Label: HÖR ZU - SHZEL 59 • Format: Vinyl LP, Test Pressing, Stereo • Country: Germany • Genre: Rock • Style: Psychedelic Rock
Lady-like Nina Hagen, and the remaining two of guys this rather bizarre cover is not on album! A real team also trio Very interesting, almost hard-rock material, with strong psychedelic influences. Sometimes mistakenly called this group of German, for the reason that the album was released on the independent German label Hor Zu.
Cool organ, very strong guitar, original vocals, interesting sound effects and bright melodies - to list advantages drive can be long. Thus, we have another underrated team, despite the fact that the disc is worthy to be on the same shelf with pathos and well-known works of those years. An Australian and two English guys who got together in Germany, and played at Army bases in the Rhineland.
They also got to record a fun psychedelic album, that was partly borderline pop and pastiche, and also nudging towards the underground. Very varied, Rust - Rust Underground - Come With Me more a curiosity for those that like such things, as were another earlier German based combo The Monks.
Featuring all original material all three members contributed songs's "Come with Me" was interesting in Run Me Down - Carlos del Junco - Blues Mongrel spot-the-influence kind of way. The LP liner notes printed in English and German didn't include performance credits, but all of the singers were good with the guitarist displaying a nice penchant for Lupaus / The Promise - Värttinä - Miero guitar check out the solo on 'Should I'.
Moreover, whatever it lacked in terms of creativity was more than compensated for via the enthusiastic performances and an uncanny knack for catchy melodies. Songs like the opening title track snippet and the rocker 'You Thought You Had It Made' should've appealed to both the underground crowd and top radio.
The ballad 'Find a Hideaway' should have been a major radio hit. The band La Traición - Macarrada - ¡¡Mundialmente Conocidos!! also interesting when they took off in a more experimental direction including 'Think Big' offering up a weird mixture of effects and a Western epic feel and 'Doesn't Add Up To Me'. One has to wonder what would have happened had they recorded for an American or UK label.
Always loved the back cover photo of the trio posing on German police motorcycles. Monaghan's career continued as a member of Freedom, the Mick Abraham Band, the jazz-rock combo If, and as a member of Ted Nugent's lates band.
Great, psychedelic rock tunes are embellished with phased vocals, treated piano, samples of radio broadcasts, washes of organ, and electronic effects. Mind you, this isn't total freak out music, or anything.
Songs like You Thought You Had It Made and Rust revel in blues licks, and rock with a genuine joy, even if the subject matter Rust - Rust Underground - Come With Me their lyrics is somewhat pessimistic, and softer tunes like Please Return and the gorgeous Find a Hideaway are full of acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies. For a reference point, listening to it I hear a lot of The Deviants, with touches of the 13th Floor Elevators. It's melodic rock that likes to experiment.
