BIO
—————————–

Funky garage. Afrogaragemambo. Psychedelic voodoo groove. Oh dear… The Mutants are a tough little bastard to exactly pin down what they’re all about. But with music this cool, funky and with an all-out party on!-attitude you really shouldn’t even care.
The Mutants was originally started as an instrumental garage rock band in 1998. As The Mutants slowly began incorporating more rhythmic influences in their music, the line-up was fortified with a percussionist and a saxophone player. Some say the Finnish music scene would never be the same…
The band released their first 7″, “Le Mutant”, in the summer of 2001 on a Finnish label Legal Records after which the band has released a bunch of singles and appeared on compilations worldwide. Tracks from the singles and some compilation appearances were put on one CD by the Greek label Green Cookie Records in 2002.

THE BASH DOGS: Disco Cowboy (LP, 2022)

Cheers to the years! A spirit of exploration, of love and unity – a musical philosophy Los Angeles quartet The Bash Dogs keep alive with their surf disco (*), but also their pure devotion to the art form. After cementing their status as the hosts of the grooviest party in town, The Bash Dogs are gearing up to release their debut album. With a new member, a new vibe, and new songs made to get people moving and grooving all night long, the next chapter of the Dogs starts now.

As the Dogs’ realized their talents could expand far more than just 12 bar blues and guitar solos, they decided to develop something new. Coming from the city where surf/garage/psych bands are never in short supply, the last few months had felt repetitive and stale, like the band was idling. Trying on some dance-floor rhythms and sugary bass lines more influenced by classic funk and disco, their sound transformed. With the spark of this newfound energy and the space to push their songwriting and playing to new levels, Surf Disco was born.

As you can taste bits and pieces of the classic and memorable rock n’ roll sound the Dogs grew up on, this newborn fusion they have created is guaranteed to get you off your feet and it is reflected in the sophisticated groove changes and experimental structure of 2020 single, “Dog Days”—funk guitar and buttery vocals pointing to a refined, more mature sound that the Dogs are ready to further unveil. As soon as the unmistakable groove and the synth waves hit you, there’s no denying it’s slicker, it’s glossier, and it’s the perfect soundtrack for “boogie nights and disco parties.”

SOUNDTRACK: Laisse​-​Moi Respirer (LP, 2022)

DOLORES

Green Cookie Records, Sumerset Records & 3JT Films present …
the soundtracks of two lost cult movies of the 60’s.

In 1963 the French-Italian director Bernard Fabriano (probably a moniker) presented the independent movie “Laisse-Moi Respirer” (Let Me Breathe). – Cannes, March 1963: He suffocates her, she will take her breath away.
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack performed and composed by The Vrooming Crew with Dolores.

In 1969 he returned with another independent film “Sex Call From Paris”. – 1969: two strippers flee Paris to go crazy in Santa-Cruz.
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack performed and composed by The Vrooming Crew with La Grandsart & Dolores.

Nothing is known about Bernard Fabriano. The soundtrack of “Sex Call From Paris” suggest it was a kind of burlesque, striptease, sexploitation grindhouse-style film while “Laisse-Moi Respirer” should have been a rare mix of Nouvelle Vague and 60’s pop culture. The track “Caresse Mes Cheveux” from the later has been used in “Madame Claude” movie trailer (Netflix, 2021). < www.imdb.com/title/tt10307724/ >

The recordings have been discovered last year in the suburbs of Paris. Tape restoration has found place at Sumerset Records ATPR studio. Green Cookie Records proudly presents the soundtracks of those films on limited collectable LPs.
