Archie Bronson Outfit

More than likely this band would have been posted on the blog earlier if it wasn't for the fact their last album was two years old when I began the blog I was out of the habit of listening to it. However, as they've got a new album out, Coconut, I have a renewed interest in the Archie Bronson Outfit. If memories serves this band wasn't very underground for long, getting notable press in the United States for a British garage punk band. Perhaps it was on the coattails of that weird spike of interest that popular culture had with garage rock bands like the White Stripes and the Hives. Notwithstanding such an introduction, I still think the Archie Bronson Outfit was a pretty good band that made some admirable garage music without the flashy guitar riffs and costumes of their contemporaries. Therefore, I've decided to share all three of their albums, but I was provoked mostly by Coconut. On this latest release after four years without a LP they band seems to be trying out all sorts of new things. It is almost an exploration of what genres can be blended with garage rock and result in something enjoyable. Dabbling in psychedelic, noise and 80s new wave aspects it is varied and rather unique.

To be had here:

Fur (2004) [192 VBR kbps]

Derdang Derdang (2006) [224 VBR kbps]

Coconut (2010) [256 VBR kbps]
