Garage Rock Revival

619 Garage Rock Revival Roundtable

Genre Dissection - Roundtable

Release year

We revisit the late 90s Garage Rock Revival by bands like The White Stripes and trace the lineage back to the 60s until the 2000s

Author & Special Guests

Garage rock can be a catch-all term that rubs shoulders with punk, rockabilly, surf, and more. But thanks to a variety of known and lesser-known bands, there has always been a group of dedicated musicians writing and playing revved up and relatively simple rock that traces its lineage back to the primitive and raw sounds of 60s that popped up after the British Invasion with roots in American rhythm and blues. After a very underground 80s, the sound returned in fits and starts with bands like Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and later The White Stripes, The Hives, The Strokes, and plenty of other bands starting with "The." We dig into the whole sound, the local scenes that helped foster the sound over decades, and much more.
