Favorite Music/Influences (list some bands, musicians, genres, etc.):
I dig 60s garage, folk-rock and psych bands from the following states and labels Michigan, New England, Minnesota, Florida, California, Texas, Fenton Label, Soma Label, Pyramid Label, USA/Destination label, Ikon Label, International Artists, Back From The Grave Comps, Teenage Shutdown Comps, etc etc the Garage revival bands I dig mostly are The Guaranteed Ugly, The Thanes, The Mystreated, The Higher State, and The Pandoras..... I like loads of other types of music too but seeing as this site caters for garage punk probably best to not go too off topic.

I like florida rocks again!! REALLY DIG Mal Thursday and anyone who plays my records.
Hi Paul, muchly honoured for your friend request, although I think I shud be requesting you mate. Btw it was a pleasure to hear ur stuff, I knew straight away Mathew was on drums. Me & Mole had an epic 3 chat on the phone the other night. WE had 15 years to catch up. Will be visiting Folkstone soon to see the old gang. Cheers Pal
Thanks for getting in touch. I recognise your name, from reviews in Shindig(?) I guess. I have most of the Higher State's records; saw them at a Shindig-organised WCPAEB tribute gig up in London a year or so ago.
I've been in Hillingdon just outside Uxbridge since 2005 and from '73 lived near Heathrow, where I slaved away for BA in IT. Had a pokey pad in Harlington from 1981, just across the A4 from the main runway (one thing I do not miss is the noise and aviation fuel fumes!).
If you're interested in more obscure bands and 45s that I didn't get to include in the latest Fuzz book, do sign up to my "Max Myndblown" Facebook page and click on the photo albums. I'm going through my entire collection; it's taken one year to get to the end of "D" so it's gonna be a long haul.
How's it going?
Good to hear from you! At Heathrow now, all in good spirits. Mum's the word with the girl. i brought my 1968 Yamaha SG3. Feel welcome to try it. Gotta dash for Portugal flight!
See in Brighton!
