The King Star Echo - Caro A-Go-Go


Product Information

This is a beautful repro of the rare "Caro A-Go-Go" LP,  a classic Hong Kong surf instrumental and garage rock killer! King Star Echowas from Thailand, however, the band recorded and released this one Asian Beat gem in Hong Kong, '66. Infested with twangy, acid-drenched guitar and demented, garage-a-delic organ, this lost artifact from the Far East will have enthusiasts of mid-Sixties Beat music going ape. 
The album opens with a raucous rendering of the Thai folk classic "Poo Yai Lee" and then blazes through more than a half-dozen surf and instrumental classics that will have fans of reverb drenched guitar in awe of the axe-wielding genius, Mr. V. Ruannark. King Star Echo's renditions of "Bumble Bee", "The Fugitive" and "Peter Gunn" blend perfectly the music of the West with the exotic temperament of the East rife with lysergic-infused guitar onslaughts. Demonstrating their ability to get primitive and deranged while still sounding like coherent musicians, for closers, the band treats us to some truly monstrous garage covers of the Kinks "You Really Got Me" and the Rolling Stones "Satisfaction". 
If you dig the strange, rockin' and psych-y sounds of the Simla Beat records, Cambodian Rocks & the Thai Beat A Go-Gos, pick this up quick - there's only 700 of 'em! Your $20 investment will soon triple...
