      Garage Blues

      What are your favorite garage-blues bands or songs? What old blues songs covered by garage/R&R bands (of ANY era), or original songs done by garage acts, are at the top of your lists?

      I'll start with one by Poison 13:

      Man , I almost forgot .  GREAT EXAMPLE OF AN EARLY pUNK bLUES 45 WOULD BE  THE UNCALLED FOUR'S "Grind Her Up" b/w "Cotton Fields". Based in Waco (!) , the band centered around marrieds ,  Randy and Donna Reeves , two Rock'n'Roll lifers (Sadly , Donna left this life a few years ago. She was a great , great lady). RANDY WOULD GO ON TO WRITE FOR NEXT bIG tHING , AND PLAY A CRUCIAL FACTOR IN GETTING Ronnie Dawson's classic  material released on vinyl. HE ALSO RECORDED JACK STARR'S LAST SESSIONS , MADE VIDEOS ON HIM , AND LED NOTORIOUS THE ROBERT TILTON FAN CLUB.The Reeves dropped out of performing upon starting  a family. Donna hosted a Rockabilly program on KNON radio in Dallas....THE BAND WAS ORIGINALLY JOINED BY JEFF SATAN , later with Sata's Cheerleaders and Satan's Satellites , and aspired to a sound something akin to The Cramps ,Tav Falco and early solo Alex Chilton , but , came up with something entirely their own , a truly fucked up car-crash blend off PUNK AND BLUES that foresaw the rise of The Gibson Bros. THE BAND MADE A VIDEO FOR "GRIND HER UP" a few years later. Look it up on You Tube.

      Check out John Schooley's last couple albums... Dead Mall Blues and The Man Who Rode a Mule Around the World. Good stuff!
