The Stomachmouths - "I'm Going Away * Eegah * Cry" ( 2nd 7'' Single - Got To Hurry - 1986)

The Fall of 1985 found the Stomachmouths with an addition. Anna Nystrom played the organ and sang back-up. In their sound nothing changed actually . The same wildmen, playing the same snotty and outta control 60s punk. The follow up to the hugely successful debut 45 released through Got To Hurry records, a label based on Stockholm and basically a record store. It had three monsters in the same vein of their first and manic 45rpm. Wailin' vocals, blast this mutha out guitars, a rhythm section that instead of keeping things at a normal state, derailed them and one of the coolest farfisas the last 30 years at least. The personal favorite "Eegah", still remains one of the coolest surf instros written by a garage band. The legend wants it to be inspired by an Arch Hall Jr. movie. One more thing that made me love immediately this piece of vinyl, was the front sleeve. The band in a classic 60s pose, wearing tailor made suits and ties in a way most original garage bands looked like. Once again, forget the mop tops, this is the real thing!
