Garage rock in this form was the start of what would later be called hard rock and it's later formats. But in 1966 this was hard garage band stuff and was very similiar to the yardbirds of the period. It's got the snotty attitude of punk in a way even. but true hard rock was around yet, but the classic song 'psychotic reaction' is pure rave up jam , the type that would infjuence two genres punk and hard rock. The other songs are pretty good too, songs like 'pretty big mouth' and scuh are good enough to be on a yardbirds cd. ANd that's saying alot. This is great stuff and although this band was only around for a little while they made a killer record in 1966 terms. ANd even today the music sounds fun to rockin to typical midsixties more aggressive music. A little bit of the who , yardbirds and other bands influence and such. It's good stuff if you love the midsixites rock scene. ALthough the title track is so smokin that it's almost protometal , the rest isn't but it's good.
