GIVE US THIS DAY OUR DAILY FLASH

Seattle: 1965. In the awakening months of the psychedelic era, with a new culture on the move, the spirit of music began to seriously change. Seattle was eager to define itself as a place where this process could unfold. A revolution was in the air and The Daily Flash, with an entirely new look on music took the city by storm.

Originating from the seminal music city Seattle, the Daily Flash are a real gemstone in the genre of original West Coast psychedelic music. In essence we are talking about a relatively obscure group that provided massive inspiration for a new music generation in the Pacific Northwest. Somehow (and that's the mystery) they kept a tantalizing one-step away from national recognition, eventually disappearing from sight. Today, they have re-emerged fortunately. They are true to their original ideals, yet playing music in new and revitalised forms.

THE DAILY FLASH AND BODINE

Preparations are underway for a new CD release of original music from The Daily Flash, a bonus re-release that contains recordings recovered from the famous Gold Star studios in Hollywood. Full information on “I FLASH DAILY” is coming soon.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Luminous Music further anticipates an additional Daily Flash release, forthcoming in ”THE BODINE YEARS.” Available later in the year.

WHAT OTHERS SAY:

The Guardian - 13 May 2012

"Today, the shambolic brilliance of the Daily Flash's Jack of Diamonds is more listenable and less dated than much of what their more celebrated peers produced. The opening wall of noise during which the drummer seems to be warming up; the bass playing the same insistent riff throughout; the urgent harmonica and jagged guitar; the production that suggests it really was recorded in someone's garage – all contribute to a great record. It finishes as it begins and you have heard the definitive garage punk single." . . . . . more.    David Marsh


The Daily Flash
“...these are your ancestors, who suffered through innumerable sock hops at American Legion halls so you can be the little Antichrists you are today."
Village Voice 1992 -- R.O.C.K. in the USA by Luc Sante

The Daily Flash Jack Of Diamonds
“Trashy, raw, but with its own strange sort of nobility.”

Jack Of Diamonds 
"This is compiled on one of the Highs In the Mid Sixties comps that I don't own, but boy had I been missing out before I found this 45!!! This is an absolutely blinding slice of manic harmonica driven, if you can imagine it, psych/r&b. It could be described better I'm sure, but one thing's certain, it must be heard to believe. They were from Seattle, by the way.”

The Daily Flash "Jack of Diamonds" --
Wow, the feedback here is highly advanced for 1966. I wonder if the Who/Yardbirds/Hendrix copped a bit of this? I bet Hendrix did, since he's from the Northwest, too.”
