Here we have a collection of demos, rarities and general oddities from The Herms, a ramshackle bunch of lads that make the strangest of lo-fi garage pop with a surreal edge. I'm always amazed at how a lot of these garage rock/pop bands sound so old, like they've stepped into a time machine and recorded their album back in 1975, I guess The Herms' secret is them recording most of their songs on an old Tascam 8 track.

'Drop Out Vol 1' is the sound of exactly that, like you were standing in the bedroom with them, jangly mono guitars, Bontempi organ and old bar room piano all mixed up to make a drunken rock and roll with influences as diverse as Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Captain Beefheart, MC5 and even The Beatles, with The Herms only other official release being that of a CD a few years back on the Jackpine Social Club label this is great to hear them in their rawest form on vinyl, released by Castle Face Records including download.
