OK.....trying to put the Garage Greats thing behind me now.....I will still honor requests for missing discs, as long as you put them in the proper place and are niec about it. After Monday 1/14/13, NO MORE....I have to draw the line somewhere, I want to get around to doing some of the OTHER things that made this blog, uhhh, "great"......I REALLY apapreciate all of the new "friends of the blog" I have inherited during the "Garage Greats" period but I am totally burned out on it, and I hope that the most of you stick around and enjoy some of the other fine, esoteric music that lines my sheleves.....if you were here ONLY for the "Garage Greats", thanks, you helped really put the blog on the map, if your tastes run pretty much only in that direction, I'll tell you right now it'll likely be a while before I run down that alleya gain, but ya never know. Thanks to everyone who patronizes my blog, who comments, who listens, who gives a shout out to the occasional "Gallery of Visual Perversion" bonuses......SPECIAL thanks to those (months ago) who took the time to check oout my great friends SAMAX, their videos and MP3's are still avaialble here somewhere, they truly ARE stars of the future should there be even a modicum of justice in our universe.

It took me a while to think of what I was going to do after qrapping up the "Garage Greats" series and related fill-ins......Tonight we venture to the early 1970's glam-rock era, to Japan of all places, to investigate the legendary SADISTIC MIKA BAND! I loed this band in Junior High, most of my running amtes HATED them (that non-English language bias creeping in and showing its ugly self again).....to me they somewhat reminded me of my VERY FAVORITE band of the era, Roxy Music, if a Japanese Roxy Music is something you can get your mind around.

For the most part Sadistic Mika Band were Guitarist/synthist/vocalist Kazuhiko Kato, his wife Singer Mika Kato, Yukihiro Takashi on drums, Masayoshi Takanaka on Guitar, synth, and vox, and bassist Rey Ohara.

Thier 1973 self-titled debut is a winner, if you can get INTO SOMETHING  different and of coure can deal with the Japanese vocals.....I enjoy it quite a bit, "Galaxy Way" and "I'm Sittin on the Edge of the Skies" remind me of the glam rock greats of the era, previously mentioned Roxy Music and maybe some T Rex......it's a fine album, expand your horizons.

Second album "Black Ship" is just as fine if not better, this time even the TITLES are for the most part in Japanese.....the last track is conveniently entitled "Sayanora", WHO SAYS we can't understand any of their international meanings? Album 3 pretty much completes the picture, it is entitled "Hot! Menu!", and they seem to attempt to strtech out a bit musically, the first two tracks are instros.....the finale, "Tequila Sunrise" is NOT a version of the Eagles non-clalssic, but rather Mika babbling about some drug she took, and by the end of the track, she seems to be snoring! Hard to make this stuff up gang!

Hey I am SO HAPPY today.....the Garage Greats series, while a fine accomplishment in my ego-inflated opinion, is OVER.....now I can get back to the stuff I LOVE the unsearched corridors and creavices of the great mansion that IS rock n roll.......OK, you guys were GREAT with your comments on Garage Greats. Please keep up the comments, now that things are back to norm....if you are new, pleae browse through the old posts and you can see what I am about.......and I would love to hear any requests that you guys would like to have put up here......it's OUR blog, they are just MY CD's ....no idea what it'll be tomorrow, but you know I'll ahve SOMETHING for you, something that hopefull you were unfamilar with or "always wanting" to hear.....

Kazuhiko Kato took his own life in 2009.....hopefully he is at peace now.

Rember de drill! Links in a little while. I love all you people and hopw the come-lately "Garage Greats" crowd sitcks around and contributes.......we are all about SHARING music......(I haven't done this one for a while)......sharing, not stealing.....if for any reason anything I post here hurts your delicate feelings, ask ME (as did Bratmobile), and I will remove it......If you wish FEWER people to hear your music than MORE people to hear your music, THAT is up to you and I will comply.....but we are SHARING.....not stealing......IF you have been brainwashed into thinking otherwise, think about what your Mom told you when you were little......"Always share....sharing is GOOD" she told you. She was correct. There is lots of great music out there that some of us cannot access......if I have it, I will SHARE it with you.....hopefully, you with me, as well. If only the REST of the world operated as such.

Love ya see ya tomorrow with GOd knows what!
