Making up the four great bands of the 1966 pop-apocalypse were The Who, The Action, The Creation and finally The Attack. Four names that in their brevity summed up the instant flash of mod-pop appeal. They had more energy than an H-bomb after flash, and they hit the senses and the soul with a long awaited wake up call.
Led by ex Ready Steady Go dancer Richard Shirman, aka Jivin'K. Boots (!), and future Nice guitarist David O'List , the Attack recorded four singles for Decca, plus a number of unreleased tracks and a radio session; all included here.
A definitive collection, which includes such stand outs as - Try It "bugged out insanity,with sexual overtones blowing the Standells version into oblivion"; We Don't Know"a tight explosion of mod-soul" ; Anymore Than I Do, a freak beat classic! Plus of course their pre-Jeff Beck version of Hi Ho Silver Lining.
This gorgeous package by Phil Smee and with full involvement of Richard Shirman is a must for all Mod / Pop-Sike collectors.
Includes all four Decca singles and previously unreleased material.
