Up next from Norton:
Chimney Sweeps - Devil Girl LP "UNKNOWN GARAGE MONSTERS UNLEASHED! A DOZEN BASHERS UP FROM DOWN UNDER! INCLUDES PRE-SWEEPS COBWEBS! TWELVE FULL INCHES OF INSANITY! TOO RAW N RAMPANT FOR TENDER EARS! 38 YEARS AHEAD OF THEIR TIME! ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL! For the first time on wax, here's a dozen crude, unissued 1966-67 garage recordings by Australia's answer to the Alarm Clocks, the truly remarkable Chimney Sweeps. These guys never boasted a release during their short "career" (they played maybe 15 gigs tops) and were totally unknown even amongst top Australian collectors until recently. The twelve sides include wild originals like Lies, Lies and the demented Cold Fish ("she ain't no gold fish!") plus three cool covers - their dragged-through-a-ditch take on the Rolling Stones' Grown Up Wrong must be heard to be believed! The big crunch is capped by a '66 stab at the title song by the Sweeps' earlier incarnation, the Cobwebs. Features a full band bio, whacked out group photo (the only one!) and a buzzin' dozen garage killers!"
Arch Hall Jr & the Archers - Wild Guitar CD. "Gargantuan set heralds the mega-cool output of our hero Arch Hall, Jr. and his band, covering his recording career from 1959-1963. Includes massive illustrated bio-booklet packed with info, interviews and flat out eye openers! Combines his singles with unknown studio recordings, movie music from the master tapes plus never released 1962 live Pensacola drive-in theatre show! Wild Guitar, Konga Joe, Monkey In My Hat Band, Twist Fever, Stake Theme, Growing Taller Every Day, Sneakin' Around, If A Man Answers, Archers Theme, Susie Q more!".

"Our next gig is with TV SMITH on Saturday, February 12th in Barcelona, at the Deja Vu club. Make sure you post it on your site, remind those brits ultra-cheap flights can still be found for those days! I'd be willing to try and arrange accomodation for anyone who drops me a line at, but they should act quick!"

Unfortunately I can't swing that but maybe YOU can?
