Oh yes, the Garage Rock thread. This is much like the Grunge Thread. Thing is we all know at one time or another you've liked some garage rock, whether it be 60's garage rock (Kinks, etc) Or some of todays great garage rock bands (Strokes, White Stripes, Hives).

So we have it, The Garage Rock Discussion Thread. Place any Questions/interesting facts/Sentences of hate/etc Regarding Garage Rock here.

Lets start it out simple, What do you like about Garage rock?

I think you're going to find that there aren't a whole lot of people around here who like garage rock. Sure some do, but a majority don't for some reason or another.

I just bought Thee Michelle Gun Elephant's "Gear Blues" and that's a great hard rockin' album. It really doesn't matter that 98% of it's in Japanese.

I love garage rock just because they're often very simple, catchy songs that have that kind of dirty/gritty feel to them. My favorite band has to be the Black Keys, though I like most garage rock. Oneida, The Livin' Kitchen, The Detonations, The Heartless Bastards, The Kills, The Hives, The Von Bondies, The Willowz, The Unicorns, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Death from Above 1979, White Stripes, The Vines, etc., etc. Great stuff.

So yeah :D

^x1 I just saw that too. I thought they spoke the thuth, he does put alot of energy in. But they did say he was as good as Hendrix, which is a bit stupid, he's good, but not that good. I thought they would be higher than 46 though.

^x2 Japanese garage rock, hell yeah!

Garage rock has energy, and I like that. The catchy riffs and upbeat feel make it fun to listen to. Garage rock is probably my favourite type of rock. I enjoy, Hives, The Kills, Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vines, Kings of Leon, Kinks, Von Blondies, Sahara Hotnights, Subways, and of course, my favourite band, The White Stripes.

Interesting fact: The White Stripes got thrown out of the Hotel Yorba when they were recording there. Amazing!


I love garage rock. It makes my life complete.

No way! Thee Michelle Gun Elephant is my favorite-band in the whole world (even though they broke up two years ago). I suggest you get more of their stuff.

Sweet.

Satanic Boom Head is great. Gear Blues is great, perhaps their best album (it was their breakthrough at least). So many great songs, Smokin' Billy, Killer Beach, Brian Down, G.W.D., Danny Go. All amazing songs.

Btw. here's a japanese site that has tabbed almost all of their music, almost only chords though, you'll have to figure out the rest yourself. :P

That's cool thanks.

Hey there's this band called Cobra Verde that are out of Ohio that I've come to really like a lot (I made a thread but it didn't go over so well).

Their site is here (http://www.cobraverde.com/index.php?subject=discography-multimedia&sub=index) and you can listen to some of their songs. You definitely want to listen to the higher quality ones, the 28k sound like shit.

I haven't listened to all of them but I recommend the songs off of Nightlife since I own that album (except "What Makes a Man a Man", that song is just really strange and out of character for them, I guess it's not necessarily bad though).

Anyway, enjoy!

Edit: I can't navigate that TMGE site at all. :confus:

Any fans of the Strokes here?

hell yes. "Hard To Explain" is one of the best songs written in years, and "Someday" isn't too far behind. They'd be hard pressed to top either of those, but i like both their albums and the new song has grown on me.

I also love the white stripes and libertines, and i enjoy franz ferdinand as well if you clump them there. I'd like to get into more bands from this genre.

i just bought a CD by Little Barrie as well. They're closer to white person soul though, but with a garage instrumental sound. Just the singer sounds like the guy from Maroon 5, which i don't mind but im sure some people do. The drummer sings backup and some dual leads, and he is probably a better singer actually. Anyway, they are pretty good, especially the single "Free Salute".

I really dislike The Strokes, but consider myself a garage rock fan. There's just something about them I find so....rubbish.

The White Stripes, The Von Bondies and Kings of Leon have all been mentioned but they are all fantastic IMO - The White Stripes are the best band I've ever seen live, it's amazing what a sound two people can produce.

Yeah, I saw The White Stripes live almost 3 weeks ago when they were playing here in Sweden. It was brilliant. Too bad they can't put out the energy they have live on their records, that'd be so sweet. I like how he makes the songs "heavier" live (maybe even a little faster?).

