The Victors: Victorious (US Garage, 1964/66)

Dan Dailey, Jim Kane, Terry Knudsen and Gary Leach were memebers of the Scotsmen. Also related with the Litter.

This Minneapolis group later became The Litter and they can also be heard on the Get Hip album (GHAS 5066), Electras vs. Scotsmen / Victors (1993). It contains tracks from 1965 to 1968. All bar Denny Waite were previously in The Scotsmen.

Yes.. these guys were young.. and their covers were so raw and crude !! really garageones !. Pay attention to all the songs, from "midnight hour" to "good golly miss molly"(rawest version ever!) and a couple of more songs that are really interesting. Really like this kind of songs/sounds/style (simple songs, raw voices, crude instrumentation, easy to play, hee... jjeje) , so hope you can understand me.

Weird, it must be either this iMac or Unarchiver that's the problem as it's not extracting password protected rar's from another site as well. I guess I'll have to wait til I get back on the PC next month.

Hola Pablo,
Thanks for all the great stuff you post in here. This is to let you know that, since a few days, megaupload doesn't work at all (tried in firefox, IE and chrome...) and I missed this one when you posted it. Therefore, it would be really great if you could post it elsewhere (zshare, for instance, is ok). I'm fond of all things garage-60s and didn't know this one, I'm anxious about hearing it...
Gracias compañero!

Raskolnikov said...

Really essential garage listen (and no less than 2 versions of "ain't gonna eat out my heart": wow!), thanks very mucho. BTW, I found a workaround for the megaup crap by tweeking the html/js from a local copy... tricky, but worthy!!!
GRACIAS again.

Thank you. I'm in love with the Litter's "Action Woman" right now, and it'll be cool to hear how they sounded as a band pre-Litter.
