The LYRES - 'Boston' / 'Shake It Some More' (Norton Records 45-020) 1993
It's certainly a basic plod but I think it works well because it has a primal beat, heavy bass lines and the mono man's Vox Continental organ (which is a cool sound). Mid way through 'Boston' the band decide to play 'Dirty Water' by The Standells (ha ha ha) it's like two great songs for the price of one and all about their home town of Boston.
'Shake It Some More' is another garage rock tune and I'm sure I've heard it done by some other band. The writer credit is 'Sheridan' and it could be an original by Dutch Beat band The Jay Jays. I'll do a bit research and confirm later?
Also the band on the cover is obviously not The Lyres. Can anyone confirm who these country looking hicks were on the picture sleeve? The bass player looks like one of those scary inbreeds from 70s film Deliverance.