I think all of The Strokes music sounds the same... :-/

not my absolute favorite band today, but i will readily admit that the white stripes are making the most important music in modern rock. they are willing to play different sounds, have all the creative control they want and they have not had a bad album, some good some great. they have great riffs, great folksy songwriting, everything to be remembered as an absolutely classic band.

It's about time someone made a thread on garage rock. I just love that in a time with so much boring overproduced music, bands can just come out and make the most raw and energetic music possible.

I like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Von Bondies, Strokes, Vines, Black Keys, Kings Of Leon, Death From Above 1979, Libertines, Hives, Kinks, Unicorns, and of course my all-time favourite band The White Stripes.

The rawness and energeticness is definately the best part of garage rock. And I agree, in a time of boring overproduced music it is god to get something fresh.

If your favourite band is the White Stripes, I wonder if you would be interested in joining the fantastic White Stripes Fanclub.

In fact anyone can join the fanclub if you wish, and of course if you like the White Stripes.

Mine is a band called The Livin' Kitchen, who you can listen to here (http://music.download.com/livinkitchen/3600-8700_32-100609497.html?tag=listing_song_artist) or Cobra Verde (if they count) who I posted a link to on the first page. :D

yeah, i remember while back when the Hives and White Stripes were starting to get popular, they called it the attack of the "The" bands.

The Hives seem to get either great hate or great love. i love 'em. but their older stuff is pretty punk (several songs on Barely Legal declare it), but even so it kinda sets itself apart from regular punk. whatever the case, its high energy rock n roll, like it should be. good stuff.

I've tried putting my favourite garage rock playlist, but it was too long, so my computer broke, twice. I may put it on later.

Whom here likes The Others? I bought the album, but not heard it much. My favourite songs are 'William' and 'This is for the poor'.
And who's heard of 'Hiss'. I bought their album, because it was a pound, but not heard it yet. I think they're garage rock anyway.

Garage rock isn't what it used to be, alot of it was influenced by punk it seems. I like the old Garage rock all the better nowadays anyway.

I saw the Strokes last night on TV playing juice box, awesomness. I love the Strokes even though I used to think their songs were waay to repititive and I still guess they are but now they've been embedded in my brain enough for me to enjoy! I think a lot of Garage rock is like that.

I think Babyshambles are quite nice, Fu*k Forever is a great song. Love the opening riff.

For those who likes Thee Michelle Gun Elephanty, the best band in the world, I would recommend Rosso, Chiba Yusuke's (TMGE singer/guitarist), new band. It's a trio were Chiba plays leadguitar (and sings ofcourse). Not as good as TMGE but still great. Still...if you haven't heard all of TMGE's music, don't get in to Rosso yet. Heh.

Yesterday I tried to listen to Hives....I just can't....it's so weak music.

Hello garage rockers! Long time no see.

Just posting to ask if you've found out anything about the garage rock world recently? And to just say a couple of things too.

What are your views on Steriogram? I consider them garage rockish, with some funk in there too, but overall are a good band. Walkie Talkie Man and Tsunami are my favourite songs.

And if anyone likes the White Stripes, this website is an excellent source of information and also has some videos and live song downloads. http://www.whitestripes.net/index.php

^I don't like that guitar. But it was a nice short set to watch.
Bmm386 and Rinosaur Bones have been banned. :( That might be why the thread is going slowly.

From the White Stripes newsletter:

"Hello children,

Jack and Meg have just announced that they will be playing 3 club dates in addition to headlining Big Day Out while they are down under in Australia. Be sure to check out the tour page for all of the details on http://www.whitestripes.com

Ah yes, garage rock. I'm a huge garage rock fan.

Here's a few you guys may not be familiar with:

1. Help You Anne - The Lyres... this might just be the single most perfect garage rock song ever written. The Lyres were a Boston band lead by a guy named Jeff "monoman" Conolly. He became famous (actually more like infamous) for his obsessive devotion to the genre. They released about five albums in the eighties, but the best is On Fyre. It kicks righteous ass as far as garage rock goes and Help You Anne is the highlight of the album.

