The Greatest Garage Rock 45 Of All Time: The Keggs

so this band the Keggs released one 45 ever and it fucking rules the universe. legend has that only like 75 copies were ever pressed and most were burned in a house fire and the lead singer got decapitated in a motorcycle crash. then the songs got issued on those Back From The Grave comps Crypt Records put out. i don't know how much of that legend is true and i don't care, it's a good story. regardless "To Find Out" is right up there with "Psycho" by The Sonics and Bunker Hill's "The Girl Can't Dance" on my list of raw loose garage rock and rollers. hell when you listen to it you'll probably think the Black Lips should be paying these dudes some royalties. regardless listen to both songs and then hunt them down. fucking amazing.

"To Find Out"

new music i'd recommend to people who still listen to new music

one of my favorite discoveries last year was the Minks single “funeral song” which reminded me of all the things i enjoy about gothy pop music. the Minks are def big fans of Head On The Door era Cure, c86, and probably Belle & Sebastian too. this is a solid debut record and i won’t be surprised if it ends up on a lot of year end lists for ‘11.

other than "Funeral Song" which has been a jam of mind for a while, my favorite songs are “Our Ritual”, “Cemetery Rain”, and “Kusmi”. check it out.
