The Elois – By My Side


This is a monster of a slice of mid-60s Australian garage rock. I haven’t researched that much about this 45, but I do know that it will melt your speakers! (check out when the pummelling guitar riff comes in about 3/4 of the way through) The flip is their version of “I’m A Man” that also has it’s moments (specifically when the lead guitar starts killing it). I believe that “By My Side” is an original by the band but I don’t know if they released any other records.

Struth, throw another shrimp on the barbie & listen below!!

  • Wow – rare 45!

    I have to make do with the crappy bootleg edition, but one day…..

  • The Elois didn’t release any other 45s, etc. Howeve there are three unreleased tracks which will be released unto CD quite soon.

    They are;

    1. IF YOU DON’T WANT ME NOW (LIKE EARLY MASTERS APPRENTICES ROCKIN BALLAD)
    2. SUNSHINE & HAPPINESS (WILD FUZZ ACID-PSYCH!!)
    3. HUSH YOUR MOUTH (FRANTIC FUZZY BO DIDDLEY COVER!)

    Cheers
    Stampy

  • I would be really interested in hearing these unreleased tracks.

  • This is one of the all-time great recordings. Teenage frustration is a wonderful creative aphrodisiac. I touch on this song as well at http://ontheflip-side.blogspot.com
    but I don’t have the original recording. I stole your pic of the label, I hope it is okay. Let me know if is not and I will fix it.
    cheers,

    Morgan

  • Hi Kris it’s me again,

  • Is it for sale ?

  • It doesn’t take anything away from how great this track is- but that label scan is the bootleg repress. There are close up label scans of an original and this boot on popsike.com and this is clearly the latter.

  • Eh? This is deffo the original label. I suggest you revisit your source…

  • Definitely…all I can think is that the label scan changed. I distinctly recall poring over the popsike label scans and being 100% sure…and there’s nothing here now that would have even led to that initial ‘that doesn’t look quite right’ thought.

    Aah geekery. Anyway, I now retract my quibble. The central ring in the photo is in exactly the right place relative to the text. It’s an OG, no doubt.

  • Hi, my brother co-wrote By My Side, Greg Heenan he died many years ago and we are still in touch with the guitarist who lives in Maryborough, VIc.

  • Great Chooon, thanx v’much.

  • Hi Lisa……I knew your brother Greg..he took over as bass guitarist from me as I was called up into the army late 60’s.I actualy kept in contact with him early 70’s when he was playing at the Mathew Flinders Hotel in Melbourne. Would be great to hear from you…respond if you wish to chat.

  • Greg Heenan was my brother and I’ve been lucky enough to pick up excellent copies marked not for sale. I’ve given one to Greg’s daughter and have two more for 2 of his sons. I spent many a session with Greg at the Mathew, especially Saturdays after Karate training. Great memories when the Breastworks played there for so many years six nights a week, then a stint at the Dorset, then back to the Mathew. Regards. Phil Heenan
