Sunday Shuffle: The Standells

This Sunday we are bringing you a nice greasy heap of music all the way from 1966. The Standells area an early 60s garage band from California. However, a ton of people think they are from Massachusetts because of their song "Dirty Water". Although "Dirty Water" was the only single that ever made it to the billboard top 40, the Standells had a couple of pretty good run. Their musical career effectively died due to the release of their fifth album "Try It". The media deemed the lyrics too raunchy and obscene but in retrospect, the lyrics are remarkably tame. You should check out the Standells, they are pretty great...if you like California acid-esque garage rock.