2. Looking For Lewis And Clarke - The Long Ryders ... not really a garage rock band, but this is a killer cut nonetheless.

3. Mary Don't Change - The Del Fuego's ...more of a rootsy/bluesy band but this song is pretty garage rockish...

also check out The Fleshtones, The Chesterfield Kings, The Vipers, The Del Lords, The Barracudas...lots of good stuff I can remeber from the eighties.

Why does everyone think that The Strokes and The White Stripes are garage rock? Thats something I do not understand.

Everyone needs to listen to:

Billy Childish
Thee Headcoats
Thee Mighty Caesars
Thee Fine Lines
The Bloody Hollies
The Oblivians
The Gories
The Reatards
The Reigning Sound
The Detroit Cobras
The Dirtbombs
The Screws
The Mummies
The Alarm Clocks
The Chessmen
The Classics
The Cliques
The Decades
The Dirty Wurds
The Elite
The Emperors
Fallen Angels
The Gentlemen
Grains Of Sand
The Hatfields
The Heard
The Human Beings
Ken & The Fourth Dimension
Larry & The Blue Notes
The Outsiders
Paul Bearer & The Hearsemen
The Plague
Royal Flairs
The Sound Barrier
The Spades
The Uncalled For
The Vestells

and of course the two bands that essentially started it all:

The Sonics and The Wailers!

^ Can't say ive heard of the Mummies any song suggestions or albums? & WOW! They dress like mummies on stage! How garage rock :)

I've just recently got into garage rock but mainly just the more known bands like Vines, Strokes & Hives however the Kinks are one of my favourite bands ever. I'm not a real big fan of the Stripes though.

Holy moley NOT the dancing button. Antidote does it to me though, you're not the alone my friend.

I'm in a pickle about whether I like the Hives or not.

My Reasons for not liking them
- Most of their songs are really annoying ( unless you're planning to dance ).
- Pelle is too good-looking. :(
- They always sound so up themselves in interviews.
- The first album really, really blows.
- The 3 powerchord thing...

I'll always have the biggest soft spot for them though. They put on the greatest show (seriously), signed my cds and I got Vigilantes pick. Not to mention... they're Swedish.

pistoldisco
12-29-2005, 08:55 AM
^ Totally agree about The Hives. The only song that I've thought "well this melody is alright" is "Two-Timing Touch And Broken Bones", and that melody is like 50 years old! It's been used so many times at different speeds. I still don't like it.

But beeing swedish myself it's nice to see how such a band can make so well in the big world.

Oh, and Billy Childish is pretty awesome.

12-29-2005, 01:55 PM

^Never heard of them. What are some good songs?

I got the Hives DVD for christmas, and it's excellent. There's also a competition on UG to win it.
Some of their songs do sound the same, but if you see them live, they're excellent. I've not actually seen them live, but on the DVD they look good, and other people have said so too, who have seen them.

Bmm386

12-29-2005, 06:23 PM
I've heard a few songs now. I would consider them garage rock I think. I don't recognise any songs though, besides 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps', but that's because it's on the start to Coupling (Tv show). :D
They seem pretty good. I'm going to look how much any of their albums are now. I might consider buying one.

pistoldisco
01-05-2006, 11:24 PM
Don't want to be rude but seriously, they're not worth beeing called "Garage Rock". When I hear the word "Garage Rock" I think rusty hard-rocking music that really rocks. This is the third proof (or have they done more records?) that they're just very mellow and their music feels so "polished", it feels like it's made on a computer. They're rather "alternative" poprock. I mean they're almost like Coldplay for christ sake. Sorry, boring in my opinion.

(Please don't give me the blabla Garage Rock is this and that and beatles/who/stones where once garage, I know what I'm talking about.)

My least favourite Stripes song would probably be It's true that we love one another. I didn't like the Nurse when I first heard the album, but I've grown to like it now.

I am very much looking forward to the Raconteurs album. I wonder what it'll sound like. I'm guessing weird. :D I wish it came out sooner.

I like Juice Box, and that's all I've heard from the latest Strokes album. I might buy it, although I'd like to hear a couple more songs first. I thought their other two albums were alright, some good songs, some not so great.

