60's Garage Punk – Psychobilly Freakout

60's Garage Punk

The Sonics – Psycho

First, let’s define our terms: garage punk is North American. Groups round the world made similar music – snarling, howling teen angst, inspired by R&B and powered by guitars and organs – but true garage punk comes from the US and, in a very few instances (the Haunted, for example), Canada. It blurs at its beginning and its end – some of the early 60s frat-rock bands and the wilder rock’n’roll groups are, fundamentally, garage bands, while in the late 60s garage punk began to blur into psychedelia.
