Phantoms, Meteorites, Moonshots & Devil’s Herds – The UK Instro Scene Vol. 4

Long ago, before things started to get Twangy, Britain’s leading instrumentalists usually either honked, parped, or plinked. Dance bands filled the airwaves, and it was wall-to-wall waltzes and foxtrots. Turgidity ruled. The arrival of R’n’R and Skiffle livened things up, and so gradually and not to mention rather belatedly – Britain’s teenagers were dragged into the post-WWII era. Of course it was R’n’R which ultimately laid down the new ground rules, at which point Instromania steadily began to gather pace. Well here is our fourth volume chock full of rare sounds not to be found elsewhere except on those highly collectable old vinyl discs until now.
