HEAD AND THE HARES - "Two Tymes" / "Lost" (Stanton Park M-107) 1992
I posted images of both Head and the Hares singles way back in 2007 with the intention of writing about them, it seems that I forgot! For those who don't know Head and the Hares formed during the late 80s but at this point in time they were called The Spookies, their sound was also radically different going all out for 60s garage punkers.
They changed direction and name then started creating a much more subtle sound mixing low-key folk rock with the purist teen sounds from New England from the '66 era. Their cover versions became much more obscure with less focus on "Back From The Grave" style boneshakers.
"Two Tymes" is a group original and sounds very cool indeed but even better is their version of "Lost" written by T. McCall. Is this Toussaint McCall? Anyway, if it is I've never heard the original but The Head & the Hares version certainly delivers the goods. Seek out this single as fast as you can for your kicks and shakes.
