The Roaring 420s: You Can't Get Out Alive

Dresden based psychedelic garage rock band The Roaring 420s wear their influences on their sleeve on the twelve songs on their second full-length You Can't Get Out Alive, providing the belated missing link between The Velvet Underground, The Beach Boys and The Kinks, with a few early Sixties guitar an organ parts thrown in for good measure. These Germans love reverb and sitars, pulling off an album that could be mistaken for a long lost underground record. Time travel will never happen, but these songs come pretty damn close.

With the Jefferson Airplane guitar sound reigning supreme in Flesh Parade, the rumbling rocker Tax-deductible Suicide and the Reed tribute Hey Lou they have at least three songs that could sneaked in into jukebox filled with vintage 45s. Time travel will never happen, but The Roaring 420s come pretty damn close.
