"A Long Play With..." is the fab new release by THE FRANTIC V, the ultra hip garage kings of Greece, which also marks their 10th year anniversary in the garagedom! After numerous singles on various labels (from Australia to United Kingdom) plus a 10" mini album on the Italian Misty Lane Records, this is their first and brand new album!

Expect nothing less than the best and most swinging 60's garage "shakers" to be heard nowadays. Swirling Farfisa organ, snotty vocals and jangles with tambourines is their trademark sound and this time they deliver another healthy dose for all of you garage hipsters!

"Room 409" is the opening track and the party begins with this ultra-cool swinging instrumental with lots of surf references! Next to it, a series of tunes such as "She Lied", "Close Your Eyes", "I'm Asking Why" and "Good Lovin'" is part of the same swinging movie "soundtrack"! Both tracks "Girl Don't Play (With Me)" and "You're Gonna Be Mine" come from the band's early days and luckily we have the opportunity to enjoy them on vinyl! "Quinta" is a sax-orgasmic drenched mid-tempo instrumental, the most suitable titles track of a new porn movie!!! As far as "Hang Up" of the fabulous Wailers is concerned, it is about a killer low tempo 60's punk cover-version that will surely satisfy all the beatniks around! Last but not least, "It's Been So Long" is a folk punk gem that recalls all those forgotten teenagers of The New England scene back in the 60's as well as the ballads of the Swedish garage scene of the 80's/90's!

Their first "Long Play" is by far their best effort and destined to be a timeless classic!!!
