FRONT PAGE NEWS - You Better Behave

FRONT PAGE NEWS - 'Thoughts' / 'You Better Behave' (Dial 4052) Jan 1967

Front Page News hailed from Tulsa, Oklahoma and before this cool double sided 45 was released they were known as The New Imperials. As the latter they played standard soul fare but as Front Page News their sound was a whole lot fuzzier.

'Thoughts' is a garage psycher with plenty of fuzz. The flip 'You Better Behave' is a short burst of garage pop with clattering tambourine and a fast tempo. The producer on this disc is the respected Edwin Greines. He also worked with The Penthouse Five and Word D.

Dial Records released a few other garage kicks, notably The Daybreakers 'Psychedelic Siren' and The What-Knots 'I Ain't Dead Yet', but the label was much more well known for it's soul output.
