IDES OF MARCH - I'LL KEEP SEARCHING

Several years before they went brassy and added a horn section, Chicago's Ides Of March released a string of excellent, jangly garage rock singles for Parrot and Kapp Records that went nowhere (other than local AM radio success). This track shows a fantastic British Invasion influence and was written by a songwriter (Jeff Milne) who started a band called Factory around 1969.

This particular side (their debut release) shows off their British Invasion influences in full effect, and is a very well-written track from the band, and showcases their excellent harmony work and a drop dead infectious guitar riff. Technically, this is the b-side but I find it much stronger than the flip side ("You Wouldn't Listen").

from 1966...

Hi Derek. Not sure if it's just me but in your recent posts I've not been able to see the player/download widget. I'm having no problems with other sites. Any ideas?

Cheers
