Great concept and I've enjoyed listening. One thing: The Belfast Gypsies sound like Them because they are Them. When I was a senior in high school my friend was an exchange student from Northern Ireland. He told me his brother was equipment manager for a band from Belfast called The Belfast Gypsies but they had changed their name to Them. As soon as "Gloria" hit the states my friend said, "That's them."

Belfast Gypsies were TWO of Them, and existed as contemporaries performing at the same time. It is simply that the music they recorded under direction of Kim Fowley came out after Them had broken up.
