hup 2 - 3 - 4
1985 or 86 this is roughly from on miles copeland's i.d label .
its the syd presley experience ..........they later morphed into the godfathers.
i dont think i even heard the godfathers. didnt care for them . but i like dthe presley men .
just fuckin hard psychedelic rocky garagey shit . it was the punk version of 60s psyche.
they did a killer performance on the tube after i had bought this. they did a cover of ono/lennon's 'cold turkey' . they played all dressed mainly in black suits . some top turtle neck action going on ...they looked mean .
this record is ferocious . just a groove with singer sayin 'hup two three four' every now and again . the drums are like bullets passing your ears.
the bside is a track called 'public enemy number one ' . it is also fierce.
there was a follow up ep which contained 'cold turkey' . i never bought it . i held it once in my hands thinking of buying it when it came out , but i didnt . i wish i had. that was it from the presley men . they then became the godfathers. it was a short life.
i bought this record for 99p in Mr Records - the rudest record store owner EVER . you would walk in , and cos you were shabby youth , he would say 'get out' or 'no browsing' .
a fucking charmer.
now playing : blackburn vs bolton
