I just laughed out loud reading so called music literary 'expert' Richie Unter-burgers review of this album.
He obviously has cotton wool stuck in his brains. The semi-modern Detroit psych outfit 'OUTRAGEOUS CHERRY' seemed to have styled themselves
from the sound of one song on here.. "Poor shell of a man", written by Dodd. (or did they simply cover the song?) Every song has merit and even with the psychedelic vibe, they don't go too gimmicky. I don't enjoy the version of "riot" as much as the film version but that's not really relevant as it fits the album. Some interesting statements and repetitive view about Geo-political control in a 'game' system the world we exist in. This statement could be a release for Dodd since he was incubated in the Micky Mouse club.. probably was through some nasty stuff as a child and could also be connected to why they wanted to put this album under, aside from the sexual connetation of "Try It" which could be interpreted a few ways, and really is the most lacklustre track on the album but still holds up with it's heavy rock groove and wicked guitar break. This album has risen to the top for my personal listening, compared to the other Standells albums as a whole. A must have big label garage psych album.
