Desperated Company –Higher

Desperated Company –Higher/Can Somebody Tell Me –Foon F4535026 (1977 Belgium)

Higher was the first of the two singles that Belgium’s Desperated Company released in 1977, but Higher is their stand out moment being a prime example of 60s Beat influenced Powerpop sounding like something that could have easily been released on Titan (or on Outrage) at the time. The B side is also cool, melodic but with a more straight ahead Boogie flavour. At least 2 members of the band are still active today as Desperated Company still ply their trade as a cover band servicing the local Belgian population at private functions, clubs and other forms of merriment…

Higher's a great tune. Thanks for sharing. Came across both of these on YouTube, interestingly enough, uploaded also on May 7, 2014.
Not that i matters, I suppose.
