Album Notes
Out Of The Garage Volume One, could just as well been called "Now That's What I Call Garage Rock" Not 1 Clunker on It - Review by BLOWUPRADIO

01. Mark Lindsay - "Like Nothing That You've Seen" 3.27 Mark Lindsay has had two Coolest Songs In The World on The Underground Garage" syndicated radio show hosted by Steven Van Zandt (Bruce Springsteen) – It is the first one as the leading track on this release. Mark Lindsay is the 60's pop icon and former lead singer of the 60's band Paul Revere & The Raiders (Columbia Records/Bongo Boy Records).

02. The WeeGees - "You Gotta Work "3.07 Exclusive new song by The WeeGees - a garage rock track "You Gotta Work" (Nathaniel Mayer 1944 -2008). A churning funk-dance rhythm slice with the hardest-edged Southern R&B and vibes of Garage Rock flavors produced by Gar Francis. (The Doughboys/Mark Lindsay) and mixed by Danny Caruso.
Band Members:Vocals: Wayne Olivieri, Guitars: Vinnie Melito , Bass: Tony Prochilo, Farfisa Organ: Gar Francis
Harmonica - Wayne Olivieri, Saxophone - Vic Cappetta, Drums – Vincent Brnicevic
Recorded at Sonic Boom Studios, Raritan, NJ

03.Rage Of Angels - "Nothing To Brag About" 3.23 In the mid '80s, Mia Moravis (vocals, guitar) and Nancy Catedral (vocals, bass) started a DC/Baltimore area garage band rock duo, called B*I*S (derived from a joke about their apparel). They proceeded to the studio to record three of Mia's original songs, one of which was Nothing to Brag About, which features guest guitarist John Jennings (Mary Chapin Carpenter, BeauSoleil, Iris Dement, Indigo Girls, et al.). The song garnered regional radio coverage and then a Billboard Songwriting Top Ten nomination. It became obvious to Mia and Nancy that they should expand the band, and they auditioned and brought aboard Anna Shauer (guitar, backing vocals), Lori Dale (lead guitar) and Shirley Purvis (drums), and RAGE OF ANGELS was born.
Lori had written music for a song, but had no lyrics or name for it. Mia provided both, and that song is Half A Mile Away. The band moved into a bigger, better performance-ready garage, where crowds gathered to watch the new all-girl band. They proceeded to a friend's small home studio to record the song. This song, too, garnered a Billboard Songwriting Top Ten nomination. Both songs were recently rescued from dusty analog tape and converted to the digital medium. (John passed away in October 2015, and Mia and Nancy are grateful to Bongo Boy Records for the opportunity to pay him homage). Web Site

04.The Accelerators - "Take It Or Leave It" 2.59 They released a number of self-produced vinyl records and cassettes and were featured on comps such as the Weird New Jersey collections with standout titles such as "Shades of Death Road". Their brand of fast and loud "power pop" music made them local club favorites throughout the late 1980s. Web Site

05.Rage Of Angels - "Half A Mile Away" 3.46

06.KickBend - "Spin" 2.42 "What sets us apart from most bands is we don't try to sound like the latest fad. We draw upon our musical sensibilities to create honest and moving songs." - KickBend

07.The Catholic Girls - "Broken Records" 3.34. The Catholic Girls were born when schoolgirls Gail Petersen and Roxy Andersen put their guitars together to form the first all-female band from New Jersey that would be signed to a major label. With Doreen Holmes on drums, The Catholic Girls released an album on MCA both in the USA and Australia as well as a special Armed Forces Edition. They embarked on 2 national tours, received widespread commercial airplay and debuted on MTV to the music of their new wave anthem, Boys Can Cry. In 1999, the original album was revived and released in CD format, and fans from the 80s were thrilled to have the girls in plaid back, as were many new fans they were making along the way.

08.The Chords UK " I Can't Let Go" 3:03 The Chords UK are a 1970s British pop music group, commonly associated with the 1970s mod revival, who had several hits in their homeland, before the decline of the trend brought about their break-up. They were one of the more successful groups to emerge during the revival, and they re-formed with the four original members for a UK tour during 2010.

09. Zombie Garden Club "Hey, Little School Girl" 2"59 Zombie Garden Club is Fuzztones. Eternal Garage of the expanding mind. Fenders. Vintage tube amps. Vox Continentals. Yardbirds. Seeds. Standells. Blues Magoos. Did I mention fuzztones? Thumping kicks. Cracking snares.
Retro/modern. Kinda loud. Kinda now. ZOMBIE GARDEN CLUB is Johnny Douglas. From Toronto. Nashville now by way of L.A. Up from the dust and the dirt. Interstates snaking across the great, throbbing heart of America. And big guitars. Plugged in. Turned up. Hearts full of rain and eyes wide open. Fast cars. Late nights. Deep diamond veins to mine. Storms and the mornings after. Two lane black top over the edge of the world into a breathless sky. Girls smile. The band plays on.
ZOMBIE GARDEN CLUB Dig it if you wanna.

10. The Satisfactors - "Sweet Sunshine" 3:39 joins this release with their 2nd single that is climbing the charts in The Top 40 in The Netherlands - De Ned FM. "Sweet Sunshine" is track No. 10 on this release. The band members are Kenny Aaronson (Joan Jett/The Yardbirds), Gar Francis (The Doughboys/Mark Lindsay), Kurt Reil (The Grip Weeds) and Bruce Ferguson (The Easy Outs).

Steel Notes Magazine, February, 2016 Issue Music Review
Out Of The Garage, Vol. 1 - By Dana Saravia – Life-long rock & roller, current music critic and Girl From Baltimore.
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 WeeGees 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.
