So Far Out So Good - Dee Rangers (Sweden)


Label:White Jazz Records
Released:2002
Highlights:Total Despair
Gotta Move
Out Of Orbit
Ultimate Expansion
I Can't Understand
Rating:8/10


I donít know much about the Dee Rangers except that theyíre from Sweden and they sound a lot like The Fleshtones (who are good but not one of my favourite bands so I wonít raving about this album as much as some others Iím sure) Anyway, So Far Out, So Good! is their debut album and it is a solid effort of soulful garage rock. The songs are catchy, well played and well recorded without being too slick. They might have benefited from a little more variety but thatís probably missing the point. I donít know what it is about Scandinavia (in particular Sweden) but they seem to be going through a real garage renaissance at the moment with the likes of The Hives, Strollers, Maggots, Flaming Sideburns, Royal Beat Conspiracy to name but a few. You can Dee Rangers to that list.
