EDITORS’ NOTES

After later volumes inched toward non-linear psychedelia and Dutch freakbeat, the final installment in The Rubble Collection returns to a good grip of obscure '60s British singles steeped in mod-flavored guitar pop and lysergic fuzzbox rockers. Some of the more outstanding selections include The Clique’s 1965 bluesy groover “We Didn't Kiss, Didn't Love, but Now We Do” and The Game’s “Gotta Keep on Moving Baby,” a catchy beat tune that sounds highly influenced by early Who hits like “I Can’t Explain” and “La La-La Lies.” There was a short-lived Swinging London moment in the mid- to late '60s when mod and hippie styles overlapped. The music subsequently mirrored this as The Small Faces grew out their hair, dressed more colorfully, and recorded their heady concept album Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake. This, of course, prompted other bands like 5 AM Event to follow suit. Its trippy jam “Hungry” took more risks by infusing oscillating guitar effects and dreamy vocal harmonies into well-tailored rave-up R&B. Orange Machine’s “You Can All Join In” furthered freakbeat’s foray into kaleidoscopic psych.
