The Statics (JB Leenander)

Psychedelic music was still going strong when The Statics released this record in 1968. Heavy organ and drums through out.

The Jacemen (Larson)

I would like to take time to remember The Jacemen, They released a cool version of the Beatles "You can't do that".

The Minute Men (Argo)

In my opinion, The British Invasion , Surf and the U.S. Garage sound  of the 1960's were the best years of rock and roll. It was outstanding music.There were so many good bands. I think the Beatles were the greatest Rock and Roll group of all time. The Beatles appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show was watched by millions. So many groups tried to imitate them.With that said in 1964 The Minute Men released a catchy surf sounding song "Please Keep The Beatles In England" lamenting that the Beatles had stole his girlfriend. Lyrics go like this "Before the Beatles starting fooling around I had the cutest little girl in town. She liked the way I combed my hair before but she don't like it anymore". The flip side "My Love Is Gone" is a good DooWop /Surf teen ballad.
