Kasenetz-Katz Singing Orchestral Circus, “Rumble ’69” (UK B-side)

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 1:30 am

The KASENETZ-KATZ organization was responsible for a number of odd, throwaway non-LP B-sides during their heyday, and this one is a gem. Never wanting to waste a potential hit on a flipside, they created a number of uncommercial filler sides (“Sticky Sticky,” anyone?) that in hindsight are often more interesting than the A-sides they backed. So it is with this distorto-guitar workout, with a series of free-associated phrases, including sections from nursery rhymes, which seems largely off-the-cuff. This of course has NOTHING to do with Link Wray’s own RUMBLE 69 (the one with the added harmonica). Enjoy!
