Calvin brought me in a copy of the first album by THE RABBLE yesterday & it knocked my socks off! They were a mid-60's band from Montreal that sang in English (which is rare) and the lyrics are very weird! The song "Black Potato" is pretty punk sounding with goofy primitive chanting. I can't find my favorite track online but these 2 are good. "Golden Girl" was an accidental hit, the only one they ever had... they got pretty big because of this song but they were too weird to be popular so it didn't last. This record is really psychedelic lyrically & musically. This track "The Crushing Hand of Mother" gets pretty crazy about mid-way through, sort of sounding like it comes from northern Africa or something. Canadians ROCK.
