- Artist: Dukes of Hamburg
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 2/10/2003
Another booger-eatin', half devoted and half contemptuous take on mid-'60s beat by these Bay Area musical thieves, with genuine "* in your pants" enthusiasm shoved into every minute-and-a-half song. Picture '60s Euro-beat music, done up ultra-frantic, 1000 miles per hour. Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Ray Charles and the like, as seen through the eyes of mid-'60s Euro-teen bands like CASEY JONES AND THE GOVERNERS, THE BOOTS, or THE RATTLES, on a coffee overdose that borders on debilitating panic attack. Members include Thilo from the (German) ASTRONAUTS Rusty Quan from THE MUMMIES, PHANTOM SURFERS, BOBBYTEENS, COUNT BACKWURDS, etc.
