Missus Beastly, Germany *** REISSUED ***



Missus Beastly - Dr. Aftershave and the Mixed Pickles. 1976 April.
Missus Beastly - Spaceguerilla. 1978 Schneeball.

*** Dr. Aftershave and the Mixed Pickles reissued by Garden of Delights in June 2011.
*** Spaceguerilla reissued by Garden of Delights in Dec 2015.

I've moved the reviews of other Missus Beastly albums to the UMR blog.

"Spaceguerilla" is more a return to the style of the self-titled 1974 album, with long instrumental passages of flute, sax and especially piano. The album is high spirited and melodic - and they've toned down some of the funky chicken parts that were all the rage in Europe at that time. According to the liner notes of the 1974 Misses Beastly album, Garden of Delights states that the German label Funfundvierzig were to reissue both of these albums imminently. However, it appears that label has since gone inactive, and so these two remain sadly unissued. Hopefully GoD picks up these titles, and many more from the great Schneeball label.

Priority: 2

note: There's also the two "illegal" Missus Beastly albums, that followed the 1969 release. They are much lesser efforts, pretty much typical blues rock, with mediocre sound quality. It would be interesting to see if that group had more interesting material in the vaults. They probably should rename the band. For those that are curious, the unauthorized titles are:

Volksmusik (1972)

Super Rock Made in Germany: Im Garten des Schweigens (1973) Half the album is performed by a group known as Weramean.

Good catch! And I know that's pretty new, as I looked at their Coming Soon list about a week ago. Thanks Anon for letting me know!
