23. SICK ROSE - Double Shot (Electric Eye EES 18) 1987
Italian 80s garage legends The Sick Rose released this two single assault in one smart package called 'Double Shot' in 1987. And it's a classic of the genre and well worth adding to your collection.
They cover two choice punkedelic songs. 'Nothin' originally done by The Ugly Ducklings and 'My Time' by The Golden Dawn. But it's the originals by bass player Maurizio Campisi that stand out from the rest.
'It's Hard' is a fast paced punker with fuzz guitar and reverb. The organ is buried deep in the mix, would have preferred this to be louder. The best song is 'When The Sun Refuses To Shine'. Thankfully, the organ is high in the mix and as such this track is a garage punk swinger.
All songs are sung in English.
