THE BACKDOOR MEN - DANCE OF THE SAVAGES

 



35. THE BACKDOOR MEN - "Going Her Own Way" / "Dance Of The Savages" (FAB Records BM-S 002) 1986

This was Swedish band The Backdoor Men's second and last 45. Robert Jelinek and Hans Ingemansson would later reform as The Creeps.
'Going Her Own Way' written by chief songwriter Ingemansson is a 12 string jangle delight and reminds me of those cool pop ballads by The Rolling Stones circa 1965/66...

The other side 'Dance Of The Savages' is a surf punk instrumental showing their garage side. This one has a strange opening of backwards tapes. The organ led pounder hints at the sound The Creeps would adopt on their fabulous debut album. Sounds a whole lot like The Prisoners.

Not only did The Backdoor Men have the songs they also had the 'way-out' image to back up their greatness......
