Garage Bands

I love garage music. It’s singularly my favorite music. So, I thought it would be fun for us to post some of our faves of the genre over the years. The genre really exploded in the mid-‘60s, but there have been garage bands right down to the current day.

I have so many favorite garage songs, so I anticipate posting several of my faves if this thread catches on. Please feel free to do the same!

If we’re gonna post garage bands and their music, gotta start at the beginning...

The Standells recorded a lot of great music during their career, but this is their signature song...

4. They did a Beatles cover on an episode of The Munsters.

I'll have to research which episode and song.

13. Thanks...or should I say "gracias"?

Dialogue in Spanish, yet the song was in English. Now I've seen everything.

The 1964 episode was "Far-Out Munster".

14. That's a definite garage sound. Plus, the message and "in your face" rhythm

makes it a classic.

Larry Tamblyn is back with the group. They were playing in the Cornerstones of Rock concerts back in 2016 with the McCoys and the classic 60s bands from Chicago (except Spanky & Our Gang). It's a great DVD and has been on PBS at times.

There were a lot of 70-ish rockers doing amazing things, like they never aged.

9. The Sonics are my favorite

Psycho, Have Love Will Travel and The Witch are great songs. Some call them the first punk rock band.

11. Can't really argue with that

 

The Sonics were a great band, and I love all of the titles you mentioned.

I’ve always felt that the first “punk” song (although they weren’t a “punk” band) was You Really Got Me. It’s been said of Billy Childish that he wanted to sound like The Kinks and he wanted all of his songs to sound like All Day and All of the Night (my favorite Kinks song). Back then the question was “Beatles or Stones?” My answer always was “The Kinks.”

ETA: I’m sure you’re well aware, but The Witch might be the most covered song in rock ‘n’ roll history!

15. Sir Douglas Quintet

 

Not as much interest in this thread as I had hoped, but I’m gonna keep on chooglin’.

Here’s another of my faves. I played this one so much I wore out the grooves on the record.

21. Way to edgy for mid '60 am radio

I actually have the Here are the Sonics album. It’s so scratched that it’s unlistenable. But it’s cool to have a piece of NW music history.

20. Pittsburgh proto-punk garage maniacs the Swamp Rats.

They sounded best when they were mutilating other people’s songs:
