The Sloths: Makin' Love - You Mean Everything (7inch, 45rpm, PS)
impossible to find garage slab, straight from the 'savage' side of the Sunset
Strip! Sundazed presents this reissue of one of the most positively deadly
garage obscurities of the mid-sixties. Backed by The Sloths’ Bo Diddley is a
Maniac-style wall of pounding sound, lead singer Hank Daniels Jr. III
transforms otherwise acceptable lyrics about hugging ‘n’ kissing into a raucous
& sultry performance for the ages. For anyone who dug Sundazed’s
Adrian Lloyd 'Lorna' screamfest, boys and girls, do we have a release for you!
More pounding drums can be found on the melodic, 12-string rockin’ B-side,
“You Mean Everything.” But to borrow from one of Alice Cooper’s favorite
quotes, we’re pretty sure this Sloths fall ’65 release drove a stake through
the heart of Sunset Strip folk-rock. Be sure not to miss the carnage!
