Hi! We're a band from Indianapolis started by two friends while drinking and watching the movie "Midnight Madness". Eddie Deezen plays the leader of a nerd scooter gang in the movie. Being fans of Eddie's other work as well (in addition to being a little bit nerdy ourselves), we decided to name the band DEEZEN. We actually have Eddie Deezen's blessings upon our band name and pen pal with Eddie about what the band is doing, ect. We love the garage, rock and roll, and early punk sounds of the 60's, 70's, and early 80's. We play originals and a few covers here and there of songs we like by the Sonics, the Pagans, the Cramps, the Kinks, Link Wray, Saucers, and so on. Glad to be part of a community of like minded people. We have a recording on our profile page if you want to check it out!
Cheers! - Rev. Dr. Doomtone of DEEZEN
I'm Gio, a 21 year old student in NYC. I was born in Lima, Peru and recently discovered the country's huge garage rock scene (Los Saicos, Los Yorks, etc). I've been into garage for a few years now, with some of my favorite bands being Reigning Sound, The Gories, Jay Reatard and The Remains (feel free to add me on Last.fm!).
I've been playing guitar for a while now and would love to start up a band if anyone in the NY/NJ area is interested. I also recently started a online magazine, which I'm trying to expand and create more content for, so check it out: Mr. Lee Magazine.
I'm currently on vacation in Lima, but I look forward to posting more regularly and meeting some of you once I'm back home.
New guy here. I'm 34 and from Massachusetts. Used to play guitar in a few punk bands around here. Been trying to get back in to jammin, looking for the right people. I found the podcasts via Google, and figured I would join. Pretty awesome place you got here.

Just joined, and I'm enjoying looking around. I'm from Melbourne Australia, and played in bands during the 8s and 9ts, including The Reckers (Psychobilly), Unclean Spirits (garage punk) and the Daredevils (garage punk). Looking forward to kickin' back and enjoying the distortion....22.214.171.124!
i MAY HAVE ALREADY SAID SOMETHING HERE.....Younger men , take comfort in knowing the MEMORY is first thing to go.... I'm a writer , "Musician" and sometimes visual artist , based in Chicago. Before that , I lived in Dallas and Arlington (Or Dullass and Arlingfun as we used to say....), Texas. Lived in parts of Illinois prior to that , too. I write and illustrate for Roctober magazine - www.roctober.com , and worked with Bad Trip , Black To Comm , Psychotronic Video , and others. I've got a piece in the recent Roctober retrospective "Flying Saucers Rock'n'Roll" , and in the Roctober - released or related "A Friendly Game of Poker", "T.V. a Go - Go" , and a book of interviews with Dan Clowes ("Ghost World" , "Eightball" , etc.) . I'VE BEEN PLAYING MUSIC , OFF AND ON , FOR 30 years. BUT , i'VE REMAINED A SOLO ACT WITH JUST A FEW SIDE PROJECTS (Inc. DAS VOLT , FRONTED BY BRYAN McMAHON OF THE ELECTRIC EELS. ) . You can see my one You Tube video , my version of "Six Days on The Road", at totallybmx (That's not my page , so , show some respect.)......It'll explain why my report card says "Does'nt Play Well With Others".
Oh ! Music .....Rockabilly , Garage , Psych , Country , Blues , Early Hard Rock , R'n'B , Punk , Instrumental Rock , other stuff.
Hi I'm Ry. Guitarist and Singer from Australia.
I guess I'll just say I play music every day with my best friend in my band The Astros. http://theastros.bandcamp.com
That's our stuff.
I'm also really into all things sci fi, especially table top gaming and things like that.
So hello to everyone =D
I'm a graphic designer from Columbus, OH. I love music. Always have. Don't remember how I got onto garage, but I prefer the 60s stuff as opposed to the 'punk' stuff. Although I do love punk like the SLF, Buzzcocks, Jam etc. Love mod, soul and just about anything good. Favorite newer group would probably be The Mainliners out of Sweden.
It's been six months or more since I've joined and i only just realized that i haven't actually posted yet...
From the UK.
Lover of Music but really can't play... i need both hands and a strong bag to carry a tune.
Not in a Band [see last statement] but love listening to music.
Anything from Native America Pow-Wow to 80s Goth...
Hi Everyone !
I'm a french rock'n'roller relocating to the Pacific Northwest and I want to start Garage bands !
I have tons of ideas ! (check out my links on my page here)
If you wanna roll, please contact me.
I'm new here. I was on the Bomp list for a few years (I think 1995 or 1996 until 2002), then on a few various other music-related Yahoo groups. I'm Andrea, and I live in the Boston area with my husband Mike. We go to some shows, but less and less as we get old and crochety.
I love 60s garage and mod music, and have loved many of the revivals. I was in my 20s during the early 90s revival and really hit my stride there. I lived in New Orleans for part of that and saw the Royal Pendletons practically every week, as well as all of the great bands who would come through such as the Woggles (still a huge fave), the Oblivians, SCOTS, and probably a million more I'm forgetting.
My favorite local band is Muck and the Mires, and I have a couple of their LPs on my mp3 player for when I go to the gym (they are excellent workout music).
My other hobbies are knitting (no shit don't laugh), going out on hikes and photographing all the cool things I see (including snakes we catch), watching genre flicks (mostly horror and 60s/70s Italian - giallo and policia -- as well as Roger Corman-esque b-movies) and hanging out at home (we have three cats, a ball python, a special needs bearded dragon and are currently fostering a red-eared slider).
I feel as though I've gotten woefully out of the loop with music the past few years and hope to learn of bands and releases I may have missed.
