Dead Moon, ‘Echoes of the Past’ (Sub Pop)

Oregon living fossils Fred and Toody Cole were both born in ’48, got married in ’67 (three years after Fred first recorded), started Dead Moon in ’87, and have never quit. They’re as legendary for their dogged perseverance as for their lo-fi psychedelic cow-punk, and this two-disc, 49-song retrospective of self-released output probably should be half as long. But so what? Their high-register hybrid of Roky Erickson, X, and AC/DC could keep you alert on back roads for hours.
