It is absolutely staggering to consider the amount of great rock and roll music our ears have never heard.  Over the course of the last 60+ years, the task to find these buried diamonds has gotten exponentially more challenging.  That’s where Light in the Attic comes in.

LITA Records, our beloved rangers in search of rock and roll’s rare relics of yesteryear, have dug up yet another A-1 artifact.  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.  Whether their hair wasn’t short enough or their hooks weren’t Beatles enough, it just never happened for the Cinq.  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.  If you want pure garage pop at its source from the glory days of its reign, then behold The Kitchen Cinq.  Your blue vinyl awaits.
