Nineties hell-raising rock 'n' rollers Thee Hypnotics present Righteously Recharged, a colored 4LP anthology with rare and unreleased material including Come Down Heavy (1990 debut album), Soul Glitter & Sin (1991), The Very Crystal Speed Machine (1994 – previously unreleased in UK) and In A Trance: Thee Early Daze 86-89 (Demos and Peel Sessions). The set also contains in-depth liner notes by journalist Julian Marszalek, featuring interviews with the band and a savvy look at the band's rip-roaring career, featuring outrageous tales of rock'n'roll excess and exhilaration.
Taking their cues from the Detroit militancy of The MC5, the corrupting output of The Stooges and the gospel according to The Cramps, Thee Hypnotics' devastating brand of rock 'n' roll was propelled by near punishing decibel levels and a fervor bordering on the evangelical. Blazing a devastating trail of high-octane thrills and annihilation, Thee Hypnotics occupied a bizarre hinterland that sat somewhere between the British neo-psychedelic scene of the late-80s and the detonation of garage-influenced rock from the Pacific northwest of the early-90s. Little wonder that a band that shone so bright would burn out before the end of the century.
