Endless Boogie - 'Long Island'

Countless glorious shut-eye air guitar moments that nod to the Groundhogs, Canned Heat, the Stones

‘Record-collection rock’ tends to carry certain negative connotations: perfunctory, mannered, among others. But Endless Boogie, a bunch of grizzled buzzards from New York, reclaim the zing in two ways. Paul Major, the Endless Boogie founder member who sings like an awesome cross between Captain Beefheart and Popeye, has bought and sold mega-rare psychedelic LPs for over three decades. ‘Long Island’, 79 minutes of utterly sublime thud-rock jams, is soaked in this knowledge. Aptly named, aye, but Endless Boogie justify indulgence via countless glorious shut-eye air guitar moments that nod to the Groundhogs, Canned Heat, the Stones at their tuffest… and a shelf of vinyl worth more than your life.
