One would be hard pressed to find a better example of the hormone-enriched, attitude-laden 1960s garage rock opus than So What!! by San Diego’s Lyrics. Chris Gaylord's incredible rant over a pounding, almost blueswailing accompaniment on this late 1965 nugget never fails to hit the spot.
Coupled with its equally snotty flip They Can't Hurt Me, this double-whammy firebomb is an exasperatingly expensive item in its original incarnation, but we have made this great sound facsimile available at a fraction of the cost to accompany the new Big Beat garage psych collection Blow My Mind!. Grab ‘em while stocks last!
