Painted Ship

I stumbled onto these guys a bit back while trying to track down a song sung by Peter Fonda (I’ll leave my 60’s actors turned Byrdsian musicians to the musical meandering of David Hemmings, thank you very much).  Anyways, I uncovered this Painted Ship song Frustration on some random 60’s Garage comp and what a killer track it is, definitely has a similar vibe to what bands such as the Ganglians and the Mantles mastered this year. Come to think of it, it may have appeared on a mid release Pebbles comp as well but as good as those are they can become a bit trying at times scouring for their best moments. Not to mention that I’m increasingly realizing that many songs can make more sense through the lens of influence upon current artists.

Check it out:

and the Hemmings and Fonda songs for good measure:

David Hemmings – Back Street Mirror LOVE this track, seems downright seasonal at the moment too. Also interesting to note is that the Byrds are actually his backing band on this track (and the rest of the album).

  1. That black and white photo looks like Pete Townshend of the Who playing drums while his bandmate, Who bass player, is standing in the background to the left.

  3. Painted Ship are great. I’ve never come across a whole set of their songs, besides 2 others (She Said Yes & Little White Lies) which are just as good!
