This rare chunk of garage punk was one of only a three tracks to be released by The Bugs; a firey garage quartet from Marlborough, Massachusetts! The thing that really intrigues here, however, is how on earth did one of their singles end up as the B-side to Albert Desalvo’s Strangler In The Night (a song featuring the words of the alleged Boston Strangler, Albert DeSalvo – which, quite randomly, I’ve covered here!!!).
Slide was released as the B-side to The Bug’s 1966 Pretty Girl but, unlike more standard psych-rock flipside, is a lot more ballsy with its frayed bluesy edges and fiercely raw sound. Check it out above.
