GARAGE ROCK U.S.A. 2001
U.S. documentary. Cool look at the mid 60s garage rock phenomenon that occurred as a result of the Beatles and British invasion of America. Tons of rare photos and interviews examine garage rock in the context of an original, authentic American musical art form.

The sound evolved from "fun 45s music" to "serious LP music"—from rock n roll edge to experimental psychedelic. Interviews include: Sky Saxon, Bun E. Carlos, Jimy Sohns, an ethnomusicology Ph.D candidate (!?)

Tons of great bands are heard and discussed, including: The Seeds, Shadows Of Knight, ? And The Mysterians, Knickerbockers, Count 5, Syndicate of Sound, Standells, Kingsmen, Castaways, Love, Sonics, Electric Prunes, many others. Garage Rock USA!

Plus these bonus selections...

BEATLES MINNESOTA MANIA 1995
U.S. documentary. Cool look at the 1960s Minneapolis teen music garage band scene and how the arrival of the Beatles changed everything. Interviews with several 60s Minneapolis groups, including the Trashmen, the Castaways, the Accents, Mike Waggoner and the Bops, the Gestures, the Jades, the Escapades, the Underbeats and others.

Minnesota record labels included Garrett and Soma records. The Beatles only performed once in Minnesota. The date was August 21, 1965. Interviews with fans who attended the concert and local rival disc jockeys Sam Sherwood (KDWB) and Bill Diehl (WDGY). Terrific close-up silent color footage of Beatles performing. Press conference footage. George is presented with a new Rickenbacker.

MUNSTERS, THE 1965
"Far Out Munsters." Mar-18-65. U.S. TV show. The great garage band, The Standells rent 1313 Mockingbird Lane for rockin' and rollin' beatnik weekend of hipster fun! Herman recites beat poetry. Marilyn is the plain one...again! The Standells rock out on the Beatle tune, "I Want To Hold Your Hand" and the original, "Do The Ringo." Classic 1960s TV show!
