THE GOLDEN CUPS - THIS BAD GIRL
First off, I would like to say how my heart is with the good people of Japan and their families around the world. This is my tribute and a tiny little way of sending some good vibes.
The Golden Cups were purveyors of some of the finest and wildest garage rock during the so-called "group sound" movement in mid 60s Japan. Guitarist Eddie Ban brought a fuzzbox back from the US and he uses it to great effect here. Influence from the Yardbirds is especially felt on this cut, with the wild, driving rave-up style bass and drums.
