Johnny Kidd & The Pirates - Shakin' All Over / 1960
Super underrated band right here. Love The Pirates. Shame Johnny Kidd died so young.
Garage rock/proto-punk is my favorite genre from the 60s.
the 60s were a pretty radical and transformative era for both culture and society. when it comes to artists, I think most people remember it as the emergence of The Beatles and how their arrival in America changed pop music for forever, which definitely can't be overstated. but there was also a lot of eclectic experimentation going on which would come to define much of the modern musical landscape as we know it today. from electronic to hip hop and most things in between; they can trace their popular roots to some point during the 1960's.
the Rolling Stones and Beatles dominated much of the latter half of the decade, and they're great of course, but I'm still in love with the late Motown influences that survived the 50's.

I've been a huge fan of The Doors since I was 15 or 16. I remember going into this nice pool hall, in the city centre. We would hang out there, smoke, sometimes drink and play pool when we were teenagers. I remember they had this brilliant jukebox and the music was always loud. This place was built of an old Georgian style building. It had some arcade machines and lots of little rooms and up and downstairs. I remember on occasion going in and hearing Light My Fire ripping through the place during Manzerek's solo. It was captivating. That sparked my interest. Then I remember going over to a friends and smoking a J. The Doors were on. It was the first time I started hearing their other stuff. It was a "best of" but I borrowed and loved it. Since then, I've got all their albums, box set and live stuff.
Listening to it now. Wow. It's a crazy track. The Doors are mental.
Used to frequent this dive bar in the city centre that was the last dive bar in a tourist part of town. There was a basement bar. It was dark and dank. It also had a pool table and a jukebox. We would go in and drink there after school. I looked the oldest and would buy the pints. I was poor and usually my mate who always had plenty of cash would pay for them. It was a nice exchange. We would always put on The Doors and singalong. Good times.
I feel very fortunate to have seen and heard him live a number of times
Love Beck sampled this on Jack-Ass on his album Odelay,
