Product Description

Inspired by the best in 60s sounds (Mod, garage, popart, psychedelia freakbeat), The Aardvarks were formed in the mid-1980s in Ealing, West London, as part of the same scene which eventually reared Kula Shaker. For many years, they were one of the most popular bands on the Mod and 60s Revival circuit, issuing a string of acclaimed 45s on labels such as Screaming Apple and Detour. The Aardvarks' 12-year lifespan is remembered on this compilation, built around their 1995 album for Delerium, Bargain, while also offering an equal number of choice tracks from elsewhere. The 'Varks tasted brief fame in the 90s, appearing on the James Whale TV Show and even supporting Bonnie Tyler! The Aardvarks are playing some sporadic reunion shows in 2013 to support this release.

Out now on Cherry Red Records is The Aardvarks `Sinker, Line & Hook - The Anthology 1987 to 1999' album, and what a fine collection this is. Featuring the entire `Bargain' LP (originally released by Delerium in 1995) together with their two Screaming Apple released EPs, the final single on Detour plus various compilation releases, this is a comprehensive gathering of the works of one of the best bands of their time. And along with The Clique's (who's Paul Newman adds Hammond to some of the tracks on this album), this album provides a recorded legacy to be proud of (and to remind many of us of their great gigs from the late eighties and early nineties).

From the opening bars of the catchy `Bargain', this album grooves. This song moves effortlessly into the big `Cheyenne Woman' before we carry on to one of my favourite Aardvarks tracks, `The Office No.1' - great chord sequence, great lyrics. `Girl On A Bike' and `Fly My Plane' are just awesome with `Mr. Inertia' very Ray Davies/The Kinks at their vaudeville best circa 1967/68. Next up is one of the classics of a generation, the massive `Arthur C. Clarke' - quirky, yet incredibly radio friendly, this could and should have been a massive hit.

The Aardvarks demonstrate great musicianship and vocal ability throughout this anthology and it is great to see that the best known line-up is together again to support this release and will be playing on the Saturday night at the New Untouchables Le Beat Bespoke. If they'd stayed together the first time round (and had more luck with getting their recordings out) then they could have been huge.

Having the EP cuts on here gives alternate (earlier) recordings of some of the songs (`Arthur C. Clarke' & `Office No.

The Aardvarks (from Ealing, West London) were a much-loved and admired part of the Mod revival / 6T's 'scene' which flourished in various London clubs during the 1990's. Alongside the likes of The Clique, The Nerve, The Nuthins, The Mystreated and Knave they kept the flame burning for that classic 1960's Freakbeat / Pop Art / Garage sound, playing countless gigs and producing the classic 'Bargain' album for Delerium Records in 1995.

It's the entire content of said album that constitutes the first half of this new collection and it still smokes nearly 20 years on. I bought this on vinyl the week it was released and was blown away, marvelling at the quality of the material and their uncanny ability to evoke 1966 without ever resorting to plagiarism. Highlights include the effervescent psych-pop of 'Girl On A Bike', the inspired Creation-isms of 'Merry Go Round', the muscular, Who-tinted 'You're My Loving Way' and the poignant closer, 'Time To Fly'. All-in-all, it's difficult to think of many releases from the era that match up; it certainly knocks the entire Brit-Pop scene into a cocked hat!

Cherry Red have done a really great job on this reissue, with a slew of bonus tracks (mostly taken from singles and compilations) and a very nice booklet with great liner notes from Lenny Helsing of The Thanes and Andy Morten of The Nerve / Bronco Bullfrog. Of particular interest among the bonus cuts is the Garage cracker 'Drive Me Wild' and 'In The Crowd', their highly inventive instrumental reworking of The Jam classic. There's also the excellent swansong 45 'Buttermilk Boy', which channels early Humble Pie to great effect, pointing to a possible new direction which never came to fruition as the band called it a day in 1999.

As anyone who saw them live can testify The Aardvarks were a class act. And this compilation, which round ups long lost singles, demos and compilation tracks along side their stunning 90s albums Bargain, is a must for anyone who loves mid 60s Who, The Creation,The Kinks and Tomorrow. They were one of the few bands from the era who could pull of the most difficult of tricks of sounding authentic, yet taking those glorious 60s influences and creating something new from them. Highlights for me are the crunchy mod pop of Fifty Hertz Man, the bizarre instrumental re-working of The Jam's In The Crowd, and their own mini pop opera Bad Clothes.
