Staff Pick and War on Drugs free CD

Every so often here at Repo we like to pick one record that we can all agree on as being the one thing we can't stop listening to. The one we pick today is.....

? and the Mysterians - Action & 96 Tears
(Real Gone Music)

It's hard to say just how cool these dudes were. The eccentric lead singer "?" (he would eventually have his name legally changed to that), the groovy-er than thou attitude and the fact that these guys topped charts with a proto-garage sound that was a little stranger then what most were doing at the time. Oh, and all of this in 1966. With out this band I can only imagine what the Lyres or the Stranglers or even the Strange Boys would sound like.
So needless to say their records were pretty cool too. Somehow though (Legal problems?) they never managed to ever get officially reissued. Which was a bummer cause it made the records pricier and hard to find. Well here's the chance to pick up these records at a decent price and they sound great. I swear that if you by this record you will be 20% cooler.


We're getting some copies of a recording session War On Drugs did for Bowlegs Music. It's amazing and so is everything war on drugs does and best of all IT'S FREE! If you buy any War On Drugs CD/LPs you get this jam for FREE

Don't forget: War On Drugs is playing the Union Transfer on the 17th. Be there or be square.
