    Man I have really been digging the Nuggets Box Set lately! Also all the music of the animals, the rascals, the Yardbirds, Brian Jones-era Rolling Stones, and many other cats. I was wondering if there was a TGP type message board dedicated to this style of music? West coast Blues and alt-country have a thread, why not garage rock?! :)

    I was all ready to say "ha, the content on those CDs is woefully inadequate!!", and then faith was restored when I saw Davie Allan's "Blue's Theme" listed. :cool:

    There was a 60's garage punk forum back in the very early days of such forums, but it no longer exists, as far as I know.

    Have you checked out the new Back From the Grave and Last of the Garage Punk Unknowns volumes?

    http://www.cryptrecords.com/

    These compilations will keep you occupied for months. It's actually pretty easy to order them from Germany too, believe it or not - they do it all the time.

    The Back From The Grave series has the absolute cream of the crop for 60 garage punk music.

    The Back From The Grave series is awesome! I love 60s garage/psych! I'll be following this thread, would love to have more talk about that genre on TGP!

    Gearslutz is more recording related, but covers low-fi recordings, one man bands, garage and early low track count recording methods, bounce methods, live mixes, placements in the room, etc.

    Love little Stevens Underground Garage on Sirius...especially when they do the British Invasion Segment.

    Slimy self promotion alert - my old band Sugar Shack gets played on Little Stevens Underground Garage from time to time. (well, not that slimy I guess since you cannot buy any of our releases anymore, nor see us play live anywhere).

    This is probably the best LP we did. I don't fully endorse this stuff anymore. Not that it isn't good, or that I'm not 100% grateful for having been in the band; it's just a bit like looking at pictures of yourself back in high school or something. I'm more into things I've done musically since then. We were 100% an asskicker live, though. I think actual 60's garage rock is a more worthy, interesting listen at this point.

    Thanks! This is my more recent band - still has garage elements, but expanded into 80's and 90's post-punk styles as well. Cover artwork is NSFW!

    Great stuff!! Kind of has a Mono Men sound to it......and IIRC, didn't you say one time that you were on Estrus Records? I sure wish there was a way to get a copy of that.....I'd buy it in a second!

    Yes, we were on Estrus! I bet it can be found for cheap on EBAY!

    Proud to say I'm a veteran of the 60's garage rock scene (my NJ band cut an acetate 45 in '67 and it's up on YouTube), plus we were written up in the book, Fuzz, Acid & Flowers. I'm still heavily into that music and have a ton of '60's garage comps. I helped put one out in 1984 called Attack Of the Jersey Teens.
