The story of the Syndicate runs along similar lines to countless other rock'n'roll bands in the mid-sixties. They got together to have fun, made some noise on the local teen scene, recorded a couple of singles, made a vain grasp for the brass ring, then vanished into thin air-all within the space of two magical years: 1965 and 1966. What makes the Syndicate special, though, is those two hard-to-find singles. 'My Baby's Barefoot' and 'The Egyptian Thing', both released in 1965 are two of the most savage, hot-wired blasts of Punk R&B mayhem ever etched into wax, while the flipside of 'The Egyptian Thing', 'She Haunts You' showed the group were equally adept at moody, minor-key material. The 'Egyptian Thing' album presents the bands four A and B-sides alongside four unreleased, same-calibre tracks from '65, which are kinda KINKS-inspired. The collection is rounded out by two creative tunes, taken from a 7-inch ('63) by the Ris-Kays, featuring The Syndicate's front man Bill Rash. An in-depth insert written by Ugly Things' Mike Stax with a cache of photos compiles the legacy of a band, whose 45s are among the top wanted items in their genre
