When it seems, that nothing else could be discovered in the garage/psych scene always something interesting pops out. Like ‘EVOL’ last year for example, or perhaps 'Nimbus’, but today I’m presenting you '21st Century Sound’. Roger Maglio at Gear Fab has just released the tapes on the CD and there’s also going to be a vinyl version in the near future.

There are absolutely no names mentioned on the album. The only thing we know is that one of the members was Jackie, because when they play “Fire” you can hear words “Let Jackie take over”. Everything else is unknown. The LP was recorded around mid 1969. On the recordings there was mostly non original material, but they played in that typical amateurish magical 60’s way if you know what I mean, except for the song “For The Rest Of My Life”, which was their song.

The release includes two bonus tracks from their 45, released on 'Cave Records’. Both songs on 45 are originals. The album was recorded at Damon Studios in Kansas City, Missouri and the cover photo was taken at nearby Volker Fountain. So we should start searching for the members around this area. The cover songs actually sound very nice with great 60’s spirit. I can only wish to talk to the members in the near future. The album is recommended to any psych/garage fans….by psychedelic baby….~



Mega-Rare Garage LP from an unknown group from Missouri. From 1968, these guys did cover versions of the songs of their day even better than the original artists with a great fuzz garage sound! It is a true shame we do not the names of these musicians for the album provides us no credits whatsoever to these truly talented guys. ..~

"After years of searching, we have finally discovered a copy of this mega-rare garage LP from an unknown group from Missouri.

It is a true shame we do not know the names of these musicians, as the album provides us with no credits whatsoever to these truly talented guys. Mini-LP cardboard sleeve format. Also includes their ultra-rare 45 tracks."...~

The 21st Century Sound Movement (with such a pretentious, futuristic name!) Was formed in 1968 in Kansas City (Missouri) and at first played garage rock. It's natural (and glory to Rock!) That the musicians did not try to play anything such fantastic from the music of the future (they would have known what would be carried from the stage in the 21st century ...), but mainly performed the then hits and compositions of their loved ones British artists, often interpreting them so skillfully that they sounded better than the originals. The band consisted of the brothers Terry (bass guitar) and Jack (solo guitar) Viles, Ray Bahr (rhythm guitar) and the very boy Bill O'Malley (percussion). I understood that at first there was another drummer in the team, but the kid once asked the musicians to sit down for the drum set and sobac so that he was immediately taken to the collective, and his predecessor was asked to find another place. The team, by the way, was firstly called something else and became The 21st Century Sound Movement only after several concert performances, victories in the "group battles" and friendly drinking.
 After earning a little money, the guys went to the studio "Damon" and recorded a longplay, filling it with songs from their usual repertoire. After they captured themselves in the photo for the cover (a picture was taken at the Nelson-Atkins Museum), the group suddenly left Jack Viles. In his place had to take another musician. They became Jerry Lemberger. The next studio session was held in 1970, this time in the studio "Cavern". The guys recorded songs for the sorrel "Feelin 'Down / First Day" and at the same time decided to shorten their name to 21st Century Sound. But in 1971, a tragedy occurred: the baby Billy hit the car and the poor man lay in a coma for a month ... I do not know how it all ended for him, but apparently he could not perform more. The group broke up. Nobody has seriously dealt with music any more, 

In 2012, the label "Gear Fab Records" re-released the album, recorded in 1968 (6 stars in the catalog of rarities of Hans Pocora), accompanied by the following phrase: "Finally, after years of searching, we have finally discovered a copy of this Mega -Rare Garage LP from an unknown group from Missouri From 1968, these guys did their best songs with their great fuzz garage sound! Also includes their ultra-rare 45 tracks! "...~
