The Royal Flares - Time Is A Tale / Tell Me Something (7" vinyl single)
After a long player and a mini album on 12", the Royal Flares from Munich have finally arrived at the format that represents 60s garage punk more than any other: the vinyl single. The flares don't let themselves be shabby and hit a bang on each side. Guaranteed danceable shit for every garage party, whether in the living room or in the club.
A fast-paced psych-folk-rocker with a razor-sharp riff and cool melody, "Time Is A Tale" debunks time as the fairy tale told by the clocks, with a guitar break that gets the hands spinning in our heads and the soles on the dance floor.
“Tell me something” steers as an uncompromising ride through the one-way street, no right, no left, just full throttle straight ahead to the year 1966. How was that time again? Ah yes, exactly, she is a fairy tale.
The Royal Flares themselves replace the clock hands on the front cover of their new single. On the back they join, quite "royally", with King Ludwig II, the most psychedelic visionary of their hometown to date. Time is a tale.
After a longplayer and a mini-album on 12” the Royal Flares from Munich finally arrived at the format more representative of 60s garage punk than any other: the 45 single. The Royal Flares don't hesitate to put a grenade on each side. Guaranteed to catapult your feet on any garage dance floor, at it living room or night club.
“Time Is A Tale” is an up-tempo psych-folk-rocker with a razor-sharp riff and cool melody, unmasking time as a fairy tale told by clocks, with a guitar-break causing the clock hands to whirl in the head and the soles on the floor.
"Tell Me Something" uncompromisingly races through a one way street, no right, no left, just straight ahead full throttle into 1966. What again was time? Ah yes, right, a fairy tale.
The Royal Flares themselves replace the clock hands on the cover of their 45, and on the back cover, very “royal”, they join King Ludwig II, the hitherto most psychedelic visionary of their hometown. Time is a tale.
