Fools On The Hill 19: That's cool, that's trash - 19 obscure garage punk greats from the american mid-60's

Time for the usual weekly update… We're back to Garage with a capital G! As usual, there is a twist with Fools on the Hill. We wanted a volume that would showcase the harder sounding trend, without sacrifying the Pop sound. Most of the Crypt comps were really too trashy for us, so we carefully selected 19 songs with a tough and edgy sound that still manage to add something to the game. To top it off, most of these songs and bands are fairly rare. Think of it: it's the one comp that took our own Sylvain FuzzyMental weeks to prepare. Hell with over 600 period vinyl comps to ruffle through, it could have taken him months! This is not a subgenre definying comp, rather a good mix of harder sounding (with a few surprises) pop-tinged garage songs. They could all have been re-recorded in the 80's by the Revival bands… why did they miss them? Heavy reliance on Nuggets/Boulder series? Lack of good taste? Too influenced by the "Crypt Trash" sound? or all the above? Enjoy them now!