Alright! I think it's time for another surge of garage-rock posts. Anyone got any new information or whatever? I have a couple of things.

The White Stripes are going to appear on an episode of the Simpsons in the next season, which will be shown in America in autumn (fall).

The Raconteurs are releasing their first single. Stuff from NME: http://www.nme.com/news/white-stripes/22043 (It's also got a nice picture on there.)
'Steady, As She Goes'/'Store Bought Bones' will be a limited edition vinyl-only release and is out on January 30. The band, who are fronted by Jack White and Brendan Benson, are planning live shows in the UK soon.
I'm definately going to see them. :cool:

I bought the Hives debut album 'Barely Legal' last week, and actually quite like it. I thought I wouldn't because it would be too 'punky' but it's not that bad. And for a good price of 4.

What are everyone's views on Electric Six? They're kind of garage rocky, but I've only heard a couple of songs. I might purchase their album if I feel like it. I like what I've heard: Danger High voltage, and Gay Bar. But what do the other song's sound like?

Oh, and Meg White's doing some modelling. :p:

Well, he used to be in a band a long time ago called Two Star Tabernacle, (sp?), but I don't think they got far. Also I think he's been in a couple of other bands too. He did a few songs for the Cold Mountain soundtrack. He produced Loretta Lynn's latest album and appears on a couple of tracks. He has featured on some Soledad Brothers songs. Is in the Raconteurs. And has his own record company and produces about 3 bands on it (Including the White Stripes). That's all I can think of. At the moment.

What's evryone's thoughts on Ash? We might have discussed them before, but we can discuss them again. Personally, I like them. Some very catchy songs, like Burn Baby Burn. Meltdown is such a great album.

Everything except nu-clear sounds.

1977, Their 1st album was pretty grungy - similar to Dinosaur Jr.
Meltdown, Their newest album is pretty heavy for a pop/garage/rock band.

Those are the only two I have just now, but The Angels one is supposed to be really good, although inconsistent - it's the one withe shining light and Burn Baby Burn.


My favuritre songs are burn Baby Burn, Clones, Shining Light, Orpheus, Girl from Mars and song 4 on 1977 (can't remember it's name)

I agree, not Garage rock, but they're definately not pop punk either. They were just a Brit pop band with a more alternative edge, then the newer stuff went to crap, I mean, 'Burn baby burn', come on guys, then more recently 'Orpheus'. '1977' and 'Nu-clear sounds' is where its at for Ash material.

I prefer their heavier stuff on Meltdown. I have the Nu-clear sounds album, but there aren't any songs that stand out. Orpheus and Burn baby Burn are great songs! A couple of their best catchiest songs. I've heard 1977, but that's probably their worst album. Too poppy for my liking.
If a garage rock fan was going to buy an album, I'd suggest Meltdown- Clones, Orpheus, Evil eye, and Meltdown, are all brilliant songs.

I think garage rock kind of morphed into punk during that period, then new wave, no wave, etc. Then it was sort of imbedded into the grunge movement. Nowadays with this so called "garage rock revival" it's just coexisting with all of the genres it inspired. That's kind of the way I see it anyway.

:eek: I don't know how you could say such a thing! They're good. The music can be a bit repetative, but they have catchy songs and good lyrics. I got their DVD for christmas, and it's really good- They're a great live band, and have lots of energy, which makes them entertaining.
Favourite songs include Hate to say I told you so (It's impossible to dislike!), Two timing touch and broken bones, Die alright, and Diabolic Scheme. I prefer the later albums to Barely Legal, but they're still all good.

I actually do find the Hives pretty annoying after a bit of listening. I used to be obsessive over them but that wore thin before very long. Now I can listen to a song or two, then I've gotten enough Hives for the time being. I agree their energy is great, though, and they do have some catchy songs.

Meltdown is my favourite of the 2 I have (1977)

It's also their heaviest, and 1977 is the better album from a guitar point of view.
The Angels one has some of their finest moments (Burn Baby Burn and Shining Light), but is supposed to get a bit arty at times and is inconsistent.

