Rise Above Records has something truly special for the psych garage crate-diggers this Halloween. Â The Sorrows, a British freakbeat band from the mid 60s, have re-emerged…and sound uncannily amazing, as if they’re still a group of mid-20s hooligans rocking out their garage in Coventry, England.
If Captain Beefheart decided to form a proto-metal group and tour with Iron Butterfly, they’d sound like The Sorrows. Â They’re a mix of everything you love about 60s rock obscurities, and Rise Above has 100 die-hard editions of their new 7”, so finish up that king-sized Kit Kat that you stole from your kid’s halloween bag and buy one of these beauties.
Here they are almost 5 decades ago:
And here they are today, better than ever, as if nothing has changed in 50 years:
Vocalist Don Fardon left the band early on and embarked on a semi-successful solo career, which included a top 5 hit with Indian Reservation I 1970.
Today, Fardon has re-joined The Sorrows and they are once again out on the road tearing things up. Find a Cave is a brand new recording (produced by former guitarist Roger Lomas) and continues to keep the early spirit of the band alive.
