“What can be said or done about 2020? Here at Bachelor Records we’re sticking to what we know and diggin’ in, while making every effort to stop and smell the roses, play more records, and take a moment for hindsight – like the year’s numeric value suggests – with this trip down memory lane, on The Ar-Kaics’ Ar-Kives: Volume 1 LP. Sidelined from touring (they were scheduled for another European endeavor) and recording their third full length because of a worldwide pandemic you might have heard of, The Ar-Kaics are staying home and finally getting around to doing the laundry. It’s all here, and fresh as a summer daisy; all of the out-of-print, pre-Wick Records 45s, an early demo standout, and an inexplicably unreleased song from their self-titled album sessions are all on offer. Remastered loud for maximum rock’n’roll, but unlike the late and great rag of the same name, these songs are here to stay, in print! For those not yet indoctrinated, this fine selection of songs brings listeners up to speed on The Ar-Kaics’ off-brand of spot-on 60s garage punk originals, something they’ve been channeling back from the grave and making their own for the better part of the last decade. Now, after no less than ten releases, it’s high time to rollout a compilation album of the band’s singles, so you can enjoy these prime cuts without having to go to the record player and flip the platter or pull out the next single from the sleeve. In times like these it’s just nice to kick back and listen to these Virginia garage punk unknowns.” Elmar / Bachelor Records
