Like the old saying “digging a hole to China.” insatiable record collectors go through stages, digging deeper & deeper to find the next unknown treasure. Collectors of garage/trash 50’s & 60’s oddities have grown in recent years like a wild fungus & many vinyl mysteries have been solved only to open new ones. Looking to the east we have indeed literally dug a hole to a 60’s Singapore & Malaysian weirdsville, represented here by a family style nightmare of rickshaw crashing left of center wild rockers that would never make it onto even a collectors compilation of this sort. Everything from wild surf to Trashmen styled thud to almost Shaggs ineptitude/beauty to garage pounders & even a retarded psychedelic comedy track, put this record on & drown in the delightful soy sauce vinyl insanity that is Chinese Rocks!
