My 1st non “Meet The Band” post in a long time. This is an Album from 2013 that was not mentioned as an Album of the Year best but really deserved to be . At least for me , garage is what makes me smile and it reminds me that I started listening to music all those years ago, because it was fun.
I Need You Bad documents the San Francisco garage rock scene (and a little bit beyond) as it exists here and now.
Curated by one of its most vital members, Sonny Smith, the compilation features some bands you already know (Sonny & The Sunsets, The Sandwitches, Warm Soda) and others you’ll wish you had discovered sooner.
Featuring artwork by Shannon Shaw (Shannon and the Clams), I Need You Bad is a perfect snapshot into one of the most influential and thriving music scenes in the country, if not the world.
