v/a - Still I'm Sad - Sunday Morning Psychadellic Sunshowers (1966-69 - Moddy Garage, Introspective Psych, and Baroque Pop)

I think of of the first garage comp to focus almost exclusively on this vein of music was the "Shutdown '66" comp that came out in 1991. I read somewhere that the compiler, lacking any better category for describing these sad minor-chord ballads of love-lost and forlorn hearts, as simply "uncompables" because the average garage-head lust was aimed at suburban snot-nosed punk dementia.

Well, you know, punks have feeling too.

In fact, in my opinion, rock n' roll degenerates come in two flavors: cool, popular guys that turn to music because its a quick and easy way to get girls. These are the "Jim Morrisons" of the world and include anyone who's ever worn leather pants.

Then there are the hopeless-causes. These guys have either bad teeth, bad hair, bad skin, or all three. Girls don't like them and they turn to rock and roll out of shear desperation. This includes everyone who has ever been a Ramone. Chances are that hours of practicing "Stairway to Heaven" in their basement will, somehow, manage to magically inject them with just enough sex appeal to get laid at least once. But, unsurprisingly, this will not help them overcome their painful social incompetence and out of frustration they are forced to wright songs about the bad girls who they don't ever want to see again, the good girls who they do, and the girls who they just can't seem to get to notice them at all.

You'll notice that about halfway through, I sort of drop the theme of minor chord, organ heavy garage ballads a bit and throw in some baroque pop, moody rockers, and even a few better known mainstream bands like The Byrds, The Seeds, The Association, etc. I did it for variety, to appeal to a wider audience, and maybe I'll even pump out a second comp in a few short weeks.

Well, I'm off to my room now. I'm gonna go work on the intro to "Louie Louie" for a bit... I wonder if that girl from the soda-pop stand likes rock and roll....

Hey, I'm glad you're back I used to go to your blog about a year or go, hoping you'd post new stuff, but you never did. The Teenage Suicide comp is awesome! Keep it up, young man!

SO glad I stumbled upon your blog. I was looking for some Troggs albums on rapidshare, and your blog came up -- and am I ever glad it did. You're doing a public service for people like me (I assume there are people like me somewhere). Thank you.

Where did those pics come from? Man, I'm getting all sentimental from these shots!

At 8:39 AM, Blogger nick beef said...

fuck yeah!!! I should do a Troggs post!!

I know they're not "rare" or "obscure" but they defiantly are under appreciated. They are in the top 3!!!!! 60's bands for me, some where up there with The Pretty Things, 13 Floor Elevators, The Kinks...

...the pics came somewhere from the internet. I search long and hard for them. May I should credit the source?

I'd love to know! Although I'd probably cry over them - I grew up in Maine in 70's - which was stuck in the 60's until cable TV showed up around '77. Even then we were a good 5 years behind!

Well I disagree with you about Morrison's judgment! He was always a kid who wanted to become a musician and writer, it's not something he wanted from the 16 years old or something. Come on man! It's Morrison we're speaking of!
