The Satelliters

Where Do We Go?

Enthralled by the mid-‘60s, fuzztone-induced garage-rock sound unearthed on countless compilations, Germany’s prolific punk-stompers the Satelliters have continued to beat a path to the past since their formation in 1993. On their latest album, Where Do We Go, recorded at Darmstadt’s IronBar studios, this five-piece retro outfit give rise to the hope that there will always be an audience for well-played, wildly oscillating garage-psych mayhem (“Hide Your Time”) with stabs of staccato punk guitar (“For You”) and a fine dose of swirling folk-rock psychedelia (“Something”). Standouts, however, are supplied by a trio of covers including a fiery version of the Shadows of Knight’s “I’ll Make You Sorry” and album closer, “No Good Without You Baby”, a R&B wailer from the long-forgotten British band the Birds that adds a touch of raw ‘60s teen spirit lacking on the fervent yet polished originals.
