THE THANES – \”Don\’t Change Your Mind\” / \”What You Can\’t Mend\” (Hidden Volume HV0043) December 2017

The new single by The Thanes arrived today also. Amazing to think that they\’ve been releasing records for 30+ years. The top side \”Don\’t Change Your Mind\” is a bit of departure in sound for them with heavy use of hammond organ mixed with fuzz. Reminds me of early Small Faces.

The other side \”What You Can\’t Mend\” is thee more familiar teenbeat Thanes sound, dig those scattergun drums, compact organ and of course Lenny\’s vocal delivery which is pretty damned fucking great. The revenge put down lyrics are particularly inspiring and worthy of any 60s punk lament. 

\”Stood on the ledge, and now you\’re gone\”
