OMENS, THE - Searching/Girl Get
The Omens are famous for one of the hottest garage 45s of all time, “Searching,” which was recorded on the Cody label in July 1966 backed with the fine “Girl Get Away”. The Omens were based in Hammond, Indiana – which borders the South side of Chicago. They recorded "Searching" in the living room of a second-floor apartment in East Chicago, where a guy had an Ampex reel. That recording is mono, one track, one take, no overdubs. They put a Fender Mustang in an Ampeg Rocket amp, a Fender Jazzmaster with a Gibson Maestro Fuzztone in a Fender amp, an Ampeg bass amp and also used the Farfisa they had in the studio to get a brutal sound.
