Yeah, not sure I would have (or will) gone out of my way to see bands playing their style of music (ambient electronic shoegazer?) but now that I've been exposed it's kind of engaging. At this point I doubt they'll tour this far away from St. Louis but you never know.

It worked. I pre-ordered their record. It releases next Tuesday I think. They are kind of late 1960s funk-garage rock, The Standells, Sonics, MC5 or whatever.

Like this:


Or one of Kirsten and my favorite guilty pleasures, the Electric Six. Saw those guys at the Mile High Music Fest once and they had the white leather pants and the whole thing.

I pre-ordered the album a few weeks ago. Just got the shipping notice.

I'd have to say that the Yardbirds were more than just a garage band, no matter what iteration.

Of course The Count Five 5 so wanted to be the Yardbirds. But so did a lot of other bands. It's exactly what defined the style, what it would sound like when people jammed in their garages. The Yardbirds were a lot better and innovative musicians.

My opinion on the matter is that Giorgio Gomelsky, the Yardbirds' producer after their first album, didn't have a clue how to make a good sounding recording. Their output mostly sounded as if it had been recorded in a bad sounding garage. The original British pressings that I have have, even the monos, sound horrible compared to those of the Beatles, Rolling Stones and the bloody Who. With guitar players like Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck how could the Yardbirds not have been, as you say, better and innovative? They truly did rock! Some of the lousy sound can be blamed on the use of "Electronically Reprocessed Stereo" so prevalent at the time but heavy handed mixing made their great music sound like dreck. Again, just my opinion.
