The Wooden Spoon

Bit rushed for time so not much blather from me tonight- Glasgow’s top 60s mod beat band The Poets, with the a-side from their final release. The b-side was a stab at psychedelia, this song Wooden Spoon is what’s become known as freakbeat.

The Poets ‘Baby Don’t You Do It’

Bagging Area hasn’t featured anything from the garage for a while so here is a great slice of 60s beat boom pop, rough edged and pumped up, with thumping drums, snarly guitars and an impassioned vocal, from ‘Scotland’s Number 1 Group’. They only recorded 6 singles, including this b-side, and the equally great a-sides Now We’re Thru and That’s The Way It’s Got To Be.
