The story of this music starts, as you likely already know, in your backyard with sparkly instrumental combos like the Ventures & Shadows, but it ends out on the other side of the globe with. This is the story of musical borrowing: Peruvian cumbia, Iranian twist records, Polish beat girls, Indonesian hard rock, flashy soundtracks that are way beyond Bollywood- they're all here. And just as the twang-addled, ye-ye mad, go-go kids in these bands once infused their local styles with the laquered cool of the big, bad, far-off West, psychedelia geeks and beats dudes are stretching their own boundaries to hear it today. Obscure, impossible-to-find baubles that were left behind by a foolhardy world indifferent to their vivid allure.
