A lost gem from the past! The studio-explotation German band The Ravers, a.k.a The Tonics. Under the production of Herbert Hildebrandt (ex-member of The Rattles, credited on some internet blogs to be some kind of German Kim Fowley), members of The Rattles / Wonderland (Achim Reichel) and The German Bonds produced a series of studio albums as cash-in operations, among them some very known works like Hell Preachers Inc. or Bokaj Retsiem.
Mad, Mad World is one of those amazing releases. Having in mind the hardest beat/psych rock sounds of the era (the LP was originally released in 1969) and the rhythms that move a dancefloor they produced this superb collection of groovy Hammond/fuzz/wah-wah driven freak rockers. More than one song here should be on any genre DJ's bag, the most direct one being 'What You Can Do For Your Country' but with the whole LP packed with cool songs moving from the Kinks inspired 'We've Got Too Much' to early Deep Purple Hammond vs. lead guitar duels.
