THE HORDE “Press Buttons Firmly”


1 in stock


thehordeTHE HORDE “Press Buttons Firmly”

rarest 60s Garage Album by North Carolina students from early 1967
– great LP sized full glossy Inlay w/pic and liners
– 300 copy repress with 3 different handmade, lavish front covers of 100 copies each
– even too rare for Pokora but finally received a 6-star rarity scale at his 7001 book

LP contains a blend of exciting originals and well chosen, inspired covers, played in a raw, crude and frantic style. If ever it were true that the over-used assertion that a band’s cover versions measured up to the originals, then it is true of The Horde. Why? These five 19-20 year old students from all over the United States did not only blaze a trail for 60s rock in then conservative North Carolina, they also had a general attitude that finds its origins in the young people’s mindset of the mid-sixties.
This is one of the sharpest local ‘60s garage albums and you are exhorted to PRESS BUTTONS FIRMLY
