Kim Fowley - Impossible But True: The Kim Fowley Story
A compilation of some of the finest solo material from the legendary producer, whose more popular for his antics and producing The Raincoats than for his own music. Kind of a shame, considering he recorded some of the most endearing garage psych of the 60s.
Painstakingly assembled with Kim's full co-operation, Impossible But True features titles spanning 1960-69, many of which appear on CD for the first time, including gems such as The Comedown Song by Spider (actually P J Proby's hairdresser - "he wasn't gay" says Kim); Reelin' Feelin' Squealin' by the Soft Machine , (the B-side of their first ultra-rare 45), To Die Alone , a US garage band classic by the Bush (some of whom joined the legendary Misunderstood) and Fowley solo classics such as The Trip , and Animal Man . Also making its CD debut is Pink Dominos by the Crescents , a Hot 100 hit from 1963. Fowley describes this as "the last of the surf instrumental hits. It was recorded late at night in a shoe store out in Oxnard, California and features an Asian female guitar teacher and some of her teenage pupils!
