It’s the revival

After a more than amazing email from my father outlining an epic 1968 encounter with Wilson Pickett, I was familiarized with some 1960/70’s garage rock bands. This email sent me out on a search for some of the less mainstream garage rock bands I was not familiar with

Luke and the Apostles was the band that stuck out the most in his email, a Toronto blues group consisting of Mike McKenna (Canadian guitar legend). The track ‘Make Me High’ almost brings me back to the early 70’s, an era I sometimes wish I was apart of.

Another Toronto Yorkville area band, The Ugly Ducklings are a band that have continued on throughout the decades releasing their most recent album in 2008. I’m partial to their early tunes.

I’m sure there will be more added to this in the near future

Props to Garage Hangover for mp3’s and info
