...and unlike what you may think about 60s girl groups, some actually played their instruments.... the ronettes and crystals were vocal groups, not rock n roll like the LUV'D ONES......
and they played some dark gritty psych influenced garage at that..... i couldn't believe how out there the LUV'D ONES were, they would've made the 13th floor elevators proud....if either band actually heard of each other.....
and damn they need to be recognized for their place in rock history, or at least by fans of garage and punk........
anyway years after the fact, a cd was issued of all know LUVD ONES tracks and you need this in yr collection....
so click here to download the SUNDAZED compiled, TRUTH GOTTA STAND......
and listen below....if you doubt me.....

Mark Sultan (aka BBQ) began his musical career playing drums in a band called Powersquat, a suburban group which combined a number of diverse influences into their notably violent live shows. After Powersquat, Sultan went on to join the Spaceshits, another Montreal-based band whose members approached Sultan in order to procure a lead singer. Sultan volunteered himself for the position and the band began writing songs together. At the time of Sultan's arrival the Spaceshits were composed of Oily Chi on rhythm guitar, Stinky B. on bass, and Skid Marks on drums, though within a few months Stinky B. was replaced on bass by Blacksnake, a Canadian of Indian descent.

jack-o and the tennessee tearjerkers is more of the southern fried garage rock that you'd expect from a member of the oblivians and the compulsive gamblers.
two or three of the tracks are in high rotation in my itunes, but the whole LP is worth grabbing......

Best In Store Performance: Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Bird (he was in both the Cramps and Gun Club, so when he played a furious set of his own songs mixed with those bands, it blew everyone away)

MAYOR DALEY | Facial Expressions | (Rotted Tooth)
Mayor Daley's MySpace page
Mayor Daley have a reputation as a band with an unstable lineup—the former members listed on their MySpace page outnumber the current ones six to three. Fortunately they seem to thrive on chaos. The queasy noise rock onFacial Expressions—the first release on the vinyl-and-cassette label run by Cacaw drummer Kyle Reynolds—sounds ready to fall apart at any second, like the Zipper at the county fair, and listening to it feels an awful lot like cheating death on a carnival ride put together by day laborers. Mayor Daley’s songs tend to be sludgy, lumpy, and long—only one of the four here clocks in under ten minutes—and their unambitious arrangements never include more than drums, bass, turded-out guitar, and Kelly Carr’s vocals, which are firmly in the haunted-woman tradition of Siouxsie Sioux and Lydia Lunch. Sometimes—like toward the end of “Showdown”—the band’s playing is so loose and poundingly simple that you can easily imagine they’ve turned their instruments over to a bunch of outpatients who wandered in off the street, but then they’ll turn around and deliver a tight bit of almost jazzy swing—maybe to prove they can do it, but probably just to fuck with us.
Mayor Daley, Cacaw, Onyou
