VA - Potato Chip-Crunchy Dunwich Garage [2022] (2 x CDs)


VA - Potato Chip-Crunchy Dunwich Garage [2022] (2 x CDs)

Thundering thumpers from the Dunwich Records catalog, featuring the Shadows Of Knight, The Luv’d Ones, Things To Come, The Banshees, and absolutely no crumbs!

Chicago was home to one of the most vibrant American rock ‘n’ roll scenes of the mid-sixties and the most prolific outlet for Chicago’s rockin’ teen sound between 1966-67 was Dunwich Records. From its very first commercial release, “Gloria” by the Shadows of Knight, to classics by the Del-Vetts, the Banshees, Saturday’s Children and Knaves (to name just a few), the label was, in retrospect, arguably the most consistent garage rock production house of its era.  The label, with its cryptically named subsidiaries like Yuggoth Music, outrageously hip art department, and amazing roster of garage bands, was formed by three jazz buffs: Eddie Higgins, George Badonsky and Bill Traut.

  2. Hi Butterboy, thanks for your fast answer!! It would be great if it is possible to share the Eddie Piller Garage sampler next month or in April!! Greetings

  3. Having been raised about 100 miles from Chicago during the mid and late 1960s, this brings back the nostalgia for this Illinois resident. The radio stations, WCFL and WLS would boom these bands and many of these particular songs on a regular rotation! A Million Times, Thank You!
