Mike Rep and the Quotas “Rocket to Nowhere” b/w “Quasar”

(Mighty Mouth) This is a pretty legendary single being reissued: DIY superhero Rep’s 1975 (though supposedly it was not distributed til 1978 when Bomp got their hands on some copies) debut was a garage trash meets stoner metal meets bedroom pop meets outsider weirdo meets Detroit gutter rock HIT on one side, with a flipside that’s just ambient stereo-headphone phasing space noises…in mono! Though the record (with original sleeve, insert and label reproduced faithfully) says 33 1/3 rpm, it’s supposed to be played at 45, but if you play the ambient side at 33 1/3 you get extra minutes of confusion!
