Day 25

July 31st 2017

Today, let’s steep our­selves in one of the great­est 1967 exam­ples of primeval garage rock, that pre-punk phe­nom­e­non that most­ly relied on enthu­si­asm, cama­raderie and at least one rich par­ent. Ah, California’s Care­tak­ers of Decep­tion fit the bill admirably with ‘Cut­tin’ Grass’, their sole 7” sin­gle offer­ing a splen­did­ly taut, freaked-out, yelp-o-thon whose splat­tery machine-gun drums and buck­ing bron­co vocals have graced all the best Garage com­pi­la­tion LPs since the song’s redis­cov­ery back in the late-70s. What a shame after such man­ic aban­don as this that the Care­tak­ers’ only oth­er release was its B-side: a charm­ing near folk-rock lol­lop that went by the mag­nif­i­cent name of ‘X+Y=13’.
