I'd like to get a list of people - artists and groups - that people here would consider the best of the best from a GaragePunk perspective. If we can get together a list of say, 50 or so candidates, I'll conduct a poll here on the forum to elect members to a "Garage Punk Hall of Fame".
Candidates can be from any era. Just to get us going why don't I throw out some names off the top of my head.
The Dead Boys
The Devil Dogs
Roky Erickson/13th Floor Elevators
And feel free to toss out any names you can think of. Even if you don't think they're quite "Hall of Fame" worthy but should at least be considered.
I think Bo's already in the RnR hall of fame anyway... Can ye double induct people into halls? Maybe rather than a garage Punk hall of fame there should be a hall for musicians the other halls are to square to put in! Hasil adkins, nervous norvus... The Hall of who the fucks that guy! Actualy I think even link wray isn't in the RNR hall of fame... what an ommission!
Yeh hes really not in there... The Bee-Gees are however... And Bob Marley... I think if the RnR hall of fame is anything to go by we should really stop worrying about whether its garage punk or not and just put anything in... For the first inductee to the garage punk hall of fame I nominate abba...
Almost anything with Russell Quan
The Pretty Things
The Ugly Ducklings
The Count V
13th Floor Elevators

"Thanks for your thoughts. I don't want to piss off fans by issuing later a 45 they thought was very limited. I really like the 100-copy idea, though. It can BARELY pay for itself, but would be so cool...
