Influential all-women Garage band the Pleasure Seekers – “Never Thought You’d Leave Me”

Back in the sixties, there was a sub-culture of several garage band in Detroit. One of these bands were the Pleasure Seekers, an all-women band containing sister  Suzi Quatro and Patti Quatro, Nancy Ball, Mary Lou Ball, and Diane Baker.

First Pleasure Seekers Album in 1965

The Pleasure Seekers released their first record in 1965, when Suzi Quatro and her sister Patti Quatro were 15 and 17 years old, respectively, on the Hideout label. Both sides of their first single – “Never Thought You’d Leave Me” b/w “What a Way to Die” – have some prominence;

“Never Thought You’d Leave Me” is really a great song. You’ve got to dig the surf and alternative grooves these girls deliver. Especially the fact these girls were only fifteen and seventeen years old really amazes me. The red thread in this song is the harmonic guitar lick which keeps returning throughout the song.

SEE: Kurt Vile’s Pretty Pimpin’ Video from Believe I’m Goin’ Down

Alternative Folk musician Kurt Vile has released a whole lot of songs in the past ten years.  His latest album Believe I’m Goin Down is like the rest of his repertoire a pleasant 12-song art piece containing hyponotic guitar licks and laid back vocal tracks. The former War on Drugs guitarist is  set to tour around Europe and the US this summer.

Belive I’m Goin’ Down – Pretty Pimpin

Kurt Vile I’m Goin Down… is his sixth studio album which was released on September 25, 2015 on Matador Records.  

The opening song “Pretty Pimpin”  symbolises  the unknown feeling of being at a certain point in life when everything doesn’t play like you wanted it to. Add to that some amazing hypnotic, head spinning guitar riffs and Rhythm vocals. this song is a slowtrain which easily could be on repeat for hours.

All he ever wanted was to be someone in life that was just like
All I want is to just have fun, live my life like a son of a gun
I could be one thousand miles away but still mean what I say

Kurt Vile – I’m An Outlaw and  Dust Bunnies

Other Songs on Believe I’m Goin Down are  also worth listening. “I’m An Outlaw” ,  “Dust Bunnies” all feature some southern grooves.  “Lost In My Head There” is in my opinion the most creative song on this album containing abstract grooves and really, really laid back vocals.

Don’t Forget to watch the  Video of ‘”Pretty Pimpin”  which is worth watching. Directed by Daniel Henry,
