Biography

1) The Rebels were a 60’s garage rock band from Iran.
Before Prince formed The Time, he considered using his backing band as a side-project called The Rebels. The 1979 project was a group effort, with songs being written and sung by the various members. Andre Cymone and Dez Dickerson each contributed material and a few numbers were sung by Gayle Chapman. The project was eventually shelved but two of the songs composed by Prince were re-recorded and released much later: “If I Love U 2 Night” by Mica Paris (and later by Prince’s wife-to-be Mayte Garcia) and “U” by Paula Abdul. The original Prince guide vocal for “If I Love U 2 Nite” appeared by mistake on the rare Mica Paris ‘Stand For Love’ EP, of which only a handful exist.

2) The Rebels were the Prague (Czech republic) group, founded in July 1967 Korn (vocals, guitar) and Svatopluk Cech, brother Frantisek Ringo Cech (vocals, bass guitar). The Rebels played in the “west-coast style” with elements of “Britain’s Mersey sound”.

    V.A. - Raks Raks Raks - 27 Golden Garage Psych Nuggets From The Iranian 60s Scene - Iranian garage rock – a surprising musical discovery overall! Garage psych nuggets from the Iranian 60s and 70s scene, who were clearly inspired by the American underground of the time, in a heady brew of guitar, organ, bass, and drums, usually with vocals in the local dialect, but a rockish groove that owes plenty to the US. As with almost all Asiatic countries, the Shadows and the Ventures seem to be the true and primal influence in the Iranian music scene of the most part of 60s for the rock sound and attitude to penetrate the country's record industry . -.-.-.-. om hari om .....
