Each Monday we'll bring you playlists, mix-tapes and links to some of the weirdest music to be found anywhere. From vintage garage, rockabilly, trash, lounge, surf and hot-rod tunes, to whacked out novelty songs, weird rarities, radio inserts, trailers. An aural buffet of sound bites to wet anyone's appetite for the weird.
The Splatter Platters Mix-Tape takes you on a car crash journey through the golden age of teen tragedy songs, during the mid-50s to mid-60s. High-lights include Nervous Norvus - Transfusion (1956), originally banned, it uses the same stock car crash sound effect the can be heard on both Jan & Dean's - Dead Man's Curve (1964) and Leader Of The Pack (1964) by The Shangri-Las. (Both also on the mix-tape.)
Also included is the wonderfully wacky little known parody song I Want My Baby Back (1965) by Jimmy Cross. Voted one of the worst records of all time in 1978. Quite possibly the final nail in the coffin of the teen tragedy genre.
