The Vettes: Rev-Up (LP)
Originally issued in January 1964...Rev-Up is waxed wildly by genre-legends such as Steve Douglas, Bruce Johnston, Jerry Cole & other studio king-pins including Hal Blaine, Glen Campbell, Tommy Tedesco, Leon Russell, and more - a Wrecking Crew who's who!
Appearing here in the valued mono mix-copies routinely sell for hundreds of dollars - Rev-Up is a gasser of a record, with Johnston hot off his recent hit with "Hey Little Cobra," ready to rumble with the cream of the hot rod club. Tracks from this album also appeared briefly on another '60s car-themed collection, but this is the premier set of mixes and tracks for this set of sessions, featuring the lone single issued in '63 as the Vettes, "Little Ford Ragtop" backed with "Happy Hodaddy (With Ragtop Caddy)."
Modern Harmonic proudly presents Rev-Up, with restored artwork, and pressed onto wiper fluid blue vinyl! This little deuce is guaranteed to leave skid marks!!!

The Vettes are actually a family band, but don't be fooled: they don't dance and their father didn't lock them up with the instruments as children in the attic. "To fully understand the concept, one must first reject the preconceived notions of all the stereotypes of real life and fictitious family bands that we all know and hate," says Rachel Vette, lead singer and sister. Rachel, Todd, Chad, Brian and Mitch Vette, together known as The Vettes, are all siblings, although Mitch was "adopted" as an honorary brother in the family in 2005, a few months after joining the band; they began performing together as teenagers and in the early 1920s, as each sibling was individually enlightened with a passion for music in the same year. With influences like Aha, Flock of Seagulls, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Oasis and Elastica, The Vettes is the first New Wave/Alternative/Rock outfit created in the 80s. Since 2005 The Vettes have shaped the scene of their hometown New Orleans, La and the USA and have released countless untitled demo CDs before officially releasing their TV EP in 2008 and a full-length album PLASTICVILLE in 2010. Their next release is planned shortly.
