    I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night by Electric Prunes.





    The Nuggets compilation is ground zero for this stuff, and deservedly so, imo.

    Hello Udi, try the podcast The Hard Stuff and Tough Rocks on Sonic Daydream. There's 20+ episodes on Garage/Harder stuff that may be what you're looking for :-)

    There are many, many wonderful garage band tracks, some on "Nuggets" and some not. Here are a few of my favorite, less-well-known, ones:

    seems like a super thin line between Garage and Psychedelic Rock
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    I don't think so. The term "Psychedelic Rock" is unfortunately too often used for a lot of music which has NOTHING to do with psychedelia, but when properly applied (early PF, Fleur de Lys, Sunforest, all the Joe Boyd stuff) there's no overlap with "garage."

    Garage definitely started out way before, but did eventually merge into psychedelic (Seeds, Standells, etc). I think garage probably started out with Louie Louie which was what '62? Kids in a garage who just loved to bang away on the I-IV-V progression with no pretension of emulating Beatles harmonies or anything like that. Here's one of my favorites of the early era.

    Richard Berry wrote it in '55, it was released in '57 and was a moderate success in L.A. Rockin' Robin Roberts heard it and brought it up the the Pacific Northwest, where bands like The Frantics and the Dave Lewis Combo and the Wailers played it live. Within a week of each other in April 1963, both The Kingsmen and Paul Revere & The Raiders recorded versions at Bob Lindahl's studio in Portland, Oregon.

    You'll want the "Nuggets" box set and the "Trash Box" if this stuff scratches an itch for you. I liked this stuff better when I was a drunk 24 year old, but the riffs are all good and some of the songs actually hold your interest almost to the end.

    The ultimate garage anthem for me is The Seeds' Pushing Too Hard.

    Well Psych certainly seemed to seep out of the garage, but I can't help but linking much of Garage Rock with Surf Rock (the common suits are helping), though I would somewhat exclude (not totally, though) the most famous surf band (Beach Boys) from this assessment, because they hit it way too big to stay garagey

    Though Surf Rock seemed to be mostly instrumental (except for Beach Boys), it's rather hard not thinking of Wipe Out or Apache (well I'm stretching it on that one a bit ain't I??) as Garage anthems, though historically it's way too early

    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from heroin-addicts to crazy ones

    Coming to you from Orlando, FL.. Formed in '65 and active until '70. Probably best known for 'Mirror of Your Mind'.. about the 6:40 mark.

    CWB had that garage/psych mix happening.

    During the 1960s garage rock was not recognized as a distinct genre and had no specific name, but critical hindsight in the early 1970s

    I would say that early Stooges material qualifies as garage rock. And although garage rock was largely an American phenomenon (simply because not many European homes had, and still do not have, garages), Can’s Monster Movie, with the American Malcolm Mooney on vocals, was an example of European garage rock.

    Educate you as in you know nothing and are just scratching the surface?

    I would highly recommend jumping in with any of the Rhino Nuggets compilations and/or any of the other countless box set comps that do a good job without much overlap with Nuggets like Rubble, Mindrocker, Circus Days and much more.

    This band from Canada calls themselves as playing "angular garage-rock", something I describe of my stuff too
