16. THE MERRY MELODIES - 'Eye On' EP (Animal Records 030) 1996
Animal Records operating out of Madrid in Spain released several good to great neo mod/psych 45s during the 90s and The Merry Melodies four track EP is one of those releases.
I've tried to find out some information about the band but have come up with nothing. According to the cover of this EP the band were a five piece unit from Vigo.... someone also gets a credit for being the 'tambourine man'....
The pick of the disc is the mod psycher 'Apple Jake' with it's swirling organ, fuzz leads and hand claps. It's sung in English but I think it would have been better in their native Spanish.
