Destroy That Boy! more girls with guitars

Josh here….So I haven’t been doing my part in updating the blog for about 3 weeks and it’s time for me to start pickin up my slack. Thumbs up to Mike for keepin up the blog and let’s not forget J Bogus for his help keepin things moving as well. I took a trip to NYC (1st time visitor) and roamed around for week going to shows and galleries…seein the sights. Went to the amazing Other Music and picked up a few items, some of which will make an appearence on the blog this coming week. And for Round 1, I present you with this rockin’ compilation of all-girl garage bands. The 60’s garage sound is perfect for this pre-Summer season…..ahhh Sunshine Time, “You Turned My Head Around” was reason enough for me to purchase this comp.

Here’s some words from the album notes-
“DESTROY THAT BOY!” is the sequel to our “Girls With Guitars” collection of 2004. As with its preecessor, the focus is on all-girl bands of the 60’s – greet New York’s very chic What Four, the guitar-wielding She Trinity, Merseyside’s very own “female Beatles” the Liverbirds, the rockin’ Debutantes and the Feminine Complex – and female groups and soloists who recorded in the required “garage girl” style, but this time with more of an internantional flavour. And yes, that the THE Ann-Margret’s name you see on the track list.
