RETURN OF THE AMPHETAMINE GENERATION - Various (Dig The Fuzz DIG 032LP) 1998
I've spent the last couple of days spinning this vinyl compilation album from the late 90s on Dig The Fuzz.
"Return Of The Amphetamine Generation" is a mid 1960s collection of the odd obscure B-Side but mostly previously unreleased recordings from one of a kind acetates and private pressings..... including unknown groups called The Uprooted, Themselves, James King & the Farinas, The Falcons, The Nomads, Those Fadin' Colours, The In-Sect (plus more)
Well worth getting a hold of. Quality release with plenty of informative notes and a few group pix.
The group I'll focus on from this disc are The Falcons. Sadly little is known about the group behind the unreleased "Phone Me." The Ilford Sound label, based in Essex was in operation between 1964 - 1965 and recorded acetates by several other beat groups including Dave Anthony & the Classics and The Integrals.
