Pentagon –Dance With Me/Take Your Hands off My Woman –Nevis Records Nev S 104 (197? UK)
As I felt that each song in its own right did not justify an individual review, I have combined their strengths in order to present a (phased) themed post. Now both tracks are close to being considered Junkshop Glam, but just miss hitting the spot in a consistent manner. Jimmy Pasha’s song is pretty weak, BUT features some phased drums along with archetypical Glam “HEYs” and handclaps during the middle break which is the song’s highlight helped by some strident guitar. Pentagon was released on the same label that released Planet of The Drapes by The Flying Saucers. Here the Rock ‘n’ Roll revival angle is enlivened somewhat by a phased (yes again) Glitter Beat which helps pull the performance above perfunctory 50s clichés...
