A nearly hour-long documentary about THE GORIES. No kidding.
The superior SUPERCHARGER, sublimated even below the vastly inferior “Eight Ball Scratch” and The Mummies, circa 1991 or so. I probably attended this event, though have no knowledge of it remaining in 2014.
THE HUNS, the Chicago-based garage punk band responsible for the ear-shredding “Destination Lonely” from 1966.
Best reverential straight-up 60s punk of the 21st century? I’d find it hard to argue if you chose this new album from Richmond, VA’s THE AR-KAICS to fill that hole.
Their new and only album is terrific, a raw, overly amplified speaker blowout in the Keggs, Things To Come, Murphy & The Mob school of bent, loud garage pop music. I’m going to play it a bunch on my phony radio show/podcast, starting w/ the next episode. Download the whole thing yourself here.
Outstandingly primitive, ridiculously foul-mouthed GORIES drummer Peg O’Neil, circa early 90s.
Have always been a repeat listener of THE DONNAS’ 1997 debut LP, a high school ramalama Ramones-athon that never gets old to these ears. I saw them live around this time, just as they were graduating from simple riffs (and from high school) and into a dumb cars/boys/rockin’ vibe a la The Runaways. They were great.
This song, “Lana & Steve”, features one of the all-time great rhyming couplets: “She was from San Mateo/Her Dad was in the CIA-o”.
Here’s something I wrote about the album back in 2004.
One of the best spazzy, detuned garage punk songs of the past year is by Sydney, Australia’s RAW PRAWN, and it’s called “None Left”, and you get to listen to it here.
Download my Dynamite Hemorrhage Radio podcast #12, and you’ll not only get to hear the song there, you’ll get to hear me say the band’s name in Australian as well.
Great late 90s Belgian garage punk fanzine called BAZOOKA, published by Tom Arnaert.
Totally bonzai garage punk classic called “Icepick” from 1992 by SUPERCHARGER, a raw trio from the San Francisco Bay Area whom I got to careen around the room to a bunch of times at parties, warehouse shows and the occasional "club" gig. This is from a 1-sided 45 that Trent from The Mummies put out on his own label in an absurdly limited quantity.
