A mind-blowing garage-punk classic!

180-gram vinyl mono LP restored!

Deluxe reissue of 1965 Aussie Garage rarity with bonus 7-inch EP 

The 1965 self-titled debut of Australia's Missing Links took the U.K. R&B combo model and positively drenched it in attitude and feedback. This slice of vigourous vinyl became one of the most prized acquisitions for garage punk fans the world over, with each successive wave of 'Down Under' musical malcontents spreading its legend.

Whatever it is that puts the raw in Antipodean rawk, it's been there from the beginning. For proof, check the wild, outrageous sounds of the Missing Links. Formed in Sydney in 1964, a series of personnel changes eventually replaced all original members, leaving vocalist Andy Anderson, guitarist Doug Ford, drummer Baden Hutchens, bassist Ian Thomas and Chris Gray on keyboards.  It was this lineup that recorded the band's 1965 debut album, The Missing Links. An instant garage punk classic, the album made contemporaries like the Troggs and the Who appear tame by comparison. The sonic guitar meltdown at the end of "You're Driving Me Insane" presages Jimmy Page's Zeppelin liftoff by a full three years while "Wild About You" defies description, except to say it still sounds shocking nearly 50 years on.

What more could you want? Well, how about the IMPOSSIBLY rare EP, The Links Unchained, featuring four more cuts of mid-'60s madness!?! For a limited time, Sundazed is offering both of these audacious aural artifacts in one convenient package!
