    That is great!  I knew nothing of this, what a treat, thank you!


    The barriers to entry were so low after "The British Invasion" ("Garage" is from every kid in America running out to buy a cheap git, bass, keys or drumkit after hearing the Beatles/Kinks/Stones and rehearsing in their parents' garage) if kids had talent and drive they had a chance.  Today?  The web has helped democratise music in some ways for mainly some sorts of music...but rock bands are largely fvkked.  Ever fewer venues, many of which are pay-to-play or based on "which band are you here to see tonight?"  Does the Middle East still have a "you can't play in Boston for 6 weeks before and 6 weeks after you play here" policy?  Bourgeois capitalist motherfvcker Rock and Roll.


    Another cool 60s Garage band, from Detroit:  The Pleasure Seekers (Suzi Quatro):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddDHPWJIfEY

    The Squires, from Canada.


    Gave rise to a certain musician named Neil Young


     


    Relatedly, a band called The Company (more folk-rock) featured a young Stephen Stills.

    Ah, thanks!  Knew the Squires, but The Company is new to me.  I can't find anything on YT, got a link?

    They were very short-lived...derived from the Au Go Go Singers...and most work from either band has been absorbed into Stephen Stills-proper material.


    There's a version of 'High-Flyin' Bird' on Stills' box set that sounds a bit like proto-Buffalo Springfield (as it should, I guess).
