WAAAAUUGH!! If I'm not very much mistaken - this was the final entry in the Garage Punk Unknowns series**. On the Back From the Grave series Tim Warren tracked down and paid all the bands... but this series held a bunch of mystery bands who were more or less untraceable (hence 'unknowns').
The entire series is worth picking up if you like un-psychedelic primo teen raunch from the golden age, 1965 - 67 era.
Like the BFTG series it sticks to a tried and tested formula - teen bands, primitive productions, high energy, few covers... but measuring very high on the enthusiasm-o-meter. Yeah - all these bands were filled with massive self-belief that they could be the next Yardbirds or Stones. The records they made were rough, raw.... and brilliant.
Great series - highly recommended for fans of the real spirit of rock n' roll.... teen rebellion!! Yeah!

** Until the new 'Last Of The Garage Punk Unknowns' series that Tim issued in 2015/16.
