Back?

Well its been over 2 months since ive uploaded anything to the blog. Blame it on lack of comments on the posts, on gyro1966 and his imense collection of garage comps being placed up at TWILIGHTZONE! (Im still several months behind on those), but most of all blame it on laziness. Anyways here are three great bands you guys should check out. Ill try to continue and update as much as possible.


Its great that after several years of great this band final release an offical LP. While they cleaned up their sound a bit for this album there garage-pop trashiness is still evident in all the tracks.

The Okmoniks - Party Fever!!!


This band name has been mentioned on nearly every indie and garage blog, magazine, and website. After watching them live I can see why.
"Within seconds of hearing their seductive three-part girl group vocal harmonies lushly interwoven with chest-pounding rhythms of beautiful feedback, it's obvious that their songs are hard to resist, especially if you find yourself keen on the mid-80s noise pop conglomerate of Jesus & Mary Chain, The Vaselines, Black Tambourine, and Shop Assistants. The echo-filled songs resonate with such sweetness and provocative noise, that it culminates into a wall of beautiful vocals interplayed with a simple yet timeless beat that will have no problem crossing over genre lines and warming up to virtually anyone with an ounce of good taste." - in the red

Vivian Girls - Vivian Girls



Another great band; Black Time. I had no idea this band existed until a few weeks ago. I got to see them live and I can tell you that Ive been missing out. They opened up for Vivian Girls, but they could have easily been the headliners. If anything they held back because of it. Keep an eye for their new album Double Negative

Black Time - Blackout

Hey now! Glad to see that King Khan wasn't the last post around here. I'm kind of a nerd for your site and I checked it everyday. I guess I'll just have to keep doing that. As always, thanks for the music!
