Dear friends hi,
For today I have for you one of the wildest covers of the Toggs classic hit Wild Thing. I believe thtat this version is one of the rawest I ever heard.
This cover is from The We Five from 1966 hailing from Athens, Greece.
This song was recorded in a theatre where the We Five performed live with audience for a radio show. So practically this is almost a live appearance showing the real capablities of the the "first Greek Super Group". This version has a very garage feeeling with snotty raw vocals , organ anf fuzzy guitars.
We Five are alleged to be the first super group in the history of Greek Rock-Pop as they featured talented musicians who used to perform at the most popular Athenian Groups like The Idols, The Minis, The Juniors, & The Stormies. In addition members of the We Five later followed a succefull carreer in Europe with most famous Demis Roussos. We Five had a short lived carreer from 1966 to 1967
Their members were during 1966-1967:
Demis Roussos(vocals, bass, 1966-67)
Alekos Karakantas (guitar)
Spyros Metaxas(guitar, 1966-67)
Lakis Vlavianos (organ)
Makis Saliaris (drums)
Giorgos Petridis (vocals, bass, 1967)
Dimitris Katakouzinos (guitar, 1967)
