The Preachers - Nod, Shake & Stomp

The Preachers - Nod, Shake & Stomp

'The Preachers are one of the seminal obscure bands of the mid-'60s British rock/pop scene, with links to the family trees of the Rolling Stones, Bill Wyman and the Herd. However, they are also one of the last-heard, with only a solitary 1965 single having previously gained a release. Nod, Shake & Stomp finally changes all that, unearthing two previously unreleased studio demos from 1964 plus no less than fourteen live tracks that were recorded in the same year. The result is an album of vintage, swaggering British teenage beat/R&B. Nothing less than the full history of the Preachers, this release features two original members of the Herd in former Rolling Stones drummer Tony Chapman and singer Terry Clark, as well as the astonishing young guitarist Steve Carroll, recorded just weeks before his tragically early death in a car crash (he was replaced by Peter Frampton). The album includes an insert featuring lengthy liner notes from Bill Wyman that document his journey from pre-Preachers outfit the Cliftons to the Stones, with the aid of some great, previously unpublished photos and gig posters from Bill's personal collection of memorabilia. This important slice of British beat/R&B history is a vinyl-only release of 1000 numbered copies on 190gm vinyl.

8 songs! Here is the entire output of THE PREACHERS )and their later incarnation, JOHN ENGLISH & THE LEMONDROPS).This 60's Punk band is best known for their scorching version of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?" which appeared on an early volume of Pebbles.This pounding slab of '60s insanity finally gives justice to one of the toughest sounding LA garage bands.
"Although playing the LA clubs and appearing on a number of TV shows throughout their career, The Preachers only managed to release three singles, and as John English And The Lemondrops one further record before disbanding.Garage fans will know them for their rousing version of 'Who Do You Love', which was a huge favourite from the first Pebbles compilation many moons ago. Nothing else they recorded reached that fevered wildness, although 'Stay Out Of My World' spices up the snot-nosed Dylan format admirably and 'Don't You Complain' maintains a typically disenfranchised philosophy. And when it comes to the moodier, softer style the band shine on 'Pain And Sorrow'.If more recordings were made The Preachers could be contenders for the LA garage crown, as it stands these eight songs are a fitting testament to what could have been."(Shindig Magazine) -
