Steel Notes Magazine | Music Review
Out Of The Garage, Vol. 1
By Dana Saravia – Life-long rock & roller, current music critic and Girl From Baltimore
(www.steelnotesmagazine.com)

Being a huge fan of garage rock, I always look forward to hearing compilations that feature a variety of garage bands. Never knowing what you're going to find, but always hoping it will be something special is half the fun of hearing any compilation. Thankfully, Out Of The Garage, Vol. 1 is fun and then some all the way through with a variety of garage bands each with their own style and presence.

The legendary Mark Lindsay provides one hell of a strong lead off track with "Like Nothing That You've Seen", which also sounds like nobody else. With a seductive vibe and great groove, this track is an instant earworm. The Wee Gees tear it up on the second track with "You Gotta Work". A high energy blast featuring some fabulous sax, it sounds like a lost 60s gem. It's impossible not to turn this up and dance. Next up is Rage Of Angels, an all girl garage band that combine the sweet melodies of 60s girl groups with an edgier pop sound. "Nothing To Brag About" (featuring the late John Jennings as a guest guitarist providing some stand out work) is an FU break up song that leaves a strong impression. NJ natives The Accelerators are next with "Take It Or Leave It". With lyrics like "I love you, but I hate you/I want you, but I don't need you", it's power pop full of swagger and attitude, showing the band at their best. Track 5 brings us "Half A Mile Away", the second song by Rage Of Angels to be included here. "Half A Mile Away" continues in the same style of the earlier song with a bit more musical crunch added. KickBend is next with "Spin", a song about information overload with a straightforward beat and a dash of humour. The seventh track is "Broken Record", the latest from The Catholic Girls. Using sparkling vocal harmonies and fuzzed out guitar, the Girls create a memorable pop song about longing for lasting love that's a worthy addition to their discography and to this compilation. Next up is The Chords UK making a very welcome return with their single "I Can't Let Go". One of the original bands of the 70s mod revival in the UK, this song is a knockout with all the smarts and attitude you'd expect and then some. Zombie Garden Club bring us the ninth track here, "Hey Little School Girl". With bright organ taking the lead and snarly guitar threaded in, this song has an mid 60s vibe would sound right at home next to Shadows of Knight or Stones from that era and it sounds great here too. The final track of the album is The Satisfactors' "Sweet Sunshine". A super group featuring members of The Grip Weeds and The Doughboys among other well-known and well respected garage rock stars, the combination of songwriting and performing can be heard in this track. A blast of sunny summer energy and melodic rock with a danceable groove, this song is well chosen to close out this compilation.

Out Of The Garage Volume 1 is one of the best current garage rock compilations I've had the pleasure to hear recently. There were strong songs from a variety of bands and the songs included let each band's style and personality shine through. An excellent compilation from start to finish.
