What's that noise coming from the garage?

A Listmania! list by goeievent
 
Psycho-Sonic
1.  Psycho-Sonic by The Sonics
The list author says:
  "1964, and Seattle's 'polite society' was appalled by The Sonics' filthy, distorted, R and B (in the old sense) and Jerry Roslie's lascivious howl."
£12.08   Used & New from: £9.49
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Funhouse
2.  Funhouse by Iggy & The Stooges
The list author says:
  "In which 'fun' meant spiteful guitars and an ever-present threat of violence. Don't believe those who say it was only nihilism: it was a thing of power and beauty."
£5.59   Used & New from: £2.32
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (44 customer reviews)

Stupidity
3.  Stupidity by Dr. Feelgood
The list author says:
  "Most live albums are rotten, but this captures the razor-sharp R and B (in the old sense) menace of the Essex boys, playing their own material and some 'Black' standards."
£12.72   Used & New from: £6.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (33 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Pin Ups
4.  Pin Ups by David Bowie
The list author says:
  "'Eh, what's he doing here?' 'Giving stuff by the Easybeats, The Pretty Things, Them, The Merseys and other 60s Beat bands a good punky going-over, that's what. All right?'"
£7.05   Used & New from: £4.32
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (53 customer reviews)

Damned Damned Damned
5.  Damned Damned Damned by Damned
The list author says:
  "The Damned had no time for waffle about the 'significance' of punk. To them it was just 'rock 'n' roll and it was fun, and it was tuneful. 'New Rose' is here too - what a riff!"
Used & New from: £24.40
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

SUPERFUZZ BIGMUFF
6.  SUPERFUZZ BIGMUFF by Mudhoney
The list author says:
  "In a basic studio, set all the dials to 'Overload'; play sloppily; jump on the wah-wah pedal; howl like an old bluesman; leave the bum notes, distortion and feedback in place. And it's quite melodic!"
Used & New from: £6.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Boss Hog
7.  Boss Hog by Boss Hog
The list author says:
  "Vocalists Cristina Martinez and hubby Jon Spencer exchange barbs over a dirty punk-soul sound drawing on the last five decades. Varied and distinctive."
£14.89   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

The Hard Stuff
8.  The Hard Stuff by Wayne Kramer
The list author says:
  "The sleeve notes say the ex-MC5 legend is 'trying to wreck the place' with his hard guitar. True, but the melodies are great and the lyrics are humanistic. Wayne's too old for trendy self-pity."
£11.90   Used & New from: £2.98

Fiends Of Dope Island
9.  Fiends Of Dope Island by Cramps
The list author says:
  "More old 'uns! Rockabilly, surf guitars, a B-movie fixation, ghoulishness and weird sex don't make for complex music, but this is prime rock 'n' roll, and Ivy coaxes beautiful noises from her guitar."
£39.95   Used & New from: £8.70
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

The Night Before the Day the Earth Stood Still
10.  The Night Before the Day the Earth Stood Still by New Bomb Turks
The list author says:
  "The kings of garage punk, with their trademark Dead Kennedys meet The Rolling Stones meet The Supersuckers sound. Good production and mixing. Turks 1, Swedes 0."
£14.39   Used & New from: £4.32

Veni Vidi Vicious
11.  Veni Vidi Vicious by The Hives
The list author says:
  "One of the poppiest and least raw records in this list, but it may be a good place to start if you are new to this garage lark. Turks 1, Swedes 1."
£8.66   Used & New from: £1.95
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Groupsounds
12.  Groupsounds by Rocket From The Crypt
The list author says:
  "Elvis meets Stax in matching bowling shirts! Passionate guitar- and brass-driven blue collar rock 'n' roll; mostly fast stuff."
Used & New from: £2.94
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

In the Long Still Night
13.  In the Long Still Night by Gallon Drunk
The list author says:
  "Suave, dark, menacing and intense, sort of PJ Harvey meet The Stooges meet a Philly soul band, but quite unique. The opening track hangs on one of the dirtiest, most suggestive riffs ever."
£28.60   Used & New from: £6.93
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Rid Of Me
14.  Rid Of Me by PJ Harvey
The list author says:
  "Raw gutter blues and typical Steve Albini engineering. I've never heard it in a department store lift or a football ground, and I don't expect to!"
£5.82   Used & New from: £2.66
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)

Lucky 7
15.  Lucky 7 by Reverend Horton Heat
The list author says:
  "Elvis meets Motorhead! Tales of dodgy cars, beer and women; bags of energy (except on the Morricone-esque Duel...); bags of feeling; expert playing. Tuneful Texan psychobilly of the highest order."
£19.99   Used & New from: £5.87
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

White Blood Cells
16.  White Blood Cells by The White Stripes
The list author says:
  "Minimalistic, bluesy, raw and tuneful. That the band is only a two-piece is amazing."
£6.85   Used & New from: £1.07
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (60 customer reviews)

Electric Children
17.  Electric Children by Monkeywrench
The list author says:
  "Side project for Mark and Steve from Mudhoney plus pals from other bands. Rootsy but rollicking; Johnny-Cash-gone-punk. Good stuff, and Mark Arm is as funny as ever."
£7.48   Used & New from: £3.97
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

MOTHERFUCKERS BE TRIPPIN'
18.  MOTHERFUCKERS BE TRIPPIN' by Supersuckers
The list author says:
  "The joys of over-amplification! Sounds like an unholy alliance of The Ramones, Motorhead, Thin Lizzy and AC/DC. The final track is particularly fast and OTT, but The 'Suckers ALWAYS kick posterior."
£6.29   Used & New from: £5.00
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Steady The Buffs
19.  Steady The Buffs by Buff Medways
The list author says:
  "Billy Childish's latest band, playing a hybrid of 1964 Beat band sounds and 1977-style punk. Ultra-basic riffs, manic drumming and no polish whatsoever. Mark Arm and The White Stripes approve!"
Used & New from: £6.93
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Named and Shamed
20.  Named and Shamed by Flaming Stars
The list author says:
  "Suave garage noir from North London, recorded live on analogue equipment. Reverbed guitars and wonky old organs. Rarely flat out but atmospheric and extremely tuneful. Class."
Used & New from: £31.07

We Will Fall Iggy Pop ....
21.  We Will Fall Iggy Pop .... 
The list author says:
  "Tribute to the artist most worthy of it! Worth it for The Misfits' ripping version of 'I Got a Right' alone."
£7.84   Used & New from: £0.45
