It's trash

About 10 years ago, Joey Tacon organized a little garage festival here in Huntsville. It was a pretty good weekend. The Immortal Lee County Killers, The Panic Buttons, The Squares, The Lost Sounds and Joey's own band the 3Ds were some of the bands that appeared. I think Deadbolt played but that may have been a different night.

Joey wanted to have some prizes and things to giveaway during the shows. He gave away some 3Ds records. I put 23 obscure songs (with one ringer) from some hard to find (in Huntsville anyway) or out of print garage comps onto a C-60 to hand out to the first people through the door.

I had pretty much forgotten about the tape until a few weeks ago when I was talking to a guy at a show. He said that he still had a copy but it was worn out. So I made a CD. It's the same songs from the original tape in a slightly different running order. If either of you regular readers have the original tape, there is a bonus song included this time.

These are some of my favorite garage records. I've already posted a few of them on the blog so they'll sound familiar to both of you regular readers. Some of the songs have been covered by younger garage bands, some are really obscure and one has never been comped anywhere else. The ringer was a huge hit in 1966 but was not available in 1998. Except for a couple of songs, I stayed away from records easily available on the NUGGETS, PEBBLES, TEENAGE SHUTDOWN and BACK FROM THE GRAVE series.
