It is absolutely staggering to consider the amount of great rock and roll music our ears have never heard. Â Over the course of the last 60+ years, the task to find these buriedÂ diamonds has gotten exponentially more challenging. Â That’s where Light in the Attic comes in.
LITA Records, our belovedÂ rangersÂ in search ofÂ rock and roll’s rare relics of yesteryear, have dug up yet another A-1Â artifact. Â The 1960s harvested an astounding quantity of choice garage rock, and The Kitchen Cinq (like the majority of their peers) churned out an ample supply of sweaty foot-stomping shanties, but couldn’t survive the beast we all know as the music industry. Â Whether their hair wasn’t short enough or their hooks weren’t Beatles enough, it just never happened for the Cinq. Â Until now, that is.
Feast your eyes upon the damn near complete works of the band, a 28-track manifesto…preserved in amber for almost 5 decades. Â If youÂ want pure garage popÂ at its source from the glory days of its reign, then behold The Kitchen Cinq. Â Your blue vinyl awaits.
