Ty Wagner cut his first single, "I'm A No-Count" in late 1965 at Gold Star Studios in Hollywood. The record was not a hit, but Ty's gloriously snarling vocal and the songs rebellious lyrics assured that decades later it would become a garage-punk anthem: "Ain't had a haircut in four years / You can't even see my ears." His 1966 single, "Slander," also found a new generation of fans via its appearance on Back from the Grave. Those two sought-after singles were Ty Wagner's only musical legacy-until now. UT Records is proud to present two previously unreleased Ty Wagner tracks recorded in 1967. "Misery Train," a dark and moody thriller with a killer string-bending guitar riff-imagine the Seeds jamming with Link Wray. The flipside, "Soul Exercise," is a sexy, hard-grooved dance number with a dynamic lead vocal and lots of atmospheric percussion-destined to full the floor at hip happenings from this point forth. Limited to just 800 copies, "Misery Train" b/w "Soul Exercise" comes in cool picture sleeve with rare pics and liner notes by Ugly Things Mike Stax.
