Founded in tiny Sauk City, WI, in 1959, Cuca Records would go on to become one of the most prolific independent labels of the 1960s -- home to everything from polka to gospel, founder Jim Kirchstein would release about 2,000 singles and 150 LPs during the company's 14-year existence, many of which spotlighted the Midwest's vast garage rock scene. The superb Elemental Instrumentals assembles 28 incendiary instrumentals from Cuca's heyday, most if not all of them making their first-ever appearance on CD -- this is guitar rock at its rawest and most vital, making up in sheer frenzy what it lacks in sophistication. Highlights include the Tornados' "Scalping Party," the Zakons' "Wasted," the Voodoos' "Voodoo Walk," and Frank Gay & the Gayblades' "Hades."
