Distortions

    Minneapolis was their home turf. But in the decades that followed, appreciation for Distortions swelled to tidal wave proportions among fans of amped-up, ramped-up, balls-to-the-wall rock ‘n’ roll. Headlined by two red-hot, stone-cold killers, “Action Woman” and ”Soul Searchin’”’ both penned by producer Warren Kendrick, Distortions is arguably the greatest private-press garage band album of the era. The Litter formed in 1966 as a merger between two popular Twin Cities combos.

    The Litter

    Action Woman / A Legal Matter - Blue Vinyl Edition

      THIS IS A RECORD STORE DAY 2014 EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED TO ONE PER PERSON.

      The 1966 debut by the Minneapolis-based Litter! “Action Woman” and “A Legal Matter” are stomping, searing ’60s sides - an unstoppable collection of snotty vocals and fuzzy guitar lines. The Litter become a determined collective mind on these performances, and the result is a coupling that stands side-by-side with other iconic recordings of the era, like “Sweet Young Thing” and “You’re Gonna Miss Me.” Even the tambourine and maracas have loud and clear attitude that few other records can match! The original Scotty 45 is a cornerstone of any serious 1960s record collection, and now is reproduced in this lovingly created edition that features a Scotty Records-styled sleeve with a rare vintage group photo and notes by TeenBeat Mayhem! author Mike Markesich. “Action Woman” is a flawless hallmark performance, and “A Legal Matter” takes the Who’s music from the Mod clubs into the suburban garage with jet fuel-powered tempo and aggression. With in-the-studio presence and clarity taken from the original masters, this is the sound of garage rock maturing into psychedelia - prime, postured and pulsating!

      • New picture sleeve with a rare photo of the Litter, plus notes by author Mike Markesich!
      • Stunning audio taken from the original reels - pressed on blue wax!
      • Scotty Records 45 labels, just like the 1967 original!!!
