(I don't really like some of these bands)
yeah. Nice one Lenny. I always tend to forget about the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band. Part 2 is a great wee pop gem of wierdness and idiosyncracy. 'Scuse Me Miss Rose is in my top 20 altime garage tunes. gettin goosebumps even thinkin of it. Has anyone heard The Scotsmen, Beer Bust Blues. If not check it out. A finer garage there has yet to be made.
and the Dead Kennedys? I know it's not exactly garage rock, but last night I saw Jello Biafra playn' with Guantanamo School of Medecine, and I'd remember that great San Fran Band...Dead Kennedys uber alles!
