The Savage: Gimme Some Lovin' (1966?)

No, this is not the Spencer Davis Group sped up but a Japanese group (person?) which appeared on the '91 album Slitherama; Psychedelic Tokyo 1966-1969, the third volume of Japanese garage bands on the Planet X label.

And other than my copy came on white vinyl there is nothing more I can tell you about the album or the artists (who also included The Outcast, the Spiders, the Mops, the Jaguars and other such names).

No matter. It's all in the grooves, especially on this take-no-prisoners version of a classic.
