The Phinx - Sometimes (1968)

Unknown 60s garage band, who were once believed to be the Gants in disguise.

As part of his tax-scam activities, the legendary 'crazy cajun' Huey P Meaux reached into his vast vault of Texas '60s recordings and came up with a bunch of demos (?) from an obscure Houston group. Once assumed to be the Gants under an alias, this does feature a Gants cover ("My Baby Don't Care") which is the most garage-sounding thing here, unless you count the amusing "I Feel A Whole Lot Better" with altered, simplified lyrics and a long section where the guitar-break apparently went AWOL. All over a neat slice of circa 1967 organ/guitar teenbeat, given a weird twist by the tax scam angle. None of the tracks can be found anywhere else, and have never been reissued. Mediocre pressing but clean-looking, with a slight warp which does not affect play ~
