12. THE PROJECTILES - 'Some Things Never Change'/'I Need Somebody' (Jargon Records 1285006) 1986
The Projectiles came from Rochester, New York and probably formed after hearing Rochester's own garage royalty The Chesterfield Kings. Judging by the pic sleeve the band weren't exactly purist in their dress code with the baggy jeans, Magnum P.I. sunshades and the guy wearing what looks like Doc Martin boots.
The cover graphics are also of a low standard aswell. No doubt the combination of dodgy image and bad psych lettering would put some people off buying the 45. Fortunately, it didn't stop me.
'Some Things Never Change' is decent garage with snarled vocals and a constant high pitched farfisa organ in the mix. The flip is an OK cover of 'I Need Somebody' originally by ? and the Mysterians of course.
Both sides were recorded at Saxon Studios, Rochester in November 1985.
