First reissue of rare cassette-only underground neo-psychedelic punk steeped in 'Pebbles'-era rock, from this Milwaukee band which featured Dan Mullin (Plasticland) on guitar and the talents - songwriting and otherwise - of iconic underground maven Tess (James Tessier). 'I Want Speed' shows The SilverBeats' affinity to West Coast psychedelia. And it's no coincidence that they cover the Human Expression's 'Calm Me Down,' rich with harmony vocal, and The Pretty Things' 'Midnight to Six (Man),' replacing the original's rough R'n'B-edge with a slight psychedelic tinge - a real showpiece for drummer Mike Hughes. Another killer is 'Over And Over,' penned by Tess (like all the other originals on this album). It layers beautiful, trippy guitar, a catchy vocal melody, lots of echo, strange effects, and weird sounds before it closes, and we move on to the jolly, jumping 'Love Comes Knockin.' Comes with an 8-page booklet featuring a description by journalist David Luhrssen of the Milwaukee underground music scene which produced Plasticland, Daszu, the band Ír, and the Violent Femmes, among others. Lion exclusive of 150 hand-numbered copies on transparent coke clear vinyl. Comes with an 8-page booklet featuring an overview of the Milwaukee underground music scene.
