SEVEN IN THE MIX! 7 Crackers For Week 17…

A brand new SEVEN IN THE MIX for a brand new week!
Seven splendid strokes I played on repeat these past days
Seven terrific tracks to feed body and soul all week long
Turn up the volume! Music is the dope! Here’s the stuff!

1/ ‘Mushrooms’ by YES YES WHATEVER (Melbourne, Australia)
Crazy, deranged and bloody cranky, that’s exactly how these garage misfits sound like, probably stimulated by quality mushrooms. And their band name is wacko too. Hallelujah!


2/ ‘Kids’ by HEY BABY! (Brisbane Australia)
This poppy jingle jangle surf punk kick will electrify all your limbs, instantly. Amplified ecstasy to go completely bananas to. I guess, this happens when Aussie kids have fun.
