Wow wow wow-- the crazy '60s obscuro garage comp series Back from the Grave, which were released in 8 volumes from 1983-1992 by Crypt is out with a 9th and 10th in 2015! (released on one CD). Raw, untrained youthful "garage punk" is here, and there's so much weirdness and humanity here. What a surprise, what a treat.

No FCCs.

1. (2:20) ******** Awesome! Spare drumming kicks up into 20th gear! "Here it comes now..." The Pastels were 15 years old, from Pasco, Washington.
2. (2:11) ****** Zombies cover, with crazy breakneck surf drumming, and swank organ stings, into raging organ solo. (From St Louis Park, MN)
3. (3:16) **** Crazy organ-soaked threat-- "You're gonna die!") [Joplin, MO-- only two copies of this record exist]
4. (2:52) **** Animals-ish; more organ; lyrics about grave-robbers. Ah-ah-ah chorus is so great. [Greenwood, IN]
5. (2:35) **** Ah, great-- the singer sings like he's being stabbed. (Tamborine is the Why-Nots' typo, not mine)
6. (3:47) **** Great, murky drums, strained weak vox-- really really long at 3:45. Greatly amateurish, wonderful. [Burbank, CA]
7. (2:32) ***** Ominous roller-rink sounding organs. Clunky in the best, rawest way, with insane guitar break. [Paintsville, KY]
8. (2:56) ***** Ska-ish organ to start, with 4 super-fuzzy git breaks, and great talk-singing. [Chicago]
9. (2:18) **** Cool R&B stomper. "Ask me no questions... i'll tell you no lies". Sam the Shammy organ-type. [CA]
10. (2:31) ****** Super-fuzzy pure garage beast from 1965.. breakneck as hell. [Dallas, TX]
11. (2:49) ******* Wow, sounds like post-punk (also like The Intelligence)! Cowbell and angular drums and fuzzy backbeat, with clear vox. Just weird as hell. [Texas]
12. (1:59) ***** Jugband influences plus crazy organ solo-- murky and punky and wonderful. [Hollywood]
13. (1:56) **** Crazy self-released recording (two copies ever printed). Big, earthy vox: "Animal..." [Caldwell, NJ]
14. (2:27) ****** More slinky drums and bass, snotty vox low in mix. So snarly and amateurish; great. [Harrisburg, PA]
15. (2:32) ***** Super shambly, loping cockeyed vox. [Lansford, PA]
16. (3:35) ****** This one really drives! (The lead singer's real name was James Bond, no stage name here) [Sand Spring, OK]
17. (2:13) ***** Really sharp Nuggets-worthy piece, with clean production. [North Hollywood]
18. (2:21) ********* Crazy scream at start! Really weird, that in era of "96 Tears", this just flat-out says "69". Crazy demented wacked-out wonderful. [Brownsville, TN]
19. (2:31) **** Under curtain of fuzz, thin awkward cool vox. [Ringgold, GA]
20. (2:52) **** The distortion here is really lossy, but a cool effect. [Cedar Lake, IA]
21. (2:31) **** Brutal dumb forceful vox, kinda proto-kraut. [Eugene, OR]
22. (2:55) **** Sharp-edged guitar, blue-eyed soul vox. Tons of energy, but clean production. [Cincinnati, OH]
23. (2:31) ***** Donovan Cover. But crazy fuzz and demented vox. [Cedar Lake, IA]
24. (2:58) ********* Crazy instro becomes jungle beat, then demented hayseed "KEEP THAT TURTLE OUT OF MY CABBAGE PATCH" Yes yes yes. [Las Vegas]
25. (2:19) ***** Swank organ with heavy blues beat. Cool, swaggering. [Shreveport, LA]
26. (2:20) **** Really shambly awkward great stuff. [Bristol, RI]
27. (2:36) **** Now this is blues-garage with a sneer. [Bay Area]
28. (2:02) ***** Hiccupy haunted vox, like a nightmare whirlwind. [Corpus Christi]
29. (2:27) ***** Murky fuzzy stomper. [unknown]
30. (2:22) ****** Sonics cover, but much wackier-- goofball vox and giggling. [unknown]
