Do What Thou Wilt



Do What Thou Wilt: “The Satanic Rites of British Rock Delivered From Acetates and Rare Pressings 1970 -1974”

From Rabelais, via AC and the run out grooves of Led Zep III, I’ll bring you news of the release of an excellent compilation of 70s obscurities that really knocks the socks off most of the hippy/prog driven comps which mainly clog the avenues of 70s rock archivism. This comp totally oozes attitude with some major finds to be found within. The greasy lanky haired Gentleman behind Do What Thou Wilt has unearthed some major gems. The recordings are often very primitive as apart from 2 or 3 tracks which were released on private pressings, all the remainder did not get further than acetate stage, making this LP the only way to hear these tracks AND IT’S A VINYL ONLY RELEASE!!!!


All 14 tracks have something going for them, but it’s the harder hitting ones which forge a closer link between Freakbeat, Hard Glam, Heavy Bonehead and Deviant /Pink Fairies Proto Punk which makes this baby really stand out from the crowd.

Hear edits of tracks by Shado, Grind and Tonge.



You can contact the Gentleman in question via email. android.x@hotmail.com
He is  a trusted source and highly rated ebay seller, so no worries there. It ‘s a limited edition of 200 with hand painted sleeves and liner notes which include all the information that has been uncovered

Nice! The Tonge song on this LP later became "When They Take Me Away" on a Depressions demo.

So is it the same band? What's the linkage?

Dave Barnard and Eric Wright from the D.P.'s were in Tonge, and Ozzie Garvey later. There was short spell as Jukebox before they became The Depressions in early '77. "Get Out Of This Town" was in Tonge's live set circa 1975.

Robin, what's this guys ebay tag? If he's selling this on there i'd like to order it since he's not answering any emails.
Very frustrating

Hi
I think it's rockdentist or similar, but he hasn't been selling it on ebay as far as I know...

Well, Android responded to my emails when I asked about ordering a copy, said he had a couple of left at a slightly higher price, then when I sent my money, not only did I not receive a record, but my emails went ignored. It's been two months; I'm in Europe, so it's not even overseas mail we're talking about. Not holding my breath. Dishonest individual.

Hi Piotr
I saw Justin (Android X) this morning at the Brighton record fair. He hadn't been checkin gthat email address for a while. He assured he would sort it all out

We finally got in touch and Justin made good and made sure I got an LP in the end, and was very cool about it. It's a great release, too!
