Hands down — Bristol High School in Bristol, R.I., gets the award for the coolest Class of 1966 in the entire state of Rhode Island. The student body yielded not only Ron Medeiros and the Night Rockers, but also the band responsible for this long-forgotten, two-sided scorcher of a disc: The Hot Beats. No lightweight ballad flipside here, folks … the Hot Beats come out swinging with a Kinks-riffed girl putdown complete with blistering guitar solo, backed with a grungy “Indian-beat” instro. Yeeeoooowww!
Listed as one of the MOST LEGENDARY COLLECTABLE U.S. 60’s GARAGE 45’s of all time! So rare that very little information is available about these cats anywhere on the internets! Mid-60s PRIMORDIAL ROCK! The A-Side of this incredible rarity is a rough and rockin’ Garage original in the style of early Kinks with GREAT put-down lyrics!: “you don’t think like me, you don’t think like me, you want to settle down, I want to run around. Come on listen you, you and me are through…one girl’s not enough, even if she’s tough…don’t try to tie me down…waaaaaughggh! you are in the past, our love didn’t last…now you know that I, like to see girls cry”. The B-Side “Injun” is a great primal instrumental thumper.
