The Troggs – The Trogg Tapes (Vinyl LP)
The Troggs are garage music forefathers and are cited as influences on MC5, R.E.M., The Buzzcocks, The Fleshtones and countless others
60s Brit band The Troggs and their classic rock hit ‘Wild Thing’ is an international classic covered numerously by Jimi Hendrix, X, Fancy and Siouxsie & The Creatures. Additional revered and often covered songs include ‘Love Is All Around’, ‘With A Girl Like You’ and ‘I Can’t Control Myself’.
The band recorded four studio albums in the 60s before a hiatus in the early 70s. They recorded two albums in the mid-part of the decade with ‘The Trogg Tapes’ (not to be confused with the legendary spoken word tapes) in 1976.
This eleven-track album has a 70s glam-punk sound with raucous tracks like ‘Supergirl’ and ‘Down South to Georgia’ along with cover versions of Rufus Thomas’s ‘Walkin’ The Dog’ and Brendon Dunning’s ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Little Lady’.
