I can’t remember how I came across this song, but as a result I found this great music blog, Garage Hangover that digs really deep into 1960’s garage. I’m really excited to have found this.
Sinsister Purpose has a pretty fascinating story. This particular recording is a submission to a battle of the bands contest that was annually held in–surprise–India! The events were thrown by a company that branded itself as the “oldest cigarette company with a young heart,” trying to attach itself to the rock scene. Reading further into the comments on GH, I was astonished to learn that India had a thriving garage music scene in the 60’s and 70’s. Who knew?
