The Boomerangs - Beat Beat ( Baccarola)


"The Boomerangs - Beat Beat

THE BOOMERANGS are another mystery of Germany's Beat history. Like The Candidates, The Beatmixers and The Sound Riders, they recorded one of these -LPs - all called "Beat Beat Beat" . While the variety of their repertoire is reminiscent of the so-called Indo Bands (Dutch-Indonesian immigrants), which really ruled in the early 60s. A British group called Boomerangs recorded 2 singles for UK-Fontana in '64 and may well have toured here, but with Baccarola you can't even be sure that they didn't use a fantasy name to disguise the identity of a band with contractual obligations elsewhere. (The Beatmixers actually were Mike Rat & The Runaways.) On third listening, The Boomerangs' live recordings sound a lot like those of The Sound Riders. Guess we'll never know, but their version of Little Richard's "Girl Can't Help It" is a winner..." ~ Billy Bryan
