Remastered From The Original Analog Tapes!
Featuring The Hit Single "Talk Talk"!
The debut album from The Music Machine was released December 31, 1966, just months after their hit single "Talk Talk" had charged to number 15 on the national charts. "(Turn On) The Music Machine" contains "Cherry Cherry" written by Neil Diamond and "Taxman" written by George Harrison.
"'It speaks of a timeless problem of teenage misunderstanding': That is how singer-guitarist-songwriter Sean Bonniwell of the Music Machine described the Los Angeles band's 1966 single 'Talk Talk'. It was a pith worthy of the record itself, 1:57 of proto-punk severity that peaked at Number 15 in Billboard and went even higher in some markets, going Top Ten in L.A. In 'Talk Talk,' Bonniwell and his original lineup of the Music Machine lead guitarist Mark Landon, organist Doug Rhodes, bassist Keith Olsen and drummer Ron Edgar created a breathlessly compact garage rock: hog-snort guitar distortion, machine-gun drumming and growling paranoid despair, shaved and hardened with geometric precision."