Tenacious_dex
03-27-2006, 05:34 PM
Well, you could by the singles album, Intergalactic Sonic 7s, which has all their 'hits' on before Meltdown, like Burn baby Burn. It also comes with their B sides CD which has some good songs on it. But I prefer Meltdown. It's their heaviest album, and has my favourite songs like Clones, and Meltdown and Orpheus.
I'd go with one of them. Inter Galactic Sonic 7s also has about 40songs on, compared to about 12 for Meltdwon, so it's better value for money, then again Meltdown has the better songs. Decisions, decisions.....

I dunno if you'd like Ash, you could try them. If you like the White Stripes then The Raconteurs might be a good choice.

I like the Raconteurs. The singles are alright, but i prefer Store Brought Bones to Steady as she goes. I was listening to them on radio one a couple of days ago, and they did a few live tracks. Oh boy, oh boy, it was great! There was one solo and i just thought 'Wow. This is good.' They did Store Brought Bones, but it didnt sound much like the single, which makes me think they'll be excellent live. It's a shame their album only will only have 10 songs on it. I was hoping for a long album.
As good as they are, they're not as good as the White Stripes. The Stripes just have originality and great vibe to them. The Raconteurs aren't as original, or as good, as much I as I like the Stripes, Greenhornes and Brendan Benson, they just can't compare, (even when they're together) to the Stripes.

One thing about garage rock: Everyone says they hate the Whites Stripes, but I think, in reality, they haven't heard enough of their music. You can't judge a band by their hit single---which is, in this case, "Seven Nation Army," most of the time. I hate that song, but I like the White Stripes quite a bit. Same thing with people saying rap sucks, or country sucks, when they haven't even delved enough into the music to find out. You can't do it with a genre, and you can't do it with a band, either.

FrenchyFungus
04-15-2006, 11:59 AM
1st equal - Elephant and S/T
3rd White Blood Cells (The album that broke them, and is very sweet)
4th De Stijl (This is their 2nd album, and is different in a good way, loads of bluesy stuff and slide guitar)
5th Get Behind Me Satan (the newest album and it's different in a bad way IMO - not enough guitar and some pretty bad songs.)

Elephant or WBC is best for an introduction though.

My favourite songs from each album

S/T - When i hear my name, Screwdriver, One more cup of coffee.

De Stijl - Death Letter, You're Pretty Good Lookin, Truth Doesn't Make a Noise (the most beautiful song ever?) and Hello Operator

WBC - Dead leaves...., Fell in love...., Hotel Yorba, I think I smell a rat.

Elephant - Seven Nation Army, Black Math, Hypnotize, Girl you have no faith in medicine.

GBMS - Blue Orchid, Instinct Blues, Red Rain, Take Take Take (These are all very good, but most of the other songs on here are ****)



Also, check out the DVD, it has a very nice selection from the 1st four albums, and will prove to ANYONE that Jack is one of the greatest guitarists and frontmen ever (I'm in love with that version of Death Letter)

I love the version of Death Letter too. The way he just improvises and POW! into the song, it sends shivers down my spine. I have the version he did at Glastonbury and that's excellent too. He is a good guitarist, and alot of people underate him, but when he's live he just shine's through as an excellent guitarist, with lots of energy.

My least favourite album is probably WBC. I'm no sure why, I just can't get into it unlike the others. De Stijl is probably my favourite, as I like that raw bluesy sound, and Death Letter and Your southern can is mine are good covers. All the other songs are good too, which a mixture of slower and more upbeat songs, but all with a bluesy kind of feel.

I actually think it's good. It's good that they can vary the type of music. I didn't like it the first couple of times I heard it, but it grew on me. The denial Twist is probably my favourite song off there at the moment, as it's just so catchy. I think it's an album that you either love or hate. My brother, for example, dislikes most of the other White Stripes songs, but he actualy likes most of GBMS. I prefer the guitar stuff, and blues stuff, (Ball and biscuit especially), but it makes a change. I hope they go back to their older albums style for their next one though.

I laughed REAL hard when i read your comment up there by the way, thanks.

I've actually noticed you around a lot lately, and thanks for critting my song.
