The Omega Men – The Spy – Fi Sounds of
Try combining Booker T. & the MG's, The Ventures, Love (they cover "She Comes in Colors" very well) and The Prisoners (obscure but great garage band from England) and you have The Omega Men sound. "The Spy Fi Sounds.." is great garage rock n roll that's 60's based, but produced in modern yet not too polished fashion. The band performs 15 tracks- 11 originals and 4 covers (including an excellent version of "Beat Girl" by The John Barry 7). Their original material rocks and swings (as in the swingin' A Go-Go 60's) with soul (very good Hammond organ by Susan Mackey), jangle-full guitars (by Rhythm guitarist Mark Ebeling)and raspy-raw vocals (by singer/guitarist Jonathan Sipes).Check out the surfy "Theme from XKE", the cool mod-fest that is "My favorite Dean Martian" and the growling vocal number, "Mania for Blondes"! “The Spy Fi Sounds of The Omega Men" is the one, baby!
