Sixties punk, garage, moody sounds and proto- hard- rock of the highest order! Complete recordings (1966- 1972) of this legendary band from Michigan, including their three killer 45s plus unreleased recordings and alternate takes. Master tape sound, insert with photos and liner notes. The Unrelated Segments created some of the most celebrated garage- punk anthems of all time. Tracks like ”Cry, Cry, Cry” with its teenage- angst vocals and out of control fuzztone guitar break, ”The Story Of My Life” with that bizarre and ultra- punk bass line or the moody- punker ”It’s gonna rain” have been included on countless garage comps (Back From The Grave, Acid Dreams, Nuggets, etc) and have been covered by numerous bands who worship them as 60s punk Gods. Sadly, the band never got the chance to record a full album. After three outstanding 45s, they recorded a projected fourth single that never saw the light of day, just when the band had changed its name to U.S and had started playing in a heavier vein, similar to early MC5. Soon after, the band split up and some of their members formed psych- rock band Lost Nation. On this collection, along with their official 45s and alternate takes / rehearsals, you’ll find the unreleased 45 from 1969 plus some demos recorded by an unnamed post- Unrelated Segments / Lost Nation band in 1972. An amazing find which shows the band playing pure Detroit high- energy hard rock!
