Music Box 23rd March 2024

We start with Alex E.T. who hails from Los Angeles, and this is Hollow Man, from the LP The Ashes (Ghost Tower Records 2021)  Buy here
The Grabbeltons were a Dutch/Belgian group sometimes called De Grabbeltons that performed at almost every ball in the 1970s, especially in the Waasland and surrounding areas. Here's single Make Love, the B-side to Inflation (Monopole 7” 1975).
Dotti(e) Holmberg was a player in the sunshine pop movement of the 1960s, singing backup on songs by Tommy Roe, Bobby Jameson, and others, along with recording several sweetly optimistic and bright songs of her own with ex-bandmate and sunshine pop figurehead Curt Boettcher. This is the track I Sing My Song. Due to music industry shenanigans none of her original recordings were released in her 60s heyday. They were collected on the archive compilation Sometimes Happy Times (Sundazed CD 2002).
Message were a Coldwave band from Brive, France. They were active from 1984-1990, and only released one record, single  Dernière Nuit (Krezimikroïd 7” 1988). Here’s the B-side, The Crazy Garden.
We conclude with a couple of classics from 60s U.S. pop masters The Beach Boys. First, Good Vibrations (Capitol 7” 1966), then we conclude with California Girls (Capitol 7” 1965). Until next week …
