love drone from space
