The Chob (Choab) - Singles


Από ελάχιστες έως ανύπαρκτες είναι οι πληροφορίες για αυτό γκρουπ. Βρήκα ελάχιστα πράγματα που αφορούσαν κυρίως τα σινγκλάκια τους από εδώ http://www.finerecordingstudio.com/g45/ ( βάζω τα κείμενα) παρά βιογραφικά στοιχεία

Τhe most important thing to know about this 45 is how to spot the phoney. It has "5016" and a squiggle in the deadwax area, on the a-side. The real thing has "LAVETTE LA 5016" and "SJW - 9190". As well as the neat extra numbers, you get double the volume and clarity when you shell out your megabucks for an original copy. Otherwise, the ring-in is almost indistinguishable from the real thing. The appearance of a flood of bootleg copies did little to affect the value of the original (and therefore the position on the G45). More damaging (or thrilling if you got one of them) was the discovery of a small cache of mint copies 2 years ago which we think may have come from Lindy Blaskey's personal stock. Hear it on Teenage Shutdown TS-6604, plus a host of other compilations (M&P1, CF1, SA4, etc.) The flip is a killer version of the Young Rascals classic.

Θεωρώ ότι το We're Pretty Quick δεν σας έχει «ξεφύγει». Μιλάμε για ένα garage killer πραγματικό. Πολύ καλό επίσης είναι το Why Am I Alone? που αναρωτιέται ο καλλιτέχνης το οποίο κυκλοφόρησαν ως The Choab.
Τhe classic example of a track elevated by a killer lead break with scream. Until the break, it's a fine but standard garage mover, nothing too special. When the break hits, the energy level peaks, and stays high for the rest of the track. This is the second 45 by the band, who released an even better (but not as rare) 45 on the Lavette label as the Chob. The second 45 shows how the guys wanted their name to be pronounced. From Albuquerque, New Mexico. Hear it on Teenage Shutdown TS-6603. The flip is one of the best versions of the Boyce & Hart classic.

Προφανώς και δεν έχω τα σινγκλάκια (τα «άπαντα» των Chob ουσιαστικά) ωστόσο τα μάζεψα ως mp3 αφού αξίζουν απόλυτα τον κόπο να τα έχουμε και να τα ακούμε.

Personnel:
KEITH BRADSHAW bs A
ROBBIE CRNICH keyb'ds A
DAVE ELLEDGE drms A
DICK HANSON vcls, gtr A
QUINTON MILLER ld gtr A

45s:
1 We're Pretty Quick/Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore (Lavette LA 5016) 1966
2 Why Am I Alone?/I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone (QQ 724) 196?

Arguably their first 45 was one of the best 45s to come out of New Mexico in the mid-sixties. They came from the Albuquerque and were also responsible for Why Am I Alone? credited to Choab (a euphemism for pimple!).
Compilation appearances have so far included: We're Pretty Quick on Mayhem & Psychosis, Vol. 1 (LP), Mayhem & Psychosis, Vol. 1 (CD), The Chosen Few, Vol. 1 (LP), Chosen Few Vol's 1 & 2 (CD), Songs We Taught The Fuzztones (Dble LP & Dble CD) and Teenage Shutdown, Vol. 4 (LP & CD); We're Pretty Quick and Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore on New Mexico Punk From The Sixties (LP) Sixties Archive Vol. 4 (CD); and Why Am I Alone? on Punk Classics, Vol. 1 (7" EP), Punk Classics (CD) and Teenage Shutdown, Vol. 3 (LP & CD).

Tracks:
1. We're Pretty Quick
2. Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore
3. Why Am I Alone?
4. I'm Not Your Steppin' Stone
