Positively 13 O’Clock – “Psychotic Reaction” (1967)

August 27, 2008 at 2:52 am (Garage Rock)

Remake of this classic song by The Count Five – this is actually a Texas band called Mouse & the Traps (who released many singles) under a different name. A bit more frantic than the original.

Heavy fuzz-guitar stomper from this one-shot band. Too bad they disappeared after this.

The Brogues – “I Ain’t No Miracle Worker” (1965)

August 27, 2008 at 2:32 am (Garage Rock)

Garage punk classic from this short-lived group. Later covered by The Chocolate Watchband and in the 80s by The Chesterfield Kings and The Barracudas, as well as being included on the now-famous 1972 compilation Nuggets, this song has become a garage rock classic.
